New project-------1955 66C

110 posts in this topic

I said I wasn`t going to have any more restoration projects. That was 3 cars ago.

The car is complete with the exception of the jack. Rust issues are minimal.

WHAT not a "54? :(

Congrats Bob, that baby is gonna be beautiful when done. Love the white and Gulf Turquoise over and under like that. So 50's fun in the sun colors. I bet the interior is green? Do you know the history of the car. It must have been the first to do "something" for you to own it. So you'll be dropping it off at HC's when you pick up the four door I reckon. :)

If you start running out of room I can help with storage of one....

Honest Charley will be the "go to" shop for 55's.

'scuse me, I gotta go work on my 66C so I don't get embarrassed.

Glenn,

Probably not, HCG is booked up but I`m talking with a local restoration

shop who can get right on it. It`s a three man shop and won't be as

fast as Honest Charley. I think it will take a year to complete.

. Rust issues are minimal...

Reminds me of the 78 Electra I once looked at, advertised as no rust on the car. And it was true. It was all on the ground around the car. LOL

Bob, great car. Gonna look great next to the prototype. Pretty soon you'll need one of those old style car carriers to get to chows.

Went to check on the progress.

Floor, trunk pans and quarter panel have been replaced.

He tells me that he is good, slow and expensive. I agreed.

Reminds me of the motto we once had for the maintenance shop here, "We'll fix it immediately, no matter how long it takes.........."

great project, would love to own a mid-50's GM convertible....

My shop gets out of shop, OFTEN, so doesn't always mean POOR WORK QUALITY.

I wish you well,

Heck, most of the time I gotta move something outta the way to get to my car. Have to be selective on which side I work on when. Matt

What color(s) are you doing the interior and the convertible top?
