Hi Tommy That was done for a Bourbon promo, the other side has the Larsen gas company. Its a sponsor gag from a British car show and most people miss it. Obvious when the doors are open.

Hi Keith, I wouldn't worry about that because I have had to hold the door open and show some folk before they realized. Hundreds of people have asked where the lights had gone, I just smiled and said they keep those.
Some of the bikini models that were draped over the car didn't either.
Before you ask I lost all the photos of that when a hard drive failed.
Have you got the Larsen gas company one worked out. It's on the other side.

Hi Honest sleep, I bet Griffey don't like folk to touch your car. I noticed you car has powerglide badges on the boot so I think it will be a 235 if that's the case. Its not a full pressure oil one as they were a bit later. Ray will be able to confirm the exact details if I'm off the mark.
If you are going with the 292 then what transmission and diff will you be using? The later sixes don't bolt to the torque tube drive power glides. You would only need a T350 with that torquey 292 but you could go with a 4 speed auto if you were chasing a bit more economy.
The 292 are an easy fit width wise and steering but they are about 2" longer than the original engine and you cant set them too far back or you will never get the rocker cover off. There are some fixes around using short water pumps but it is also common to move the radiator forward. A standard radiator can go a little way forward but a later style cross flow can go way forward as it lays horizontally not vertically like the original.
Be aware that if the car is an original powerglide the torque tube diff has a 3.55 ratio and is much sort after by guys with manual 3 speeds looking for some more speed.
Don' throw the early powerglide away as they are different in some places from later ones and guys will always be looking for spares.
If you don't want to swap out the driveline then the biggest Chevy six is the 261 and ideally you want one from 58-62. Common in light trucks and school buses etc. An alternate that will fit your bell housing is a GMC six but they are getting scarce and have the same length issues as the 292.
Cheers Kiwi

Thank you. Yes 55 eyebrows, I cut the entire 55 head light section out of some 55 fenders, then used the Haggen Frenched head light bucket & trim ring.

Update on Rosie the Woody... after 50 years of sitting I decided to rebuild the fuel pump and carb, new gas tank/sending unit, main fuel line and had the radiator re-cored. Plan on Pertronix once I get her running... learning as I go and enjoying ever minute!

Are you going with the Coker radials or bias ply tires? I have the radials on my 54 and I'm very happy with them. IMHO, they are a lot safer than the bias ply tires.

I bought the Coker 205/75R15's. Radials. They were the closest tire to the originals. (27 inches high) They are 27.1" high. Close enough for me. The only problem I have is the 205 is just wide enough to NOT fit in the spare tire well in the trunk. I'll have to work on that. The tires on her when I bought her were the 670/15 bias plys. Tread looked like new but the sidewalls were cracked and checked. Almost afraid to drive it to the tire shop. I trailered her home 50 miles. The tire in the trunk may have been an original. It had a tube . Tire guy had a tough time with the valve stems. Had to have someone bring him some from another store. I guess the old chevy rims had big holes. Anyway, they're on and tracking nicely. Look great. I'm taking her in Thursday for a carb rebuild. Stumbles badly off idle. Need a new accelerator pump. The old leather one just is not going to swell up enough to work properly.

Just get you a skinny spare. It won't be on the ground often (we all hope) anyway. You'll be very happy with the radial ride compared to the bias ply.
