Rods in Progress - 1947 Chevrolet Station Wagon

Eric has spent some time in Venice Beach. We think some of the Beach Boys must have rubbed off on him. Now the search was on for a woodie. A nice ’47 Chevy wagon was located in Southern California, and after a quick inspection, the car was purchased and brought to our shop.

The plan was to perform our standard conversion, a Heidts front end, Currie rear-end and a small block Chevy. However, once we started, we found things that forced us to go a little deeper. The result, some patch work and a new coat of paint and a trip to Chris Messano Wood Works for a tune up on the wood.

Look for Eric’s woodie at the NHRA Museum in Pomona in January titled Axle’s and Axe’s, Fender guitarists and their cars.
