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

Gear Box Spare Parts

Back in June, Grant (Monty the 28 Chev) and I picked up an engine and other spare parts as a package lot.

Finally got around to striping the 2 gear boxes, one a 26 and the other a 28. Pleased to say I will be able to make one good box from the 2. One had a lot of rust in the bottom, taking out the idler cluster and the main cluster, the other box almost perfect, would only require new bearings and to be thorough a new input shaft.
