Year: 1955 Make: Chevrolet Model: Bel Air 2 Door Hardtop Sport Coupe

Unique, custom fabricating, paint, and components

Love Tri 5's but they all look so similar, check this out! This 55 Chevy Coupe was found on an Indian Reservation in South Dakota, and was than purchased by a man in Nebraska who owned a vintage vehicle salvage yard. The car was than taken to Alabama to be sold for parts or restoration, but fortunately car was found buy its current owner and brought back to life in Pennsylvania. The car had little body damage, and only two small areas had rusted through. The paint, door, window regulators and latches where all original and had never been removed. Chassis had light rust, frame or suspension parts were slightly corroded, and chassis had original shock absorbers. The entire floor pan was intact except the center section of the trunk floor. All the body supports, reinforcement plates, inner and outer rocker panels and rear wheel housings where without rust. During that year the needed front end parts were located and the entire body was stripped to bare metal. The entire frame, all chassis, and suspension components were cleaned and coated with black POR15 coating. The body and front sheet metal was placed on the frame and delivered to the restoration shop for body work and paint. Seven months later the beautifully painted car returned to the owners garage. From there the next 18 months the car underwent assembly. When 90 percent done, it was taken to Ambassador House in Herman, PA for custom upholstery and carpet. This beautifully, professionally done car took just under four years to complete, including time away for other matters. (Approx 2001 completion)

When the engines were dyno'd for baseline horsepower they were equipped as recommended by GM with a four barrel carb and headers. The engines all based out at 310 horsepower or better. It has been stated that GM uses SAE standards when dyno testing. These standards tend to be conservative. This is why the engine is advertised at 290 horsepower.
