Papaw's '55 Chevy Hits Pavement For First Time in 40 Years

526K بازدید79

    This '55 Chevy holds a special place in our hearts at Street Racing Channel. We decided to ask my grandparents if they would let us put an engine in the car, as it's been sitting for 40 years, and hasn't been driven. To our surprise they told us we could! This car is the reason I race today, it's the reason my father got into racing. There is nothing in this world like driving around in a Black 55 Chevy with a big cam and header mufflers, with a 4 Speed. Hopefully we will be able to get the front end rebuilt soon and get it aligned, gear swap, and some new tires on the way. Eventually some fresh paint, and body work in time. It still drives amazingly well for being a 65 year old car on a lot of the original parts!

      I’m one of your newer subscribers (two months or so) this has been one of my favorites.

    4. Chris Nizer

      That Tri-Power setup was so cool, would've been great to see it used on the new motor but it's all good. I'm glad they were able to keep it in the family. Thanks for the video my friend, good stuff! 👍 👍

    5. Dan Dolen

      Bro I know how you feel. Really touched me when you hugged your dad. My dad gave me his 40chevy. He bought it when I was 5 years old. Now I am 55 and I have given it to my son. Great story

    6. Jordan Hewitt

      Man I wonder what that 55 has for a cam make model and an exhaust

    38. rsdunphyphotography com

      people ask me "how can you love a car" it's just a THING. I respond back that it is more than that, my car TALKS to me, she sends me her feelings. I have a deep emotional relationship to my CAR!. Your videos just show that emotion that you guys have to cars. Very professionally done, BRAVO ZULU, as we say in the Navy. Here is my love, a 2004 mercury marauder :) I know she is not a true "Rod", be she hauls ass!!! Barney ain't not gonna get me!
