Joe Flowers' 1956 Chevrolet
1956 Chevrolet Bel Air owned by Joe Flowers of Colombus, Ohio. The car was nosed, decked and shaved for door handles. Antennas were tunneled behind the headlights and a late Buick grille was installed up front. The engine compartment was fully upholstered and a lot of components were chrome plated. The side-trim was modified by installing a front piece trim to the rear quarter sections, which gave the car a longer and sleeker appearance. The rear end was restyled by molding in a 1955 Pontiac grille shelf, making the rear end rolled. Split bumper halves were made from front bumper sections from a 1955 Buick. 1956 Lincoln taillights were nicely frenched and hooded. The car was fit with a Parisian-type roof and chromed lakes pipes, housed in frenched sheath. The interior was fit with button-tuffed swivel seats, angora-like rugs, white safety belts, padded dash, white phone, customized panel knobs etc.
