WHERE THE CARS ARE

1955 CHEVROLET 2-DOOR RESTO MOD

496 CI, AUTOMATIC, VINTAGE AIR CONDITIONING, ROADSTER SHOP CHASSIS

Because modern handling and performance are central goals of the Resto Mod recipe, every successful project begins with a quality frame, which is why the builder of this superb 1955 Chevrolet based the car on a custom chassis from the Roadster Shop, which has captured its position in the market with advances in design, engineering, and innovation. That includes the ability to take the power of this car’s 496 CI cast iron Merlin big block engine with Pro One cylinder heads, Accel EFI and Sanderson HPC

coated big tube shorty headers, which cranks its massive power through a Chevrolet 700R4 automatic to a 4.10 rear end. Finished in classic White on Red in DuPont two-stage base/ clear coat on all-original steel, the car rides on chromed Heidts independent front and rear suspension using Alston coilovers, Budnik billet aluminum wheels with Toyo radials and Wilwood disc brakes. A stock-appearing dash with tilting billet steering wheel and custom instrumentation sets a nostalgic tone inside, where occupants

can enjoy the exterior-matching Red and White upholstery, power windows and remote door locks and Vintage Air.
