HALF RIGHT ON '55 CHEVY E-ROD

Somebody actually reads this blog! Richard Smith sent in a correction to my blog on the E-Rod ’55 Chevy and I should have known this, because my first car was a ’55 Chevy 210 Del rey. But that was long ago and far away. Smith wrote: “Actually, the E-Rod ’55 Chevy 210 does have Bel Air chrome moldings installed on the quarter panels and doors. The Bel Air spear moldings are dished out and painted in the center, while 210 spear moldings are narrower, all chrome and with no dished out area. Originally all ’55 Bel Airs had off-white paint in the side spear. This GM-built custom car has blue paint in the area that normally is white.
