About “The King”

Got it new had it for 4 years, Street racing sleeper and Legend in Van Neys Ca. in the early 70's

About “Fred”

I was at a softball tournament when I got a call from my dad and brother. They were at a car show and saw "my car." After several phone calls back and fourth, and the evil eye from my wife, I bought the car sight unseen. When I got home I found an all original 66 bel air wagon waiting for me. I was a little nervous at first, but after looking it over, I couldn't have been more pleased.

It is currently at my brother's shop getting some minor body work done and then repainted the same original blue color. We're still deciding on two tone or some kind of stripe/graphic.
