"Early post-WWII Detroit was just getting back on its feet, cranking out automotive designs that were mostly continuations of pre-war technology. It wasn t until the mid- 1950s that some truly interesting, modern-for-the-day designs came out. One of the best, and most enduring, was that of the Chevrolet models built from 1955 to 1957. With just shy of 5 million units built, this design became one of the most popular ever among automotive enthusiasts and modifiers alike. With its flexible platform, no model has seen more variations of performance interpretation than what is now known as the Tri- Five Chevy. With an abundance of aftermarket parts available, the Tri- Five has seen a renaissance in popularity with the modern Pro Touring style of builds. Worn-out mid-1980s restorations and crude ex-pro street cars have become obvious candidates for building this new technology-friendly and capable style. In Tri- Five Chevys: Building and Modifying the 55-56-57, mechanical upgrades for the chassis, engine, transmission, suspension, brakes, tires, and wheels are all covered through step-by-step procedures. Applying this modern technology will help you be competitive when campaigning your Tri-Five through the vigorous courses on the Ultimate Streetcar Challenge or simply enjoying the benefits of modern performance on the street. For the novice builder and the hardcore hobbyist, Tri-Five Chevys: Building and Modifying the 55-56-57 is the only book on the market catering to a Tri-Five Pro Touring build. Veteran author Patrick Hill helps you apply these upgrades through careful planning, design, and assembly of a Pro Touring Tri- Five machine."
