Rick Drewry: Hi everybody.

Welcome back to project COVID 1953, our 1953 Chevy 150. Just to touch base with you guys and let you know where this car started from, it is not really important but, it is kind of nice to know what it actually came off the showroom floor as in 1953. So, it is decoded as a Chevrolet 150, a two-door sedan. So, it is a plain Jane base model 150, not a 210 or a Bel Air, but the 150. And the 150 was the only one that had the smaller back window, so it is a little bit of an oddball but not enough to worry about, and I actually kind of like that body style. The other thing we did was we checked out the data plate, and the color code for the car was 503, which is Horizon Blue. So, it started life as a blue car, and it is going to end at least as a blue car. After I am done with it, it will be a little bit of a different blue, but it is still going to be blue. Again, it’s not that important, but it is always nice to know anytime you can decode something, especially this old, knowing what you started with and then showing off what you ended with.

There is a lot more to come. So, stay tuned!
