The Hound

Patiently waiting

15 Yrs. of ....waiting......

Last leg of the journey to the "salon"

Fast Forward ....2 years....



Almost Forgot.......

All of the wonderful "fit-ups"

Home made grill and shaved bumpers

Gittin them doors on to fit the mirrors

Got them doors ready with the racy mirrors and the painted trim....woo hoo !!


More Cars of the 1950s
More Chevy Coverage

1045 car nuts gave this a thumbs-up. Do you? Thumbs-up

Hi Bill, and Thank You for the complement!! (with me and this car's history I appreciate the encouragement) This car was purchaced in 78 for $500.00 and drove it away....(I'll post the book I'm writing later)...also, this is the 3rd and final attempt to "fix er up".....(still going to dig out older photos to post)....and over the past 33 years I have discovered there is a BIG difference between "painting" and "restoring" a vechicle.....hence the name "HOUND"
