Re: 1956 Chevy 3100 Corvette Suspension

Went to check out the truck. Still some small things to wrap up and still a good amount of work to do. I actually got to drive the truck for the first time in almost 7 years. It sounded great and it was awesome. Overall Iím pretty happy with it. Itís starting to look good.

Re: 1956 Chevy 3100 Corvette Suspension

Just got done reading this entire thread.
First have to say great job on the thread and keeping us updated on your progress and all the details.
Second, what a beautiful truck, can't wait to see the finished product!!

Just have a small question for you, how did you get the tires to fit in the rear fenders? Widen the fenders or narrow the rear?

I had to narrow the rear 2.75Ē to get the wheels to fit. I didnít want to widen the fenders.

Thanks everyone for the comments. Thereís been a lot of bumps in the road especially on the last 10% on getting it done but Iím almost there. As far as what the color is itís supposed to be blue blood red.
