53 Belvedere with a Slant Six

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by rustyfords, Mar 22, 2012.

  1. My dad's about to start a 53 Belvedere hardtop project with a hopped up slant six in it.

    He's a grouchy old codger who doesn't do computers so I'll be posting photos as he goes along.

    He's done all the "normal" hotrods over the years....roadsters, deuces, 40 Fords, etc. and says he wants to do something oddball. I think this fits the bill.

    If it's a 4 door, it isn't a's a Cranbrook 4 door, just to quibble over details!:D.

    From '51 thru '54 Belvederes are 2 door hardtops. The work to put in a slant six is the same though.........carry on!
