This sweet baby blue four-door ’55 Bel Air has been in the family since it was new. Lee Williams, at the age of 55, bought it new for $1,666 (the original bill of sale was in the trunk) from a dealer in Kilgore, Texas. Lee and his wife Mattie owned the car, but Lee was the only one to drive it. Mattie never learned to drive, but was happy to just go along for the ride. It is now in the hands of their grandson, Bill, who took 10 years restomodding the car in his grandparents honor. He installed a leather interior, 350, and an overdrive trans. Bill says he loves driving it around and showing off in his hometown of Pleasanton.
