1955 First Series Chevy Pickup

"Old Blue"

03 November 04

From Bowtie Max:

        Old Blue is a '55 First series Chevy pickup. I restored it to original about eight years ago. Last spring I decided to upgrade it to late model specs.

        It was a lot of hard work but worth every minute of it. On road test, got 18.5 mpg. running 65 to 70 mph @ 2050 to 2100 rpm. Passing gear (direct) awesome at this speed.
