John Lucia's Project 55
This is a beautiful ground-up restoration of a 55 Chevy Belair 2 door hardtop done by John Lucia and friends. Here it sits in his garage, and as you can see is only awaiting a few things til completion such as interior and some chrome moldings. John bought this car for about $9000 at the Adirondack Nationals a few years back and has been working on it ever since. It sports a ZZ4 350ci crate motor, rated around 385hp and over 400lb-ft torque, it has edelbrock carb & air filter, MSD ignition, B&M shifter, American Racing Wheels, dual exhaust, headers and much more.
