The purpose of this Blog

This blog is to detail my 43 years (1973 - 2016) with a 1928 Chevrolet tourer, affectionately called "The Red Chev".

The acquisition, restoration, improvements and my experiences over the years are covered in as much detail as I can remember.

Some of the later postings include car club outings and other vintage car items that I hope will be of interest to people.

If you have the time, scroll back to where it all began in 1973 and follow the journey so far.

Thanks for dropping by.

Regards Ray Dean

1932 Chev Coup in need of a lot of love and care

Already partially butchered by a previous rodder, this once beautiful example of a 32 could still be salvaged and returned to ite further glory.

From Ebay

This is a rare 1932 Chevy coupe...its also a rumbleseat car. This car looks to have been resurrected in the 60s with a Y block Ford, automatic trans and a Ford rearend. Stock front end and has all its original friction shocks still hooked up. Has really cool frenched '65 Impala taillights sunken into each fender...the work is in lead. Body is VERY straight...fenders are excellent...you wont be searching for a bunch of parts.

I have the hood sides with the doors and other than that is pretty complete except for some interior window trim. Will need a couple of patch panels and work on the bottom of the trunk lid and the panel below the trunk lid...but very dry and rust free otherwise. Rolls and steers...car looks rougher than it is because of some old surface rust and old primer...body is VERY good .....hasnt run in decades...will be sold with a bill of sale..will need wood work of course.
