It took me a while to realize how much more I like this car because it doesn't have a fat front bumper on it. Svelte-subtle-menacing.

I can just hear Duane Eddy's "Rebel Rouser" blaring out of it, hehe.

yes, the augmented bumperless profile is fabulous with the black steelies. but i still think this is an awesome pre-muscle coupe with just the right amount of design detail and chrome.

i shot a late seventies mercedes-benz the other day that i otherwise would have passed right by, except i found its bumperless profile absolutely irresistable. i wasn't going to post it, 'cause it's really just a poorly cared for unremarkable car, but this is a great tweak of tri-five classic.

It's almost a nod to 'Two Lane Blacktop'. Though I have to say I like this better than the matte primer grey '55 in the movie. This car features just enough detail chrome bits. I love it

This is actually a 2 door post sedan, not a hardtop.

the car pictured is a 1955 Chevrolet 210 not a belair you can tell by the trim.

The only thing I'd change is to put some dog dishes on it. The black steeliness are too much black for me. Maybe some white lettered tires as well. I looked at one of these for sale in my neighborhood years ago that was also missing the front bumper, and it also looked mean as hell.
