We first met Ricky Persaud in New York City when we shot his 1964 Impala convertible. Since that time, Ricky has sold his 1964 and is now the proud owner of this gorgeous 1956 Bel Air convertible.
He found this 1956 online and drove seven hours to go look at it. It was in excellent condition with the two-tone paintjob, 350 engine, and the interior kit you see here. He made the deal and brought it back home to Toronto. He had fellow club member Jeff Forgione lower it. Petey Andrade installed the stereo system while JM Upholstery stitched the trunk panels.
