Like the title says...a barn find as close as you can get in this day and time. I have known about this car for nearly 5 years now...but the owner was not interested in selling but more about talking about that he had one that was in good shape. To make a long story shorter...one day about 5 months ago...I asked him if he had it still and was it a 55 chevy? He said yes. I left it at that. 2months later i brought it up again and he mentioned that a person had come to look at it. So I asked what he was going to do...he said I dont know. I have delt with guy ike this for years...so i knew to take it easy. A few months went by and I seen him again and he said he was looking at buying some land and was thinking of building a house. SO I said you are going to have to get rid of some things then..he said yeah...I think so. SO another 1 month goes by and I see him again...this time I just out right said to him...you wanna sell that 55 or what? He started to mumble and I looked him dead in the eye and said" I am serious....what is the number on it" He gave me a number and I said send me some pics of it...i need to see..and again I am serious about this or I would be asking. I never got any pics.Two weeks go by and I call him and say Hey you never sent me pics...he text me and says go look at it and gave me the address to where it was...at this point i knew he was finally ready...So i asked him in person what he would take for it...bottom dollar..he gave me a better price. I went and looked at it and thought about it for a week...and we latter made a deal and I bought the car.
Beloware pics of the condition it was in. A 1955 Bel Air post car..original V8, 3 speed. Unmolested.. besides the 4 speed hold cut in the floor at some point. The tag in the trunk was 1971 NC tag and the title is a NC title. I found a old inspection receipt dated 826-1969 in glove box...a few thousand miles less than the odometer now..which is 95K.
