Thank you Ben. It's nice to see these old cars with no modifications, chrome wheels, metal-flake paint jobs, gaudy flames, etc... Just get in it and drive.

Looks like what so many 50s Chevies looked like during my 1970s kidhood.

fantastic find. It's a shame having all those dents on a cool cruiser like this but it still is great to see one on the streets.

Sure hope it didn't get towed away!

I saw it last week, so I don't think it was towed. It drives around too; I see it parked in different places. Based on the taillights, I'm guessing driving it isn't legal, though. Love the lighting in these shots; love how it matches the patina on the hood.

Now that is how a Chevy of that vintage should look, not a ZZ Top'd hotrod.

That's a creamy-white Bad Boy.

i love this post.

the whole idea of the opc blog, really, is the honesty and overlooked beauty of daily-driver workhorse vehicles, just used and maintained, never restored or preserved.

it's funny when you see some terrible old orphan crapbox like a renault that survives in spite of itself in a complete bubble of obliviousness, because some little old lady never drove it more than 8 miles a week for the past 30 years.

but to see an icon of collectibility like this in unpreserved, unrestored condition -- wow. we don't feature a lot of this stuff on the blog because, well, it just doesn't exist.

great find. and great photos.
