55' Chevy coupe "Bel air"Pro touring 572 by PTTM
55' CHEVROLET COUPE with 572 cui BIGBLOCK !, custom build by PTTM
Owner : Wilbert de Koning
Engine : 572 cui Chevrolet Bigblock by PTTM / Trans : TH700R4 with overdrive and 4 link rear end.
Wilbert's long-lasting dream was to own his own a 55'coupe and to have the car fully customized into his own personal car and style. He turned to PTTM for the job and we are proud that we are the one he trusts into building his dream car. Starting out with a very solid and technical sound car the body was restored and painted by PTTM paint shop in a two tone top paint job which was then hand-polished to get a fantastic shine. Wilbert also asked for a car that would really handle in the corners and would brake perfect, so we changed the complete suspension over to a coil over suspension system and at the back we gave the car a complete custom build 4 link suspension system so the expected power of the new engine we had planned could touch the ground and the car would handle well in a straight line as in corners.
The car also received a complete new Bear 4 wheel disc brake kit with monster calipers and special pads. The complete underside was also painted and coated after we installed new brake and fuel lines. Seeing Wilbert wanted some real power, PTTM muscle engines build him a hand built MONSTER MUSCLE 572 cui Big block engine which dyno'de at more than 720 HP and monster torque. It was installed in the car with a new aluminum radiator, trans cooler and special made Headers for the 572.
It was also combined with a brand new 4-speed Monster automatic transmission with an overdrive.The car also received numerous special details and a complete new wiring system, a custom digital dashboard and a new console with shifter that matched the perfectly done custom build beige leather interior.
The car also received special handmade 1ofakind billet aluminum wheels with HUGE rear tires so all the power could be handled and give the car that fantastic look. All the chrome, all trim and lights were restored and the car also received a PTTM custom-made polished stainless steel dual exhaust system with a fantastic sound.
The complete build was done 100% in PTTM's own shops. All in all this high-quality show car doesn't only look good, but even more importantly it drives even better and handles like a dream and be sure it is REALLY FAST! The car was delivered to its new owner in Holland in April 2014.
The owner told us:

I think its one of the BEST Chevy's i have ever seen, in looks, quality, and design. Thanks PTTM for this high-quality build and i'm 200% happy with you guys and my new car!
