Lou from Arkansas, Sent in these photos of his 1949 chevrolet coupe 2-door.
Much of the alterations was documented with pic’s. The hard work was done during the winter months Sep 07 – May 08.
My son and I removed everything from the front windshield forward, leaving only the frame rails.
We installed a TCI front suspension, power rack, disc, etc.
Bought 330 hp crate motor; moved master cyl to firewall; alum radiator, Ididit tilt chrome column, dolphin gauges in orig cluster; 85 Buick 200-4R; lokar shifter; bucket seats; complete new interior; replumbed gas and brake lines; 55 chevy rear with 3:36 gears.
Its “on the road” but needs exterior paint and some chrome work.
