This 55 Chevy comes with several documents including the GMAC Time Payment Plan “Sale Contract” dated October 20, 1955 from Chester Morris Chevrolet in Denton, Texas to James Beckner of Denton, Texas. This original contract shows that the car was purchased for $2,671.45 with a balance of $1,929.50 financed and 30 monthly payments of $75.10. The car was paid off in 1958 as was evidenced in a GMAC letter dated May 12, 1958. (Copy of loan payoff letter is included.)

The first owner (James Beckner) kept this car for just under 30 years as was reflected in the Texas “Certificate of Title” showing the transfer of the car from James Beckner to Kenneth Donald of Arlington, Texas on May 11, 1985. (Original Texas title document is included.)

On June 23, 1987 Frank Ince of Des Moines, Iowa was issued a Iowa “Certifiacte of Title” showing the previous owner to be George Woolfus of Atlanta, Georgia. The title also shows that the next owner of the car to be Randy Swanson of Port Byron, Illinois purchasing the car from Platinum Motors on January 26, 2005 reflecting only 37,579 actual miles. (Copies of both the Iowa and Illinois titles are included.)

The car became part of the large Goat Hill Auto Collection of Southern California in 2007. The Illinois “Certificate of Title” shows the transfer from Randell Swanson on April 15, 2007.

Also included with the car is an original Chevrolet magazine advertisement featuring a yellow with white Bel Air with the green interior.
