Thank you!Glad to see that you made it over here.
Welcome to the site.
My only plans for it for now are to put some reverse supremes on it and some white walls. Just trying to figure out the right configuration because I’m not to smart when it comes to offsets and backspacing 😂. Then eventually paint it white and leave the blue top and give her the good ol ls swap for reliabilityWelcome to the forum. ! Love the dual antennas and that airbrushed top? Very cool. Your car looks pretty solid from the pics. What are your plans for it? There are lots of resto parts available for '61s, BTW, '61s are my second favorite, after the '65s of course 😉
I know nothing about these cars so I had no idea there were different styles of bumpers lol here is a picture of the front of the car. Im going to assume that it’s a 1 piece bumper as well but I have never really paid attention to it 😂Welcome! Super cool Biscayne! 1961 Chevrolet is my favorite, after 1967s, lol. My nephew has a 61 Bel Air 2 door flattop, so I'm familiar with these cars. I see you have a 1-piece rear bumper (as opposed to a 3-piece). Is your front bumper also a 1 piece? These are known as "California bumpers" and are desirable. Good Luck!
Oh wow. I guess the saying is true. You learn something new everyday 😂 that’s why I’m here for. I know I have a lot to learn. Thanks!Yes, your bumper is a 1-piece. Here is an example of a 1961 3-piece bumper:

Thank you! Usually I am not a fan of 4 doors but there was something about this car and I just had to have itHello from SoCal... Nice looking car! Love those cars with the lip over the rear window. And props for keeping the 4 door rolling and not parts cars!
It is actually. Original motor never rebuilt. Same with the 2 speed trans. I just had to have the rear main seal and oil pan gasket replaced. Debated pulling it out for an ls swap for reliability but just haven’t pulled the trigger on that yetYour car is sporting 235-6 emblems. Is the six cylinder still in it? These engines are pretty much in demand.
