She's a 1955 Pontiac Star Chief. Pretty much original with under 81,000 miles, believed to be original. Runs and drives like a new car. Purrs like a kitten. Fuzzy dice came with it to me.
1955 Chevy 210 Chevy
I remember taken a ride with my dad an brother when I was eight years old in the car.
An I always said I would have one of my own, now I own this 1955 chevy , that just turn 58,000 org miles.., had to put the SS cragars to give it the old school look an a dog name Elvis, you cant go wrong.
My 1954 Olds Super 88 Holiday (my first classic). Stumbled on this 7 years ago, being offered at an auction within walking distance from my house. Mostly original, with 80K miles. Still have it (along with some other fun cars, now....LOL).
Colors: Glade Green over Maize Cream (rather eye-catching, IMHO).
I was JUST LOOKING on Hemmings in Dec of 2018. And this popped up. I looked everyday for a week and somewhat timidly clicked the Contact Seller button. No regrets. I've nicknamed her Showgirl because she was shown several times - even in the Grand National Roadster Show. I nearly backed out when it hit just how nice the car is because I only want a car that I can drive. And drive her I do. No regrets. She's a California Girl now living in Iowa.
This is ClydeSDale, my 1984 Ford F250HD XLT pickup truck. Brown and beige with white "feet" it became my work horse. I met Clyde in 1996 when I got an 11'3" slide-in camper and needed a truck to haul it. They seemed to use a lot of "cast iron" in the construction of that huge camper but Clyde handled it so well I only had to raise the back ~1 1/2" to level the rig on a good pad.
Built not far from where I live at the St. Paul Ford Plant 10/83 it had 38,500 miles on it in the spring of 1996 when I bought it from a guy who had only recently bought it from a horse farm as a daily driver but couldn't afford to "feed it". From the factory it came with the 460 V8, the C6 automatic and a set of 3.54 gears. It also had dual tanks (38+ gallons), the big receiver hitch, a HD suspension with both the camper special and trailer towing packages, originally set up to tow horse trailers.
The slide-in was soon replaced with two different fifth wheels, the last one was this 26.5RL Hitchhiker that weighed in at 10,000# rolling. We were doing every other year trips cross country to southern Colorado then up into the mountains west of Trinidad. Sometimes running in triple digit temperatures I added coolant and transmission temp gauges, ducted cold air intake, replaced the TT radiator with a super cooling 4 core unit, added a second transmission cooler in series and ran all synthetic fluids. The 7.5L 460 with the stock 2 1/2" single exhaust generated so much heat it would boil the fuel in the front tank which runs parallel on the other side of the driveshaft. The 3" system with a huge low restriction muffler solved that problem. With this camper's extra weight came a change over to a set of 4.10LS gears. The wind deflector was supposed to help with mileage (6-7 1/2 towing on a good day) but helped the most with stability, especially running in crosswinds across the high plains.
Over the years I've also added a tilt-wheel with cruise control, the in-dash tach cluster and a bunch of other stuff including a tuned quad set of horns that sound like a railroad switcher. It's now approaching 88,000 miles and with the sale of the fifth-wheel will be needing a new home one of these days.
I bought this 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 XL 4-door hardtop in March of 1977 from the original owner's family in PA. It has the factory installed 390 and 4-speed. The car is unrestored and currently resides in WI. 12,596 XL 4-doors were produced in 1963.
