For sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our St. Louis showroom is a 1955 Chevy Bel Air Gasser. This yellow bullet is ready for the Nostalgia Drags, car shows or to just cruise the streets and intimidate anyone within a block radius. This mean Bel Air sports a giant small block that has 406 cubic inches of thumping power. Keeping it authentic is a manual shifting Muncie 4-speed and back to a 10 bolt rear end with 3.73 rear gears. The 3.73s make for great fun around town or at the drag strip, yet still friendly enough to hit the highway. This Bel Air was indeed a real drag racer for many years and recently woken up to go back to the street scene. There is still the great gasser look with a higher ride height, no front bumper, headers dumping out behind the front tires with baffles, street cheater slicks and skinnies up front. The rear wheels measure 15x10 and 15x4 for the fronts. The staggered and different style wheels are period correct for a gasser, as is the paint scheme with some sponsor decals. Inside is also race car themed and includes a frame mounted roll bar, no back seats, two buckets up front with a 4 point harness for the driver, no carpet, headliner or door glass. Needless to say, this one has gone on a diet. Reducing your car's weight is free horsepower. Speaking of horsepower, this one is estimated to produce 475 HP. The 406 has an ARP stud kit, dual 500cfm carburetors, roller rockers, 882 heads with 2.02 valves, Scat crankshaft with H beam rods and 11.5:1 pistons. Both the engine and transmission were professionally rebuilt and have roughly 300 miles on them.
