Every Chrysler Corporation car in 1955 had “Forward Look” styling. In Athens, W. Va., Joe Friedl was a high school student in those days and he remembers the three tone color combinations on some of the new Dodges.
After the passage of 55 years Friedl, now a Vienna, Va., resident, began looking for an antique car. “I wanted a 1950s car to fool around with,” he says. Any car he bought had to be in working order because, he explains, he did not want to buy a part time job restoring a car.
