My name is Gary Nelson, I live in Sunny San Diego County CA. I
am restoring to concourse condition a Black code C coupe. I am doing the same on
a 57 Imperial convertible.
Unfortunately those cars have taken a back seat to my first
love, a 33 Ford Vicky Street Rod that is under construction.
In 1961 I bought a black 300C coupe. All my friends and foes
were driving Chevy's and Fords. Here I was with that big ole Chrysler with fins
taller than I. After about a year I pulled the motor to rebuild and modify a
little. About 2 years later I swapped out the 392 for a 354 and sold the car.
The 392 motor was destined for my 23 “T” Roadster that was under construction
that I started building in 1957 before I had DL. I still own that roadster
My restorations are total frame off. Not one nut, bolt, or
screw does nut get removed for refurbishing. I personally rebuild every part for
my cars from relays to TF transmission. I learned allot working on these cars
and years ago was rebuilding for 300 club members. With a need for my cars I
started making and selling re-build kits for WP’s, PS pumps, PS boxes, brake
bellows. No longer rebuild parts for others, not enough time for my cars. I sell
parts and kits that I have remaining stock. Occasionally I will offer parts for
Take Care and have a Great Sunday,
