(Video) The car was on Jay Leno's Garage. Here's the video.

Pretty amazing build. The mods that were made to this car would not be spotted - even by a car guy. They are so well and tastefully done that you wouldn't notice them unless they were pointed out to you.

The car was for sale this year. Here's some of the stuff that was done to the car.

This 1955 Chevy 2 door sedan is all steel and is one radical ride all the way around. Power is supplied by a V12 730 CU all aluminum engine backed by a GM 4L80E overdrive automatic transmission with TCI electronic transmission controller pounding the pavement with 620 HP and 713 Ft torque..WHAT..thats just crazy!! So crazy, it was featured on Jay Lenos Garage. Roadster Shop frame, Heidts front suspension, triangulated 4 link rear suspension, power rack and pinion steering, Ford 9 inch with 3.73 gears with 31 spline axles, full tilt and removable front clip, 120 Amp alternator, custom one off headers, and ceramic coated 3 inch exhaust. 13 inch Wilwood disc brakes, 6 piston in front and 4 piston in rear with ABS electric brake-booster with aluminum master cylinder. Inside this beast find a Ciadella reproduction stock interior, removable dash with switches and controls deleted, Vintage Air, Classic Instruments cluster, Ididit tilt column, Lokar shifter, and Pioneer stereo with CD player. Body mods are the name of the game here too with the firewall moved back 12 inches in the center and 8 inches on the sides to accommodate the V12 engine, suicide doors with stock hinges and latches, and 3 inch mini tub. Way too much to list here. You gotta call to hear about all the good stuff, cause this is one ride gone rad in all the right ways. Call for pricing. For more information please visit our website at www.classiccarmarketing.net or call us at 619-972-7073. Please mention the vehicle you are inquiring about so we can respond promptly. Inspections are encouraged before any purchase, of any vehicle, anywhere.
