1962 Chevy II 300

 

Built in Canada Oshawa plant

My GM Canada info shows 3248 four door sedans built and just 629 two doors in total. 

It was a Christmas Eve tipsy eBay buy in 2019 which became a full on Covid 19 build. The car sat somewhere in Washington for 25 years - oil change sticker read 7/9/94 57030 miles and when received it in Dec 2019 the odometer read 58930 miles. Sporting a 6 cyl high thrift engine when I received it took me only a couple of rides around the block before tearing it down. Can add to the story

I wanted to run the stock steal fuel tank tank full length tail pipes so mock-up was essential to clear the 295/55-15 12” wide Mickey Thompson ET street tires on a 15x10 Weld Rodlites that are disguised with a waterjetted 5 hole lug plate to resemble the front Fenton 15x3.5” Slots wrapped in Protrac pizza cutter rubber
