A restomod means taking an iconic classic and giving it the best modern features. So this 1955 Chevrolet 150 absolutely earns its restomod status with upgraded like the fuel-injected V8, five-speed stick shift, sleek exterior, and comfy A/C interior.
The black paint has a sleek look that instantly gives the first impression of a car where there have been modern investments. But it's more than just the modern clearcoat paint that grabbing all your attention. They took the time to get this bodywork correct before even the first drop of black. That's important on a 150 model, because these have cleaner side than other Tri-Fives, so it uses that to its full advantage here. All the brightwork looks like it has been expertly maintained to make sure that the bumpers shine like mirrors, the grille surround is crisp, and the rocker trim almost looks like lake pipes. With the aggressive touches like the 17-inch Coys wheels, everyone knows they're in for something special.
The interior is tastefully upgraded to give you modern comfort without taking away from the overall vintage atmosphere. For example, you still have two rows of wide bench seats, but now they have insignia trim and plush pleating. The door panels are done to match, and the rest of the interior is done in gray and black to look like a thoughtful and coordinated total package. Even the trunk matches. It's the kind of car you want to share with family and friends, and so there are upgrades like cold-blowing R134a air conditioning to keep them all comfortable. But this restomod is very much a driver's machine. You have a smaller diameter steering wheel for a sporty feel, auxiliary gauges, a column-mounted tach, and have you counted the gear on the cool billet shifter yet?
The engine bay continues this car's overall clean look and well-done upgrades. There's plenty of shine from the polished valve covers, air topper, alternator, and more. But what you'll really love is the substance behind the style. This is a hardy 350 cubic-inch V8 that has been upgraded with performance pieces like an Edelbrock intake and headers. Plus, there's a modern MSD Atomic fuel-injection system that delivers both power and consistency. There's more signs of a thoughtful build with pieces like the aluminum radiator w/electric fan to help keep this restomod running cool even when you're in traffic. And the upgrade to a Tremec TKO500 five-speed manual means instant control of everything from performance downshifts to overdrive comfort. Add in power steering and power brakes with discs up front, and you can understand how this is a great anytime driving restomod.
It's awesome to have a Tri-Five Chevy that looks the good and already has all the best features. So you know you don't want to miss this deal. Call now!
