Project Profile                      
55 Chevy Belair                  

Here's a great story of taking a classic American
car and recreating it to match the vision of its
owner. Our client wanted a one-of-a-kind street
rod from a 55 Belair that was both classic and
high-performance. We rebuilt every component
of the car from its 454 cu. in. small block to
customized suspension, brakes and interior.
Our client got a custom car that he enjoys driving
every day! Check out the specs:
