    I found this at a Thrift store yesterday and spent part of today cleaning and adjusting. Now it runs so pretty. when I was a teen, we had a a two tone 1956 Chevy BelAir in the same colors, so couldn't resist it. I can't find much on this make or model----anyone know about it?

    I don't know anything about the machine, but she is a beauty. My dad use to have a 1957 Chevy Bel Air and it really reminds me of the car.

    Somebody should do some research and see if there is a connection between car and sewing machine. Would be very interesting.

    when I looked it up on the net, most of the sites referred me to the Chevy site.

    Very cool...I have a 1950's Pinnock (Aussie brand) - very similar styling and runs beautifully. Vintage machines Rock!

    Very pretty, I have not seen one like this. Remember the Chevy Bel Airs, I was 12 when the came out. Chevys are our favorite Cars/Trucks.
