This 1962 Chevrolet Bel Air bubble top Pro-Touring custom known as
"Showlow" has 12,000 man-hours invested into the build, with 65
miles since its completion. It took three years to build with 150
body modifications. The signature roof was lowered thanks to a
professional-level chop, and the basis for this build was a
1.625-inch tube chassis. The 409 W-head engine was professionally
bored and stroked to 482ci and features one-off Algon fuel
injection and show-quality chrome, and is mated to a Richmond
6-speed manual transmission and a Currie 4.10-ratio differential.
The low-slung completely tubular steel chassis features RideTech
air-ride suspension with Morrison spindles and A-arms, as well as a
Baer braking system. The set of one-off 19- and 20-inch Colorado
Custom wheels with Pirelli radial tires completes the build.
Extensive tin work was done on the body, and it sports a Maserati
Red and GT White finish paired with a custom leather interior with
uniquely faced custom gauges and custom glass work. This vehicle
has power windows, power steering, power brakes and air
conditioning. The effort in this build has resulted in multiple
awards, including a PPG Dream Car Pick, Mothers Shine Bronze Award
at SEMA, PPG Dream Car National Award and Top Fine Nine Award.
Additional accolades for "Showlow" include features in Hot Rod,
Super Chevy, Custom Rodder, American Muscle Cars, Jegs and Goodguys
