I joined the forum a couple months ago but haven't gotten around to an intro... I have a 64 2dr sedan that was my first car which I purchased in high school. It was my daily driver for 10 years. When I discovered modern cars with with AC and other niceties this was put to the side. It was shiny when I parked it but 25 years later I have decided to dust it off and get it back on the road.

I haven't driven it much yet but so far I have installed a CBR manual R&P with uppers and lowers and a new tilt column, power disc front and rear, wiring harnesses, new wheels, and a vortec roller crate motor. Mechanically everything from the firewall forward is new and I am working my way backwards. Long term wish list is overdrive, AC, and to swap my manual for a power R&P...

Yeah that's definitely on the list. Not sure what color I'll go with though. Been looking at "the red car" (as it's affectionately named by my family) for too long...

But I'd keep it as-is and cruise it.
I second that motion! Love the color and honest Red Badge of Courage! Makes for a great story of its origin and history too!

Welcome to the site Dan.. That’s a pretty cool lookin ChevyII..! If that’s original lacquer paint it might be able to revive it somewhat. Last summer I got motivated one day and started cleaning my mothers first car bought new in 63. It’s been parked since around 1975ish..

This is all original paint.
