American Graffiti 55 Chevrolet Falfa's 55 THE REAL DEAL!
This is how the car looks today. This is the 55 Chevy that was used in
both movies..... American Graffiti and Two Lane Blacktop.
It was torn apart in the eighties and had lots of changes done by order of
its new owner....... Was made to carry the whole family...... work done by
Gary Charnock of Elkridge. MD..... so we know the REAL DEAL from the day it
was bought to the way it looks today!!
Fortunately the car retains 90% of its original parts on the car or in
boxes etc...... Body, Frame, Front-End etc are original to the car as well.
