History of this Vehicle
This is an old hot rod. My brother bought this car in 1978. At that time it had a 265 Chevy and 3spd o/d. The car had been built in the late 50’s or early 60’s. The original floor pans had been cut out to channel the body over the frame by about 3”. A piece of galvanized sheet metal was then screwed to the existing side rails for a floor. Kind of scary. Any bump or change in throttle the car went where it wanted. I disassembled the car in 1985 it would take till 2005 before I pulled the pieces out of the barn and started to rebuild everything. I started with a new boxed frame, changed the engine, trans, and rear end, added 4 bar front and rear and started getting the original body back in shape. I made a new 1” square tubing frame work for the body to set on plus added metal bracing from the floor to the top of the body where the old wood used to be. Left the body channeled 3”
Painted it in a gunship grey primer and proceded to drive it.
