hi i'm new to the site. I have a 57 210 4 door wagon. It's still pretty early in the build. Here is what i have gotten accomplished so far...

-15 inch wheels
-new floor, inner and outer rockers.
-new electronic wiper system.
-ball joints
-wheel bearings
-various trim pieces
-grill
-tail lights
-bucket seats
-guage lens
-steering wheel
-brakes
-exaust
-mirror(rear view and side)

right now I am just getting it ready to pass the out of province inspection. It runs and steers great for manual steering and drum brakes. That will be the next mod. It currently has a straight six - three in the tree. It runs great but does not love the highway, but good enough for cruising for now. I have throttle body 350 and a 396 that may go in. I cannot decide which one. But like I said brakes, steering and suspension come before horsepower...

Hello!

:sign0016: to TriFive! Sounds like you've accomplished a lot already! I think you've got your priorities correct - Drivability First - then Horsepower. Keep us informed on your progress and you know we love pics! :wavey:

what engine would you go with

throttle body 350 for the drivability. probably do a mild cam and headers.

or 396 just for the cool factor

which would you go with and why?
