It's Butch THUNEY. I looked at the plexiglass windows that came out of that car once; decided against it and went with red acrylite instead. Really stood out on an all white 56 Chevrolet Model 150 Utility Sedan.
I am Butch/56sedandelivery.
Nice to see real bad ass Tri-5 Gassers rather then Posers who think removing the front bumper makes their car a Gasser.
Thanks for posting.
I agree with that, BUT, in 1965, when I was in HS, I bought a '55 150 2 door six stick that I immediately removed the front bumper, radiused the rear wheel wells, painted it in black primer, and in my mind I was King of the Hill. Later I added 3 1 barrels on an Offy manifold and a Hurst 3 speed Mystery shifter, all with after school money. God, was proud of that car.
Sometimes it's just what you can afford.
Always love the look of these.
I heard that....

Looks like a poseur to me---no roll bar, side and interior mirrors, street exhaust and a totally era incorrect cowl hood.
Is that a flat bottom boat on the hood of that car?
