Hello guys! Okey it's time for me to start a build-thread. Im going to post up some pics on the progress, if someone is intrested. Im normaly into Volkswagens and have restored many from the pan up since I was 17yrs old. So this will be completly diffrent construction to work with, cool, im very excited. So Im happy from all help and advices I can get from you guys! Many stupid questions to come! Today I have just started my resto on the 49' Chevy pickup. Imported from North Carolina to Sweden in Januari this year. The plan is to first of all get it running and get everything work again (lights, brakes etc) So I can get it saftety inspected and registerd in the Swedish car register. It has no numberplates now. After that is done, im going to start taken it a part to the bare frame, sand blast and mount new parts. Lowering it, whitewall tires etc. Maybe a V8 and a powerglide too. But I will still keep the patina look on the outside and have it nice and shiny on the chassis and know that everything is safe underneith. Here are some picture from today, many more to come next time! The car arriving in Florida from NC. Soon going to the docks/shipping. Picking it up from a loooong trip. North Carolina to Florida, over the sea to Gothenburg in Sweden and then to Karlstad where I live. Cool It's coold! But hopefully all the poison spiders in the truck is frozen to death. Me and the truck,,, Finally some time for the Chevy to get some love after a hard life on a farm in N.C. Some of the springs was broken off. But Im going to put in a complete 3100 frontend I have bought from a friend. So I can lower it and get 6 lug boltpattern. Now is the question what rearend will be best to use, that has 6 lug??? Camaro have 5 lug. Any ideas? Frontend out!
