About

This is the car that started it all. When I was in High School, My dad gave it to me, and at first, I really didn't want it. It looked nothing like the way it does today, but eventually, I grew to love it and have had many adventures, and misadventures in it! If only it could talk (and I thank God sometimes that it can't!) my '55 and I have been through many races long and short, in the rain, in the heat, between state lines... you name it! I also have done a few unexpected 360's in it... anyway, enjoy!

Specs

Right now, I am running an Iroc 305 c.i engine, but I have since removed all the E.F.I and am now rebuilding a small block 400 for the update! I have all stainless hoses, and Edelbrock performer intake and exhaust, and when the new 400 goes in, I will go back to EFI...

Factory Options

This thing also has a Corvette suspension, lowered 2 inches in front and 4 inches in back to give it better handling at high speeds,

Mods

Topping off this bad to the bone '55 is a Grant steering wheel, custom leather upholstery, 17 inch Billet Specialty Wheels, Nodskog digital gauges, a hidden Stereo with USb connections, fat Sumitomo tires!
