The June 2010 issue’s Queen B is the ’65 B of Marc Meccia. Here is his story:
Here are some photos of Bea. She’s a ’64 titled as a ’65 that I’ve had a little over 10 years. She was originally a Texas car. When I got her, she had virtually no rust but was painted an ugly metallic blue. A friend of mine did the body and paint, and I did the rest.
She has all new suspension bushings and springs, a header and freeflow exhaust, and basically everything else is stock except for the period console , steering wheel and wheels . She’s very reliable and I take down the top in the spring and it doesn’t go up until the winter. She’s garaged and covered in the winter but if the weather is good , we’ll go for a nice drive.
