1955 Chevy Gasser

Repeat Offender 1955 Chevy Gasser

I have owned this car for the past 20 years.  When I first acquired this gem, it was a street car, but my plan was to redesign it to be a gasser. Once I got under the hood and started the transformation process, I quickly realized that this Chevy had a passed life as a gasser. Now it was time to resurrect the old girl and pump 580 horse power into her heart. Besides the details listed in the spec sheet, we gave Offender an old school roll cage and her parachute is old school metal.

Accompanying me in this build were a few of my good ole’ boys. First I would like to thank Joe from Racemaster Speed, I couldn’t have done this without his help. The eye-catching lettering and old school striping was done by my buddy, Tony, from Tony’s Creations. The interior was done in house, by expert interior stitcher, Ronaldi Jargas.

If you like the interior that you see here, give a call to Sal’s Tops & Upholstery, or stop down and check out our sample work. We also specialize in headliners; vinyl tops; convertible tops, as well as hot rod and boat interiors, and motorcycle seats.
