My 51 coupe project and the 50 fleetline my buddies doing for his boss
so this is my 54, I put 53front fenders on it because at the time I felt that 53 grille surrounds looked better for kustoms, but now, eh...
has a MII from fat mans under it, chromed stock steering column and shifter. still 3 on the tree but with a 3spd/overdrive unit from a 58 biscayne.
the ol 235 has been worked over pretty good, head is milled .125, bored .60 over howard rough idle cam in it, block machined to a full flow remote oil system.
then she was painted HOK zenith gold with pagan kandy on top, then was pinstriped and finished of with a polished offy 2 pot with 2 carter yf's and a set of fenton headers.
s-10 4x4 rear with a 57 chevy drive shaft. rear was c-notched 8 inches and tunnel was raised accordingly.
she is not perfect but she's mine
and yes I know the tail pipes are crooked as shit. I ran out of time and from the rear end back are only temp...
Here's mine, not the best picture but that's what it looks like around here in January.....
I've got the mechanical work 99% done (235, 0.60 over domed pistons, 3x1 carbs, '3/4 cam' Isky grind, Fentons, Vertex Mag), now comes the interior and paint.
I've noticed a lot of these cars are the 'Sport Coupe/Business Coupe' with the small back window, mine included. It's funny, but back in the '50s & '60s I can't recall ever seeing one, all of the 2 doors were sedans, hardtops or converts.
I love that drawing!
it has completely reinspired me to get back on my car again!
the lines on that chop are perfect!!!
Now if we could just get a hood on your car we'd be in business!!!
Shit give's me the chills all great cars!!! Dig the goat too.
Hey everyone, I havent seen one UTE in here,
I know they are out there,
I am building one at the moment
shit I would be happy with just a grille
Heres my 54
Just had a thread on my 54 build but heres a few of to add to this long runnin thread!
A few I've shot for R&C
Two town 53 is sick! I have not seen that car..
Here is my old one. If your wondering about the picture it is tone mapped.
It lives in Wisconsin now.
this is funny I just posted a thread asking for more pics or info on this 2 tone 53...
Here's my '51 at the Atlanta World of Wheels 2010. This has been one of the funnest rides I've ever owned.
more hots of mine before the caddy tail lights...
Definitely 3 amazing Chevies!!
A little of that Drag-N-Shop vibe that I love so much.

It's looking good Jeff!! What hub caps are you running?
Looks great....the Pontiac trim is a nice touch.

They are 52 Pontiac on a chrome liped rim. It almost makes them look like a 16"
