Is This Blasphemy? '55 Chevy Bel Air With Hemi Power

And it's being built in just 15 days.

Classic car people are very particular in that they don’t like for other brands’ engines and/or parts being used for modification purposes. A 1955 Chevy Bel Air, for example, should only be restored or turned into a hot rod with GM parts. Well, rules are made to be broken and the guys from Road Kill are just the pair to do it. Starting off with a rusted old ’55 Bel Air, the guys first send it off to get the body and chassis in place. Now they have just 15 days to get it up and running for a road trip.

So is a Hemi-powered Chevy a prime example of automotive blasphemy? The Hemi, after all, is what many consider to be the best engines ever made, while the Bel Air is the ideal example of GM during its 50s heyday. Check out the latest episode of Road Kill to see how it all plays out.
