Don't know why Chevrolet put in a measly 265 in the '55 Nomads.

This (427) looks much better!

Thanks Guys!

I now have the 5 speed Richmond installed, and have the headers in place as well.

Going to put the steering box back on, and then I'll try to get a few more pics.

You might want to turn your steering lock to lock and make sure your pitman arm has the needed clearance to the header. Going from memory, it can be close.
