    Here's my 48 chevy that I have been working on for a while now. Trying to keep to the earlier custom style. So far its been nosed, decked, shaved handles, frenched headlights, and has a 1950 Cadillac 331 drivetrain. 20180616_134643.jpg Screenshot_20180703-192303_Gallery.jpg

    Really like the look of this! I struck a deal on a 52 this week, and this is close to how I pictured mine ending up in my head. How much did you chop it?

    Sorry for the very late answer. Its chopped 3 in the front and 4 in the rear. Any news on your 52?

    Just purchased this 48 as the new caretaker, will finish interior and small details still to go but think it might be welcome here.

    Always my favorite thread too bad there’s not more being built, everything is too low! Here’s a 46 pontiac I’m working on but there’s really nothing new to it other than electrical and brakes. 6361A687-14AF-452A-9C82-537F5C47B81D.jpeg
