1955 Chevrolet Bel Air
Combining a dose of resto-mod attitude with one of the best Chevrolet designs ever produced, this gray and silver 1955 Bel Air custom is a cruiser. Best of all, you can have all of its traditional ‘tri-five’ Chevy personality and upgraded mechanicals.
This Bel Air custom is a no-compromises build which combines everything great about classic Chevy design with modern technology. The car’s transformation began at Chassis Made Xtreme in Summerville, South Carolina where it underwent a complete frame-off restoration; and finished at Taylor’s Rod and Custom in Lumberton, North Carolina. Killer combination of Charcoal Gray and Bright Silver urethane, which comes complete with a glossy clearcoat shell, to create the cool two-tone exterior.
Take a peek under this Bel Air’s smooth silver hood and you’ll find a GM Performance Parts Fast Burn 385 crate motor which has a Holley Terminator Fuel Injection system. Straight from GM, this killer package combines a ZZ4 short block and mid camshaft with a forged steel crank, forged powdered connecting rods, aluminum pistons and aluminum fast burn cylinder heads to turn a stout 9.6 to compression ratio into an even 385 horsepower and 385 lb./ft. of unmatched throttle response. Stopping by SSBC Performance brakes, 3 piston aluminum calipers and slotted rotors. Also cooled with polished aluminum radiator and core support with dual fans.
