‘GUNRNR’ 1957 Chev Bel Air

NZV8 - - EVENT REPORT -

These days, the name Art Mor­ri­son is syn­ony­mous with offthe-shelf bolt-in chas­sis. Over a decade ago, when Ian Prisk had Ma­goo’s Street Rods start build­ing his ’57 Bel Air, the name had barely been heard of on this side of the planet. The chas­sis, pur­chased com­plete with brakes, steer­ing, and sus­pen­sion, showed other Ki­wis that there was a mod­ern and easy way to turn your old clas­sic into the car you’d dreamed of. We’ve lost count of how many Art Mor­ri­son chas­sis have been slung un­der cars since, but, as far as we know, Ian’s was the first.
