Hey, I was right, could tell by the quarter panel. I had a 57 Chevy, 235 6cyl with split header and 3 strombergs, sounded real cool too!

When I was a teenager (~14-15) ~ 1973-4 I used to work on a '53 chevy 4 door, even then I was a dreamer. JH ps I never got it running but spent many an hour working on it.

That old "Blue Flame" 235 was a tough motor. I had one in a '62 Chevy pickup. Only problem was that I wanted SPEED! Top end was literally 70 "going down hill with a tail wind", but the thing would pull a house down, if I could get enough traction.

I had a 52 coupe but I'm thinking 216 maybe ? Been a very long time. Also had a 54 5 window pick up with a 235. Like them Chevys !

I used to reassemble the Chevy 6's for farmers that took them apart and couldn't get them reassembled. They would tow the truck to where I worked will all the parts in the bed. Lost count of how many I have done. It was fun.

I picked up a 54' Chevy 210 with a 235 2 years ago from my wifes uncle. Had been in her family since new. Took some work and a few new parts but runs pretty good now. Still 6 volt and has the original radio in it. Not much music left on the AM Dial Mike

I cannot tell a Chevy story. How does that Wonderboy handle the snow? Without the Deck, that is a cool looking unit. Makes me want to find one.

the Wonder-Boy handles well in the Show, The newer one tires are knobbed, the older WB had smooth tires and would slide.
