I can understand the confusion, but these are the times the car actually traveled.
Doc, when hit by the lightning traveled to 1/1/1885.
The car, while it was rediscovered in 1955 by Doc and Marty, traveled back to 9/2/1885. It never time traveled to 1955, it did it the old fashioned way - sitting buried in a cave for a ton of years.
Editing to add: The times should be read from the left, then down the row, then on the right, down the row again. At least that's how the math seems to work for the trilogy.
