1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Sport Coupe

Owner: Bill & Helen Cook, Issaquah, WA

With the help of my friend Rex Ott I bought the 55 Bel Air in Sept. of 04. I had been looking for one for several years. It was the car I had in high school and I always wanted another one. It was a recent frame off restoration out of California, and was also an Oakland built car. I have spent the last several months restoring it to my taste. I have redone the paint and engine compartment along with the rear end, suspension and transmission. It is still a project in work.
