Crafted between 2008 and 2010, this sable-toned, Gasser-inspired 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air thrums with the vigor of a 327ci V8 engine. The automobile is equipped with a robust Tremec five-speed manual gearbox, a J&S Gear limited-slip differential at the rear, and a gasser front axle from Speedway Motors. Enhancements include a protective roll bar, a Hurst Competition shifter, an aluminum heat exchanger, Moon-branded instrumentation, headers sheathed in ceramic, lustrous chrome 15-inch wheels, and Firestone cheater slicks designed for subtle traction. Accompanying this vintage speedster are accolades from auto shows, a racing helmet, and a pristine Texas title in the current custodian’s possession.

The chassis boasts a muted PPG black finish, with substantial modifications like a new floor pan and expanded rear wheel arches. Ornamentation includes a vented bonnet scoop, manually applied sponsor decals, silver-leaf embellishments advertising “Morrison Racing” on the doors, and decals from bygone drag racing events.

The vehicle sports chrome 15-inch rims, with Firestone Deluxe Champion tires at the fore and Dragster cheater slicks at the rear. Updates to its running gear include disc brakes at the front, a Speedway gasser axle, and traction bars at the rear.

Internally, the car saw a comprehensive reupholstery during its assembly. The passenger compartment and boot are newly carpeted, hosting an array of fittings such as a safety roll bar, a dashboard with pinstripe detailing, a Hurst Competition gear selector, a Kidd fire suppression unit, a nostalgic barefoot accelerator pedal, and a Grant steering wheel.

Atop the dashboard sits a Sun Super Tach, with additional Moon auxiliary gauges arrayed beneath. The five-digit odometer has been recalibrated post-rebuild, now registering roughly 240 miles.
