1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible.
From the Bill Miller Collection.
This previous one owner car came from York, Pennsylvania.
During the race riots in 1960 the owner was driving through downtown York and was accosted by rioters who chased him with a large knife and swiped it at him. As he drove away the rioter scraped the top of the rear fender and this was the deciding factor to put the car away.
So this cherished car was stored until the owner’s serious illness and I had a chance to purchase it.
It is so original that many 1956 Chevrolet owners have looked it over so they could see how to perfectly restore their cars.
This car has many factory options that make it very unique.
The original factory convertible top still is in place.
Love original cars like I do then this car will be the highlight of your collection.
Every car has a story and this one is very special !
