Wow, I did join the RIGHT forum. Some nice, helpful folks who even like old cars! I’ll try my luck at sending a photo of the ’55 but a description will need to do for now:

1955 Chevrolet 3100 deluxe cab (short bed)
No Limit Engineering 4-link rear suspension
9” Ford rear
Fat Man coil-over front suspension
Aluminum gas tank under bed
700R4 overdrive transmission
Crate 4-bolt-main 350 (replaced the same setup that Dudebb had)

Some might say that the “hard work” is done because the frame/suspension is complete but the (rust free) body is still off…I like safari57’s advice on finishing the Sovereign first. That’s my plan: keep the girls happy! (BTW: your wagon is GORGEOUS!) So is yours str8strm! Nice cars, everyone.

Back to the trailer, I’ll follow GStephens advice and get the segment protectors installed. Probably at Inland Andy’s. Corona is an easy drive from Escondido. Those panels will nicely hide the worst of the two dents on our exterior. I’m going to try a paintless dent fixer guy on the other one which is just above one taillight.

All I can say about Vinny is that he (rest his soul) is the reason we were able to buy this fine silver beauty. Why an elderly Italian man would be living so far out in the Nevada desert is beyond me. We searched the trailer for a bag of cash, etc. but found only bugs and dirt.

LJH – we need to talk. I’ll try to post some pictures of the colors and fabric that my wife picked to compliment the brown motif. We’re trying a little “vintage Hawaiian look” to spruce things up.
