I just traded into my 55 a week ago last Sunday. I traded a finished 53 Coupe that I had restored from scratch. It was a hard decision after all that work. But the 55 is a very solid car. A 350 SBC and 350 trans had just been put in it. Along with a radiator, battery, alt, and dual exhaust. The rest of the car is original preserved 2 door post. The sheetmetal was Epoxy primered, and the inside has all original components. the inside shows its age, but is driveable. This summer, I'll drive it in the satin black and restore the interior as I go. I'll try to post pics often as I'll probably keep a record at Cardomain. I'll try to get used to this forum as I was on an H-Body forum all winter as I restored my (get this) 72 Vega hatchback.
