Restoring classic cars is no easy feat, especially when it comes to dealing with body work. Measuring, cutting, welding, filling, sanding, priming, sanding, painting, buffing. We said sanding twice because there’s a ton of it. All of this work for just one facet of the car.
There is, however, an alternative: you could take the ‘one-quarter’ approach, as we call it, and restore only the front clip of the car, and absolutely nothing else. Sure, you might not be able to cruise down the strip, flaunting your classic ride. But with a little creativity, you’ll have one of the coolest, if not the coolest, toolboxes in the world.
Yes, these are actual photos of an actual toolbox in some awesome person’s garage. Taking the front clip of a late 1940s (or early ’50s) Chevrolet 3100 Truck and converting it into a toolbox with tons of space is a different approach. We weren’t sure what to say about it at first, but after cracking a couple of jokes about it, we started warming up to this here ‘Chevybox’.
