1962 Chevrolet's have always been one of
my favorite cars.
This one looks a lot worse than it really is...
It's mostly here and all the floor braces
look like new.
I'm going to do a complete frame off on
this one, every nut and bolt will be taken
apart, every component will be rebuilt or
replaced.
When it's done, it will be a new car again.

The plan is to build it the way I like them,
60's style. 327, 4 speed, posi and of
course chrome reverse wheels and dual
exhaust with glasspacks.
It's completely apart!

If there was a bolt, nut or clip it's off and in
a bag to be replaced or refinished.

Aluminum radiator with dual cooling fans is

The hoses came today! I built a temporary

resist pouring a little gas in it and hearing it
fire up for a couple of seconds...Also

I NEVER thought I would spend that many
hours sanding the underneath of a car....
The quarters have been primed, blocked
and re-primed.
The body is bolted back on the frame.

I'm going to spend a little time and make it
run so I can start it to pull it in and out of the
garage.
It runs, drives, stops and steers.
The doors,fenders and hood are at the body shop,I'm just
waiting until they have room for the rest of the car.....
