It's not every day that you find three '55 Chevy projects for sale on your local Craigslist -- in this case in Baltimore. This first one is going for $3,800 firm and is "not for beginners," the seller says.
It's a 2-door sedan with most of the glass and chrome needed to finish. You'll have to provide your own engine and transmission -- and floors, rockers and trunk. Not for beginners, indeed, though it seems like a good price for someone with some hot rod skills.
The second '55 looks much worse for wear, but clocks in at a cheaper $2,200. It's a stalled pro street project with a Camaro subframe and a Ford 9-inch. No mention of engine or trans and seller says this one also isn't "a beginner father/son project." Since we're not much into pro street (even perfect examples are kind of silly) this one is almost as appealing as a Ford Maverick.
The final (and seeming the best) local '55 Chevy will set you back a bit more at $12,500, but it would probably be money better spent -- beginner or no. It's a 210 with a California title that's been stored for many years. Seller says the original floors are mostly good, except for a small hole at the rear. "As close to rust free as you will find," he says. And by the looks of it he's probably right. No engine or trans. And no word on an interior either. But this one's the winner in our book -- especially if the owner can drop the price by a couple thousand.
