Default 1935 Chevrolet Knee Action

Most folks never get to see it this close. As every old car seemingly gets MII IFS, there are any number of stock suspensions going to the recycler.
I saved this early Chevy Knee action suspension from the junker.
I just happened to have a 1935 Chevy, myself.
Now, I have spare drums and spindles and rear axle and transmission. Rebuilt knee action, supposedly. Rebuilt brake hydraulics.
We shall see..

Ha! Good eye! That’s a 1920-era Little Giant Power Hammer waiting for my blacksmith-wannabe Sons In Laws to give it love!
Sheesh! These kids! You gotta kiss their ass just to use awesome tools. I never, ever had anything like this...

Someone should mention that Belknap sign. Maker of Bluegrass brand tools. Another name from the past.

That particular sign is the local “Godfather”. He owns the best pump and well company around here. We’re still coming out of a huge drought. Scott Belknap saved a bunch of farms. Too many to count.
