Just picked up new project

14 hours, one wife, one daughter and a dog named Trigger. Anyway the 2004 Colorado 4WD, 4CYL, Crew Cab worked flawlessly. 62 MPH and only had to downshift on the big hills. Now I can start cleaning out the animals and garbage from the last 20+ years. Fun

Looks to be a 54 Bel Air ?
I tried to buy one years ago, couldn't get the guy to deal.
Good Luck

Good start, looks like it is in fairly good shape, but first looks can be deceiving. Have fun

That's definitely a '53. The large park light units tell that fact as well as the large grille teeth.

It is a 53. It was appearently a runner two years ago. The tag on back say 1969 South Dakota. So I'm doughting it was a runner. Motor is free, just missing a coil. Maybe I will try and fire it. Not going to use the motor anyway. Do some burnouts before teardown. Thanks for looking and the comments.
