1955 Custom Chevy Bel-air chop top drag car, low 9's 1/4 mile This is a highly customized drag car (non-street legal) made with the best parts and set-up in a package to look really awesome at the track. I am the third owner of the car and have put all of the absolute best components in it without regard to price. With over $40,000 invested, 200+ man-hours of loving work by me, PLUS a new engine and tranny, this car is an absolute steal. If you have been thinking about a show-stopping classic drag car you won't find a better deal than this one. grab it before someone else does. It always draws a crowd in the pit and when it stages the crowd goes crazy! Kunzi custom graphics took a lot of time (about 120 hours) painting the base coats & lightning on this baby. It simply looks phenominal! The body is in almost perfect condition. The car drives fantastic too... It hooks super hard and goes straight . The car is super lightweight (2,450 lbs) Wheelstands about 1 foot high and carries it out 70 feet! Its easy to drive, and stops on a dime. No expense has been spared on safety. The car doesn't have any bad characteristics, is very strong, and is NHRA & IHRA certified to run 7.50 in 1/4 mile and will qualify for certification of 6.50 with the addition of a funny car roll cage. If you have ever wanted to have your dream drag car, this is your chance. You have the confidence of knowing that this car has been built by highly experienced professionals with extreme attention to detail and tuning, as well as a no-compromise attitude towards winning on race day.
