EXCEPTIONAL BUILD ALL AROUND! 350 V8, 700R4, PS, PWR FR DISCS, SUSPENSION, AC!!

If you want a 1955 Chevy that's merely a nice cruiser, we have plenty of those. But if you want one that can actually move like a modern muscle car and grab show trophies, well, then this stunning red 2-door hardtop is your best choice. Packing a strong-running small block, an overdrive transmission, and an awesome color combination, this is the Shoebox that will make you want to get out and drive!

Torch Red looks great, and when the bodywork is as laser-straight as this car's, then there's simply nothing better. The simplicity of the '55 Chevy's look was really its biggest selling feature, and today it remains a favorite among restorers and customizers for that very reason. This one looks trick while wearing all its original trim and given the incredible amounts of information available on these cars, there's just no excuse for not making it spectacular. As a result, the doors fit beautifully, the hood is centered between the fenders with even gaps all around, and the trim lines up neatly from panel to panel. The modern urethane paint has a depth and shine that adds to the hot-rod look and will remain this bright for years to come given only modest care. And after spending thousands of dollars on chrome, this car glitters like a show piece with all the factory jewelry intact, including 1-piece California bumpers.

The factory did a nice job on the interior, making it both practical and stylish, but this car takes it a step further with a two-tone setup that's both slick and traditional. The red and white upholstery definitely makes the statement you expect, but with pleated seating surfaces, this interior looks straight out of 1955 and remains supremely comfortable for long hauls. Factory gauges were fully restored and stuffed back into the restored instrument panel, but there's a comprehensive array of modern Auto Meter instruments hanging underneath. Ice cold A/C has been discreetly fitted under the dash, making this Chevy daily-driver comfortable and the original steering wheel was fully restored for an OEM look. Impressive, right? The original radio's slot was erased with a custom billet dash insert but there's an AM/FM/CD unit hidden out of sight, so you don't have to do without. The trunk is correctly detailed with a rubber mat and a bias-ply spare, with the battery tucked up on the package shelf in front, freeing up some space under the hood.

Under that hood you'll find a 350 cubic inch Chevy V8 with a long list of performance upgrades. Up top, there's a 4-barrel carb under a cool billet aluminum air cleaner, and almost everything else has been painted in that gorgeous Torch Red paint. Polished accessories with billet aluminum brackets add some flash, and with block-hugging headers and a custom dual exhaust system, it sounds wicked while belting out big power. It's backed by a slick-shifting 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission that makes it a superlative highway cruiser, and with power front disc brakes, adjustable air shocks in back, and a lowered suspension, it moves like a late-model Camaro, not a 60-year-old classic. The original rear end still does duty out back, and between the highway-friendly gears and overdrive transmission, this car is built for events like the Power Tour. Staggered Billet Specialties wheels are the biggest modification and they carry 225/40/18 front and 255/35/20 rear performance radials.

This is an exceptional car that nails every hot-button an enthusiast could want: big power, lots of creature comforts, capable suspension, and looks to make grown men weak in the knees. Call today!
