My 53... still running 235 & Power Glide... stock as a brick... but I love it
Some crappy photos of my ´54, covered in road dust and bird sh*t during our annual summer trip to the northern Sweden.
1954, 261 w/ Power Glide redone and a HEI with a 12 volt system conversion. The usual oprions for the high end '54 model.
A special thank you, to all of you custom builders ,who
do not destroy the finished lines of your build by leaving
big gaping holes in the rear quarters where the skirts
Maybe we can drop the custom defination for all these
unfinished looking cars and call them street customs or something that defines them from the flowing beauties we are accustomed to.
It literly blows my mind that someone would completely finish a car,
up to and including a beautiful chop etc. then leave it unfinished looking by destroying the total lines of the bottom of the car.
Exactly what I was looking for. I just bought a 53 Today!

I took these pics at lead east NJ in 07 or 08, I havnt seen the moonglow since then
I just picked up a '54 wagon. It has a 350/350 turbo setup with a mustang II under the front. My plans are to update the mustang II to power steering and adding power brakes. I'd like to put it on air at some point too. I also want to ditch the chrome kit under the hood. Hope you like!

Here are my two chevies.
The four of us Krazy Kory, Art, Rowdy Randy,Pee Wee Darall built my 53 in 62 days alot of fun to do. can see build on Krazy Kroy Kustom.
My first car was a 53 Hardtop. Paid 45 bucks for the thing then drove it home with no brakes. Could only afford to primer the thing but went to Mexico for some Diamond tuck upholstery. Front seat was out of a 59 El Camino, laid back for the proper cruising stance. Even got a trophy for N stock automatic at the old Irwindale dragstrip. ( Only car in the class LOL). But not a picture of it exist today, only the memories and there were quite a few. Those hardtop lines are classic.....
