Default Not a muscle car but my next project

Just finishing up The TA I have been working on this past year. So last summer I picked this 55 Chevrolet 210 drag car. I have always wanted a 55 Chevrolet. I'm going with a classic street look most likely flat color white walls just a fun all around car to drive. The drive line is where it will be at. A classic 4X2 set up on a 327ci backed by a 4 speed. The car will need a new floor pan possibly some quarter work someone already raised the wheel wells. The doors, trunk lid and fenders are rock solid not bad for 60 year old sheet metal. The trunk pan is also in very good shape. It should be a fun build for myself. But if another paying project comes along this will be pushed into the corner until I get some free time. Just thought I would share....

Weiand 4x2 manifold. I guess they are very hard to find. I had a multi carb guy in Houston go through them. He did an excellent job. Bolt on and go.... he has been setting up muti carb units for 40+ years.
