1955 Chevrolet Bel Air shakedown

This remarkable 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air short-track oval racer was at the track-day with us at Snetterton 17th June 2020 as lockdown started to lift…

Steven Anderson, our new civil surveyor friend from Lincolnshire, gave his #55 Chevy Bel Air a shakedown alongside other V8 heavy metal at the track day. The perimeter Late Model chassis by Hitchcock was a regular racer on Mid West USA short tracks. More recently a 1955 American Chevy sports coupe shell has been put on. Power is from a small block Chevy, 383 6.6 litre with a single Holley, HGI distributor and Pertronics ECU.

Steven has completed the rebuild and is presently bringing it up to MSUK requirements before a red and white paint job and circuit racing with us.

Warm response from Bernie Chodosh… “Brilliant. Great to see his car on the track . When out , this will bring a lot of attention to our series.” Cheng Lim adds “Good work! I love a 55!”

What a treat. Well done and thank you Steven.
