A couple of weeks back I found a 1953 Chevy coupe on our local auction site. It was located at the opposite end of the country, so I organised for an old rodding mate, Billy, from 30 years ago, to take a drive and check it out for me. Billy and one of his mates checked it over and took a bunch of pictures and video clips and talked to me whilst doing so. After a good old fashioned poke around over the phone, I asked Billy the only important question..... "Billy, would you buy it?" he didn't even hesitate, "hell yes!". That was all I needed to hear! I had a look at all the pictures and videos he sent....... I then got on the phone with the seller and we worked out a deal that worked well for us both....... And just like that, the family has grown again. The car is unfortunately still with the seller as the transporter, along with a lot of other people are experiencing difficulties with the staffing due to covid issues. In order to get the car to me it has to be trucked to the interisland ferry then back on a truck again. At best a full 2 day drive! Any way.... The car has had quite a bit done already. Nova rear end, heidts front end (I know, I know!), crate 350/350 combo. A new panel behind/below the trunk lid. No interior to speak of. Bare seat frames, front and rear (150 coupes had no rear seat). New floor above the chassis C notch in the rear. 20" steel rims and tyres. I have been buying a couple of used couches/sofa/chairs to use the aged leather for the upholstery in the car. So follow along with this latest adventure!
