Street Rodder Magazine covered the build of our own 1955 Chevy Bel-Air - dubbed CPP's '55 Revive. Our stock Tri-Five got a huge makeover starting with a new GM LS3 Connect & Cruise drivetrain package and then, wanting to take it to the next level, we added all of CPP's finest steering, brakes, and suspension components. Once completed, we took it on the ultimate road trip - 2000+ miles straight to Louisville, KY to the Street Rod Nationals and then Bowling Green for the Danchuk Tri-Five nationals! Follow through the build to see how we breathed new life into our classic Tri-Five.
Add more tire clearance and a lowered stance to the rear of your 1955-57 Chevy with our Leaf Spring relocation kit. Follow Street Rodder Magazine's coverage of how we upgraded '55 Revive with this complete kit.
Fit wheels up to 13 inches wide on a Tri-Five Chevy, a combination of Classic Performance Products’ leaf spring relocation kit and Real Deal Steel’s wider wheel tubs will allow just that, offering 2-5/8 inches extra clearance each side of the car.Followed along as the guys at CPP installed the new housings prior to relocating the leaf springs.
Hot Rods By Dean has a neat solution in its High-Performance Core Support Module. Classic Performance Products installed such a Module in the 1955 Revive project, as well as a combination of underhood support braces from Hot Rods By Dean and Eddie Motorsports!
With the new rear suspension installed in ProjecT '55 Revive, the time had come to swap out the old control arms and drum brakes up front, here’s how the new suspension and brakes went in.
The Currie Crate 9-inch rearend is in place, and '55 Revive is ready for the CPP Rear Disc Brake Kit to be installed. This complete kit is also designed for use with the stock 1955-1970 GM 10/12-bolt rear. It will also fit small or big bearing 9-inch applications and requires the use of a 16-inch or larger wheel to clear the calipers.
Classic Performance Products went to the extreme lengths—and depths—to develop and produce the largest-capacity Tri-Five fuel tank on the market … for both carbureted and EFI applications.
