First up is Tony Meade from Australia who sent us these pics of his awesome ’57 150. Thanks, Tony.

Tony writes… “This is our 1957 150 Sedan running dual quads, 3 speed manual and 4.11 posi rear. Summer time now in Adelaide, South Australia so right in the middle of our cruising season. We use the car every week; photos snapped driving around town and a couple of photos of her dressed up as a Black Widow replica.

We love the car and use Danchuk for repairs, restoration and improvements.

Tony and Monica”.

Our first car this time is this beautiful ’55 sent in by John Jones.

John writes… “I have owned this same car since 1968. I bought it when I was a Jr in High School. I drove it and worked on it till 1974 when I took it apart to do a frame off rebuild. Things happened and I never worked on it again till 2015. I just moved it from house to house, garage to garage. When I retired in the fall of 2015, I bought a Rotisserie and took the body off the frame. It took me two and a half years to complete it, working on it almost every day. I learned how to do some of the things, by watching how to video’s from Danchuk. I did all the work myself, other than the bodywork and paint. The first picture is when I bought it in 1968, taken at my parents house. The second picture was taken at the Iconic Ogden High School in Ogden, Utah at my 50th Reunion in 2019.

Thanks for letting me participate
John Jones”.

We start this week with a ’56 sent in by Jim & Joyce Hoerling.
Jim writes… “Joyce & I started this project with a Morrison chassis combined with an LS3-480, Tremec 5 speed, and Strange 9 inch. Alyn Swedberg replaced panels, and Larry Foss finished the bodywork & paint. Vintage Air & Omega Gauges compliment the interior. We would like to thank all of people who made this car possible. In 1965 our friend Dave purchased a Black & White 1955 210 post. Thus began the madness that became our Tri-5 reality. Dave still owns the 55.
Thank You,
Jim & Joyce Hoerling”.

First up this week is this 1957 Chevy and owner shot from Jim Vratil…

Jim writes… “This was the first car I ever bought. I was 14 yrs. old. She was a Bel-Air 2-door hardtop and had a 283 motor with a converted 4-speed on the floor. I bought her from a neighbor for $600 and sold her 4 yrs. later for $800. I sure wish I could get her back. Oh the stories we could tell…”

Many times when a customer sends us pictures of his classic he only sends 1 (one). We can’t just run 1 pic so we save them until we have enough singles to put together into a post. This time we look at a bunch of different cars from a bunch of different people. But they do have one thing in common…they are Bad to the Bone Tri-Five Chevy’s.
