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.

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.
