This 1953 Chevrolet Sedan Pro Street has the big power setup you want with the massive rear tires, an upgraded suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and a 454 V8 under the hood. But the custom leather interior, show-ready engine bay, and all the custom details remind you that a pro street car is also about being a cruiser that can impress with its style.
Chevy had cool Yellow shades in the 1950s, so this has immediate vintage appeal. It sets the right tone for an upgraded and powerful classic that still likes to keep a touch of history. And since it wants to be a true classic, it retains nice brightwork with the wraparound chrome bumpers, jet-like hood ornament, toothy grille, and full-length side trim. While that gives this the right classic style that you'd want on a classic Chevy, it's also not hard to see there's much more going on here. The lowered stance and polished American Racing wheels have the attitude of a cool cruiser. And no matter how well those rear wheels tuck into the bodywork, you cannot hide their massive size.
The green interior is another one of those cool nods to vintage style. After all, this full custom setup would probably be easier to do in black, but instead, this is the exact kind of hue they used to complement colors like Chevy's Fiesta Cream paint. It's a comprehensive setup where the seats are in supple leather and the smooth custom door panels were done to match. The plush carpeting, smooth painted dash, tut headliner, and full finished trunk are all part of this thoughtful setup, too. There are the right modern comfort pieces, like a custom center console, an AM/FM/CD stereo, and power windows. Those front bucket seats have the right modern bolstering to give you all-day comfort. And it's a great driver's setup with the leather-wrapped billet steering wheel, a tilt steering column, a floor-shifter for the three-speed auto, and essential AutoMeter readouts.
The engine bay embodies the best of the pro street scene. The inner walls are shaved, tucked, and ultra-smooth. It makes for a terrific way to showcase the powerful big block heart. The motor looks extra tidy, and you have plenty of polish on the Chevrolet script valve covers, air grabber, aluminum radiator, billet water pump, and more. This 454 cubic-inch V8 has been upgraded with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, and long tube headers. There's a nice cam to give this big block added performance and a nice exhaust tune that's powerful without being overwhelming. The undercarriage photos show an upgraded tubular A-arm front end, a strong 9-inch diff, and a four-link rear with adjustable coilovers. And four-wheel disc brakes give you superior stopping power.
This is a professional build that was done about 25 years ago, and so that makes for the ideal balance of an old-school street machine that has earned added respect for the way it still impresses today. And you even get the photo book to show just how detailed this frame-off work was. So when you want a full custom that's made to be enjoyed to the fullest, call today!
