The new build. 1954 Chevy Wagon. Thoughts ?
Get busy....that will be cool as hell!
Do I see a blower under the hood? HRP
Building a wagon like this you may get some great ideas for Ken, he has been a cChevy wagon guy ever since I have know him. HRP
Drive it! Love the blower under the hood; now that's sleeper!
Seems like I saw this on a thread awhile back.....hmmm....I remember that blower.....
Find some headlight rings and clear the whole car............DONE!
I'd 'dirty up' and take the shine off everything under the hood. Dull and rusty steel rims, mis-matched black walls, maybe some dented hubcaps. I prefer the 'neglected and abandoned' look in my sleepers.
Yes I did post a quick one as I was building. I forgot I made one. All pics will be here now
Yes you do. That is indeed a blower.
Updated pictures since I’ve been driving it. Also included a picture of my wagon with my 1934 ford
That will surprise the shit out some wannabe racer kids in their thump boxes
Vintage roof rack... Done!
An for the Love of God.... Don't clear it!
Anyone that clears rust, Would clear there fingernails
Your car looks cross eyed with no head light trim rings.
Only bad thing I can say.
I would like to take your car out on a date and take advantage of it on a lonely stretch of highway
That thing looks like a blast !!!
I have been thinking of a roof rack. It will probably happen. Also, I am not going to clear it. I didn’t clear the 34 either
I know. I think I’ve got a guy who has some. Will find out in 2 weeks. Crossing my fingers. I didn’t want to buy new. And it is wicked on the highway. I got 2.83 gears in the rear end. It gets on average 26 mpg, and when you want to go, it goes. Awesome comment by the way. Hilarious . And thanks for the feed back, much appreciated
Sleepers are so much fun! Had an OT s10 with a 350/350 and 9 in. Back before it got common, what fun.
I had lowering blocks like that on a 40 chevy with some horsepower and the pinion hit the floor. I had to add upper torque arms. I love the car!!
I'm not a fan of patina, but I don't think I would paint that car. Like someone else said; I would find some headlight rings, and maybe a Chevy emblem for the hood. Cool car!
Paint it. Put some wide whites on it, THEN surprise the boy racers.
Man I would use the word ugly but can’t I am building a wagon and mine is butt ugly 62 Studebaker lark with a non traditional 2 hairdryer motor and a6 speed I want to drive it to the salt flats from Texas at least you can make your look good
I like it
Same thing; put together a long bed S10 with fiberglass topper, steel wheels and caps. Daily driver, my wife used to like to drive it just for the fun of surprising the other drivers.
