DANS 55


Dan Keough's 1955 Chevy Pick Up


Hell on Wheels is the way Street Trucks February 2000 feature story on Dan's 55 started out and it meant every word of it! Sporting a Blown 468 cubic inch engine with a Weiand 6-71 sucking the juice from dual Edelbrock 625 cfm carbs and blowing it into that Big Block Chevy with LS-6 rods, a steel crank, TRW pistons, General Kinetik cam, roller rockers, stainless valves with a Milidon Pan to cover the lower movement! A Brass Works water pump helps keep it cool and Two inch Jet Hot coated Hooker Headers help to get that exhaust out and into the Stainless Exhaust for a sweet rumble coming out of the rear exiting pipes.
A Fatman Fabrication's Mustang II cross member with Mustang spindles holds the front together and has Dual Mustang II brake power booster to put the squeeze on 11" disc brakes to stop this Hellion. With all that Ford in the front for stopping and steering, he wanted some Corvette in the back to send that horsepower to the American Racing Torque Thrust II wheels. This is accomplished with an "85" fully independent rear axle assembly holding 3:42 to 1 gears to polished axles. B & B Autoworks of Euclid did the rear installation and boxed in the frame rails for more strength in the frame area. Talk about one nice looking undercarriage on a vehicle driven to Shows and Cruises every day!
The interior has a tilt wheel from a "79" Cutlass sporting a LeCarra leather wrapped wheel while the rest of the interior is covered up in yards of Gray Leather which was done by "Interiors by Dave". Dan watches his engine performance through Dakota Digital Gauges. The exterior is done in Ebony Black with some Peach & Purple striping for a little touch of accent!
