1 Of 15 copper color 55 ever sold

I stored the original hub caps because I like the rare GM accessory wire wheels offered in 53 called "Motor Wheels" by GM. I also have the Original 1 of 5 ever commissioned by GM, a green tinted bubble top that may be the only one known to ex-site.

Very few 55s ever see the road again but we use our 55 and as you see we also pull a 1947 tear drop trailer when we travel, been to NY, FL, and around the country in our 55 twice in the last 10 years. It runs and drive great, isn't that what they're for? And yes we do sleep in it.

On one of our other trips

This was taken for a calender pic in our small local town, which now shows the after market Plasticon hard top I use in the winter time.

1280 car nuts gave this a thumbs-up. Do you? Thumbs-up

My hats off to you. and you car and your trailer and to my wife who I allowed to pose like this. Ok, I'm lying. I didn't allow her. Ok, she's not my wife, just my girlfriend. Ok we broke up back in grade school. OK she left me for another kid with a Schwinn Corvette Bike. Happy now???????

Having a nice collector car of any kind has it's advantage if you brake down , some women will stop and help you fix it , it was the best day I ever had braking down and having someone help me!

Did the car break down or you or did she?'a a rhetorical question. I'll make up my own answer and tell the story from my point of view...........that is one large tool in her hand.

I just spotted your 55 Copper color Vette, it's amazingly beautiful! I never knew they made Copper Vettes.

I grew up in the Fifties and have been to many car shows for over 20 years and never saw one. Great car and nice spread too! Thanks, Mario
