Violent 1,000 Horsepower Custom Built ’55 Chevy

55 chevy pro touring build

The team at Metal Works Speed Shop started with what you see on the photo above, and transformed it into one violent pro touring ’55 Chevy. As you’ll see there is no expense spared and the attention to detail is great, but most importantly, this Blacked out Tri-Five is not built just for show.

custom built 55 chevy

It sits on Art Morrison chassis and Forgelines, the custom interior is awesome, and the 1,000 horsepower V8 mill is a Wegner Motorsports built 427 LS equipped with 2.9 liter Whipple supercharger. There are plenty of cool custom touches all over the ’55 Chevy build and it runs as great as it looks.

Check out the Metal Works video to see and hear more of this Blacked out Tri-Five Chevy.
