“The Prospector” 1955 Chevy Project Barn Find Gold: Episode 1 Custom Paint Video

Going for the gold. Junkyard Life’s Ron Kidd finds his dream car, a 1955 Chevy in a barn. During his budget restoration, Kidd decided to pay homage to the gold 1955 Chevy that GM built to commemorate their 50 millionth vehicle. With his team of friends and a vision to recapture bygone glory days of the 1960s and 1970s, he goes “old school” on the black, 4-speed, shoebox Chevy. 
  Watch as he enlists artist Michael Swann to customize the hot rod with retro graphics. The timelapse portion of the video shows Swann at work painting “The Prospector,” lettering, and pinstriping the ’55 over a 2 hour period.
  Kidd’s gold ’55 will be sure to make a splash when it hits the scene. Stay tuned for more!
