1953 Chevrolet 6400 (Stovebolt 235)

A friend of a friend would like to get this old Chevy hauling again, needs a few things, but not as much as you might imagine. We knew almost nothing going into this. I looked up the old Stovebolt later that day and found out that the engine only displaces 235 cubic inches! I figured it was at least five liters or more... and according to the owner it tops out at around 55mph because the gearing is something in the sevens! (7.xx) We also get to drive a really cool Quadravan(?) Ford van with a C6 and 460. I'm assuming the running gear is sourced from a 70s F-series, but don't quote me on that.

Testdrive! 1985 Ford LTD Crown Victoria
This car has a low 56k on the clock! (Verified after video was shot via Carfax) Found at a local dealer. I was seriously considering trading my '87 Olds for this nice Panther. Good guys at the dealer, but they just couldn't give me enough to cover the cost. I considered selling the Olds myself to get this 'Vic, but decided against it since I wasn't sure how long that'd take. Not a show car by any means, but a superb daily driver. I was impressed with how well this CFI car ran. Oh, and if anyone at the dealer finds this footage I hope you didn't mind me taking video of the car! I figure it's free promotion, but if you want me to take it down just ask.





1977 Oldsmobile Delta 88, Summer 2011
From this past summer. The "Chief" is still a daily driver and has now traveled more than 25k miles since I bought it a few years back. It still runs and drives very well. In this video the Exhaust is mostly open, but has been fitted with another newer grid-style catalytic converter. (The previous one was destroyed by road debris)





Dual Crank - '74 Catalina, '76 Torino
The '74 Catalina is being stored over here while it undergoes a tuneup. Both haven't been started in weeks.





410 Merc. FE, Warm Day Cold Start
Originally from a '67 Marauder. LoPo 428 heads. Starts easy on nice days as long as there is fuel in the carb! It was around 70°F out when the video was shot.
