Does anyone know anything aabout this car. It's been on Ebay a few times and if I remember correctly it's met the reserve. I'm not trying to offend anyone (if the owner is on here),I'm just suprised it hasn't sold.

The car belongs to Dale Early who is president of the Greater Virginia Chapter of SDC. I know him and he is a good guy, but I am not familiar with the car.

Gary Hearn (guido) or Frank Drumheller (studelark) could probably tell you more about it.

I've seen this a couple times and bid on it each time... for some reason I dig the nose as well as the cobbled look of the 2 door sedans [8D] I've lost a little interest in this one since the seller seems to have slapped bondo over roof rust... still a cool car though.

I do not know much about the car except that it has been on e-bay at least 3 times. I believe the first winning bidder backed out on the deal, not sure what happened after that. If I recall, Dale's reserve was in the $2500 range in the past.

Frank Drumheller (studelark) and I made a visit to a fellow over Christmas who has a couple of '55's for sale (along with several beaters). He wants to sell the whole bunch together (good luck on that) and was asking a stiff $6K for the lot (there are quite a few NOS items included). I do have some pictures if anyone is interested.

As an aside, it was funny to hear the owner (who is an old hippy) refer to someone else as a hippy. Frank and I just looked at each other and smiled when we heard it.
