Hey guys, along with the 53 pickup, 29 model a, and the 38 olds projects Ive got going on I picked up a decent 55 for a song. Solid old car, floor pans, mounts, seals, trunk and rockers all seem to be solid. Ive got a lot of work to do to the hood, front and rear fenders, and door skins. I intend on making a true period correct gasser. And this thread will detail the extremely slow progress (note the list of already current projects), but I need to pick your brains on what would be a true period (post roll up window rules) correct gasser motor? It comes with a 1962 327 out of an Impala I believe. Ive seen a lot of gassers at shows but most of them have a blown small block, I want to be different, but I do plan on dragging the shit out of it when I am done so Id like to have a car that will make me nervous to get all in. Here are the pictures where it sits currently. I pick it up next week after my first (and last) wedding. Other then whats pictured, it does come with all the chrome with the exception of the door spears. They were taken off to prevent them from rusting if I had to guess.
