1950 Chevy Deluxe
By sweetfifty at 2008-11-24
Its got stock suspension front and rear, even though I will be swapping the rear leafs for a link setup soon. In the front I cutdown and reinforced the cups, then I made a plate so that a small firestone bag would fit inside the lower control arm. The clearences are real tight, but it doesnt rub the bags. Its also got Fatman dropped spindles and steering arms.
The rear has a 12 inch notch. I did it big in case I ever wanted to add a rear sway bar or a panhard bar. Tires are 215/75/15 front and rear.
here's my farty-nine
Now that is a good memory! When do ya remember Nadine when she was black? I also realise that i have no pics of the back of the car?
Diggin' the car! And the back ground has to be Fort Davis?

Well Here's mine.....Mr. Haney was you car rare because of How many were made? My 51 business coupe only 1,740 were made..
Like this one?...
Back when I first got my '51 (about 5 years ago), I was a fiend for pics of kustom Chevys...searched all over the net, magazines, etc. I remember that car in black and flat purple too, with a few different sets of caps. I have pics somewhere, but can't seem to find 'em at the moment.
Great work on the rear of the car...who did it?
I did it when i was in college. All the tri 5 guys wanted to kill me for puttin that bumper on the rear end. I have way to many hubcaps, that kills me.
I absolutely love my 54. I want a super old skool cruiser with an updated suspension. SOOOOO one day this:
will be riding on this chassis. I bought both for under 4K woo hoo
I spied this awesome ride at Good Guys Arizona just last week.

Early in this thread there was the debate on 'Hotrod' or 'Custom'.
I personally own the custom versions of the stated year cars and it seems to be the most popular style now. But what 'style' do you think was most popular in the cars' heyday.
