1955 Chevy Gasser Mr. Chevy and Hauler at SEMA 2014 V8TV Video

The SEMA show is often equated with new parts, as it is THE show where all the new stuff is unveiled. However, this year, we brought out a vintage 1955 Chevy Gasser race car and hauler to share with the SEMA attendees. Mr. Chevy was built to this configuration back in 1968, the hauler in ’71, and the car was raced until 1976. On one bad day back in 1976, original builder Van Heck broke the car and wrecked the hauler, and banished both vehicles to his barn for good. The car was bought by Larry Frees at Heck’s estate sale in 2006 and cleaned & repaired to “last raced” condition, and the truck was restored partially by the V8 Speed & Resto Shop. Since Frees got the car running and the truck all back together, he’s been sharing the pair with enthusiasts at various shows around the country
