A small-block Chevy V-8 with a big induction system is the theme of this 1955 Chevy gasser. The engine is a 327-cu.in. version of indeterminate vintage. The obvious speed parts are the big Weiand 6-71 Roots-style supercharger that’s topped by a pair of Carter AFB four-barrel carburetors. The engine has a deep sump oil pan. The fenderwell exit exhaust headers are from Doug’s Headers. The Turbo Hydra-Matic 350 three-speed automatic transmission has a Hurst shifter and Hurst Line Loc. The 1955 body is a base-model 150, which is noted by its lack of side trim and rubber windshield/rear window gaskets that don’t have trim like 210 and Bel Air models have. It’s a perfect look for a stripped-down gasser. The one-piece tilt front end is made of fiberglass for weight savings and easy engine access. Candy blue flames accent the black paint. The seller doesn’t know when the car was painted, but asserts that the paint looks “very good” and has no blemishes. In keeping with the drag racing theme, the interior appears to be more business than pleasure. The twin aluminum racing bucket seats have black leather covers. The five-point racing harnesses are attached to the roll bar. The floor is covered with black carpet. The gauges are from Auto Meter, including the Monster Tach with a huge shift light. The oversize aluminum gas pedal is from Speedway Motors. The dashboard has a block-off plate where a radio originally resided. The blue Metalflake steering wheel goes seemingly well with the blue flames.
