The Jalopy Journal
Swapmeet was great today as well as the racing. I bought a couple small things. Lots of people seemed to be buying.
I saw that car run at Epping NH a few times, always loved it.
I sold those doors years ago. I was told the car was called the "White Rat". The guy I got them from was in Brockton. The car was from Marshfield...
Looks like a great project.
I want this car. I have a 55 265 if you desire.
Looks great, nice job.
Drag them home before the snow melts.
Nice wagon, sorry about your friend. Hope you can enjoy it for him.
I`ve never had a Mallory that worked correctly. I swapped out the last one with a points dist with a Pertronix conversion. Glad you got it up and...
That 55 is bada$$. I would go period correct 60`s on it, sleeper though. Did you find it in Ma. I`d love a 55 150, let alone a factory black one.
I get random people stopping by when I`m working also. When I had my orange 55, it would stop traffic if it was in the driveway. Met a few cool...
Car looks great, awesome work. I saw it about 3-4 yrs ago up here, and it did need some love.
Nice pics, works looks very nice.
That front shackle/spring mount looks pretty scary. If you want to keep the axle, find a better way to do it, and lower it some, F&R.
That happened 5 min from my house. I just drove by there on Friday and saw that rod. The guy always has rods, bikes, Musclecars there, most for...
I cut rotors weekly at my work, all hubless. As stated adapters need to be clean/true, as due the rotor hub surfaces. It does depend on the user,...
Yes it is wrong, and sad that a man`s life was lost enjoying the hobby.
Might be some work, but it looks real solid.
That is how my 55 was set up.
73-91 1 ton`s with the square body are basically the same. That truck could very well be a frame swap, the wheels tuck in nice because it is a...
EDIT; you should look at the rear mount holes. They are not the same as passenger 55/57. trucks used a different rubber mount.
If he`s looking to swap to a 1 ton frame he may be making a tow vehicle.
I`d say you got a good deal.
I`d say go for it, the Impala looks sweet.
Yes the bellhousing should be in the same place.
I had a 65, 283/ glide, great truck. Watch the rust as mentioned. Truck in pics looks nice, how much?
Pics looks good, cool project.
