Up for sale we have a 1955 Chevy 150. In '55 Chevy made a bold statement and today this '55 is making an even bolder one. It's a fresh build with the body being set off the frame when it was built. This '55 has the old school look with the painted rims and dog dish hub caps, but when you look under the hood it's high tech with LS Power and a Six Speed Trans. In the paragraphs to follow we will give a brief description of the exterior, interior, and heartbeat of the Chevy, but first we would like to tell you a little about us.

We will start off with the exterior of the '55. When you look at the body you can the hours that was spent making this car better than when it was new. This being a 150 it didn't have a lot of Chrome and with a body this nice there is no need for it. Down the sides it's laser straight with very good gaps around the doors and trunk. Everything is covered in the Turquoise Paint that is accented by the new bumpers and grill. The paint shows very well with a deep shine and slick finish. The jams and in the trunk all look good. Also, it's set off by the tinted glass with all new seals and gaskets. As with a 150 it does not have stainless around the front and rear glass. The factory style steel wheel were painted to match and sport a set of small hub caps with the rear end being changed it allowed for a wider rim in the back.
Next, we will take a look at the interior of the 150. On the inside it's done to look stock with the bench seats with the factory looking dash and steering column. The seats and door panels are done in the Gray and Black 150 Style with the Black Carpet and a Gray Headliner. When you look at the dash it ah the old school Stewart Warner Oil and Volt Gauges along with a column mount Sun Tach. The instrument cluster was removed and updated to work with the LS Engine. This is a radio delete car as many of the 150's were. The AC vents have been added to the underside of the dash with the controls in the factory panel.
Finally, we will take a look at the heartbeat of the Chevy. Under the hood you are sure to love the statement this '55 makes. It has a LS2 Engine that's painted old school orange. The Vintage AC is mounted down low to keep a clean look. They did a nice job on the inner fenders and firewall. The Engine is mated to the Tremec 6 Speed and a 9" Ford Rear End. The shifter they used added to the old school look on the inside. The brakes were upgraded to Four Wheel Disc that are Power. Also, it has been upgraded with Power Rack and Pinon Steering. When you look at the bottom of this 150 all the floors are solid with some pans work being done. To work with the LS and Six Speed. They installed side motor mounts and a new trans cross member. Also it has a new fuel tank and lines with the electric fuel pump. This is a great car that you could driver every day or do well with at the shows.
