    After awhile of looking and finding the right car, I picked up my new (and first) baby. 1950 Chevy. Can't wait to tear into this build![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    What are you going to use for an engine?
     
  4. Looks like someone sprinkled a little mild custom on that one already. Enjoy.

    For right now I have a 350 and a 5 speed to drop in it. I'm gonna build something different eventually. I just wanna get it on the road for right now.

  7. Looks good. Really like those 50's Chevys.
    350 with 5 speed is just what it needs. Keep us posted................

    Nice specimen. Good luck with the build. The 5 speed will be nice in that one.

    Looks good! I'm building a 50 Styleline myself. They're great cars...

    Well, after seeing the dates when I posted this makes me sad hahaha. Life got in the way and the car sat on the back burner. Finally making the push this winter to have her driving by spring. Last night I finished up the driver side front lowering kit. Lowered 2 1/2 inches.

    Also have to re do my transmission mount because I sold the 5 speed for a 4 speed.

    Sorry I have not updated in a long time. I got a couple pics last night and I’ll get more this week and keep everyone updated. IMG_1007.JPG
