    My 55 project

    I should have posted this long ago

    So here it is , A basic 55 chevy

    I have it since 1992

    Just started working on it

    It will be a simple build

    The frame is stock one

    Spring pockets have been installed to move springs even with frame rails

    Tubular A frames

    Side motor mounts

    Power steering

    Ford 9" Rear end with disc Brakes

    454 Big Block Chevy

    Muncie 4 speed

    I Don't Care that its not going to be a show car , don't care that it doesn't have vette front and vette rear End

    The way it going to be built makes me happy and that's all that matters

    Thanks Sid

    Sounds very familiar to how my 55 is put together, with some variations, I used a 56 inch wide, drum brake Dana 60 in rear. What width rear are you using.

    Solid looking '55 sedan and I love the patina... Make it fast but keep the patina!
