We owned a 55 Ford, I customized it, with the help of JC Whitney's catalog. But it was not the Chevy.
My sweet wife came out of the house , “What in the name of common sense is this?”
“This, my love, is my dream car, this is a 1955 Chevrolet!”
I worked on this vehicle, I redone the inside( again, with J.C. Whitney’s help). I sanded it down and painted it myself. This was a great car. The Gas tank had many leaks in it, but I learned early that a bar of soap will stop most leaks in a gas tank. Just keep rubbing the soap over the hole and eventually it will stop leaking. So there was a lot of soap on that tank. Problem was, we were going back North, and it had no heater. The car was bought in Key west, and the buyer so no need for the expensive ($150) heater so he did not order one. I had no idea how to install the heater. If you know the car, the heater in 1955 was under the passenger’s seat. So I never did get one installed. When we got to NC I sold it for $500. I still miss that car.
Thanks for reading the Log.
