Summit Racing really came through. I ordered my parts 2 days ago and here they are at my doorstep today! I am pleased and impressed.
It took a while, but I finally found the steering wheel I wanted. A nice 3-spoke one with wooden grip and a Chevy bow tie on the horn button. I also got a mounting kit since the wheel wasn’t factory. Seat belts weren’t required in 1955 and most people that put them in today go with the lap belt. I opted for a 3-point safety belt. Hey, if I’m going to add safety features, might as well go with what makes me comfortable!
I also managed to finish one of the arm rests. It came out pretty nice if I say so myself.
After going to the DQ Cruise-in for weeks to look at other peoples rides, I finally got to take mine. There were a few guys very knowledgeable with the 1955 Bel Air and gave me some very good info and advice. Which was something I had been waiting to get for so long, since it’s hard to describe something you cannot see.
