This '55 has an absolutely awesome look and stance that is sure to make you a hit at the next cruise or car show.
It is finished in Basecoat/ Clearcoat Black and House Of Kolors Lime Time Pearl that was laid on smooth and slick. Not only is the paint slick, but the body is straight and has had perfect changes to make it look sleek and mean. The hood and decklid were shaved to clean things up and a billet grille was added. The chrome looks good as well as all the trim and moldings. Everything was disassembled and the firewall and inner fenders were painted to match the car so that everything looks nice under the hood.
Speaking of under the hood, a ZZ4 Chevrolet Crate Engine is neatly tucked in place along with air conditioning, power steering and power brakes. For those of you not familiar with the ZZ4, it is GM Performance Parts aluminum-headed high performance small block with 355 horsepower and 405 ft-lbs of torque. It is stone reliable and comes with four bolt main, steel crank and hydraulic roller camshaft. This one had a couple of things done that should bump the power up some including MSD ignition, headers, etc. The exhaust sounds are unbelievable!!! All the accessories on the engine are Billet Specialties including valve covers and air cleaner. March brackets and pullys clean it up and keep the belts on track. Chrome alternator and polished overflow are a couple of upgrades you will see along with many others. The automatic transmission shifts flawlessly and a B&M shifter. The rear end is a nine inch Ford narrowed just enough for a little meat in the back. The transmission shifts perfectly and was rebuilt 2 years ago. To achieve this awesome stance, an air ride system was professionally installed. It uses only the best of products including Viaair, SMC and Air Ride Technologies. It works fast and rides just as intended. A set of Heidt's two inch drop spindles were installed up front along with disc brakes to slow that ZZ4 down. Wheels are Billet Specialties Rebels that are 18 X 8 up front and 20 X 10s in the rear with BFG Tires.
