”I was driving by a house in Melville New York and noticed the rear portion of a 1955 Chevy. I drove up the drive way and asked the man if it was for sale he said yes. After 3 hours of negotiating, I bought this 1955 Chevy Belair 6 cylinder with only 71,000 miles.”
The car has been sitting in the garage since 1978! This is my first 55 Chevy and I am really excited!
”PS I said 45 years in video because John said he bought car in 1976 although it was 1978. It sat 43 years.”
