The 1955 Chevrolet Super BelAir Iced in House Of Kolor
Bob Mandell, Bob's Pro Fab and his two sons have built the ultimate Belair... in fact it's a SUPER Belair. Built to race, but painted to show the color and airbrush from Jeff Hoskins is absolutely stunning. You have to see this one to believe it, but look fast as it runs the track at over 250 mph. My name is Bob Mandell from Culleoka, Tennessee my shops called Bob's Pro Fab the Chassis Shop and this here is my 1955 Chevrolet that me and my two sons built. This was a dream car that we started off talking for many years about building a ‘55 cool looking race car body because there's not a whole lot of bodies out there for the ‘55 Chevy. So this is how it all started here and we started building a car we had a customer out of Boise, Ohio Tim Wallace is his name he's the guy that was the background that supported our build he wanted the first car of it so we started building a plug car we spent a whole year designing a plug car making all the cool alterations to the body and stuff and trying to make it as sleek as possible but still retain the ’55 Chevy look. We wanted a car to be arrow enough kind of fast enough be able to exceed 250 mile in a quarter-mile but also still retain it looks on the ‘55 that every body loves. All the body paint work we credit Jeff Hoskins out of Saint Louis, Missouri. We got with him to do all the bodywork paint work and we wanted to create the nostalgia look of the car with a two-tone paint job and we wanted to and all the factory moldings all the factory trim to try to retain that look so everybody that sees the car everybody walked up to the car knows exactly what the car is and how it's supposed to be as a Super BelAir as a BelAir but we call it the Super BelAir. Everybody is just a overwhelmed with the detail work I'll with all the air brush work most significant part in the car is the moldings as people walk up to the car we've had people ask if they could touch 'em and we're like no they are painted on because they physically think that they are real moldings, real emblems and its all credited to Jeff and his two guys at his shop. The House of Kolor is it came about because I am and love in orange a we love the sunset orange and we are trying to come up with either a cream or a white off white a silver we can on back and back and forth on it we credit Jeff he come up with the Volkswagen color on the roof the cream color 2013 Volkswagen but we took the pearl out of the orange and put it into the cream-color to give it that affect. We are real racers we are defiantly taking it to the track we will be testing in Bowling Green, Kentucky in two weeks our first race plans and go to PDR race first of April and run the top sportsmen event runner race their race series with that.
