General Information

This 1955 was born in Norwood, Ohio as a Model 150, 6 Cylinder, manual 3 speed transmission, Vacuum wipers, at a customer cost of $1,673.00.

There's not much left of the old bucket. She got an off-frame rebuild in 1994/95 in a small restoration shop in Jackson, Tennessee. She got a used 350CI engine with a moderate Cam, Edelbrock Manifold and Carburetor, Hooker headers, some chrome, a 700R4 Overdrive Transmission, a Nova Rear End, Power Steering, Power Brakes, and Air Conditioning.
This engine swallowed a valve in 2009 and a new 350CI GM Crate from Bale Chevrolet in Little Rock was installed. The Old Hooker headers were discarded and replaced with Rams Horn manifolds to make room for a new CPP-500 Power Steering box. A new High Torque Mini starter was added, along with a Corvette master cylinder and front disk brakes. New alternator and AC Compressor mounts were installed, with new AC hoses and a new AC Condenser. A new stainless exhaust with a crossover and new Flow Master mufflers was added in 2009.
The interior is a custom design with Chevy logos on the the door panels and rear seat. She sports Camaro buckets, a new digital instrument cluster/guages, new carpet and insulation, a new Sony CD stereo 4 speaker system system and a homebrew console.
She was given a new two-tone paint job in 2009 with a lot of new chrome. Definitely a cruiser. The Tachometer shows 1800 RPM at 60 MPH.
Way too much money invested !!!
