I'm from the north shore (Massachusetts) in the USA.
I have a 1957 Volvo tp21 #621
It has been modified a bit before I got it years ago.
this includes larger 36" goodyear suregrip tires on the original rims,
Chevy 350 engine
Chevy Th350 transmission
Modern interior makeover
front window and hatch sealed up
custom front bumper
and a list of other things.
I'm in the process of fabricating perches to use the original GM motor mounts
and I'm also installing a better power steering pump.
Also looking to fabricate new fenders. The original are showing alot of rust for the front ones, this was due to modifications made to them before I got it.
Some of the things I've done would be:
new transmission filter + seals
new headers and exhaust
stripped the engine down to the block + heads and replaced all the freeze plugs
new edlebrock intake manifold
new holey carburator
full tune up,
new water pump and pulley and fan
pulled the radiator and flushed it
new radiator hoses and T-stat
new fuel pump,
Honed out the wheel brake cylinders and replaced the rubbers
replaced 90% of the brake lines
among a list of other things.
The Hi / low work perfect, The lockers work perfect, the body is in great shape, no rott holes, the frame is excellent. All in all its a very nice machine, just a bit far from being stock.
I'll be continuing to work on this project, although not much is going to get done because winter is about here and I have a close climate to you guys. I don;';t really want to part with it but I could really use the money other ways.
Thanks for reading..
