What stage is this in?

Completed Project

When did you purchase it and for how much?

2016 – £8500

Why did you choose this vehicle?

I wanted a project that would turn heads, so figured a 1957 Chevy would do just that over here in the UK

What sort of condition was it in when you started the project, what was wrong with it, etc.

When I purchased the truck it was running but needed a lot of TLC.

The interior was awful, the engine bay was dirty, the carburetor leaked fuel, the rear end leaked oil, the brakes and suspension needed replacing and a bit of body work was required before it was to be painted.

What, specifically have you done, or had done to it?

I have rebuilt the truck from the ground up.

I rebuilt the engine

It got a full custom stainless steel exhaust

Gave it some new wiring

It got new glass and a new interior

Put on new breaks and suspension

It got new accessories, new custom wood bed (Amertican Tulipwood with 3 coats of clear varnish)

I painted the chassis, gave it some new chrome work and body work, then fully painted it the original Indian Turquoise

Can you list any and all parts that you have put in?

The original 235 engine has been upgraded with a mild cam, new Fenton headers and intake and new twin carb kit (32/36 DGEV) from Langdon Stovebolt.

Front leaf springs are custom made, rear are off the shelf 3″ drop springs.

The interior is a fully custom interior including full carpet with edged floor mats, door cards, head lining, sun visor and original bench seat.

New original style gauges along with a complete new wiring loom.

New lights, windows, trim, mirrors, chrome work, rebuilt brakes, custom stainless steel exhaust, new original style side step plates.

Where have you purchased your parts?

Farm Fresh Garage (UK)

Valley Gas Speed Shop (UK)

Langdon Stovebolt (US)

Classic Industries (US)

Classic Parts (US)

What about you?

I was 23 when I purchased this project. It is my first project vehicle, and took me 3 years of hard work to get to completion.

I am an Aeronautical Design Engineer by trade so I do not have any qualifications or working experience in the automotive industry.

Any stories regarding this project?

Since completion I have taken the truck to several shows and received a trophy for “Best Paint” at one of the shows, which helped keep the interest alive.

While at shows I am not too precious with my truck and allow adults and children to sit inside and have pictures taken.

Any garages, parts stores, fabrication shops, etc you want to call out specifically?:

I would like to show huge appreciation to SRA Bodywork (UK) for the excellent customer service, bodywork and paintwork. Shaun has achieved a fantastic level of depth and quality to the paint.

My name is Dennis. First, let me just say, I am a Christian, a husband, a father to 1 beautiful step-daughter and 3 strapping young boys and a step-grandfather (She calls me “Grumpy”) to a gorgeous step-granddaughter. These will always be my priorities, no matter what my interests are. That said, I strive to keep and maintain a family friendly atmosphere, so my boys and their friends can enjoy the site as much as I do. (Granddaughter isn’t old enough and daughter has other interests.)
