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.
I do not own the rights to this movie. This is for Fair use.

American Graffiti 55 Chevrolet Falfa's 55 THE REAL DEAL!
This is how the car looks today. This is the 55 Chevy that was used in both movies..... American Graffiti and Two Lane Blacktop.
It was torn apart in the eighties and had lots of changes done by order of its new owner....... Was made to carry the whole family...... work done by Gary Charnock of Elkridge. MD..... so we know the REAL DEAL from the day it was bought to the way it looks today!!
Fortunately the car retains 90% of its original parts on the car or in boxes etc...... Body, Frame, Front-End etc are original to the car as well. Restoration Talks Are Back On Again, So I Thought I'd Put This Video Back Up On Youtube for Graffiti Lovers to see.
Car is owned by Denny Moran and Wayne Newsome. The car is driven, shown and raced mainly by The Wolfman Baldoni & the Astros Car Club in Baltimore. This car will still pull down a quick quarter mile times and can often be seen banging gears around town! The car Lurches Forward Franticly At Each Shift, Its WIld Looking To See It Run and Skate all over the street!!!! Hooks Up Very Well On The Track!
Restoration talks are back on and plans to return the car back to its American Graffiti stature are back on the table again. KEWL!!!!
Ive turned the comments off on this video and are by approval only. Opinions are like assholes.
See Walt Baileys TWO LANE BLACKTOP Web Site for more info on this car and the other TWO LANE BLACKTOP 55 Chevy. Walt has a very impressive and vast collection of photos and info there for you to enjoy. Walt owns the 55 Chevy Camera Car from the movie TLB..........
The car has now been SOLD (Jan 2012) and heading west....Now it should get its restoration back to American Graffiti Movie appearance....... LONG LIVE THE GRAFFITI CAR AND ALL THE RACING SHES SEEN HERE IN MARYLAND!
1957 Chevrolet Bel-Air Convertible For Sale 206-533-9600
I always like to find cars like this. Like most classic car dealers, I used to buy cars at auction but you really never know what you're getting until you get them home. This '57 Chevy has been in the same family since 1984. It was sold at a McLeod Auction. I'm sure I was at this auction at the time it was sold...maybe even bid on it. As you can tell I got a lot of invoices and papers. Note, it was restored when it was sold in 1984 and I found where it was repainted in 2003. Matching color #795 Larkspur blue. The interior does not match. It is #679 which is lt. blue and dark blue but the interior is done in turquoise and white and looks great. Anyway I just got it and it will be a month or more before it's ready to sell. We always service and safety check all of our rigs and I want to do some detailing to make it really shine. 283 V-8 and I believe it's the original engine. It was a 2 barrel and it now has a 4 barrel original type carburetor. 4 speed. Power steering is rack and pinion and works great. It was sitting on a hoist when I got there so I got to see the underside. I did find a little rust but not much. I will go over it in fine detail in the video. I think you will be impressed in what you see. Built in Oakland Ca. I have been out driving the Bel-Air around for 2 days and it runs and drives great. I took it to Joe at Old School Garage for it's service and safety check. Does not need much. The heater works but was not getting air flow right and Joe fixed that. This is a convertible worth owning. Make sure you watch the video I go over it very well and you can see going down the freeway. Cond. # 2-.
