1955 NASCAR Chevrolet #92
In the mid-1950’s, Chevrolet was well positioned to succeed in the rough and tumble sport of NASCAR. With the introduction of the 1955 model, Chevrolet had a lot going for it, including new styling and its first modern-era V8, the 265 CID small block V8. This engine has gone on to win more NASCAR races than any other. This re-creation of Herb Thomas’ 1955 Southern 500-winning car is faithful to its predecessor, being based on a 150 series utility sedan (no back seat), and equipped with the “PowerPak” small block V8 with dual exhausts.
