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
