Check out these two cars sent to us by Dalton Carter. Thanks for sharing, Dalton. We really like both of these and what a difference…other ends of the spectrum one could say.
First up we have this ’55 that Dalton sent. Have a look.

Dalton Carter 55 – USA

Dalton writes… “This 55 Chevy Bel Air has been in the family for close to 50 years now. Three generations have turned wrenches on the car going back to my grandparents. The car has been our little “Project X” as its had all kinds of various motor and transmission combos. My grandparents are still around and a few years ago we did a full rotisserie restoration at home on the car. Everything was redone on the car and almost all of it was done at home. The current drivetrain combo is a 65 327ci small block that was built with a forged bottom end, camel hump heads, comp cam and topped with Offenhauser valve covers and a full polished and chromed tri-power setup. Transmission is a T-10 4 speed with early “spaghetti linkage” out of a 58 Chevy. Now with the car is fully restored it is ready for another 50 years and more generations of the family”.

Next up we have another beauty shared by Dalton. This ’56 custom called “Miss Taboo”. Check it out.

Dalton Carter 56 Custom – USA

Dalton writes… “This 56 Chevy 150 is named “Miss Taboo” and is a real deal early 60’s custom survivor my grandfather and I restored. The car was originally customized between 1958 and 1962 and showed heavily on the Pacific Northwest show circuit collecting trophies everywhere it went. It even landed on the cover of Rod & Custom magazine in 1960. The car went through a handful of owners through the 60s and 70s. My grandfather has actually owned the car twice. The first time was in the 1980, he did some minor restoration work and continued to show the car. He sold it in 1991 back to the original owner/builder. Flash forward to 2008 and we get the chance to buy it back and we do. It needed a complete restoration so we got to work putting the car back to its early 60s show glory keeping all the changes the car had at the time. Changes include 1957 Chrysler headlights, 1960 Chrysler tail lights,1954 Chevy grille with 14 extra teeth (19 total), 59 Chevy bumpers and roll pans front and rear, 56 Bel Air side trim with the opposite side on the quarter panels to make a loop, 1960 T Bird seats and console, 59 Impala roof scoop and more smaller mods. Motor is a 327 CI small block topped with polished Corvette valve covers and a Offenhauser 6×2 manifold with 6 Rochester 2GC carbs. Transmission is a Muncie 4 speed and it has the original rear end. Car is still all original drum brakes and was lowered the old way with cut coils and lowering blocks. My grandfather and I enjoyed restoring this piece of Oregon custom car history and getting it back on the show circuit where it once again has been racking up the trophies; just like it did in 1960″.
