    My Dad’s ‘55 back in the day. Sold in 1980 in Central Texas. Was running a 396 dual quad with line lock.

  4. Guessing this car has been posted in this thread at some point, but also see lots of missing pics since it is an old thread... Anyway, now my favorite 55 Chevy gasser considering it’s story and that I got to work on it a little... Not mine, but Rusty Sampsel’s and was his dads before it was his.

  8. Yes I know this has taken me a long time but I have not been in the best of health for a very long time including a fight with Cancer that I am happy to say that I won. I know I keep saying this but it's getting close. And so is my Nomad.
    God Bless everybody and Bless our health.
     
  9. Primed the engine oil system. Just waiting on my Carbs to come back from the plating shop. Making old Carbs look new. Whole car is a new build so I can't put crusty old 650 Center Squirters on it and expect it to look good.
    Seriously, I tried that and it just looked terrible.
