Gas Mileage on an American Classic Car?

Hi guys,

After I sold my motorcycle I am thinking of buying an American Classic car year 1955-1959. I would like to get a Chevrolet or Chrysler. If posible with fishtails.
Just for my knowledge could you tell me what the approx. gas mileage on those cars is?

Thank you.

MAD

My restored 55 Chrys. New Yorker Hemi gets 12-15 at best on reg gas. Cars of that era unless a 6 cyl. Ply or Chevy, are usually in the 11-17mpg range in perfect running condition.

Oh, that is like an older Chevy Suburban. Not bad. Thought they run around 6-10 mpg.
