Nice.. I'v been thinking I should take my '51 out and get it good enough to put on the road. I actually could use it as a back up vehicle/ cruiser..

BTW, if your getting rid of the curb feelers. don't wreck them. there worth about $100 each

Great find. Love the 49,50 Chevy coupes. You sure have the base for any options you want to pursue. Looking forward to watching the build.

Nice car, I love that era, Chev's and Oldsmobile's. I would find a bigger 6, split the manifolds, multi carbs, windshield visor, skirts, suicide knob, all the old 60's stuff. Too cool, I know you'll come up with a good looking car.

Thanks guy's.... Found a few things hiding under the paint that May need a little bit of my help.. Nothing bad at all so far... Great score indeed...

This is what I have plan for it... Something a long these lines... I won't be chopping it right now... But it will be in the build a little later...

Cool

Hey Randy, Cool find, hope you got a good deal on it. That is exactly the vehicle thats on my next build list. I can't seem to ever get the current projects finished, yet always have ideas for future builds.

Always wanted a '55, but prices have gotten stupid on a decent roller. This is what led me to looking at '49-'54's. I am sooo jealous you found a nice one local. You got all the luck. Is the drivetrain still stock? If possible, could you do some drivetrain photos so I can see what it takes to do a big block/t400 conversion. olnolan
