'55-'57 Chevys parallel the '32-'34 Fords in many ways - A new V8, followed by 2 great years of automotive styling.   Myself - I like the '55 the best.

starting off with the Austin Speed Shop-built '55.  This is a beaut.

Yep - they make great gassers also !  Not light enough to compete in A or B class though; those were for the Willys, Anglias, etc...

I know that the hardtop is more popular, but I dig the posts best - probably because they were more common as drag racers, plus my first project (at age 15) was a '55 post.  Never got it running as it was a basketcase and I couldn't afford an engine, but it was a hell of a lot of fun.

The Bel Air 2 door hardtop was  a car my dad and I built in the mid 80's. Shown here is me leaving for the senior prom in 1987 in it.

The wagon is a car I picked up for my wife a few years ago. Had to sell it off, and I hear about it every day. She loved that car.

This one had a huge influence on me, when I was a young lad. It was back on the street in the mid 70's, in a very small town I lived in. I later moved to the city where it was raced out of, and I ended up knowing the guys that had raced it.

What a great thread!  Tri-fives aren't really what I'm into but I sure love them.  I bought a '55 in 1967, senior year.  Had a 283 w/ a three speed and Mystery shifter.  Even had a record player.  All for $300.00.
I'd love to show a picture but not soon after some drunk ass fell asleep at the 4 way foot off the brake and rolled into my left side as I turned left in front of him.  At the time I had no idea how to fix it, course now I see how doable it would be.

The lady with the '56 at Darlington is Betty Skelton. We've seen her here before; she had many racing exploits, especially for Chevrolet as she worked for Campbell-Ewald ad agency that handled Chevy. Also, notice the six lug wheels on the car, something Chevy would later use on the 1957 SEDCO backed Black Widows when they were "officially" out of racing.

I think we all have a story similar to this.  This is the car that started my addiction to hot rods.  It's around '58/'59, I'm 15 and the guy who owned the car had an argument with his girlfriend (my cousin).  The car had a .030 over 283, tri-power (97's), solid lifter cam, column three speed with Liberty gears, and a 4.11.  It would turn mid 13's at around 101/102 mph, pretty fast for the day.  He just hammered that thing and scared the living crap out of me, but I remember it like it was yesterday.  I got my '32 on the road about a year ago (it's 460 horse at the crank) and took him for a "ride" at the exact same spot he took me.  He is 75 years old now and had the biggest grin on his face, he absolutely loved it.

We've been to a bunch of shows travelling in a group and it does well. It seems to load up a little at idle at times, but being a 4 speed and the owner knowing the car so well, he just keeps the RPMs up there to keep it cleaned out. It's a pretty stout high winding small block in it, but he doesn't pound on it like the good old days I remember seeing it in London tearing up the streets.

I went to OK City in 1983 for the Nats with two other guys. My 6-71 blown 350, an LT-1 powered '31 Chevy coupe and a Model A with a 350, 11-1's, angle plug heads, fairly big Crower solid cam and two 600 Holleys on an Edelbrock TR-1 shoebox. Sometime after the trip Roger had the top off his manifold and the lower portion had about a half inch of gas in it, kinda like the old Cross Fire 'vette injector manifolds sometimes did. Looked scary to me, but it may have been his particular combo and the long road trip at constant speeds that caused the gas to puddle.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

Just saw this on Ebay.25 large & it's yours.
 This is the history that came with this car. We are very interested in any photos, video, articles, or memories that you may have.

 

    “This 1957 Chevrolet Sedan was built to race as B/Gas and B/Gas Supercharged drag car in 1962 by a mechanic at Nickey Chevrolet in Chicago, Illinois.

    “Shake, Rattle and Roll” raced at U.S.30 Drag strip and many other mid-western tracks along with the well known “Shake, Rattle and Run” '57, a car also associated with Nickey Chevrolet. The car was orange in those days”

   “ In 1968 The car was purchased by Ed Sciacca through famed race car builder Ronnie Kaplan. Ed raced the car with dark red paint from 1968 through 1970. the car was then in storage for 35 years.”

    "Ed sold the car, refinished in Hugger Orange to collector Ralph Thomas, BAT Competition Museum, of Highlands N.C. in 2005. The car sold again to gasser enthusiast Larry Small of Stuarts Draft, Virginia in 2008.  Larry showed the car and made a few passes at nostalgia events before selling the car to our client, so he could pursue another historic race car.”

I don't know anything about Shake, Rattle and Roll but I can comment on Shake, Rattle and Run. It's still around, very much updated and still the original 2 dr. hardtop body it started life as. It was always Chevy powered, but like many race cars was constantly changed and went through small, bigger SBC and finally big block power. There are urban legends about the car, namely it was a factory fuelie car, but the early Chicago Indoor (winter time) Drags photos show no front fender fuelie badges. Some say 250 horse, others swear it was a solid lifter, Duntov cammed 283-283 4 speed car, but in reality it was a 220-283 3 spd. car. I know it runs low 7's, maybe even got into the sixes with a full tube chassis, BBC, Ford 9" and a Lenco all wrapped in the original body that it started with. Even in it's very early days 'Run was a very nicely detailed race car compared to the crude work that appears on the 2 dr. sedan 'Roll. Gotta love that nice roll bar padding on Shake, Rattle and Roll!
One more thing, why would Nickey, a premier Chevrolet high performance dealer sponsor a car with Pontiac power? Historic race car? In the seller's wet dreams.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

This was on the hood and a second 55 glass nose was sitting beside the car. He was asking $3700.00 , but the owner of the car back then contacted me a few years ago when I posted that first picture ( I think that was him standing in front of the car) and he told me he had bought the car for next to nothing and would have let it go for $1500.00 that week-end( and still made money).

I don't know anything about Shake, Rattle and Roll but I can comment on Shake, Rattle and Run. It's still around, very much updated and still the original 2 dr. hardtop body it started life as. It was always Chevy powered, but like many race cars was constantly changed and went through small, bigger SBC and finally big block power. There are urban legends about the car, namely it was a factory fuelie car, but the early Chicago Indoor (winter time) Drags photos show no front fender fuelie badges. Some say 250 horse, others swear it was a solid lifter, Duntov cammed 283-283 4 speed car, but in reality it was a 220-283 3 spd. car. I know it runs low 7's, maybe even got into the sixes with a full tube chassis, BBC, Ford 9" and a Lenco all wrapped in the original body that it started with. Even in it's very early days 'Run was a very nicely detailed race car compared to the crude work that appears on the 2 dr. sedan 'Roll. Gotta love that nice roll bar padding on Shake, Rattle and Roll!
One more thing, why would Nickey, a premier Chevrolet high performance dealer sponsor a car with Pontiac power? Historic race car? In the seller's wet dreams.
A few of Shake, Rattle and Run.

The third photo down of Shake, Rattle and Run is from "Beautiful U.S. 30 Drag Strip" outside Gary, IN.  The beautiful claim was always used in the radio spots and while I don't know about it being beautiful there was another side to it. Betting was always hot and heavy in the stands and the players often displayed guns to keep things "honest". The Stone, Woods & Cook team considered it their home track starting in the mid-'60's, their cars were based near there because the midwest was the center of the match racing universe BITD. Some great memories there and I saw many great cars run at 30. The Wednesday night shows were the best, Gassers one week, maybe fuel dragsters the next and naturally early funny cars in the mix too. It was the Golden Age of racing as far as I'm concerned.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

I saw the Illinois plate on the '55 Chevy and had to find out about the tall gentleman in the picture. I thought Alton,IL was famous for the Greek's alleged 204mph run in 1960, but it turns out that it was also the birth place of Robert Wadlow who was 8' 11.1" tall. Wow!

What with the mirrors under the dash?

To me the car is a bit of a paradox. It has six lug wheels, a 283 fuelie engine and many other touches that seem to point to it being a Black Widow '57 built by Sedco, a GM skunk works shop down south for building race cars to get around the manufacturer's ban on auto racing. If it is a legit BW why would somebody debase it's heritage by making a NHRA junior stocker out of it?
The mirrors are an old circle track deal, some drivers had trap doors that they could use a cable to tug open and check tire wear. The front was no problem but the mirrors let the driver see the rear tire treads. Again, this points to circle track racing, why have them on a strip car? I imagine the car was built to the owners wishes.

Saw this and had to share it,  one wild 55 and Jack Beckman in it to boot..............  pics were listed as from gnrs..
That's Gary Kollofski's.Went from this Bad Ass to that Italian made BPM Marine engine powered 55.
Ya baddest of the bad, blown 427, clutch turbo 400. since the original is long gone, someone should build a clone. All the parts are still available.

I must have caught Mark on FB as he responded quickly.  to quote Mark
"Hey Tom...been running the tunnel ram motor in my 55 for almost 40 years ....lol...it works very well.....it worked even better when I use to run the old 4:88's in the back. Tunnel rams work well if the motor is built for them...tunnel rams got their bad rep from guys using them on just warmed over stock motors ...even my club brother Hodge Hartman has a great set up on his big block mopar and his son Dan has a tunnel ram on his 440 Dart ...both cars work great on the street. But ....tunnel ram set up's are not for everyone....I've always liked them....I'm just showing my age as they were the rage when I was young in the 1970's....got hooked...lol."

More for ya Duane:

"you just treat them as 2 four cyl engines , and drive them hard, lower the rpm they will go the better cause as they warm up the idle increases a little bit . Its an air fuel thing changing with temperature . we use edlebrocks 500 hundred cfm cause they are easier to jet so you can fidlle with them to react good with the motor build . remember leaner is not always better"

Yes it is
If you want to run one on the street, the first gen "bread-box" TR-1s like on the '55 above are no where NEAR as good as the next generation TR-1Y or YX like I have, the TR-1 plenum is bigger and the runners are shorter than the later intakes. If you want to run a tunnel-ram on a street motor, get a TR-1Y or a first generation Weiand, they will make way more bottom end and mid-range.
