Af­ter own­ing a string of Tri-Five Chevs over the years, Russ McIn­tyre is now build­ing what he con­sid­ers to be the ul­ti­mate ’55. The car is cur­rently in the hands of Si­mon Tip­pens at Cre­ative Metal Works, where the sheet metal is be­ing brought up to bet­ter-than-fac­tory con­di­tion. To date, a new re­cessed fire­wall has been added, to al­low for Russ’ en­gine of choice — a big block, of course — and new floor sec­tions have been cre­ated and the rear quar­ters per­fected. While the plan for the car isn’t for it to look com­pletely wild, Russ wanted it to drive as nicely as pos­si­ble, so the body now sits on a full Art Mor­ri­son chas­sis. You can bet that with two per­fec­tion­ists like Russ and Si­mon in­volved, the car will be flaw­less. We’ll bring you more as the build pro­gresses.
