This one makes mine look really short.
Sorry Jim, I like the stretch, but that rat rod is just weird IMHO
My nomad, been all over the country since we had it. Factory 348/powerglide, P/S and P/B car.
Bel Air I bought a while back. Says 39k on the speedo, but not sure as it's been painted. Still has the clear seat covers on the seats!! Factory 283/4bbl/turboglide, P/S and A/C!!! Hated to sell it, but it went to a buddy to make room for a 58 Buick Special from the original owner.
With a different front end treatment, from the firewall forward, it would have a more custom look. Still it is very creative.
R W, thanks for sharing the picture, it's not my style, but I appreciate you sharing it with us.
The yellow looks too dark for the correct color, but Colonial Cream (light yellow) was a factory 58 color and it ONLY came with a green interior. It looks great when the yellow is proper.
Just picked this up. Need to find some side trim and changing the color. Looking for a wagon a long time now we have a rare one from what I can tell just trying to find parts so far.
Stolen from vintage shots... A 2 door cop car .. must have been for highway patrol, chase car.. interesting wheels, wonder what engine it had?? Spot light thru fender....
This one belongs to a friend. He owned it years ago as a chopped drag car then sold it. A few years ago he bought it back unchopped it and completely redid it. It's a 409 w/trips, 4 spd car.
Delray with door side molding removed for police car emblem. Wonder on the engine choice, too?
That looks like the Michigan State Police emblem on the door. I would think more than likely it was a 348 car
looks like you are right about it being the Michigan State Police
Interesting one at the Run to the Sun car show yesterday...No the sun wasn't out...
There is just something about the sedan deliveries that interests me. That is a nice looking one, too.
Gotta love a sedan delivery, just look soo good ( iam biased though)
one more 58
^ That one's off the charts!
58 bel air on e bay
a few pics I took a few years ago at the Stray Kay Starliner in Wichita, KS
Couple other ones that I took in KC. Bel Air needs a tire and wheel change, but cool other than that!
Yes, I don't care for those big wheels and skinny side wall tires either. I also think the Impala with the multicolored flames doesn't appeal to me either.
One of my Father's employees, back in the 60's, had an Impala with the ' air ride " suspension. When he arrived at work everything looked normal. But during the 8 hrs. it would get lower, lower and look like a low rider. He had to start it and get the air pump running to get back to normal. Pretty funny at the time.
Wow, fuel injection on the Impala convertible! I don't think I've ever noticed someone that removed the side trim like that. It certainly gives it a different look.
