- I liked anything with iconic styling & found '65-67 Chevelle & Beaumont's easier to acquire


Beau's 1955 Chev. 210 (2 door post), automatic with a 6 below, was solid blue, when purchased.
- paid C$600 off a retired old lady
- sold to my brother, after I drove it for a while / frame mounts (body to cab) rusted out
- Twin67 auto body restored the car / he welded the front fender light caps on, to fix rust through
- while this Larry fully brazed the bottom left half quarter on, with brothers assistance (clamping & cooling patch)...he trusted me, to keep heat warpage under control
- the car was sanded nice and straight, in fathers house garage...on family farm
- restored over the winter, 40 years ago / running a 1500W electric heater
- after a fresh repaint, no evidence of our panel welding could be found
- a very respectful restoration, for us self-trained auto body amateurs
- playing with old cars, on the farm / best of fun times
Sweet! I don't like the color, though. That's okay. I got over Ruby Red's color.
