53 Zwitter (Calvin)

Post by Raggtop on Sat Jan 07, 2012 10:13 pm

Thought i would go ahead and post some pics of my 53 and a bit of Info..
Well to start i purchased this car in Salt Lake City Utah in 2007.. Then Shipped to Ga.
It is a rust free car and has been Sand blasted n primed, Sitting on a 69 Chassis with Airkewld
air ride Installed. I have a lot of plans for this car and with only a few more things left that i want
to do to the Single. it shouldn't be to long...

Started on the split over the weekend... Removed body and started disassembly of pan. All Airkewld Air ride has been removed and getting ready for a new air management system. Just one of those things.
