Hot Rods My new to me Hot Rod

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Groucho, Jul 10, 2020.

  1. I've been looking for a very LONG time for one more toy for my collection. Slim pickins, ugly cars, stupid prices are just some of the obstacles in the 3-4 YEARS I've been looking. Now that I'm retired and have time and space to keep something, it's just been a bitch! This was brought to my attention around 5 weeks ago. It was coming from back east as part of a trade deal a friend did. Delay after delay had me on the edge of my seat waiting to see this thing. Pictures looked great! Total old school built in the early 60s to do the show circuit back there. A real well kept time capsule! 56 Pontiac motor, dual quads, magneto, and 4 speed hydro. Cool shit. 20200706_140511.jpg IMG_6057.jpeg 20200706_160535.jpg 20200706_160521.jpg 20200706_135529.jpg 20200706_155353.jpg

    I like it a lot too! even though I am Mag wheel kind a guy, I think some kind of cool full wheel cover from the late 50's early 60's{preferably Pontiac because of the motor} on the wide white would make it perfect. VERY nice car, would not change anything except the 80's looking smoothies. Larry

    Wonderful. Beautiful. Checks all my boxes. In the early sixties on my way to second shift work, I had to pass a State Trooper Barracks. One of the troopers drove a light metallic blue version of that. Always made my day! (probably not as nice as yours)
