    Hopefully getting a 1956 Chevy 210

     



    I am hopefully getting a 1956 Chevy 210.To me,I have the huge heart for the shoebox Chevys.Checked it out on Sunday,woman got it through a divorce settlement and decided to sell it.She is nice and let me test drive it,drives good.It was her ex husband's,he dropped in a 355 small block in it with a turbo 350 transmission.I was amazed how the paint job looked and the body work was done right.Color is a midnight blue from a 2011 GM color.Interior,could not find a flaw anywhere.Good news is she is going to call me next week and gave her a good offer on it.Only improvement plan is take the turbo 350 out and put in a 700R4 if I get it.

    First thing you will want to do to the old Chevy is to run all-new electrical grounds, motor to frame and frame to body. Grind down to bare metal to connect all three. This can be done with only two ground straps. This will eliminate the most common problem with old iron, stuff that doesn't work right.
