Bill Sharpe's 1955 Chevrolet
Named "Dracula," Bill's Chevrolet was mildly restyled. It was nosed, decked and shaved for handles. It featured a light Gray Metallic paint job with artsy scallops. It ran a white tuck and roll interrior, and it was lowered, with a foreward rake. Custom accessory included custom hubcaps and lakepipes. Power came from a 327 Chevrolet engine. Ed Roth painted the scallops on Bill's Chevrolet, and Bill's nephew Brad, remembers that Bill took Brad to meet Ed Roth at his shop in Maywood when he was 14 years old.
Later on Bill changed the color of the car to Dark Grey. He also added flag strips on it in multiple colors. He sold the car before he went into the Air Force.
