  • 56 Belair

    Well I went and did it ! Got myself a real nice rust free 56 fordor chevy. Nice solid car , all glass is good except windshield . Only problem is the motors shot! My plan is to take the 283 out of my jeep and swap it into the 56. the 283 is low miles ( 9000 ). Also the 350 trans is going in also. should be a real nice car, pics to follow. Wish me luck !!

        Had a '55 myself waaaay back and it is the one vehicle I've had and I wish I still did. Those Tri-5 are timeless- kinda like ZZ Top! LOL!

        Are you going minimal to make it a low dollar driver or do ya have bigger plans? 1930 Chevy truck build link:

            I spent way to much money on my 67 Chevelle ! this car will be running and driving, I don't want to get carried away like I did. I'm leaving the outside alone , the inside is decent ( if you like alligator skin )I might chage the front seats but that's about it.

              Coming along great! Just ordered a second set of headers, this time from Jegs. I ordered a set from summit in July but never got them . Anyone try to call summit, I was on hold twice for 30 min each time. Never got to talk to anyone and the only thing I discovered was the order was canceled . Caars going together nice . Maybe I'll use my demo derby headers Ha Ha Boojoe out
