55 four door 210, 6 cylinder/3 speed on the column. It has an OVERDRIVE lever under the dash. I have not seen one of these before(in person).For the past two weeks, I've been gathering pieces. She looks pretty bad but its a good solid foundation. I've brought back some in worse shape. I've got another 4 door 55 210 coming next thursday but its really rusty and will be using some of its parts for this one. This is a project that probably won't get started on till next spring. I got some American Racing Outlaw wheels, brand new tires, saginaw 4 speed and a 305 gathered for it already. POOR THING! Looks sad don't she?

Park it in your front yard put some lights on it, a jack-o-lantern or two around it, and a picture of you driving it, and that thing'll scare the **** out of the neighborhood kids on Halloween!

I'm going to clean out the crap in it tomorrow and fill it up with parts for winter storage. I had to put a rear end in it. The trans is still in it.

were you bringing home lost animals and such as a kid too?
"Look ma...can I keep it?"

You sure have a knack for finding them.
And you get them looking good in short order.

An old 55 on it's way to be forgotten and dissapear could'nt be happier than coming to your place, Hafrod. That's where they know they will be taken care of and be brought back to life again.

Good luck with this project! :tu

Got it cleaned out. It was full of leaves, acorns, rat poop, and DUST. I gave it a soaking with the water hose. Only found 1000 spiders! :D I'm going to remove the heater control unit from the dash. The chrome on it is very nice so I'll get it polished and put away. Then I'm going to pack it FULL of parts that are packed in my garage. I guess I got a shed thats a little different than every one elses in my neighborhood. It has some bad floor pans but the inner and outer rockers, under body braces, doors, and toe boards are good. Someone thought it was a boat I guess, it has some fiberglass on the floors. The trash can was empty when I started.
