55 Chevy 2dr station wagon. Great original condition. One owner AZ car. 123-1234
I had to check it out. Unrestored 55 Chevys cars are my favorite but I see very few now days. The car was located on the other side of the mountains that ring the city. This was near the Saguaro National Park in the middle of the desert. I couldn't believe it when I first saw the wagon sparkling the bright desert sun. I kicked the tires, looked for rust, drove it, looked for rust, negotiated a decent price, looked for rust, and then bought it. Needless to
say I couldn't find any body rot, unbelievable! The wagon had been owned by one family since new. It had been parked in a carport for the last 20 years. Other than non original wheels and tires everything was untouched. It showed it's age as the paint
was thin in many places. It was a 210 2 door wagon , a.k.a. Handyman wagon and had a standard 3 speed transmission and the trusty stovebolt six engine.
It was now noon and we had plane reservations early the next morning to return home. I quickly found a place to store the wagon and drove it back to town over a mountain pass. It drove fine for the 20 mile trip.
The wagon drove well and we had no problems.
Everything worked flawlessly though and we had no problems. We arrived back home to our humid heat , 95 degrees and 95% humidity.
I still hadn't decide how to fix my new classic. I am in the process of evaluating what needs restoring and how to do it. Take a detailed look at the Handyman.
