Everybody has to start some where!!
My future gasser the day it arrived.
great start. cant believe ya found a glass nose.......
Here's my half finished 4 door POS:
NOTE: Its only got the Keystones on it because the tires on them hold air. I eventually want black rims with baby moons and whitewalls.
here are some of my 55
Nice photos. Good looking project you have going there. Tasteful.
My new project....I spent pretty much everything I had in the car budget
to get it bought and then running......so you'll have to bear with me until
I can afford to make it good looking.......
dig the car......... well the wheels kinda suck but everything else including the pipes are cool,good find
Yep, I'm begging Santa for some Cragars...
My buddy BIG KEVs blown big block '56
She ain't much but she's mine, all mine!
Poor fella, sorry for your luck
My two projects,
Lippy, she looks rock solid.
I read a few interesting facts on the tri-fives in a book I have that chronicles the development of the 1955 Chevrolet and the 265...
They interview the engineers that designed the body, chassis and engine.
For instance... they designed all three grilles, '55-6-7 at the same time... the car, during it's development, had a split winshield... The stamped steel rocker, which was just one of the many revolutionary parts of the new Chevy v8 was developed by a Pontiac engineer, they didn't want to pay him to think outside the box, so he developed it in his basement at home.
This is one of the few pics I have remaining to remind me of my '55 convert built in 1960-61. 56 Packard taillights in extended fenders, rolled pan with split Pontiac bumpers....389 Pontiac engine. I'd give a lot to have it back.
Sorry about the photo quality.
some Chevy styling in clay
notice some cars are 2dr on one side and 4dr on the other side
There are some really amazing rides in this thread. This one is especially evil.
DITTO! More info please...
Oh man, I wouldn't change a thing! Okay, a 327/4-speed and a stronger diff but it looks great just like that.
lippy,,,,, wow,, that 55 is sooo cool....
im not wild about bel-air post cars,,,,, but i wouldnt change a thing on it.....
my dream car would be to find an orig black 210 55 with black-ish interior, black wheels, blackwall tires, and small caps.......
this car is out of control
Damn I wish I was better at posting pix. My '57 210 BBC,tunnel ram M22 Ram rod shifter, roll cage, straight axle 4.11 detroit locker, built my own side pipes, did everything myself so far, my pal is painting it. Radiusing wheelwells like proj.X in Hollywood Knights.
Was my 57 Nomad. Sold it about a month ago to jump into the Ford A club
here's one of my 57
that's a sweet heart you have there
i've always wondered what the top from a 4dr hardtop would look like on a 2 door
My 55 I've had since 1990
My 57 Bel Air May 95 when I got it
Influenced by Scott Sullivan(Cheezwhiz) and that black 57 Hardtop.
This has been my Everyday driver since '97
I sold this to finish my Hardtop..
