Bacca's 1930 Chevy Rod

Post by Bacca » Sun Mar 22, 2009 11:15 pm

I picked this up yesterday (pick up pic below) for $12200 with RWC & drove it the 400 or so k's from Gippsland through Melbourne to home, had a great time.
Its a 1930 Chevy
Matches the wife's Morrie
Picked up the '59 DeSoto hubcaps on the way through Melbourne but they wont go on the front wheels :(
It has 4 cylinder 2Lt Peugot 504 running gear at present but I just got a 253 V8 on ebay so over winter.......
I think I will have someone else do the running gear swap & any spare time I get will get into getting my chop done
Shop opens next weekend so have got back a lot of my shed space

OK so we're drooling.
Should be very nice with 253. Gas ?
Oh and that shed is WAY too empty. Needs more JUNQUE.
It's not about the Bling /:~)>

Is it all steel for that money? If so then it's a NICE car! :shock: Gotta be honest though I'd be throwing the french motor in the bin, then make sure it doesn't come back out again by putting the 253 on top of it. Then go get a hopped up blue flame motor and drop that it :twisted:

Looks liek the I-beams gone too, thats a shame :(
