    Default 1952 Deluxe chevrolet

    Here's one project that has kinda went way farther than intended. I bought this car and used it to propose to my fiance. We ended up naming the car Ellie. It's been in a local magazine before the major transformation.





    This picture was the last picture of it in its original state.

    Ended up finding a good donor car.

    Believe it or not I used about 85% of the cat to build mine.


    The more I cut the more I found. Ended up cutting the while firewall and floor out of the car.

    This is the frame. I sand blasted everything and epoxy primed and painted. Had to make new motor mounts cause of the motor it's a 58 and used a different style mount.

    thats a pretty good restore there. doesn't look like much happened but cutting up that other car was probably pretty hard.

    congrats of the progress. I knew you had been working on it a while.

    Thanks man, yeah used the tail section from the green car and firewall and floor support and the frame. The front suspension and rear came from a 53 automatic car. Automatic cars had more of a highway gear.
