Childhood passion could take you to a whole new world of opportunities when you pursue them right and this 1966 Chevy Bel Air shows it. It would make you get involved in a new level that would help you spark your creative sides. The same was the story of Peter and George Bourikas from Quincy, Massachusetts. They were passionate about cars and started their journey when they were young in their parent’s garage, where the pair would sit all night long, like the mad scientist’s lab pair, cutting up junkyard bikes to create new street choppers. Their street choppers sported killer rakes and long frontends with the latest custom spare parts dunked in vibrant metal flake paints. The youngsters moved along a path of new creative designs and fabrication as they grew up.
When they were in high school, their first big motor experience was with a 1969 Camaro Z-28. It had an 8-71 huffed Chevy linked to four-speed trans Muncie. They added cool custom body mods and painted it in candy blue. Their new car was soon reckoned on the street as a new force. It was also their best contender at New England Dragway in Epping, New Hampshire. With their unnerving efforts, they soon opened their own Perfection Auto Repair, in their town. They were bespoken as a high-line body shop that catered collision work. Creating custom vehicles were always a part of their agenda.
Numerous builds flocked their shop throughout the years. When they were working on a twin-turbo Buick, 1927 Ford, V-6 powered roadster project, a customer was looking to sell his 1955 Chevy Bel Air. They hit a deal after talking to the customer. In no time, the Chevy Bel Air was in their shop exposing bare canvas. They decided to create a new Pro-mod styled car for the street that is NHRA certified using the Bel Air.
Camco Racing Engines of Weymouth put together an exciting fire-breathing 535ci big-block, stroked to perfection. In a while, they filled it with top speed go-fast goods that included Crower crank linked to Manley Pro series I-Beam rods. It had 12:1 Keith Black slugs too. The COMP cam gets the beat off while the Brodix Aluminium heads create power and MSD sets the fire up. The top part has a Dart dual quad tunnel ram that is converted to EFI with the help of a Kinsler Fuel Injection. It was then topped with an Enderle bug catcher. Custom headers helped in expelling used gases by Tubular Automotive that flowed into a TCD 4-inch steel exhaust. It is equipped with Flowmaster mufflers too. Through a custom driveshaft, the goods move on a massaged TH400 trans by Triangle Transmission of Quincy. Kinsler had the engine at a stout 800hp.
The Grant steering sets the course while a custom dash by Gamache filled with gauge insert by TCD packing carbon fiber dials from Auto Meter. The harness of the switch panels handles all the commands giving a splendid Painless Performance. The Carello Auto Upholstery of Warwick, Rhode Island created a diamond pattern classic black vinyl Kirkey racing seats for a comfortable ride. They also crafted the square weave carpets and matching side panels. It is an evil 55 Chevy Bel Air for sure, that in no time will rule the road! Check out gallery for more photos:
