I picked this car up at a car show on 6/13 in west Springfield ma for what ideally was a great price. Came with moon eyes and brand new cooker wide whites. I also bought a set of 1957 plates that will go on next year when I do antique insurance. So far I need to order rockers panels and an upper cowl which both have some bad rust problems.

So far I have ordered a new gas tank and gas tank straps to replace my current tank that leaks if I put more then 8 gallons in it.

Does anyone happen to know where I can buy a good looking front plate bracket by any chance?
A few pics for you guys




Thanks for looking. Comments feedback or advice is always welcomed

That wagon has been for sale for quite awhile...if I remember correctly, it had some pretty serious upper cowl rot...

It does sadly. I am actually looking around at venders to order one right now.

I'm sure the vendors will have the front plate bracket you want ,too.:tu
Yeah I've seen them I just don't know anything about tri five part vendors or quality. Probably will just order one until I find a good quality vender for all my parts

It was titled as a 210. i wanna go through the vin to find out exactly what ot os and came from the factory with. It looks so much better in pics then in real life. Hopefully by next year I'm hoping the few rusty spots will be fixed.

Haven't been able to do anything to the car other then stock up on parts. But while I was out finding parts for my dads 50 Chevy a guy gave me a old school jack that he was going to scrap. Well I finally unloaded from my truck and found out it works great. Now I just have to clean if up. Not bad for a free jack.


Hopefully once the body shop finishes my dad's truck I can start posting some real progress pics of my wagon.

Well between leaving my job to go back to school and just life in general I ha e had zero time or money to put into the wagon. But today I decided to pull the old motor out that was burning oil and just like absolute crap. Hopefully next weekend I can drop in another 350 I have and start driving my car a little more
