Briefly about the project

We need a cool shop wagon to could use as a test bed and show car. This hot rod started out life as a stock Chevy Greenbriar family wagon we found sitting in a yard in San Jose California. What followed was a head to toe transformation that included engine, drivetrain,suspension, body and interior.

We went through every system in this vehicle and sorted it out like any project car we do. This car now turns heads, fun to drive and handles more like a Camaro than a wagon.
