And my 132nd 55-6-7, probably die owning this one, hope to finish it before then... car 132... of 132 that I have owned...SOFAR...lol
I only paid 75bucks for this oilburning 55 had an actual vette engine...
My ‘57 is 60s style. If you were the little old lady that didn’t modify her car in the 60s..
Sorry- couldn’t resist. Love driving it though
My daughter's '55.
One time I went to pick up a girl on a date. her mother made a remark about my car being jacked up in the rear like a cat in heat.
This car is spectacular!!
My dad and I built this 55 Bel Air in the winter of 86-87 as an early 60's mild custom. It was finished the night before my senior prom in high school, this first picture taken in front of my then girlfriends house before prom. The car was/is painted a black cherry with a grey tuck and roll interior. Some trim was shaved, some saved. It also sported a 59 Impala steering wheel. The always perfect 59 Caddy hubcaps. Back then the wide whites were bias ply, today they are radials.
These two pictures were taken last summer, the car still wears the same paint and interior from 1987. All done in PPG DBU with DAU82 clear that has held up pretty well. Was has suffered is the body work underneath. We didn't strip the old body work and paint prior to doing what we did. So the bottom layers have moved around and shrunk a bit. That lettering on the trunk has also been there since the summer of '87. And the license plate, well to me so fitting since I feel like that same 17 year old kid every time I get behind the wheel of the car.
This is my grandparents 55 Chevy, they have owned the car darn near close to 50 years. Currently at 3 generations have worked on the car. Just finished restoring the car and putting it back to a late 60's vibe, though thinking of a wheel swap to some chrome reverse wheels for a more early 60's vibe
New Towel City cheater slicks.
It’s been a few years since she’s seen the road, but here’s my ratty ol’ 60’s style Htop.
