Description

Lot #1343 - The Wicked Double Nickel. A professionally restored 1955 custom Pro-Street Bel Air sedan. The laser-straight body is finished in a PPG custom mixed bright yellow and stone white. It features a custom Art Morrison chassis with big Wilwood brakes, power rack and pinion steering and a 4-link rear suspension. This hot rod is power by a 489cid big block dyno tested at 596hp and 625ft/lbs of torque, and professionally built by Kentucky Speed and Performance. Putting the power to massive Mickey Thompson's on 20x15 Billet Specialties wheels is an Art Morrison 9" rear end. The transmission is a TCI 400 Turbo automatic with a TCI stall converter. Cooling this beast is complete billet core support and coolers from PRC. The fuel tank is a polished stainless steel from Rock Valley. The one-off custom interior features bucket seats and console and is finished in bone leather. The interior also sports Autometer gauges and a TCI shifter. The no-expense-spared restoration was completed with only the best components available.
