The 1955 Chevrolet Hot Rod Build Part # 1
Starts out with a good solid 4door with zero rust ,this happens to be a low milage car
from Bakersfield California we chose for the donor car .
Once in a while a good candidate will show up they are getting few and far in-between
This gives you a clear picture
How one can convert a 1955 4 door car into a 2 door
My choice is to buy 2 new full 2-door quarter panels and 2 New full doors for a 2 door and go with all new sheetmetal it adds about 2000$ to the project cost but gives for a much better job .
It doesn’t get any better than this ! Art Morison takes us out of the 50s and directly into the new age with his custom built chassis.
set up to grip the road and set the power of 550hp to the street.
Here is a good look at the custom 4 link suspension . Chevrolet built a very hefty frame from the factory but originally set up with a lumbering leaf spring with any kind of real horsepower ..Parts were breaking rear end housings were twisting .. and fun was over real fast !
This gives you a clear picture of where we are going with this build we borrowed this shot from our fellow friends from hot Rod until we dig into to The 1955 Chevrolet Hot Rod Build
