Hello from Myrtle Beach

Hey, ( thats "hello" in southcarolinese)

I am Chuck Goings, Lieutenent with the Horry County Sheriffs Office, B Squad shift commander at J. Reuben Long Detention Center (HCDC). My wife ( you think you got problems.... she's a divorce lawyer!) and I live in Little River SC. I have a 54 Chevy BelAir convertible (Pueblo Tan and White), that has been in my family since the late 60's. I am now embarking on a restoration/modification program.The car is completely stock and it will continue to look that way. I rebuilt the top end last year with all new valves, guides, push rods, seats and everything else. This year I plan to install new rods/rings/pistons/cam/bearings and rebuild the cast iron Power Glide. In the process I will install Fenton headers, dual exhaust (I have to cut a flanged opening in the right side of the X cross-member) Edelbrock dual carb manifold. I really haven't decided if I am going with Rodchester carbs or switch to a Holly/Weber set up. I am interested in talking to anyone who has some experience with hot rodding in-line Chevy sixes (235 CI).

Thanks,

Chuck

Welcome to the site Dropthumbs. That Chevy convert sounds great. Good to hear you are upholding the family tradition with that Bel Air.

You will find lots of info and opinions here. To get the most out of the site check out the Knowledge Base and use the search function to get quick answers to your questions. How about some pics. Better yet start a Project Journal so we can all follow along with the build.

Do you know about this site:

http://www.inliners.org/

Good luck with your project.

Not many convertibles in Saskatchewan, eh?

Thanks for the reply. I have been to the inliners site and found it very useful. My big concerns are with carburation. I have two B model Rodchesters with the automatic choke, but I have never been satisfied with them. I have yet to put the dual manifold on as I have been told that unless the two carbs are jetted and adjusted to the same calibrations they will not work. I am most impressed with the Weber/Holley two barrel, and may just go with that set up. The carbs are reasonable as is the conversion manifold and I have had great success with Webers on my sports cars (my misspent youth). If you want to see the car go to chevyscrapbook.com, it's the only Pueblo Tan 54' on the site. I took the pix when the car was in Florida twenty years ago, but aside from a new white top and 15" Diamondback Tread Systems 31/4 " radial whitewalls the car looks the same.

Regards,

Chuck

I remember those Webers from when my buddy used to race sport cars in the 60's, he was always tuning them. I knew nothing about them so I was not sure if he was tuning them just because he could (he did like to show off) or because they always needed it.
