    The brown 58 has been repainted, they didn't have those colors at that time and you can also see the gray primer through the chips in the paint. Chevy didn't use gray primer on their cars.

    Squirrel is absolutely correct. 58 was repainted in the late 70's then again in the early 80's. My Dad did both paint jobs. This was their daily, and it went everywhere. When it is painted next time it will go back to original Aztec gold.

    It's been a great year. Retired in June. Started on the T Coupe that I have been gathering parts for since 2011. I have become realistic. I started selling some stuff off instead of adding to the pile including an OT car that I do not have time for. It's amazing, when you start putting projects together, you see what you can live without. IMG_0403.JPG IMG_1874.JPG
