Friends old Willy's that he moved on years ago.
hey thats my car!!!!!!!!!!! i didnt know that was here.well i dont remember i being up here anyway.lol
That is TOO COOL! HRP
Oldmics, now that is awesome!
......I'd have to save both though.
Those are the ultimate in wagons.
Looking good. I bought the two nash's from you a couple of years ago and you were showing me the woodie.Looks like you have made some great progress!
57 Chevy 210 Wagon....283 with a three speed. I have had the car for about 12 years. Plans call for a sixties type street racer or Junior Stocker. I have a 350 and 4 spped for it, but I might build the 283 as I would have in high school (No Money...LOL). Looking for a pair of 15 x 4 Cragar S/S wheels for the front and some 15 x 7 or 8 steelies for the rear.
I know the other one dosnt quite fit here on the HAMB, but it is my daily driver and work truck. 2008 HHR panel...Lowered with Salt Flat type wheels. I like it because of the resembalance to the 48 to 54 Chevy panels.
I gots a nice little (actually BIG!) 59 Sedan Delivery. 350/350 I am presently getting it ready for paint ... going for 1955 chev glacier blue with india ivory lid.
The engine is a fourbolt 300hp from a 70SS ... Notice the oil filler knockout ... I plan on setting the appearance as if it was a 283 with script valve covers, oil filler and stock four barrel air and stickers .... lots of stickers!
This is my paint choice ... photoshopped
I was originally considering competition orange with a white roof ... but dang, it looked like a big Dreamscicle ice cream bar LOL
So for those of us who are new to this game, what year is that willy's? That thing is badass !
It was originally a '40 sedan I believe.
what a great thread, i always dug the 2-door wagons.. particularly the 1955 Pontiac non-safari 2-door Chieftain wagon, the early Ford falcons, and the 1964 Chevelle 2-door wagon... they've all become so rare..
I hope to be on the road in 2012!!
Here is mine, 1953 ,it was a carpenters delivery it still had nails, sawdust and scrapwood in it when I got it. sbc auto (driver)
Here is some pics of a project I recently brought, felt lucky because the body & paint was already done, fenders, doors, half-quarters plus lots of new chrome, (front bumper, emblems, door handles, headlamp & tailight bezels) some new glass w/felts & all the rubbers for the glass & doors already installed. So, most of the what I call "hard work" is done.
Plans are to make a driveable junior stock look-a-like, that can hopefully run in the mid to high 13's.
So far I have got the wheels & tires, removed rear suspension & cleaned & painted, rebuilding the engine. Found two original seats that are at the upholstery shop.
Car did show signs of being gasser, m/p or brk car. Large hole in floor for floor shifter and from inside the rear wheel wells above where the half quarters were installed you can see a little half-circle piece of metal maybe where it was cut out for large tires.
What kind of chassis is your delivery using?
Got this '35 Ford sedan delivery for sale.
