Ok I hope I don't get reamed on this thread, but I did some research, quite a bit of searching, and honestly didn't find a good answer for my question. I just recently picked up and got running my 55 Poncho Star Chief 4 door. Here she is right now: So I have a pretty solid but blank canvas to start with on this car. My question is what exactly would be considered traditionally modifying this car into a hot rod? Or were 4 doors (& Star Chiefs in general!) just not candidates for hopping up in the first place? Say you had this car your senior year in high school in 1959, what would you do to it? I'm mainly just looking for opinions and advice before I start changing things on the Chief, and wanted to get a good perspective from the guys that knew how it was back in the day. Thanks!
