    I picked this up last weekend in Pennsyvania. The guy didn’t know who built it or any info on it. IMG_3379.JPG IMG_3397.JPG

    Neato.....! That 235 would be a bit peppier with twin carbs, a little cam and of course dual exhaust.
    I'm a Ford guy, but, that Chevy six is one neat little mill when it is "perked up" a bit Dare to be different !

    I am so stoked to see you picked this car up! It's a GREAT car, lots of good karma. That 6 is bullet proof btw. I'm trying to find a video for you, George Barris reviewed this car when it was at Pgh World of Wheels forever ago. He was talking about rat rods. Before you barf, there was a time when the term "rat rod" was actually cool. The car was just black with a green roof, simpler custom touches, no quad light yet. He signed the dashboard, but I may have removed it. It was a huge signature. I hope the seller gave you the new white tuck-n-roll seat covers and front chrome bumper! The bumper is a 55 or 56 chevy.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    I got the seat covers but not the front bumper. He couldn’t find it. i Message you on here I would like to talk about the car. I’m glad I finally found the person who built it. I don’t mind the term rat rod. I’ve built a couple and I love them. I switched out the steering wheel already with the original one. The one that was in it was rough and weak. I just did a bunch of tuneup stuff for it and drove around the block. And then I ran out of gas. The gas gauge said 1/2 but it was E lol

    Yea, why does the gas gauge show 1/2 of a tank when it is empty. Look like a good family cruiser.
