you didn't see it at the drags?
hope what you've been hearing is good, Ill get some pics up here tonite
Here's a couple photos of a nice '32 Chev with a straight six. I cruised with them in Canada this past summer. Photos were taken the previous summer.
Wow. All this time I only thought Ford made cars in 1932. Wonders never cease.
Is there any one there in the US that has any photo's or any history or know's anything on this chev could you please send it in to this thread or email me as I have just purchased this chev and will be shipped to Australia. I intend to leave this chev as it was built in the 50's.
Hello way down under. Looks like the Aug 1960 issue of "How to Hop-Up Your Engine" pictured in post #54 here has some detailed information. The also pictured Sep 60 issue of "Custom Rodder" even gave it two pages. Congrats on your purchase, and a tip of the cap to you for keeping it as built.
Thanks for your kind words guys.
good news today, got the ok to ship it to Australia,
I took a couple of pics of that coupe in 08 at Reno I'll see if I can dig em up.
63compact thanks for that hope you do find the photos as i would like to collect as much as i can on this chev
the Chev is being loaded into the container to be shipped to Australia
awesome car, so very glad its going to a home that cares for it and is willing to preserve it as it was/is.
Heres the pics I took in Reno in 08
thank you so much for the photos, i was watching wrecks to riches and i noticed the car in the back ground, it was at this Show.
once again thanks mate
No sweat these were taken at the auctions at Hot August Nights. I'll check and see if the other guys got any pics of it.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank James from Sierra Classic Imports in Reno Nevada for his patience over a 2 month period while I had to get my approval to import the car into Australia also for the company that was chosen to ship the car,
The sale of this car went so smooth and I highly recommand any one in the US or Australia that wants a nice car and friendly service to go to Sierra Classics.
On the count down, one week to go before she docks in Melbourne.
Cool, make sure you post some pics when you get your hands on it.
photos will be posted when it arrives, I also cant wait for the magazine to be delivered as well that came with the car
I actually have pics of that car hung on the garage wall (from the ebay auction) as mine will someday looks simular to that one.
Cool that you got it and when mine is ready i might have to ask for a few pics now and then of what was done...
There was a coupe just like that around here, Olds powered and all. Saw it at a cruise night about 15 years ago. Old hot rodder built it in the late 50's early 60s. I was about 16 at the time and this cruise night didn't necessarily frown on burnouts, so we talked the guy into doing one with his old hot rod. It was pretty friggin impressive!
hi PBRmeASAP i will be happy to send you some photos when ever your ready.
PBRmeASAP according to information i received on the chev, it was last registered in 1962 and placed into storage for 25 years at his place and then another 25 years at his grand mothers or visa versa. overall a very interesting story.
Finally the chev was delivered today to its new home,
A big thanks to James from Seirra Classics in Nevada, Michael from Expert Cargo in California and to Emma from AAW Global in Fremantle, also to Nick who went out of his way to tow the chev home.
Cool! I bet you're as happy as a really happy person.
Had the diff fitted today after getting it narrowed 2 inches to comply for registration.
anyone know who's car this is? I would like to talk to them!
Has anyone out there got any photos of this car from the early 60's.
thanks in advance
