Quite the project you got going, George. I have to ask, why Vermont plates?

Chevy was last tagged in Missouri, in 1994. When I bought it, Owner said he had Title. Title was for 1941 Four Door. Had options of going to local Lawyer, paying 400 Bucks, to have Judge get Title.
Getting a Bonded Title, for 425 Bucks, or sending Notarized Bill of Sale, to Vermont. Vermont does a Title Search, just like other Two. Vermont does not issue Title for vehicles over 25 Years old, just registration, which can be traded to MO DMV, for title. Did not know that they were sending tags,bought renewal sticker this year.

Reason for Vermont Tag. Have not decided, if I want permanent Historic Tag, or Regular Tag Yet.
Historic MO Tag, which lasts forever with no vehicle inspection, is only partial use, requires log sheets of driving.

I see you can use "Year of Manufacture" plates in Missouri. I didn't see any restrictions listed and it shouldn't be too hard to find one. That's what I have. The only restriction ours has is "not for general transportation", but who would know?

I think, next project, will be an all terrain creeper that raises up, so old codgers can get up off the ground. Reason for edit, added thought...Think I will go back and put more light on intake, so I can be more proud of my picture.

Wow, they look very close in the photo, not sure which I would use. Suggest leave as is and see how paint job holds up, then replace if necessary.

I'm with one4dad. The painted grill looks pretty good from the pics so I'd see how the paint held up before switching.

But I'd definitely keep that grill. Hard to get decent ones these days!

Hard to tell the difference in the photos. I've used rattle can chrome on small parts under the hood that aren't exposed to the sun, bugs, and washing, seems to hold up well to engine heat.

My neighbor is putting a V8 in his 85- 1/2 ton, and asked me-if I knew anyone that would give him a Hundred bucks for the 4.3, it's got 48546 miles on it. I decided to bring it home.

You need at least Three projects, going at the same time, so it looks like you know what you are doing.
