This has been a 5 year plus build doing all the work myself, except the paint.
I did not want anything crazy just a clean rust free driver that my wife could drive for the grocery getter and sat cruise.

Bought just a shell at an auction so it has been fun finding all the pieces
:D







Billet Specialities 7-17 and 8-17 wheels, 9" rear diff, 700r4 with lock up conv.


Griffin Rad, Vintage air Cond, Button Head S.S fasteners used were practicle.


350 ,with vintage air front runner serpentine system,original firewall just cleaned up with no wires. Started it up Yesterday:happy0030:


I have not finished the interior yet,but all is ready the good Folks at Ciadella Interiors did the Carpets and Panels,great service.


'Fat Man Front Clip '

I still have lots of work but I can actually see the light:scared0016:

Gary, what an awesome job you did on that car!!! Of course you'll tell your wife to park a quarter mile away from any stray rolling carriage when she gets the groceries!
You'll also have to educate her to every little detail about that car so when people ask her " what's it got in it?" she can list about a hundred thing about the car. I have a feeling she's gonna like doing that so much she'll be going to the grocery store every day!!
You'll know somethings up when she starts saying things like" Oh my, now how did I forget to get bread when I was at the grocery store just yesterday?...Gary, I'm taking the Chevy, be right back dear.
