Well, I'm glad to see you learned how to post pics.
You're gonna need to keep up on this new found talent as this swap progresses.

We'll expect at least daily updates and pics when you get started.

If I knew that the casting could break at any time, I'd be doing this swap for sure as well.

I like your chevy. There are a few of those where I live, pretty rare it seems. You have a few more gems under the tarps.

hi brian,thanks for the help with the pictures, more to follow later. it's actually going to be awhile before we start work on this project because I am going to sell the Cord engine, transmission, and all drive components. All of these parts are in great running condition and should command a great price. The components will stay on the car so perspective buyers can see how they run.
regards
Jerry

I think that's a smart move. Many times I've passed on a deal just because the condition couldn't be verified. This takes that problem out of the picture.

hi dan, thanks for the reply,you're right about this cord being a great start,this is originally an arizona car which recieved a full frame off resto from 1971-1973 by a noted resto firm in ariz. it has all the metal it was born with ,no patch panels,it is one of only 6 built with the optional leather interior. it's only been driven 4,ooo miles since complete,i was very,very lucky to find such a nice example,this cord will be treated with the greatest respect. regards,jerry

Please consider, Half the fun of driving an old car is the appreciation you get from people who stop to look. Your probably going to get the same reaction from people on the street as you got here when you first presented your idea. 90% negitive. I hope you have thick skin, people are going to call you every name under the sun. Don't say you weren't warned.

Appreciation from fellow hotrodders is all that matters.

The rest of the whiners can just go jump in the lake.
