1955 Chevrolet Del Ray Sedan Hotrod

This one is pure fun and a fabulous throw back to a classic looking Hot Rod. From the two door sedan look to the Yellow Flames on the hood to the rolled front pan this Chevy takes you back to the days of the original Gassers built from grandma's old basic driver. When luxury was a waste of time and money on a “grocery getter”. This great 'Ol Tri Five Chevy is a California built unit with no extras, it is a radio and heater delete car with the Del Ray interior trim that looks like ceramic tile from the bathroom, albeit in great shape. There is a great story on this car the previous owner first bought it 31 years ago played with it, sold it, and regretted it instantly. Then about 3 years later he went back to the person he sold it to and had to have it back. Upon getting the car back he detuned it somewhat into a more drivable car and he refinished the exterior with what we are happy to look at today. This is a solid and fun to drive Chevy with manners but also enough attitude to make it fun.
