When I bought my 57’ Belair, I had all intentions to restomod this mostly stock car. There is nothing wrong with this if that is what will make you happy. I ultimately decided to do the upgrades that Bill had suggested plus front disc brakes. I could not be any happier. It has been my experience that there are typically 10 resto mods for every 1 car in stock condition when I go out to local shows or cruise ins. My time capsule helps it stand out in a crowd. But it is all about enjoying your car. No matter what you do to it, I am sure that will be accomplished.Welcome to the site, and all stock is just fine.
There are a few upgrades (anti-sway bars, dual master cylinders) that are good but still keep it looking stock.
