Two-Lane Blacktop '55 Chevy

Through the mufflers and on street tires, the documented, original, and surviving Two-Lane Blacktop '55 Chevy makes an exhibition pass at Tulsa International Raceway in 2009. This is not a clone, but the actual car used by James Taylor and Dennis Wilson to film scenes inside the Chevy for Two-Lane Blacktop. Sold by the studio not long after the movie was completed, it disappeared into private hands and obscurity until found in Canada, purchased by Walt Bailey, and restored to its original movie appearance by Walt Bailey and Richard Ruth. Ruth issued a certificate of authenticity on this car. The movie's director Monte Hellman enlisted it for use in the Criterion DVD release of Two-Lane Blacktop. James Taylor was reunited with the Chevy in 2009 and after looking the car over top to bottom remarked that it looked just like it did when he last drove it in 1970.
