Classic Chevy Club
I bought my first ’57 Chevy Wagon in 1968 for $100. It was a 283
cu in power glide 210 4-door.
Now, 31 years later the car has had 2 engines, 3 paint jobs and 2 interiors. The car was last done in 2001. I rebuilt the 235 cu in six with a ¾ race cam, a Holley 390 CFM carburetor on a Clifford manifold with Fenton Headers and a four speed transmission. I also added a new custom C.A.R.S 210 Delray interior, disc brakes and dropped spindles with rear 3 inch drop blocks. I wanted to be different with a six instead of a V-8 like 95% of all the other Tri-Fives.
The car has been very reliable and has been to many CCI Conventions on the East Coast which I have been a member since 1979. Joyce and I are also members of NSRA and Inliners International.
When we were in NJ we were members of the Garden State Classics and then the Jersey Cruisin’ Classics before moving to Florida in 1999.
