Fuel Injected Ram Jet Restomod with Outstanding Build Quality
An American icon, this rotisserie-built restomod combines the classic lines and style of the 1955 Bel Air with modern reliability, comfort and style. Built on a completely restored late '70's Impala frame and coil spring suspension, this car drives like new. It's the perfect combination of tight, smooth, quiet, agile and luxurious.
Attention to detail abounds throughout. Fit, finish and component quality are evident everywhere you look. From the polished March Belt Drive in the engine compartment, to the quality leather interior, to the upholstery-finished trunk… no detail was overlooked.
This beauty is motivated by an electronic fuel-injected 350ci Ram Jet V8, direct from GM Performance Parts. Power from its modern engine is delivered through a 700R4 automatic overdrive transmission, providing both economy and cruising comfort. Dual electric fans work with a Griffin aluminum radiator to keep things cool, while exhaust gases are released through Sanderson headers and dual turbo exhaust.
The laser-straight body of this 210 Sedan is finished in a beautiful pure red basecoat/clearcoat. The exterior trim from a Bel Air was painstakingly straightened and polished to a high luster before installation. All chrome was treated to a show-quality finish, with new glass throughout. Classic chrome America Racing Torq Thrust wheels are shod with BF Goodrich Radial TA's for that classic look.
But the interior is where the driving experience all comes together. After extensive insulation and sound deadening, beautifully tailored top grain leather in taupe was used to cover the seating surfaces. An IDIT tilt steering column topped by a custom, small-diameter vintage steering wheel provides improved driver position and control. Driver feedback is handled through white-faced custom gauges from Classic Instruments. Vintage Air climate control, power windows and power door locks complete the luxury drive.
If you appreciate the classic, simple beauty of the 1955 Chevrolet but prefer a more modern driving experience, this '55 is the one to see! For more information on this beauty, please call 901-309-8899.
