The Jalopy Journal
This is my first post since the new format. Not complaining, just trying to see if I can learn it...yeah, I'm old and just learning computers.
I've been away from Fords for a while, so my memory is a little fuzzy, but I think maybe your valve covers should be Ford Corporate Blue...not gold.
I like SSimple. :)
Hubbard's or Impala Bob's. They both have web sites.
Is this the event at The Chicken Oil Company?
Welcome. Looks like a good start.
What would you have to do to get a title? That's something to consider also. I had one just like it when I was a kid...same color even. I drove...
Is it an automatic transmission? Is the transmission fluid O.K.?
The pictures make it appear to be a very nice start to a hotrod. Of course, you know the rest...frame, V8, etc. :)
I sent you a PM with some local shop information.
Great link Kevin. Thank's a lot!
Go to the Impala site ([URL="http://www.impalassforum.com"] and ask this same question. We have several members there. Tell them I sent you....

Maybe you're not as crazy as some would infer. :) Actually, I was offered this car, but declined...just don't like the '57, for $30,000. It is...
Where are you located? I might can hook you up with a '57 convertible that looks factory new but still needs an engine and transmission. I'm in...
Soooooo, I'm guessing it's a slow day at work today. :)
Some of the guys here in W. Texas believe that Shell gasoline is formulated differently and is better...true???
Dibs on the Z71! :)
I'm in! Tell us more.
Well, so much for my plan to drop in on my friend Don later this summer when the fish start biting. :)
Welcome from San Angelo. We also have a couple of other members from Brownwood...they'll probably be along later.
How often are you going to drive it? If you drive it a lot, then fuel mileage becomes more important.....but that 390 would sure be cool.
It's barely a drive for you but, Ron's Coachworks in San Angelo is really good...and has done several 32's. He's a hotrodder himself and is easy...
