Description
55 Chevys are made for builds like this and if youve never seen "American Graffiti" or "Two Lane Blacktop"
you need to put them on your must-see movie list. The same 55 appeared in both of those movies and lit the
fuse for many to build one just like it. Gasser or Pro Street, its a blank canvas for freedom of expression and
the beautiful example we have here hits the nail on the head with a classic touch. Call Terry (952) 451-2104
with any questions you may .....
have. See the video https://youtube.com/watch?v=Z1X5zivzRiA.
INTRO/HISTORY:
The 55 210 Post is the drag racers choice known for its rigidity. This one is built for cruising whether you are
rumbling to the show or heading for the drag strip. No fancy dated graphics here, its done up in classic twotone traditional, but underneath beats the heart of a ground pounder capable of tattooing the pavement with
tire smoking abandon at will. All you need is a Supercharged Big Block, tubs big enough to fill up the rear
wheel wells with some extra-wide rubber, add a roll cage and youre good to go. Clean and clear title.
EXT:
- Two-tone Orange & Cream
- Weld alloy wheels on big & littles
- Mildly tubbed rear wheel wells
- Perfect stance and proportion
- Vintage Minnesota license plate
- Classic jet airplane hood ornament
- Fit and finish are very nice
INT:
- Racing seats w/ harnesses
- Roll cage w/ room for a back seat
- Power steering and power brakes
- B&M shifter
- Bel Air aluminum dash trim
- Jegs racing tachometer
- Under dash aftermarket gauges
ENGINE:
- 468 cubic inch Chevy Big Block V8
- Automatic transmission w/ B&M shifter
- Blower with two 4-barrel carbs
- Headers w/ side exit exhaust
- Aluminum radiator keeps it cool
- Wilwood disc brakes pull in the reigns
- 12-bolt Positraction rear end
CONDITION:
- $5k just spent on maintenance (see receipts)
- Paint & chrome look very nice
- Runs strong, idles with just the right amount of lope
- Engine compartment is well sorted
- No evidence of any rust issues
- All systems work as designed
- Safety checked and turn-key ready
CLOSING:
The whir of the blower and the thunder of a modified Big Block are worth the price of admission, but as a
bonus you get a head-turning piece of Americana in the form of a deceptively traditional appearing rolling art
form known as the 55 Chevy. Traditional at first glance until you notice the width of the rear tires and a
blower rising out of the hood. This is a special E-ticket ride and that "E" does not stand for electric, but rather
"Eclectic" which is what makes a Pro Street build thats done right so much fun. Experience this one today.
NOTES:
Our car is a 210 Post with some Bel Air flavor which is a great choice for this build.
VIN plate on the door jamb. It will read V, if it came with a V-8, then
A=150,B=210, and C=Bel Air. Followed by the model year 55

On ours: the Aluminum dash trim with Chevy bowties is from a Bel Air. 210s had the Chevrolet script on the speaker
grill like ours and Bel Airs had Bel Air script on the speaker grill in gold.
