Hot on the heals of Tuckers black Chev purchase, I finally found the coupe I’d been searching for… a 1949 Chevy Coupe Deluxe and its black! No more taking Rudy’s trailer out for long drives and returning home empty. Sunday week ago Rudy, Mark, My dad and myself went deep into Nebraska to look at yet another “rust free” 1949-52 Chevy Coupe, this time it turned out to be true! Last Sunday Rudy and I drove back up to get the car.
Story is that was parked up in 1974 as it didnt have a/c. Its a good solid unmolested car. Completely original. A great starting point. I am not exactly sure what my plans are. I’ll try to get the 216 running and take it from there. True to form I had already bought an intake manifold and carbs to suit a chevy straight six, then found the car to suit. Same as I did with the Sedan Delivery. So I am thinking a 261 six. But things are not set in stone yet?
Heres a couple of pics… yeah I know what your thinking… it is a sexy beast 🙂
