    1955 Chevrolet 2 door post Gasser project. I have owned this car since 2011 and have been working on it over time.
    The body has been soda blasted and is in bare metal. I have sand blasted the underside and chassis, and painted the underside of the car with gray epoxy. The body has been mini tubbed in the rear and made to look factory. The body will accept 10 inch slick with no clearance issues. Floors have been replaced and the firewall was re-welded after being beat in for clearance at one time. It has steel doors and steel deck lid, but the front end is fiberglass to save weight.

    The chassis has been completely reworked with NASCAR truck trailing arms in the in the rear with AFCO drag shocks, and 1952 F100 from axle with a disc brake conversion and leaf springs. I welded tube cross members in the stock frame for torsional rigidity. The chassis has been clipped in the front, and made so that it looks like the factory had done it with both rossette welds and seam welds. The chassis has been boxed for the RCI fuel cell in the trunk. New tires and 15 x 6 rims on the front with older 8 inch slicks on the rear just to roll around on. The 9 inch rear axle has been narrowed and bridged for strength and has a detroit locker rear end with 3.50 gears
    The motor sits on an original Hurst motor mount and the headers have been ceramic coated. The engine is a GM Merc Marine motor that spun a main bearing. It has the rectangular port heads but no crank rods, or pistons. Brand new ZIG Magneto with cable tach drive. My plan was to stroke the motor to a 540ci and run the blower boost so it could run on pump gas. The 8-71 Hampton blower has all the pulleys and idler along with teflon tipped rotors. The transmission is just an empty case, so you can do the car as a 4 speed or automatic. I have the pedals to make it either clutch or automatic.

    I have a ton of additional parts including trim pieces, windshield and rear window, window risers, dash parts etc, etc. I can help with transportation guidance and will load it up for you when you get here. I will consider selling the car without the motor, or $8500 cash and a trade of something of value. The only straight across trade I would consider is for a early Toyota FJ40 Landcruiser. Call me if you have any questions. s-l1600.jpg s-l1600 (1).jpg s-l1600 (7).jpg 2017-07-01 22.24.54.jpg s-l1600 (2).jpg 2017-07-30 13.58.11.jpg s-l1600 (13).jpg s-l1600 (4).jpg s-l1600 (17).jpg s-l1600 (16).jpg s-l1600 (12).jpg 2017-07-01 22.25.09.jpg s-l1600 (3).jpg s-l1600 (18).jpg s-l1600 (20).jpg
