This 1938 Chevrolet came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop in need of a re-powering, some upgraded suspension from Speedway Motors, wiring, and more. The V8 Speed team installed a Chevrolet Performance Parts 350 cubic inch V8 engine and rebuilt the TH350 transmission, and plans call for the installation of a Vintage Air A/C system as well. American Autowire leads will tie all the electricals together, while a new fuel tank from Tanks, Inc. will store the fuel until the gas pedal is mashed! New fuel and brake lines will be installed, along with upgraded brakes and a Mustang II style suspension system from Speedway Motors. It's a cool car that has a lot of family history, and we're happy to bring it back to the road for our customer!
