Starting from the front of the car, notice the California one piece bumper, with its grill and bumper guards and wings. As we follow the car along the side, notice the optional stainless side molding, fender skirts, and it's rare and beautiful wire wheel covers. The paint on our 55 shows extremely well, with no chips or scratches. The car also boasts this beautiful continental kit which ads an additional $5000 to the list of optional accessories. These accessories cost far more today than they did in 1955. For example, the continental kit in 1955 would set you back $123. This rare colored 55 beauty has been in the hands of collectors for most of it's life, meticulously taken care of by each. the current owner has taken the car to an even higher level with many added items.
A few other extras include, door handle guards, gas tank filler guard, front fender guards, and dual spot lights. You will notice there is only one on the car at the time we took photos. The other one is being rechromed because the owner wanted it to be perfect. This riders side spotlight was reinstalled since our initial photo shoot. The engine compartment is close to perfect. Restored to be as original as it could be, it houses the original 265 ci small block V-8. This new valuable reproduction Delco battery was just installed. This was just installed, so please ignore the shots of the old battery that was in the car when originally photographed. You can see the optional windshield washer bottle and hoses. All parts are intact, but it is not currently operating.
The electric clock was an option and is also functioning. Two more options are the ultra rare original 1955 compass, not a reproduction, and the traffic light viewer. This item was helpful for viewing overhead traffic lights. You could look into the viewer and see the light above.
