The fastharry.com American Graffiti 1955 Chevrolet Hot Rod Project Build is complete and we thought you would like to see pictures and video of this three year project . This 1955 545 HP Chevrolet American Graffiti Hot Rod has been a work in progress for over 3 years. Bob Falfa would have loved this car, John Milner would be runnin’, that’s for darn certain. Check out the next page for great pictures and videos.
For starters, this car is a ground up restoration that started with an original 32,000 mile car that had not been driven since 1962. It has been totally rebuilt, modified and improved from the frame up and is being powered by a 545 horsepower (at the dyno, 6200 RPM, 495 ft pounds of torque) small block 383 stroker Chevrolet motor. The motor was hand assembled using American parts (NO Chinese parts) from top manufacturers.
The body has over 2000 hours of labor in it and is as smooth as glass. The tolerances on the body parts are tighter than most production cars built today, every piece fits perfectly. All the trim pieces on the body have been restored to better than new condition.
Almost every piece on this car is either brand new, NOS, or has been upgraded to modern specs and when we say that, we mean it. Even the speedometer housing and parts have been refurbished, right down to new lenses for the indicators. The car has fully functioning heat, clock and gauges.
We have been getting questions about the wheel and tires. The rear springs were moved inboard and the rear tires and wheels that you see on the car are a shade over 10 inches wide.
