    Hey guys, I've been searching for the thread about the Kustom '55 chev from the northwest. I believe its a blue car. I could be wrong tho. Anybody have a link to it?

    My brother is restoring my uncles '56 chev custom and he believes that they may have been built at the same time and possibly by the same shop/person. I'll get pics up of the '56 this week.

    Thanks
    Larry

    thanks guys, I'll see if I can get the picsup of my uncles '56 tonight. It has some different features than the '55, but the color and the interior are almost a spot on match.

    The original colors on these two cars are extremely close. Please remember, The pictures of the '56 I posted were from old polaroids that I scanned. I asked my uncle where he bought the car and he told me it was in Burien Washington. The guy who owned it lived on 10th just off 128th. Unfortunately he doesn't remember his name.

    it won't surprise me if someone remembers this car. There are a few guys on here that were around back when Don bought the car. Also, I'm sure you guys had to have hit Golden Gardens and a few other places with it back then.

    Too bad we don't have any pics of your '55 to show these guys!
