Terrific Tri-Five: 1955 Chevy with Ridetech Suspension

Tri-Five Chevys have always been hot. They’re the perfect platform for just about any project. Hot rod, custom, street machine, you name it. As we were walking around the Minnesota State Fairgrounds at Back to the Fifties earlier this summer, we were drawn to Jay Rohde’s ’55 Chevrolet 210 sedan.

From the metallic olive paint to the ground-hugging stance, the Elk River, Minnesota-based Chevy has an aggressive look. It means business. Our 1955-1957 Chevy system gets it sitting low and handling far better than ever.

In the rolling stock department, Jay opted for matte black Rat Rod Series wheels from US Wheel. He painted the rest of the car’s trim to match, creating a stealthy appearance. Chrome spider caps add a touch of class.

Much like the exterior, the interior blends function and form. Highlights include a Grant steering wheel, lightweight bomber seats and a high-riding shifter. A Punch subwoofer between the rear seats makes driving this 1955 Chevy even more fun.

Jay and his fellow Remnants Car Club members had an impressive showing of machines at Back to the Fifties. For a full feature on Mark Marshall’s 1964 Chevy, click here.
