A friend of mine bought a 1953 Chevy Belair 2 door hard top 15 years ago.
When he got the car he payed $2200 for it. It had the original drive line, but would only do 80 kmh. So with dreams of driving it to his work a hour from home each day, it had it taken to a old car body shop for a engine swap. Engine of choice was a 400 small block.
Sadly the car sat there at the back of a quarter square mile of old cars for the next 15 years. I saw it for the fist time this spring. It has no drive line left, and was sitting sunk into the soft dirt. I lifted it with a jack, pumped up the two rear tires, and was able to pull it out of of the yard slowly, down the narrow lane between the rest of the old cars.
Here is the pics of loading it on my trailer.
After a hours drive, it's at it's new resting place.
My really good friend Al came to give me a hand. He has a 1934 hot rod.
