Default Not a 4x4

Just picked up this 52' four door chevy last night and figured I might as well share some pics along the way. Planning on linking and bagging the rear, and will most likely make it a 2 door and chop it. I will be tearing into it tonight.

i was told that the bottom half of a bronco tailgate makes a perfect rollpan for these. however, most bronco tailgates are rusted out.

x2 on the "don't make it a two door"

Slam it and make it a bare bones driver before getting into the top chop, enjoy it a little before jumping into the big projects.

Check out theoriginalpoorboys.com for questions or parts. My uncles car club, forrest. He had a nice 54 but I didn't see any pics on there, just his 55. They had a top chop thread on there at one time, not sure if it still is
