Close inspection of the exterior of this car will confirm that this is one of the nicest, black, sinister looking Chevy's on the market today. Originally built and individually owned here in Texas, this car has been a cherished, garaged, and street driven member of the family.
You may remember this beauty from our web site a few years ago. We sold it for the original builder and it remained here in Texas loved by it's new owner just as much. It has been extremely well taken care of. The current owner has decided it's time to move on to another. We are proud to have this black beauty back.
Weld Racing wheels wrapped with Hoosier Pro street radials help apply the power to the pavement.

The heart of this Chevrolet is a professionally balanced and blueprinted DART 427c.i. block. AFR 220 aluminum cylinder heads provide plenty of breathing room for the Weiand polished supercharger to force feed this engine.
Beautifully crafted Hooker Super competion headers expell gases through the custom exhaust system.
The firewall and inner fenders were completely disassembled and finished to show. This is a very well done car. Please look carefully through all of our detailed photographs. From the factory in 1955, our car was a meek 6 cylinder passenger 150 post, not anymore! This car is as far from your granny's grocery getter as you can get.
