426 Hemi in a '55 Chevy! Roadkill Episode 8
On this episode of Roadkill, HOT ROD's David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan hit the road on a quest to build a car they've both dreamed of for years: a '55 Chevy Bel Air sedan set up like a '60s Gasser and powered by a Mopar 426 Hemi. The guys drag out a '73 GMC Suburban that they'd never driven more than around the block (did you expect anything else?), then use it to pick up a bare '55 Chevy body in California before heading north for the 1,000-mile trip to Lincoln City, Oregon. That's the home of Jim Meyer Racing, the chassis builder that helps the guys turn the '55 into a wicked looking hot rod in a single day. There's no fail in this episode of Roadkill! Well, at least nothing terminal.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend

CJ's Evil 55 Chevy Gasser
Primered, ugly, noisey fast and driven on the street all the time.
The duct tape on my right knee was needed to pass tech inspection, because of a small hole in my jeans. Thanks for watching.
