A Chevrolet street rod can encompass a lot of different things, so for somebody who wants a sense of passion with power to back it up, this classic could be the answer. After all, 1955 was the very first year of the Tri-Five legacy, and 454 CI was Chevy’s largest factory engine during the following supercar era. 


This gorgeous 150 Custom’s changes are the result of a four-year custom build completed in 2012. With an emphasis on show quality appearance, the 454 CI V-8 Chevy big-block engine now features a polished intake manifold, valve covers and custom air cleaner. There are quality headers feeding into a dual exhaust system to let it breathe freely, with the engine itself tucked down into a beautifully redone engine bay with a smoothed firewall, custom radiator cover and billet hood hinges. Behind this is a 4-speed manual transmission, and this car’s refreshing also included power steering and Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes with polished surfacing visible behind the wheels. The smooth factory exterior shape was left unmodified, with the sheet metal refinished in a carefully selected rich red and black two-tone scheme. That sense of quality continues inside with the customized red leather interior. 


In addition to black trim-accented bucket seats and door panels, there are custom Dolphin gauges within the factory bezel, Vintage Air, a Hurst short-throw shifter with white ball knob, custom trans tunnel, factory-type in-dash clock, billet-type foot pedals and remote doors and gas door functionality. Further details on the exterior are shaved door handles and extra trim removal, chrome front midbody side spear, rear body chrome color separation, round polished exhaust exits, modern large-diameter Billet Specialties wheels and Nitto Extreme tires. Taken together, this is a package that will elicit a sense of respect for its craftsmanship and give the owner a sense of pride to show it off; and, with 454 CI under the hood, it might be fun later on Saturday night as well.
