Hey Wayne welcome. Very nice 55. I'm kinda partial to those 55's myself.
Hi and welcome Wayne. Love the '55. I see you have 302 on the fenders. Is it truly a 302, bored 283 or a true 302? Either one makes for a really neat/fun motor. That is a great looking car. Give us some more info on it when you get a chance. I like the lettering, there but suttle. Great to have you on board. Mark L
I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to ask you to leave... your car is too nice and make the rest of us look bad. :)

Just kidding! Welcome to the site, Wayne. Wow, that is a clean car. Yeah, 301, 302 - what ever it takes! How quick is it? Any timeslips. Ii also see the correct number of pedals, 4sp or more?

Yes .010 block,large journal DZ crank and rods. 12.5 compression,Sig Erson 306-510 solid cam,Hooker fenderwell headers 461 double hump heads tunnellram w/holley 450's. Never been on the track. 4-SPEED and 4:56 gears.
I bet that thing sings!!! Always wanted to do a nice strong street build on a 302. I did build a 377, 3.48 350 crank in a 400 block. Kind of the big brother of the 302. My bro in law had a '68 Z with a built 302. I don't remember the ET anymore (that was 1969) but I remember the 110 trap speed because I thought he was lying to me. He used to run it up to 8500 regularly with 4:88s and 26 inch tires. Loved that Camaro. Are you running race fuel with that 12 to 1? Mid 1990s when I had the 377 I was at 10:1 and had to back off timing to keep from pinging. I think I had 186 heads. Can you get E85 easily. That would be a very worthwhile conversion for you. Mark L
Greaat looking '55 gasser! Very nicely finished!
Welcome sir ........ glad you've joined us .......... beautiful little '55 .......... very nice work :cool::cool:
VERY nice 55 you have there! Nothing like a screaming 292 or 301!! That puts the biggest grin on my face. Welcome.
