Early 60's Hot Rodding: My Dad's 1955 Chevy

My Dad had this car first and then he sold it to his best friend David so he could get a 1958 Impala.

David sold it to the brother of one of their buddies girlfriend.  

The brother smashed it up not soon after.

It sat in a wrecking yard for some time on Harry Hines and my dad and David gave thought to buying it for parts but it vanished from the yard.

It was probably parted out for the motor, it was supposed to be a bit of a hot mill with a cam and such.

It is hard to tell from the pictures but the car was light blue.

Early 1960's hot rodding at its best...

Under construction: Check out the ride behind it!
