1955 Chevrolet Panel Delivery Streetrod
Just like the Bel Air, the style of the 1955 Chevrolet 3100 Panel Delivery just begs to be turned into serious hot rod machines. But beyond the bold paint of this custom creation there are features like a performance V8, overdrive transmission, upgraded suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and a full custom A/C interior. Oh yeah, no expense was spared when they created this one. Getting attention has never been difficult for these truck/van delivery machines, but the full custom paint and body of this one gives it an attention-grabbing attitude that draws people in to see the full build. From a distance, you can recognize the investment on the two-tone magenta and blue. This van has a unique identity created by how the yellow pinstripe that separates these two color create its own body lines. But as you get closer, all of the custom work of this unique build really comes into focus. The front is color-matched, frenched, and adds clear headlights to give this a very modern appeal. Plus, they eliminated the front bumper to make sure you get even more attention on the billet grille. The hood has cool louvers that are continued on the well-integrated sun visor. Not only are the emblems shaved, but also the handles for the side doors and cargo bay. It makes this industrial-grade van looks like a truly sleek street machine. The aggressive feeling is furthered by the large torque thrust alloys. You can tell they spent a ton on the bodywork just by the little details have been integrated into the design - like the antenna mount and the slim LED taillights. In fact, there's so much detail work, we just don't have the room to list it all. Pop the remote door openers to reveal an interior that's more Corvette the pickup. The deeply bolstered leather bucket seats feel great, and everyone will love the bold red Gator skin-style inserts. Plus, with the B&M shifter, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and full AutoMeter gauge package, this is a real driver's machine. But more than just excite you, they took full advantage of this spacious van. That means up front you have luxuries like cold air conditioning, Dynamat under the carpeting, and a Pioneer AM/FM/CD/DVD stereo with a touchscreen satellite navigation interface. The stereo is utilized by the full custom cargo area that has custom side boxes to house the Kicker 10-speaker surround sound system. And because the center of the cargo area is still open, you can still utilize this panel van for everything from merchandise to tailgating. Put on your sunglasses before checking out the engine bay. We dare you to find another component here that could be polished Ã¢â‚¬â€œ even the inner fender walls shine! While the motor's appearance could win awards all on its own, there's substance behind this style. You're looking at one of the largest small blocks around, because this 406ci V8 outsizes many of the big blocks. More than just displacement, this has been fortified and enhanced with a large Holley 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor, Pro Comp high rise aluminum intake, roller rockers, MSD ignition, welded aluminum valve covers, a cross-flow aluminum radiator, and long tube headers. The full package is said to be rated around 550 hp, and the thunder of the side pipes lets everyone know this power superiority. This feeds a 700R4 four-speed transmission that has been beefed up with a stage III kit and 2,600 stall converter. That sends power to a strong Currie 9-inch rear with limited slip and 3.70 gears for terrific all-around performance. The front suspension is borrowed from a Camaro, and the rear end now rides on adjustable air bags. Plus, the modern grip of Riken Raptor ZR-rated tires, power steering, and Wilwood drilled & slotted four-wheel disc brakes means you are always in command. There's so much to go over on this one, that you'll need to call us for all the details. Of course, you already know that you probably won't find anything as unique or powerful as this ever aging. So don't let this opportunity slip away. Call now!
