1955 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 Description

1955 Chevy Motor and ChassisBrand new with break-in time only- 650HP 496 Big Block Chevy with brand new GM squareport LS-6 high performance castings with all new Comp Cams springs, retainers, and keepers. Manley stainless Pro-Flo valves. The block has ARP main studs and ARP head bolts. It has a SCAT crankshaft, Eagle I-beam rods with ARP bolts, and Sealed Power forged and coated pistons with Hastings plasma moly file fit rings. It has a Lunati custom grind camshaft and Lunati lifters with Lunati pushrods and Lunati alumium roller rocker arms. It's topped off with a Weiand dual plane intake for nice street manners, but with a powerband extending all the way to 6800 RPM-the best of both worlds! It has a Fluidampr balancer and SFI flexplate with ARP flywheel bolts. It has brand new Billet Specialties black powdercoated valve covers and brand new black MSD plug wires. It's running an MSD distributor also. Might I add, she sounds REALLY NASTY through the brand new thermal coated headers, full 3" exhaust and single chamber 3" mufflers!The transmission and torque converter are both all new with idle time only and are high quality components as well. The transmission has all TCI internals, even their valve body with a reverse manual shift pattern and their deep pan. It also has a TCI Pro-X 3500 stall converter in it so it's still drivable on the street-much more stall than that and they become uncomfortable to drive. 3500 stall or so seems to be a sweet spot with these Big Block ground pounders. It's mounted on a brand new powdercoated transmission crossmember.The rearend is a brand new narrowed 9" Ford with a spool and brand new Richmond ring and pinion (4:10 I think?) with brand new Strange axles and all new bearings and seals. The driveshaft is new with new u-joints as well.The fuel system is all new with a Holley billet mechanical pump (cost big $$$$ and made for high HP), AN fittings, stainless braided lines, and aluminum fuel cell mounted to clear the trunk pan with a manual shut-off gate valve if needed---I think it's pretty well thought out in the event the fuel system ever needs serviced since it has a mechanical pump!The turnkey chassis is basically all new and has been plated or boxed in the weak areas in the rear with the full intention to apply the entire 650HP the 496 makes to the ground. A shock crossmember was added in the rear above the rearend housing. The chassis has tubular upper and lower A-arms out front and with brand new Wilwood brakes and 2" dropped spindles and powder coated lowering springs (Approx 3" lower in the front) The rear has lowering springs with all new polyurethane bushings and brand new matching Wilwood brakes as well (Approx 2" lower in the rear). The car will have a super tough, aggressive stance with the lowering and the really nice wheel and tire package that are on it! It has all new shocks front and rear as well.It has all brand new RaceStar Industries DragStar wheels- 18x5" wheels on the front with Mickey Thompson 28x6x18 Sportsman tires and 17x10" in the rear on brand new Mickey Thompson 315/35/17 drag radials-I'm sure the drag radials will be begging for mercy with that turned up Big Block Chevy heating them up!I'm sure there are things I'm forgetting as there's so much to detail in a description like this on an all brand new build-if I think of anything else, I will edit the ad as the auction moves along with the revised description.As you can see, there's not really been any corners cut so far and as far as I know, only high quality components used. Fuel cell not in pics, but included. *This build/project is being sold AS-IS/WHERE-IS with NO Warranty.
