We get a call a few weeks ago from Jimmy, a very nice man from Birmingham, AL. He had a very devastating story he shared with me. He's had a 56 Chevy 2 dr sedan that had been sitting on his property for a long time. He's had plans of restoring it little by little and now was the time to purchase seats. His 56 Chevy didn't have seats, at all, so he needed a front and rear replacement. He said that a few years ago, he gave the original bench seats from the car to a friend of his who had an upholstery business and was local. There was no rush on this project, so the upholsterer had no pressure to get anything done in a timely manner. Well, after having the original seats in his shop for over a year, he one day disappeared along with Jimmy's front and rear bench seats. The guy just took off!! Could you imagine. I mean, to be among the few in the world with such a cool classic car and then to have such an important part be stolen!
Cerullo was very fortunate to earn the trust of Jimmy and his wife to make their brand new replacement front and rear bench seats so that they could finally enjoy their special car. The photos are above and I have more upon request. I'm saddened for this couple that they had such a devious thing happen to them, but I'm also very thankful for this order and proud that we were chosen. I'm proud we get to be a part of the story for this car and we made a difference in the lives of these nice people. Thank you Jimmy for picking us. We hope you love your new seats and I hope you enjoy turning heads in your newly restored turquoise and white 56 Chevy with Alabaster and Pearl seats. Keep 'um clean!
