I was able to get this smoke and heat damaged car several years ago. I completely disassembled it and thoroughly cleaned it up as best I could.

Then I watched for a cheap doner red convertible and white hardtop. I was able to get both at very reasonable prices and soon had thes result.

 The windows and all trim along with the interior were beyond saving.

 Finished car sports small block and entire frame and interior from the convertible; the glass and roof from the white hardtop. 3 cars became one.

Posing with blue repaint, 496 of 2500, and Walmart '57 and '55 Chief car.

A great save resulting in a really good-looking 1960 Chevrolet.

Well done David. I have the red hardtop which I bought on the secondary market many years ago.
