1956 Chevrolet owned by Jesse Orozco of Salinas, California. Inspired by Lanny Ericson's 1956 Chevrolet, a Gene Winfield custom known as "Violet Fantasy," the car has been a 20-year work in progress. Pepe Heredia did chopped the top on the car, and did all the original bodywork years ago.[1]


In June of 2021 Jesse's brother-in-law, Ernie Enriquez, was working on the bodywork and primering. After Ernie had covered the body in House of Kolor white sealer, Greg Gonzales applied a cream base. He followed up with 4 coats of a Candy Pearl Pagan Gold, mixed from Pagan Gold, Spanish Gold Kandy, and Pearl. Erik Solorio finished off the paint job with some darker Candy accents late in July of 2021, giving it a Gene Winfield inspired fade paint job.[1]
