John’s 1949 chopped chevy coupeBy johnlemoine | February 3rd, 2010 | Category: Visitor Builds | 2 comments
John sent in some update to his 1949 chevrolet coupe. This car was previously featured on the homepage of 50chevy. Looking forward to seeing the updates.
My my name is John and I live in Napa, Ca. This is my 1949 Chevy coupe. The history as far as I know was it was built by two brothers in Salinas Ca. They owned the car until I bought it a few years ago. It’s been chopped 4 inches and had the b pillars leaned. Rounded door frames, custom skirts, head lights and tail lights. It runs a zz4 350 with a B&M 700R4. Must II front and 4 link rear. FBSS air bags and my friend just upgraded my air to a York compressor and all new hydraulic lines. I tubbed the trunk to get it down just a bit lower. I’ve stockpiled almost all the stainless for the car as well as a 64 T-bird Interior for it. Plan is to get that all in sometime this year in prep for paint and body maybe next.
Thanks for looking.
John, thanks for sending in the photos. 50chevy visitors send in your projects or completed rides. Would be nice to put up a new ride everyday.
Thanks for visiting 50chevy.
