Crouching Chevy, Hidden Stop sign.
Sweet car. I know some people may think this is crazy, but if I were given the choice between this Chevy and a brand new Lambo, I would take this Chevy without hesitation. She could use a little fixin' up, but old cars like this have an aspect of character that you just can't find in cars today.
Love the colors in these shots, and the overall character of the car.
It's the little details that count; the 'speed lines' stamped into the fender just behind the headlight, the forward leaning grill which shapes the chrome around the lights, the tapering 'C' pillar.Such a nice car.
Five lugs on one wheel, four on the other. A V-8 conversion in progress perhaps?Agreed with Mike A. and Tony S. about the style and character of these old cars. Will anyone be collecting earth-tone blobmobiles two decades from now? I really don't think so.Lurking just beyond the stop sign- the local constabulary...
I'll take the Lambo, in case anyone's offering....
I second Anonymous. Put me on the list for free Lamborghinis and I'll just be too happy to pass the Chevy II along to someone else.
The mag wheel probably has an adapter plate 4 lug to 5.The conversion plates were common when alloy wheels were rare. 4 lug alloy wheels were even more of an oddity. Usually the adapters were to switch the bolt pattern between makes, A 5 to another 5. The mag industry began using an elongated lug hole and plugs for a universal wheel around the early 70s. J.C. Whitney catalog.These were rear drive.
I'll take the Lambo and sell it and buy this Chevy and pocket the difference. BOOM!
Love the dents, patina and that one Torque Thrust.
