This group is for all who own, have owned, or want to own a 1949-54 Chevrolet. The '49-54 Chevy is suited to a number of build styles. Whether your taste runs to traditional kustoms, a more contemporary treatment, or even a high-ridin' gasser (real or pseudo), this body style can pull any of 'em off with ease. It's also still within the realm of the relatively affordable, despite the newest being more than 50 years old, and is pretty simple to work on and modify. Then there's the aftermarket serving these cars. They're pretty well catered for, with engine and trans mounts for all manner of motor transplants readily available from companies like Speedway Motors, Walton Fabrication, and Chassis Engineering, complete IFS units, from bolt-in (Chassis Engineering) to weld-in (Fatman Fabrications, Heidt's, Total Cost Involved), and rear suspensions or leaf springs (Walton Fabrication, POSIES, and Street Rod Headquarters). Body and floorpan repair panels are available from EMS, while pretty much all of the above and way more can be sourced through Street Rod Headquarters/Chevs of the 40's. And this is just scratching the surface. These cars are extremely well catered for in the aftermarket.
