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.

1955 Chevy 3100 truck - 4x4 400ci 8 dual quads
A 1955 chevy truck in great condition. No dents, no rust, not even a chip
in the paint. 6000 miles on engine/trans. New wood in the bed. All
electrical parts function. New tilt steering column. All wheel drive with
high/low range shifter. Power brakes, power steering. Drives great, not
even squirrely at turnpike speeds.
Drove it 820.6 miles the first day with 0 issues. The truck gets a crazy
amount of attention. Every time I stop for gas I wind up talking to and
getting my picture taken by at least 5 people... lol
The Blower Truck
This truck is a twenty two year old hotrod. That is correct blown for 22
years. It was parked for 7 years until this video was born.
Art Morrison 1955 Chevy Bel Air - Faster Than a Ferrari?
The Smoking Tire hits Supercar Sunday and the canyons with the Art Morrison
1955 Bel Air, one of the best handling hot rods around. We toss this 55
year-old car through some of the tightest curves in California to find out
if there really is such a thing as a Hot Rod for drivers.
