    Hi my name is Rob ,I bought this car from Hance ,can you let him know it arrived all complete and just as he described it.I tryed to contact Hance but had computer problems and have not been able to contact him since.
    As to the car I have just bought in a t.c.i. front end which I am going to fit shortly,have repaired most of the stainless trim ,doing a peice a week .Iam a panelbeater working for myself so have been trying to find a bit of time to work on it amongst other jobs .My mate noticed your post so was stoked to see the car and would be good to keep in touch and tell Hance the chevs in good hands .Will send some photos as soon as I fit in front end.Rob

    yeah planning on keeping 6 in it ,Iam going to change rear suspension ,just figuring out what will work best ,2link trailing arm or 4link like gambinos,getting stuff from states to here is expensive .Let me know what you think .Good talking to you.Rob

    Yeah, I never liked the way that rear suspension was set up.. My '54 is 4 linked with parts I got from thorbros.com back when they were suicidedoors.com, and the Gambino 4link is pretty popular too.. The '55 rear end in that car is all rebuilt with no miles on it.. But I would 'Link it.. The front end is the same as my car which has been on the road for years now like that.. I think a few guys on here have bagged their cars the same way. It needs some body work, but thats a good car you got yourself!!
