1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Custom - LSA supercharged engine | Tremec six-speed manual transmission | Art Morrison chassis | Incredible custom design inside and out - Wilwood master cylinder, Wilwood disc brakes
The build was started with a frame-up restoration. An Art Morrison chassis replaced the old stock one and, sticking to the no-expense-spared build, everything else underneath was either replaced or restored. The body was restored on a rotisserie, then beautifully finished in a nostalgic Robin Egg Blue with white rear wings and roofing. With well-displayed chrome work throughout the exterior, the matching chrome Billet Specialties wheels only add to the iconic stance. Also adding to the looks and safety of the car, Wilwood disc brakes were used on all four corners of the build. At the heart of this beloved American icon build is a high-performance LSA supercharged engine which is mated to a smooth shifting Tremec six-speed manual transmission. The two components combine to create a thrilling ride wherever it is taken. The well-presented engine bay is accompanied by custom performance parts, like a Wilwood master cylinder that regulates the brake lines and system. The engine alone draws in the much-deserved attention at any show it is taken to. Completely redone by the experts at HIDE Originals, LLC in show-worthy brown leather, the no-expense-spared theme continues and is obvious to see throughout the interior. The inside features ultra-comfy custom seating with bucket seats in the front and bench seating in the back. A chrome Billet Specialties steering wheel and chrome dash housing unit match well with the brown stitched leather dash. A Vintage Air air-conditioning unit has been placed in the build for the ultimate creature comfort in a restomod build. A Kenwood radio and sound system can also be seen and heard in the cabin of the vehicle. This beautifully displayed modern-day American icon custom is just the right combination of great ingenuity, taste and performance. Freshly built, it is sure to make a huge impression on the person driving it, as well as all the people that will be admiring it.
