1954 Chevrolet Convertible

 

     Iíve had the car for almost three years. I bought it after visiting a friend in Canada and had it transported. It had been garaged there for 18 years but was originally a California car for about 29 years. Car had not run in years. When I purchased it the color was yellow with Bermuda green trim. Paint was cracked and faded. Top was rotten. The body was straight and the original interior was excellent. All trim was on the car and all chrome and glass looked good. The original radio even works.

   

     Rebuilt the carburetor, new solenoid, new fuel pump with bowl, placed a disposable gas filter under car, tuned and timed, replaced main seals and gaskets, rebuilt master cylinder for brakes, cleaned tank and replaced gas lines, replaced battery, bought 5 Coker wide white wall tires of original size and style, replaced truck cardboard and floor rubber.

     Had car stripped of all paint and found two welded patches under rear gravel guards (one on each side). No other rust issues. Had it painted a Polaris White with Bermuda Green trim. Had new Bermuda green top put on.

     All mechanicals are stock. The engine is a 235 with power glide and power steering. Car cruises great at 60-65 MPH. The headlights dim automatically as the autotronic eye still works. The two spot lights work and turn heads on night cruises. This will be its first year to be seen at car shows since it has been restored.
