    My 51 coupe found in a field in 1980, was a C/Gas car at one time.

    Here's my newly acquired '53 Bel Air Sport Coupe... Powerglide. 0310171607.jpg 0310171608.jpg 0310171610.jpg 0310171831.jpg
    Pretty much original, except for '54 235 and split exhaust from homebuilt split/grafted exhaust manifold and old lacquer repaint, guessing from the '60's.

    Before I just used an aftermarket pedal with a lokar cable.
    I'm switching to 3x2, but will probably use the same.

    I used the Lokar "eliminater' set up which works nice because it does not go through firewall. Easy install.

    new to the HAMB so hello all. Here is the ‘52 I just picked up. All original, 235 w/ powerglide and 74,000 on it. Plans are to toss in drop spindles, 3” blocks out back, split manifold w/ dual exhaust, dual carb set up and some wide whites. Be racking up miles on the back roads of Minnesota

    Tell us about that power steering box setup, and the headers you're using. Those seem to be what a lot of guys have questions about. Should have kept my 51 Bus Coupe! I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

    Some excellent photos and nice coverage of our '54 Bel Air post sedan by Tyler,
    @ FIRST ANNUAL PRAIRIE NIGHTS COVERAGE 2017. The shots were taken in the early morning sun, giving the color a different cast, it's normally a GM light blue... dyno dave

  28. Just now ran across this thread, I have owned several over the years from '49 thru '54's. Also Pontiac's and Oldsmobile's of those years, always have liked the body lines. I don't have any '49 thru '54 Chevy's right now but I do have a '51 Olds 88. Here are some off my screen saver... 2015_roadster_show_hotrod_photos_a-1436544941l8cp4.jpg 10848048_552000704936962_8321520298611238012_n.jpg 10868143_552297518240614_8248029336513675803_n.jpg 51917049_10158205819914745_3181000113975721984_o.jpg 54515170_2374385809462774_6306616921022267392_o.jpg
     
  29. My high school (class of '80) car; a '53 Bel Air hardtop.
    It was lowered a bit, nosed & decked and had seven grille teeth. :cool:
    I paid for it (as well as tires, paint, chrome & upholstery) by pumping diesel fuel after school at a truck stop for $2.35/hour.:rolleyes:
