I haven't got any more pics of it yet mate,only what's on the Just Cars page.It's been a QLD club car for about the last 20 years is about all I know,the current owner had it a little over a year but he had to many cars so a few of them had to go.A few minor issues with it but pretty original.If I can get it to look similar to this one I'll be happy with that!...
It's been 35 years since I've owned a Chevy!...:(

It's probably about time I bought something after agonising over it for so long,haha being a FC/E UTE,Harley or a early Chevy Ute but it made sense because I love the early Chevy sedans.Still plenty of time for one of the others though only if I don't get a divorce,haha!...

That looks like an old Impala vertical gate shifter. First was down and foreward, then up and back to second, foreward to third. Reverse was down and back, under second.
I haven't seen one of them for years.

ok cool...sounds like an old Holden!..nice cruiser...I don't know why but I'm getting images of "driving miss Daisey"...btw that was supposed to be pics not pis...we wouldn't try and take the piss out of you ...ha... I'm assuming it was assembled by Holden? If so I didn't realise they were doing that at the same time as building Holdens? I may have my wires crossed ...

Looks good. I like the early 50s Chevs.
You can get a lot of old school speed equipment for the Blue Flame Six if you ever thought about keeping it in there.

Cheap chev v8 crate motor + turbo 350 (no changing gears with a dodgy hip) would be the way to go I reckon. Looks good mate.
