Description

Lot #1325.1 - This 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air has been a 2-year ground-up, nut and bolt rotisserie restoration. Over 2,000 hours of labor invested. This car features a GM LS7 crate motor with dry sump oiling system, dyno-tuned at 490hp at the rear tires, Tremec TKO 600 5-speed manual transmission, hydraulic clutch, an Art Morisson Tri Five chassis, 9" Ford rear end with 3.73 gears and Strange axles. Wilwood 6-piston calipers with 14" cross-drilled rotors on front and 4-piston 13" cross-drilled rotors on the rear. QA1 adjustable coilovers, power rack & pinion steering, Rock Valley stainless gas tank with high volume fuel pump, Jet Hot SP headers, 2 1/2" stainless exhaust with Dynomax mufflers and QTP electric exhaust cutouts. The body was blasted to bare metal, all metal work done correctly, mini wheel tubs added, recessed firewall added, car was primed and blocked, sealed, based and cleared using DuPont products, Hot Hues Blue, Boyd Coddington Magneto wheels - 17" front, 18" rear and BFGoodrich TA KD's all around. Most of the stainless trim is original and polished. The engine compartment was done using extreme care as not to see any wiring or dry sump oiling tank. Mike Lavallee at Killer Paint did flame work on the valve covers. Inside features a one-of-a-kind custom dash, Vintage air, white ultra-leather throughout, TV, backup camera, Dynomat and Dynomat Extreme, Kenwood stereo, JL Audio amps, speakers and W6 subwoofer and Viper alarm. The car is super fast and handles like it is on rails. Build cost is north of $200,000 to reproduce to this level. Buyer will receive dyno sheet, all of the receipts, restoration pictures from start to finish and a really cool car.
