    i'm retired and decided i needed something to keep me busy.. i picked up this '50 chevy coupe and plan on installing a 350/700R4 .. last night i bought a good running '87 chevy van with the 350/700R4, PS, PB, PW, cruise control for $400.. plans are to strip it out for all the goodies..

    Welcome! That's a nice looking car! I'd have used the $400 for proper wheels and tires and kept the stovebolt. :D

    I agree! I would have kept the six in it. I love these early Chevy's and it looks like you have a beautiful one.

    Yes.. chuck the 6 banger... I did and I can understand why you're doing it. Yes, it's a nice time piece... but for a whole lot more fun and a little bit of effort.. you're going to have something you enjoy a whole lot more. Keep it up.. nice project!

    By the way gsport, you might want to take a minute and do an intro...it can get a little rough around here if you don't.
