The purpose of this Blog

This blog is to detail my 43 years (1973 - 2016) with a 1928 Chevrolet tourer, affectionately called "The Red Chev".

The acquisition, restoration, improvements and my experiences over the years are covered in as much detail as I can remember.

Some of the later postings include car club outings and other vintage car items that I hope will be of interest to people.

If you have the time, scroll back to where it all began in 1973 and follow the journey so far.

Thanks for dropping by.

Regards Ray Dean

Reclaimed from the Scrap Heap? Part 2 - Various

On a roll now, and wanting to get all these parts either sorted out or thrown out, the soaking tank of Rust buster has been working overtime for just short of a week.

Let the pictures tell the story, first being 3 x 11/42 differential pinion gears, appear to be NOS but were very rusty. Now in great condition, slight surface pitting, but I have run pinions a lot worse. These were the find of the parts collection.


2 Oil Pumps, in good serviceable condition


A used but very good 11/46 Crown Wheel


A Thermostat housing, couple of shackle plates, half an oil pump, and a truck steel hub cap, that I will convert to wheel puller.


Uni Joint bits


2 good single blade fans, in primer after being de rusted.


The same item ready for selling on EBay.


Piston Rods (before)


And after
