Butch's '49 Chevy Sedan "Fonzie"
son has nick-named this one “Fonzie”. So were going to do a whole
“Happy Days” theme inside.
Bought this in November ’06 for $3000. I thought it was a fair price since it was all complete and stock except for the upgraded and rebuilt 235 engine. I upgraded to a 12 volt system, also opted for an alternator (so glad I did), converted back over to manual choke and just dressed up the engine a bit with a few chrome goodies. I plan to paint it this spring a two tone White with Camel top, wide white walls and continental kit. I’ll also attempt to take on the interior myself. I just installed a 12 volt defroster/heater motor and it sure blows out the heat.. love it. My plans aren’t to necessarily make a show queen, but rather something I can drive around (regardless of weather) and enjoy. I’ve always wanted a “three on the tree” and now I happily have one. Love this car and plan to continually update and tweak it…. Fonz’ is a keeper.. “Ayyyyeeee!!!”.
