Gary Holyoak’s Chevy Bel Air has it all

There isn't a hot rodder around who hasn't at one time during his (or her) formative years "borrowed" Pop's car. Most of the time Pop wasn't supposed to know but for many of us there were those fond times that make for great memories where the two would work on the car together.

Gary Holyoak of Cedar City, Utah, grew up with his 1955 Chevy Bel Air "post" but back then it belonged to Dad and it was his plan to drag-race the car. Life has a way of changing our best laid plans and such was the case for this 1955. It sat for decades in the family carport while the "family" grew, and then came storage, and it wasn't until 2011 that Gary took over the project. It was Gary's intent to resurrect the 1955 and bring the car back to all of its former glory—and then some. Gary had reason to want the build to happen quickly but also wanted a hot rod that would answer both of their wants and dreams.

In the car-building world projects of this scope take time. And 10 months is usually the "warm up" but with this project that was the timeline and thus that's the way it had to be! Gary sought the talents of Dave and Charity Kindig of Kindig-It Design in Salt Lake City, Utah. Couple their leadership and the talents and efforts of the Kindig staff and Gary and his dad had their 1955 the way they always wanted.

The two-door post Tri-Five maintains stock sheetmetal with a few subtle yet effective changes, such as a black powdercoated grille, shaved gas door, and trunk trim and 3-inch tubs for added wheel/tire clearance. The stock front and rear bumpers were welded into one piece while the lighting remained stock. The outside mirrors come from Billet Specialties and the interior mirror is 1955. The PPG two-tone Classic Clay and Toyota white was sprayed on by Kindig-It over their own body- and paintwork.

Inside there is a great deal to look at yet the basic 1955 dash remains. To it Dakota Digital analog gauges are fit into the factory pod, a Kicker stereo is housed in the original factory radio location, and the wiring chores fell to an American Autowire system put in place by Kindig-it Design. An ididit tilt steering column with a Koches reproduction Tri-Five wheel (cut down to 14-1/2 inches and not the original much larger diameter wheel) handles the steering needs. While the custom center console comes from JS Custom Interiors and is the handiwork of Justin Stevens it houses the Vintage Air A/C controls (dash-mounted vents are more Vintage Air touch), the Tremec six-speed shifter custom built by Kindig-It Design, and is covered in the same Ferrari tan leather as is the modified Corbeau bucket seats in front and rear bench. More leather can be found on the custom-stitched door and kick panels while the window cranks and interior door handles come from Billet Specialties. (Outer door handles are Kindig-It Design over-the-counter items.) Underneath the copper-colored carpeting is a liberal covering of Dynamat to keep out unwanted sounds and heat. Resting just above the carpeting is the pedal assembly from Clayton Machine.

The factory chassis was discarded in favor of the Art Morrison Enterprises Tri-Five chassis equipped with AME lowered spindles, rack-and-pinion steering, Strange coilover shocks, Wilwood 13-inch rotors in front and calipers, and an ABS Power Brake Inc. billet master cylinder. Wilwood brakes and Strange shocks also found in back along with a Strange 9-inch rearend fitted limited-slip with 3.50 gears. An electronic parking brake was fitted by Kindig-It Design. At the corners there is a set of Schott wheels in the Americana series that measure 19x8 with 4.5-inch backspace and 20x12 and 5-inch backspacing wrapped in Michelin Pilot rubber coming in at 225/35R19 and 325/30R20.
Moving this hot rod down the road is a 435hp Chevrolet Performance LS3 (6.2L) crate motor topped with a Kindig-It Design custom-fabricated air cleaner and exhaust system flowing through Flowmaster mufflers along with AME headers. A Billet Specialties Tru Trac serpentine belt system accessorizes the engine along with Offenhauser valve covers fitted via Taylor adaptors with cooling chores falling to a Be Cool three-core aluminum radiator. Moving the power rearward is a Tremec TR-6060 six-speed using Chevy clutch package.

The goal was 10 months for the build and the 1955 made it with incredible results.

Now your classic 1955-1957 Chevy can have the handling characteristics of an exotic sports car! All it takes is a CAD engineered replacement chassis from Art Morrison Enterprises Inc., and it's a project that most competent do-it yourselfers can accomplish in their own home garage. Little or no welding is required to install this chassis.

Up front, we've designed a suspension that provides an excellent combination of ride comfort, cornering agility and high speed stability. Tubular steel control arms and Strange Engineering adjustable coil-over shocks are employed, while a matched rate 1" diameter sway-bar controls body roll.

In place of the antiquated OEM steering box we offer the superb power rack & pinion from DSE. The 20:1 ratio is ideally suited for most highway driving. Other options available.

The chassis has been engineered to accommodate all popular transmissions, including Powerglide, TH350, TH400, and 700-R4 automatics, as well as any 4-speed, Tremec TKO and T-56 6-speed, Richmond 5-speed or 6-speed manual transmissions.

1955-1957 MULTILINK IRS TRI5 CHASSIS

There are a number of important handling and ride advantages to an independent rear suspension. Probably the most noteworthy is the IRS's ability to compensate for bumps and irregularities in the road (or track) and maintain the tire's vertical axis perpendicular to it. The net result is an optimum "contact patch" for both right and left tires. And the semi-active steering components increases cornering performance for autocross, track day and canyon carving.

AME's Multilink IRS is based on the Strange Engineering S60 differential, which is capable of handling more than 1400 HP with ease. Bring on the power adders!
