Photos in the “'53 project car” Album

Album photo
Description: While my truck has been in paint, I have been looking around for parts for my '53 Belair. I found this in Street Rodder Mag and I think it will make a great upgrade to the front suspension. There are other parts that I have been looking at as well. But I will be using a power rack instead of the manual rack in these photos.
