1950 Chevrolet Sedan

Here is my latest classic car, it’s a 1950 Chevrolet 4-door sedan. It was sold to me as an unrestored original last year but there is evidence of more than a few rust repairs over the years. They are all welded in though and should be alright – I hope.

The original 6 cylinder was real tired and knocking when we pulled it. A new drivetrain has been fitted. It’s a 350 Chevy with a 700R4. Suspension is a Mustang II power Rack & Pinion with power disk brakes all around. Rear is a 3.27:1 positraction unit.

While I am optimistic to get her back on the road this year, maybe it won’t be finished this season, but will be ready for the next – God willin’.

    I also bought a car of my dreams, a 1949 Fleetline with a 350 and a 700R4 trannie. I will be working on this car as we grow older together. This car was on the Chevrolet showroom floor when I was born. At least one of us is getting better. Love seeing your ’50 project. Lee

    That will make a nice sleeper if you keep it looking stock outside! But by all means it’s yours, enjoy it no matter how you do it! Great to see them keep running modified or stock!

    Why oh why would you take an original car and ruin it by putting a small block in it?? There are fewer and fewer original cars left. If you want to put in a small block there are plenty of cars out there that are already altered from original. You are destroying cars, not restoring them, and ruining what is left of this hobby.

    My Dad had a 1950 Chevrolet. It was his first car and remember it back in the 50’s. Boy that picture brings back memories. It was a dark maroon colour.
