The Old School Chevy
1954 Chevrolet 210 owned by Jesse James. The car was restyled on the 15th episode of second season of the Monster Garage TV-Show by a team of old kustomizing legends. The team included Bill Hines, Gene Winfield, Norm Grabowski, Dick Dean, Fat Jack, John Robinson Jr., Michael Hines, and Jesse James.
The guys chopped the top and sectioned the car 3 inches. The inline 6 motor was retired for a V8 crate motor. Rather than sub framing the car, Fat Jack and his son John customized the stock frame for accepting the new engine and turbo 350 trans. The Old School Chevy was completed in 5 days, and had a total build cost of $23,360.
