What's your plans for it?
Looks like a good solid car.
It has the drive train out of a 1963 Chevy 2 station wagon, 6 cylinder engine, powerglide transmission and the rear end is a positrac. so going to go ahead and put in a v8 and probably a 350 or 400 tranny. Redo the interior and drive it as a rat rod until I can afford the body work and good paint job. first thing is to put a Heidt's independent front assembly under it. as that is the worst part of the car.

Scuff and buff it, set white walls and moon eyes be good to go

I may know somebody near me that could be interested in that '63 Chevy II power train.... a guy I know with a '63, very low mile car, original power train at present/ but he's been talking about converting his from 3 on the tree and 3 pedals to an auto trans.

36 was a mix of wood and all steel bodies depending on the model. 37 everything was all steel.

You don’t need to be a woodworker. Several guys make wood replacement kits for the bodies. They are just nailed in place.
