1934 Ford Coupe, 1957 Chevy Bel Air

Here is a picture of our beloved classic cars, which includes a 1934 Ford 5-window coupe with rumble seat and a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air 2-door hardtop. Our son and daughter have both used the 1934 Ford 5-window coupe in their weddings. In each of their weddings they rode in the rumble seat from the church after the wedding.

The 1934 Ford has a three two barrel setup on a bored and stroked 42 flathead engine. While our 1957 Chevrolet has a warmed over V8 with a 350 turbo transmission, it’s restoration was a full frame-off custom theme.

We always enjoy getting them out on nice days and cruising, but sharing them with our children on their special days is a real bonus.

    That is an awesome '34 Ford 5 window coupe w/a rumble seat. My first car in high school was a white '57 Chevy 2 door hardtop a lot like the one you have here. Both cars bring good memories of great cars of the past. Congratulations on bringing them both alive and keep up the good work.

    Great classics. I too am in central Illinois and am currently looking for a 66 or 67 El Camino. Any leads would be greatly appreciated. Enjoy those beautiful rides Tom.

    Tom I don't consider the cars to be butchered but rather saved from the crusher and used as fine examples of automotive history for generations to enjoy be it stock or modified. USA freedom of choice !

    More automotive history butchered. What a shame.
