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.
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.
1955 chevy pass at bremerton race way
so this is the first full pass on the car after working out 90 percent of the bugs, she ran 11.73 @114.5, she spun pretty bad out of the hole as you can see by the bucking it did on launch. i also only stalled it up to about 3,000 on a 4500 converter. but anyway she ran pretty clean and i should have her down in the 11.60 and a little more mph before seasons end. oh and sorry for the video footage. first time camera operator
