1957 Chevrolet Bel Air in the workshop

This Chevrolet Bel Air was dropped off today for some work. The owner hasn't had it long, now he's runs it around a bit there are a few things he'd like to improve. It's running very rich, a quick look shows it is fitted with an Edelbrock intake manifold and a Holley that doesn't look like it's been touched for years so I'll remove and rebuild the carburettor. It's running with the original drum brakes that, from experience, can be ok, but it has the original, and tiny, master cylinder so I'll fit a brake booster and new master, that should sort it out. If it doesn't there are a myriad of options when it comes to disc brake upgrades. It's also got an oil leak from the transmission, an exhaust leak and the washers aren't connected. That'll do for starters.
