I acquired this 1956 Chevy in 1980,then kept it in sunny Florida ever since.
I conducted a 100% totalFrame-Off Restorationin 1991 (Resto-Mod type).

TheDRIVETRAINishigh performance muscle car-oriented yet car club cruise-able.
The engine is a GM Perf Parts crate motor HO 350 ci / 345 hp (i.e., thelegendary ZZZ

The ZZZ PN 10134338 has 4-boltmains, aluminum cylinder heads (like the L98 Corvette engine), a Z28 high-risedual-plane aluminum intake manifold, hypereutectic 9.8:1 pistons, forged steelcrank and rods, and a single-pattern 235-degree hydraulic camshaft with0.480-inch lift. The ZZZ is rated at 345 hp (with 650 CFM carb) right out ofthe crate.Adding a750-CFM carb and an Edelbrock Performer RPM Air Gap intake, and this enginemakes 370 hp with 410 ft-lb of torque. Adding the GM hydraulic roller Hot Camand this engine will produce 400 hp and on pump gas. Pretty cool.

The transmission is a Doug Nash / Richmond “STREET 5-SPEED”. (i.e., the 4 + 1)

Itis a “close ratio” in gears 1 - 4(3.27, 2.13, 1.57, 1.23), with 5thgearat 1:1. Itallows a lowerrear-end ratio of 3.08 and still have aclose ratio transmission capable ofaccelerating like a Muncie M21 with4.11 rear-end gears. The Street 5-Speed allowsenthusiasts to use a 3.08 rear-end in 5thgear for highwaycruising and still get the awesome close ratio 1 - 4 off the line accelerationof a M21/4.11 combo. This works great.

The rear-end is a 79 Camaro 10-bolt8.5” model.

Itis a restored “posi-traction” rear, with 3.08 gear that is an ideal match tothe above Doug Nash 5-speed. New wheel bearings, seals and complete new brakeparts.
