We are pleased to bring you an amazing tribute to one of California’s most famous 1950’s American Automobile called the Moonglow. The Moonglow was a 1954 Chevrolet Sport Coupe that was built in 1955 by Duane Steck, a young commercial artist and a Member of the southern California Renegades Car Club.
It was painted icebox white in 1955, silver metallic in 1958 and candy blue over silver pearl in 1959. From 1955 to 1960 Duane Steck restored the Moonglow four times. A few years ago Graeme Tait deceided to pay tribute to the moonglow by building an exact copy. The new Moonglow took 12 years to build, 6,000 man hours and plenty of cash.
