Project: 1950 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery / 1993 Caprice Classic Body / Chassis Swap
This smokin’ 1950 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery will soon find its way on top of a 1993 Caprice Classic, a Craigslist purchase that will provide modern everything for this chassis / body swap build. The goal is to fully swap the b-body chassis, floor, wiring harness, lighting, seats and any other creature comforts for this build that will remain patina. The late-model donor will be swapped in a way that makes it feel like the has always been this way, and not restored…
Our 1950 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery jewel of a project car is loaded up and ready to head back to the shop where it will get torn down with a quickness and the body pulled from the chassis. The chassis is going to a friend that is restoring a ’50 Chevrolet but has a hacked up chassis due to a botched air-bag attempt.
Now in the shop, we can take a look at what we have…
The project car came without an engine or transmission, which is just fine in terms of this project.
We found it strange that this bumper guard was installed so that the rear door would not open. Hmm… We’ll move this to the front bumper anyway.
