A 55 Year Old Classic With Fantastic Lines — The Performance is sedate!! Braking OK('ish) for a 55 year old car having the original drum brakes all round (just have to allow for extra stopping distance...). Build quality excellent...this car is still solid after all these years. Appearance speaks for itself!! The car is extremely fun to drive & you get plenty of thumbs up at the traffic lights/crossings...

55' Belair — Absolute joy to drive, I'm only 20, but of all the cars I've had, none compare to this machine. It's packing over 500 horse power in the 400 V8 we dropped in and with 5 speed and curb weight to spare it has no problem putting the rubber to the highway

Great Hot Rod — Great 55 Chevy, a true hot rod, and draws a lot of attention. I wish I had this car ten years ago. The car has my name on it, inside of it, and I will never sell it. Too much fun to drive.
