I know it's had SBCs BBCs BBFs & 455 Buicks and Pontiacs 389 400 & 455. he was a true ole school hot rodder ! I grew up living next to him with a small salvage yard on his 4 acres. he built me Pontiac and BBF motors, and built me 12 bolt & 9" rearends. He built a bad ***** 51 chevy 2dr fastback car with a strong performance straight 6 cylinder with 3 2barrle carbs and headers and a m22 4 speed & a narrower 31 spline ford 9" and home made ladder bar suspension. it was body style of pic I attached, but it was flat black with ansen alum slots. he had the 51 and a 64 chevy impala 2dr with a 402 BBC & a 400th. that he raced both of.

the car in the pic is a '50, '51 is more tail fin like, where the lights are
