Look very closely, can you find the glaring mistake on this restoration? (other than the missing hubcaps)

I agree with 58Mustang ! It certainly does not look like it was done by

a professional. There are restorations and there are restorations ! Wayne

I bet that owner of the first car is having just as much fun as you guys.

Most people that pic others cars apart don't even have one of their own.

Whats with the paint job on the 55 above? it looks to be three tone.

How does that feel?

^^^^No one's picking the car apart. Most of the comments have to do with the OPs post, calling it a "restoration".

It's more like a "spray and pray" than a restoration.

Another thing to consider abut that "restoration" is it may have been done by a first time restorer and on a budget. Chrome is very expensive and that part may be coming when budget allows. Looks like a driver that someone is having more fun with than someone with a 100% perfect restored trailer queen!! Just My opinion.

Has there been any mention if this car is for sale or is it just someone just showing off their ride?

I believe it was just about the Bel Air emblem being upside down. as the title of the thread says.
