Hi Scott
I will be coming to see you about a fender also, as one of mine is just not worth the cost of fixing.
Still putting together my shopping list before coming across the bridge.

Have my MK 2 mostly finished for now,Just interior to do so at the 59, Have it on the hoist and tearing it down some to see what all it needs,Inner sills for sure, will need front end work but I have a complete wire wheel suspension that I can borrow from. Rack was missing the shaft to the knuckle so changed it today ,Nicer to move it round with the steering intact Wanted to remove the frame extension anyway.Very little tin worm damage cept the sills .Terry

Terry,
Sweet! I always liked the look of those truck styles.

Having to recently do some major brake repairs on my truck, I was reminded of all the room to work they provide (compared to our little cars). You could probably climb in and comfortably wrench on anything in that engine bay compared with digging into the engine bay of an MGA.

Enjoy!
Eric

Drove a Chevrolet 55 big window as my regular driver for almost ten years. It did have a Camarillo clip and a 350/350 drive train though. The 55-56-57 series are great looking trucks.

Unfortunately no.
That is at a neighbor’s house. That’s me in 1960.

Looking great Terry. You’re getting good at this.......
Yes, shoulda kept the truck, but at that time I got a new job with a 70 mile commute. 11 miles to the gallon wasn’t in the budget. I did sell it to a friend who still has it.

Yeah I guess we all sold cars and trucks we wish we still had .My 57 vette went when the first baby arrived, a daughter, and now I have a 20 year old grandson that I wouldnt trade for the vette.Terry
