Parallel projects 1956 convertible
Permalink  
 


Bought two cars last October.

One a 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air convert.

Burned under hood and dash panel.

The other was a 1964 Cutlass Convert, complete, good bones.

Vickies first car was a 1964 Cutlass convertible that I repaired and built.

I stupidly "loaned" it to my brother-in-law shortly after Vickie and I were married.

Was reminded of that mistake for the next 50 years or so.

One of my more stupid mistakes in lifebanghead

Have been watching for one for years.

This one popped up, packaged it with the Burned Convert.

Seemed like a good idea, it has "Good Bones" 

Roger overhauled and adjusted carburetor and reinstalled, I popped a battery in all by myself!

Runs out very well.

Now I have a running back to the 50s car.

Great people, Titles just took a while to work its way through the Legal system.

Trying to get my Photo Sync to work, will post photos when rebooted.

The 1956 is a bit more to deal with.

Like I need more projects.

The "Boys" are itching on this one too.

Still purging lesser priorities to make room.

Remember, I am a "Project Pollinator." 

Bounce back and forth on a whim.

The "INDNIAL" plate is for the 56.

That '56 looks like an interesting project. Can't wait to see progress photos!

The Cutlass is a REALLY nice car. Karl will tell you it needs paint, but he is a lifetime body and paint guy, who can pick out the smallest imperfection. I wish the paint on my '66 SS was this nice.
What you don't see is the Blue top to match the Blue interior. Rare combo and, in my opinion, much cooler than black or white...thumbsup
