    Cool 1955 Chevy LS1 Handyman

    1955 Chevrolet 210 Wagon. I've purchased a new tube chassis custom to 55 -57 Chevys with C-4 front and rear suspension with a 2002 LS1 out of a T/A with 17,000 miles. I'm looking for 450 - 500 very streetable HP. Smog free system of coarse, and money is an object.

    The Handyman you are referring to I believe would be the wagon that doesn't have the glass in the back,,,,which to us old geazers was always considered a Delivery wagon.

    Funny you mention money being an object, yet I don't know anything cheap on 5-6-7 chevy's anymore,,,they have gotten as bad as corvettes. There is nothing cheap about your setup either.

    I purchased all new trim and chrome for my 56 Nomad many years ago,,,and these have a ton of stainless and chrome,,,,and I just can't believe the prices this stuff goes for now. After collecting all this stuff I have kind of changed directions with the car,,,,I don't know if I even want to paint it now,,,just leave the factory 2-tone blue on it and store the new chrome away. Since I have kept the old school theme with nostalgia parts throughout the drivetrain I kind of want to leave the rest of the car alone now since it has a certain patina to it. It's right out of the 60's with a fresh 327, tunnel ram, muncie 4-speed and 4.56 gears,,,very much like I ran the car throughout the 80's with alot of vintage parts I collected over the years. We recently made 467 HP on a DTS dyno with this little screamer,,,,it's a little more stout than the setup I previously ran. With ported camel hump heads, tunnel ram with a pair of 660's and a large flat tappet solid cam.

    Glad to see another 5-6-7 chevy owner here

    Handyman

    The Handyman wagon refers to the 2 door utility wagon. The same as the Delivery but with windows. I wish I had the Delivery but I'm happy with what I have. As usual my dreams are way bigger than my pocket book. But, I do have most of the parts, and the body is maybe 85% - 90%. At this point I just need a big place to pull the body, change out the pans and drop it on the new chassis.

    Good talkin to ya. I need to get back to work.
