A FREE forum with -member photo gallery- for the vintage Chevy and GM builders.

PLEASE Sign Up & Post in the Classified Section  - If you don’t want to talk No Problem  - But Please - List those Parts for Sale or Parts Needed!

As you all know locating any parts for these early Chevy's is tough, the goal of this forum is to bring the restorers, lowriders, street & rat rodders together. 

There are plenty of forums out there and it's a pain trying to locate Chevy/GM parts tucked in all of those Ford, Dodge, Plymouth etc ads. Some forums don't like mixing restored cars with custom cars, we'll focus on the early BOWTIE's....but mix it up some. To be clear we love all vintage vehicles regardless of make..it's just tough locating the Govt Motors stuff!

To assist in your projects advertising is encouraged & will be FREE for both PRIVATE and COMMERCIAL sellers. 
Don't be a Bowtie Parts Hoarder!


Unlike many other forums you are encouraged to mention other websites and/or forums in your posts or signatures. We even have a list of other forums at the bottom of the page….this is a reference site.

Registration is open......SUGGESTIONS FOR FORMAT ARE WELCOME -and- PLEASE GET THE WORD OUT! ........... It's OK to just sign up ONLY to buy/sell parts!

This is my first time on this site so please excuse any questions that seem less informed.  I have a friend of our family who wants me to sell 3 cars for him, he's about 80 and not net savvy.  He has a 55 Hudson Hornet Coupe and a 55 Hudson Hornet Hollywood and a 33 Chevrolet coupe.  All 3 cars have been in a barn for over 20 years and this week I'm supposed to help him move, clean and start the selling process.  I'm not interested in the 2 Hudsons but I'd like to work a deal that involves me buying the 33 chevy.

The last time I saw the 33 it was restored to original and drivable.  Very nice vehicle.  But that's been a long time ago so I'm not sure what to expect.  I'd like to see it converted to a street rod with a small block chevy, since the engine is probably locked up anyway.  What advice can you guys give me regarding what to look for?  What to avoid?  What is a good frame for the conversion to street rod?  etc, etc.  Please feel free to share as many details or links as possible.

Hopefully I can get some pictures tomorrow or Tuesday.
Thanks,
Ron

I've been fitting up my fenders an running boards this past week and set the front fenders in place today. Thought I would test fit my front splash apron { fiberglass} the rack an pinion is interfering with the fit, I also used a mustang II front end. My question is if I lower the rack to clear the apron how much can I drop it so that it doesn't change the geometry so much that I create a bump steer problem? I think that's the right term.

I have had a lot of cars over the years  .55-57 Chevy's  4 barrels to fuel injections . Even had a 57 sedan delivery NHRA record holder. Had 69 ram air Oldsmobile, 69 Z-28 .93 Z-28 (race car) and a Pontiac G8. But in all those years and all those car none put a smile on my face like the my little black primered 32 Coupe does everytime I walk in to the garage . A couple shows I have been to, I have been letting parents take pictures of their kid in the coupe .You would think it was with Santa , they line up. Thanks for reading. just rambling on a Sunday morning.

Today I went to the Shaker Village Show with my daughter.  It's in Canterbury NH about 30 miles north of my house.  It's a museum that has 25 old buildings from the Canterbury Shakers www.shakers.org  The show was put on by the White Mountain Model A Club so I was surrounded by a sea of old Fords.  I proudly wore my Rust Bowtie t-shirt!  Everyone was great and I'll mark it on my calendar for next year.  My daughter and I had a great time checking out the cars and the exhibits in the old buildings.  Here are some pics of the cars.
