Art Morrison's '55 Chevy was clearly up to the challenge for SMOY and found its way into one of the finalist positions. Morrison's shoebox had already proven its performance capabilities in a series of Super Chevy articles that included testing numbers of 0-60 in 4.3 seconds, 12.61 at 117 mph in the quarter mile and .94 gs on the skidpad. The 500-horsepower Bill Mitchell engine and Keisler T-56 combination also proved reliable on a 1,200-mile roadtrip down the West Coast. All cleaned up and dressed in a new coat of paint for the Columbus show, Morrison's '55 proved it could show as well as it could go.
