1953 Chevrolet Custom Gasser
With its decal covered body, tall stance, and hood scoop there is no way of checking out this custom and not picturing the nostalgia drags. This gasser has the total old school look and turns heads everywhere you take it. The body is coated in a nice Yellow paint with the front grill, headlight trim and taillight trim being painted to match. The front bumper has been removed but the rear is still in place and painted Silver. Most of the trim pieces have been removed except for around the front windshield and the rocker panels. All of the glass is in great shape with a nice tint. A kill switch was added to the car and is mounted in the rear by the 1954 style taillights. 15 inch American Racing Torque Thrust wheels are mounted under all four corners and are fitted with Wide White wall slicks in the rear.
The hood has been customized to expose the scoop air cleaner which really gives it a tough look. It was custom painted yellow to match the body and tops off the 355 c.i. small block motor well. The engine starts up well and has a great sound through the ceramic coated exhaust. The motor also features a custom yellow tunnel ram, yellow Edelbrock valve covers, and two four barrel Edelbrock carburetors. Keeping it always running cool is the Griffin aluminum cross flow radiator and mechanical fan. The rest of the drivetrain includes a Turbo 350 automatic transmission with 4000 stall converter and Ford 9" positraction rear end with 4.11 gears. Power four wheel disk brakes are in place and have no problem slowing the car to a stop.
The interior is all done in Black with a split bench style front seat. The rear seat has been removed. The dash has a mostly original look but a set of Sunpro white gauges were added below for the Oil/Amp/Temp gauges. A Faze tachometer with shift light was also mounted to the top of the dash. A Lokar shifter was added and is mounted through the floorboard. The trunk has not been upholstered but the metal is all in great shape and it houses the fuel cell and Optima battery.
This is one of those classics you check out and just know is going to be fun. You are going to have a tough time rolling down the road in this car without a big smile on your face.
