    Spare Project 1952 Belair

     



    I've been driving past this car for quite a few years, it's at my neighbors house. I went to him to borrow his dump truck because we demoed our garage to build a new one and I had to haul away cement. When I brought the truck back I told him that I checked out the car your going to sell me, he said I might as well. He saved it from a trip to the scrap yard but didn't pay anything for it, he said he'd sell it to me for double of what he paid Not sure when I'll get it home or when I'll get at or or what I'll do with it but I thought I'd share.

    I'll give you double the fuel cost to your house for it. It looks like a great start!

    Hate to tell you Seth. but that's either a 53 or 54, I don't remember how many teeth are in the grill, but the taillights are a dead giveaway. The 54's have a peak at the top.

    I was going off of year he thought it was. I was showing my BIL a pic of it, and he noted right away if it had to be 53 or 54 because of the one piece windshield. I hope it's a 53 so I can keep with my 1953 theme lol

    Nope, '54. The '53 had an oval shaped grille opening that was narrower, though parking lights still spread out the look. Personally I like the '54 much better............to me, the '53 looks like it's about to sneeze. And the tail lights Ken mentioned look classier. These look real good with the proper rake/stance.

    It's much easier to promise someone a "free" ride on the wagon than to urge them to pull it.

    Luck occurs when preparation and opportunity converge.

    I was going to tell you to not let Ryan see it, or he'd offer you 5X what you paid because he's gonna need at least four more old cars, but he stepped up with a REAL offer!!
    A great score! Sometimes all you have to do is ask!

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    Thanks Bob, a 54 is good, it's a little newer than I'm used to lol

    Roger, Ryan's offer is tempting but he'd probably make me deliver it for that price lol.

    We'll see when I get to it, what I'd do. Thoughts went from LS and a 6 speed to a pretty sweet dual carb dual exhaust 235 I found on FB for sale. The 235 sounds a little more cool .
