New member here. Looks like you have quite a collection! I have a 1952 Chevy Slimline Deluxe and would like to post photos but not sure how yet. Are you going to paint that Chevy of yours by yourself? That has become the biggest problem for me - mine needs a new paint job and out here in California the estimates are $15,000 to $20,000 minimum! I'm 3 hour drive from Tijuana, Mexico where I can get it done for about 1/3 of that but you really have to stay with the car to make sure you get what you're paying for. Wondering if you have any ideas, suggestions or what your experience has been with painting these old beauties?

New member here: All I can say about your Chevy Deluxe is WOW!! That is what I want mine to look like! Mine is a 1952 4-door sedan too and it has 52,000 original miles, not a speck of rust and almost all original in and out! The biggest problem for me is: The pain job is shot! I live in California (split between Palm Springs and San Francisco) and have taken it to 10 different shops for estimates. Every one has come in between $15,000 and $20,000 minimum!! I'm just not in a position to put that much into a paint job. Good friends are recommending I take it to Tijuana, Mexico (3 hour drive) where I can get it done for 1/3 of the California prices. Wonder what thoughts you have on this, how you got your car to look so wonderful and if you have any ideas or suggestions for me. I'd sure hate to have to leave this car 'as is' when it has such potential. Thanks for any thoughts you want to share.

Hi Classic car guy, unless having them look fully restored is your thing, I am going to say don't you dare paint that. First; a car is original only once, it won't make it any more valuable, it won't drive any better, and you can wax it up good and drive it whenever and wherever it suits you.

Hell boy that car has more fruit on it than my Bel Air, I'm a gonna have to buy a continental kit and a window air conditioner, that just aint right.

The color combo on that 52 Chevy looks good. Don't think I've ever seen another that color.

just something extra that didn't get in the way. the car needed a little color without getting color. I sell these and find it a talking point.

overall its just for show. nothing else.

Tito, could you please share the story behind your Gyro-Matic selector quadrant? I know what kind of car it came out of (late 40s-early 50s Dodge with the Mopar semi-auto trans), but I can't figure out why it is on your car now.

Apparently, you are using the stock Chevy column to shift "something", but I have no clue what that something might be. So, what kind of trans do you have in the car now and why did you add the Gyro-Matic quadrant?

sure man - i got it bc i plan to cut out of plexiglass my own piece to add the PRND21. I converted my three on the tree to an automatic with a turbo trans. so had frab wrok done to make it look original. I left it bc is was a pain to get on. I just have not gotten around to taking out the clear plastic piece and cutting out my own. will use stickers and have a needle as well that will show which gear i am in. I get that its mopar but its the only piece i could find that looked good to me.

I know its not original but if someone else drove my car who knows what gear they put my ride in.

Work in progress. good eye though. i plan to get it all done once my airguide Tach gauge is working. will put that on the column as well.

Hope this explains it.

Tito, thank you for your explanation. You did such a good job of mounting the Mopar piece that I thought you started out with a PG shifter and replaced only the quadrant. If you hadn't told me it was originally a manual shifter, I would never have guessed. I will very much look forward to seeing your pics when it is finished.

Hey, thank you. I am also realy glad with the stance, the car is frame laying.

I do not realy have a nice pic of the interior, but it's the original club coupe interior, only on the front seat there is a rift, so there is a mexican blancet on it.

Regards
Stefan
