Big red American classic cars in Cuba

I am posting many recent photos of classic American cars in Cuba. Please feel free to leave comments if you know the make, model and year.

    Surely you have had someone respond by now and tell you that the vehicle pictured is a 1954 Chevrolet—or at least appears to be (as it could be a 1953 with a 1954 grille). Couldn’t tell the model without seeing the side view. Does not appear to be a Bel-Aire (hardtop). I do know that the folks in Cuba will often take pieces and parts from a large variety of sources in every effort to keep these relics of the past on the road. Some install Russian fork lift motors to replace the worn out original motors, others will fabricate completely new body panels using scrap pieces of sheet metal. They are VERY resourceful.

  2. Hello - Thanks for posting the beatiful pic of the 1954 Chevrolet from Cuba. I actually got a ride in such a car owned by a friend here in California. My own classic Mustang, pictured in my web page link had a transmission problem due to water that went into the housing when I drove though deep water while photographing a flood in 1973 in this area. The wedding was almost over with when we got to Solvang, but at least I got there.

    Did you see or hear about “Yank Tanks”, an award winning film about the old classic cars in Cuba? It detailed the lifes of the special mechanics that keep these cars on the road.
    Thanks for posting the picture….Larry Jamison
