I don’t have much experience and will have many many questions. I have a 1953 Chevy 210 that the previous owner had since 1986. It has a 235, a three speed on the floor, and a power glide rear.

    The car runs, drives, and stops but there is plenty of sorting out to do. Mostly suspension, brakes, and inner patch panels, lots of inner patch panels.

    The plan is to drive it in the summer and do the bodywork in the winter.

    Congratulations on your purchase and welcome to the HAMB! You'll find lots of custom freaks, like me.

    And since we're fans of traditional builds, here. I would love to see that pinstriping go bye-bye. It definitely screams "eighties"!

    Hi & welcome. Whats really nice about your is it is definitely customized in the style they were doing it in the late 50's - 60s. The engine in my avitar photo is a 1957 235 in my 46 chevy coupe. There is nothing wrong with having a 235 engine if it is in good shape. It will cruise as good as a V8.Or you could drop in a crate engine V8 and be different JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. I chose to be really different and stay with the inline six. For aftermarket repair parts look at both www.filling station.com and www.chevsofthe40.com. Both have patch panels for your car as well as about anything else. I have bought a bunch from both & they both have a huge paper catalog as well as the website. They do not carry much hot rod items but if you want that let us know and we can list the suppliers for the hop up stuff. Jimmie

    Welcome from Indiana! I have owned and driven several 3 on the floor vehicles and enjoyed them all. Car looks good from the pics. Good luck with the project and keep it on the road as much as possible! Regards, Randy
