57 Belair.

Here's a little side project I'm doing. Put it up for sale but if I don't get good coin there'll be a small supercharger in it's future. Love the car, just stretched myself a tad thin with the 308 HQ I just finished. If it doesnt sell for what I want I'll eat 2 min noodles and just stare at it

Looks cool Ken, now you will be able to use all that knowledge you gained from working on your 57 wagon.

It has the factory 283 and a 4 speed. Man I didn’t know a v8 could sound so lame lol. It has a Camaro front power steer/ disc brakes. The only down side is the steering box is around 10mm away from the standard Chev ram horns so extractors might not be possible.

Nice one Ken. Like your variety, eh! . Can't blame you - What's not to dig about these classic lines. The ultimate 50's cruiser

Yeah thanks guys it is pretty cool. If it sells I think I’m going mopar next. Would love a 68 coronet or similar. Think I’m setting a new record for the least amount of time ownership on this one lol. Funny thing is I’ve got a one owner grandad spec HQ that I converted to V8 and I love it. Faded paint and all
