1938 Chevy Coupe

This week we have a 1938 Chevy coupe owned by Rick and Wand Albiston of Cardston Alberta Canada. Originally it was from Texas but was imported into Manatoba Canada around 5 years ago. They purchased the car 3 years ago and have been slowly but surely rebuilding it since. It's powered by a 1957 Chevy Corvette 283 v8 paired with a 700r4 transmission and 10 bolt posi rear end. The interior is very luxurious, featuring all leather including the dash and moldings, it also has all the comforts of power steering, power disc brakes, A/C, 2 speed electric wipers, hands free phone, and a beefed up stereo system. Electric door poppers and shaved handles also are equipped on the car. The trunk is fully upholstered and looks as good as the interior. Rick and Wand have won many trophies with it and love the attention it gets wherever they go.
