Just joined site today. I've owned my 1955 Belair Hardtop for approx 5 years now. Bought it off Ebay, originally from Texas, with a 427BBC. Spent the next year going through the car - redid wiring, installed front disc brakes, upper and lower tubular a-arms, Heidts dropped spindles, new springs front and rear, etc. Last year installed 4.10 gears and a 3000 stall, but then spun the crank bearings! Removed that engine and installed a new Merlin 509 BBC which dynoed at 540hp. Now since last December, I've been doing the bodywork and changing the paint color, bought as twotone yellow and white, now going to Teal and white. Hopefully paint it next weekend.

Thanks for having me here! Jim

PS What did you do with the 427 , was it a tall beck truck or car block.
