Meanwhile, I had a peek yesterday at a '55 Chevy 2-door for sale
locally. It was an unfinished drag car project that was sitting around
in a shed for about 10 years. New front frame clip with Mustang II
steering, discs, lift-off metal front end, narrowed and beefed 12-bolt,
6-point cage, no rust, no interior parts. Well worth the 3 grand price,
but lots of metal work and fabrication needed to make it a street car.
I'd prefer one still in stockish shape. I passed on it and he sold it
this morning for 4 grand.
