1 MAKE Clas­sic In­dus­tries MODEL '55-'57 Chevy Tri-Five Wind­shield Mold­ings URL www. clas­sic in­dus­tries. com OVER­VIEW If there’s one thing that both­ers me, it has to be pit­ted or bent mold­ings on a car that has been flaw­lessly body­worked and painted. I mean c’mon, there’s just no rea­son to sab­o­tage your car’s iden­tity by miss­ing out on the finer de­tails. Now Clas­sic In­dus­tries offers OER-au­tho­rized re­pro­duc­tion wind­shield mold­ings for '55-'57 Tri-Five Chevys.

These stain­less steel mold­ings are man­u­fac­tured to fac­tory specifications, fea­tur­ing cor­rect con­tours and ac­cu­rate end shapes to en­sure they con­nect to­gether just like the orig­i­nal units. The lower mold­ings also fea­ture wiper arm cutouts per fac­tory specs.

2 MAKE JEGS MODEL High-Per­for­mance Trans Cool­ers URL www.jegs.com OVER­VIEW We all know what a trans­mis­sion is, but lit­tle do we know just how hard they work. In the­ory, your car’s trans­mis­sion fluid should be run­ning be­tween 175 and 225 de­grees, and for every 20 de­grees you drop the temp you es­sen­tially dou­ble the life of your trans­mis­sion.

Aside from flush­ing and re­plac­ing the fluid, the most im­por­tant thing you’ll need is a high-per­for­mance trans­mis­sion cooler. JEGS is pleased to an­nounce the re­lease of a new line of them that are built to per­form. The units are spec’d out for ve­hi­cles with a GVW start­ing at 18,000, run­ning all the way up to 30,000.

Each of their units are ul­tra­son­i­cally sol­dered, elec­tro static ally pow­der­coated, and pres­sure tested at 150 psi for ul­ti­mate re­li­a­bil­ity. As an added bonus, throw in a sta­tor fan to evenly dis­trib­ute air over the cool­ing area and you have your­self a recipe for sweet suc­cess. Al­though tucked away in the front clip, trans­mis­sion cool­ers may not get you brownie points on your show car, but it’ll guar­an­tee that you’ll get where you need to be, so see which one fits your needs and get ready for smooth sail­ing!

3 MAKE Holley MODEL Diecast Retro­fit Fuel Pump Mod­ule URL www.holley.com OVER­VIEW If you’re look­ing to sup­port up to 875 EFI horse­power or 1,100 car­bu­reted horse­power then take a look at the Holley/MSD Diecast Retro­fit Fuel Pump mod­ules. Avail­able in re­turn and re­turn­less ver­sions, they con­vert your fac­tory tank or fuel cell to an in-tank EFI fuel sys­tem and pro­vide all the ben­e­fits of Hy­draMat tech­nol­ogy. They're easy to in­stall with basic hand tools and re­quire no weld­ing or fab­ri­ca­tion what­so­ever. Holley Diecast Retro­fit Fuel Pump Mod­ules in­clude a die-cast pump-hanger bracket to con­trol pump vi­bra­tion in a low-pro­file de­sign that's per­fect wher­ever space is at a pre­mium. They fit any fuel-tank depth from 7 to 12 inches and protrude only 1.275 inches above the tank-mount­ing sur­face to ac­com­mo­date nu­mer­ous ap­pli­ca­tions. You can lo­cate the mod­ule be­side your ex­ist­ing send­ing unit any­where in the tank and ro­tate it a full 360 de­grees to work flaw­lessly with var­i­ous plumbing and wiring con­fig­u­ra­tions. The in­no­va­tive Hy­draMat sys­tem en­sures a steady, con­sis­tent fuel sup­ply, and its 3x15-inch mount­ing flange has six dif­fer­ent clock­ing-pin lo­ca­tions to al­low for 360-de­gree ad­just­ment to clear send­ing-unit lev­els and any tank-floor re­stric­tions. Once the mod­ule is in­stalled, all you need to do is con­nect your power source/ground and fuel lines.

4 MAKE JEGS MODEL 3.5-Ton Stack Stands URL www.jegs.com OVER­VIEW With a fixed height of 14 inches, JEGS Stack Stands give you a solid and sta­tion­ary plat­form and rest­ing place to work on your car. When used in pairs, they can sup­port 3.5 tons per pair, and per axle, and they’re ideal for long-term projects or stor­age. Each made out of high­strength steel and then pow­der­coated, these rugged JEGS stands are a dream come true—or a night­mare should you need them and not have them. So catch a bud­get and throw a pair in your garage be­cause you never know when they’ll come in handy.
