Having built my '57 Gasser 'The Candy Man', I still had a box to tick, and that was to own a '55, so I've bought myself this...
An old Custom Car magazine feature car from Dec '79.
I remember looking at the 'Street Sleeper' article when I was 20yrs old and just wanting to own that car!
Who would have thought that nearly 40yrs later that particular cars drop in my lap and for sale?
My previous '57 was a 150 2dr post car, and this time I've gone for the 210 2dr post again, I like that model as it befits the 'Street Racer' type image a touch better than a pillerless car, in my opinion.
I'm slowly going to try and turn it back to the car it was in '79, front bumper, slot mags, side trim etc, and somewhere on the trunk lid it will be called 'Street Sleeper', as a tribute to the cars history, but in the meantime I'm gonna drive the wheels off it and just enjoy myself!
