1955 Chevy Wagon
70's Big Block Street Racer
This is a 1955 wagon I bought several years ago that had drum brakes and a small block in it. I wanted to build a '70s street racer like I wish I could have had back when I was a kid if I had had any money. Many of the parts I put on here are parts that I've had lying around from the 1980s, and many new parts I've bought. I drove it around for a while and wasn't happy with the car, so I pulled out the motor and transmission, rebuilt the rear end which is still the stock '55 Chevy rear end, put in 373 gears with PT unit, put 4-wheel discs on the car, and tubular A-frames with coil-overs. I had a good bit of big block stuff lying around so I built a big block, bought a new set of Sanderson headers that are made for these cars now. I had a set of cast iron, deep groove Corvette big block pulleys that I put on the car. It's got a Howard's Cam, a 700 R-4 transmission that I had completely rebuilt with all heavy-duty parts, 2200 stall with no lock-up because it's stronger. The motor and transmission have approximately 3500 miles on them. It's got vintage center line wheels; rears are 8½ inch, fronts are 7 inch. The car has no power steering or air conditioning, as that's something that you would never have had on a street racer -- that was just a waste of power. It has a brand new aluminum radiator and transmission cooler with new brake, fuel and transmission lines. I didn't skimp in any way. The paint is not the best in the world as it's been on there for about 4 years. Everything that was done was done as it should be {Right} no short cuts. It drives great and gets pretty decent gas mileage considering what it is. Fly in and drive it home.
