That looks awesome! I LOVE the Cadillac-esqu headlights! ! ! I wish I could learn how to do this! I really do. Im a good self learner but also know when I would need instruction. I would love to find one and completely tear it down and and do what you're doing. I hope I can find this thread to keep up with the progress! Good luck!

The headlights are from a 55, i cut the front ofthe 55 fender off and worked it into the 54 fender. The frenched headlight bucket & bezel are from Chevs Of The 40's.
The build can be seen on our facebook or instagram, both can be found using boosted54 or boosted54.com

Not sure if you're a restorer or public relations specialist. You certainly are well represented all over the web.

What motivated you to pick the 54 as a platform to build? I've looked at various web sites about the Boosted 54 but don't recall if you talked about it. It's obvious from your work that you could have started with anything and shaped it into whatever you wanted. I've always liked 53/54 Chevy's with there clean lines and looks.

Hey thank you for the props. The 53 & 54's are not as often built into hot rod/resto mod as often as the 55-57. My original plan was to build a 406ci sbc like we used in our dirt track cars and just make it a ratty looking beast. Well that has all clearly changed and now im building a 1,000hp twin turbo car. Im going to be using a lot of the modern technology & crossing boundaries that are sure to upset the tried & true traditional guys.

Thank you, i traveled to some of the biggest events i could get to for about 18 months looking to see if people had implemented any of the ideas i had been kicking around before i put contacted my buddy to get going on the renderings. There are plenty of things on this build that others have done but i will be putting a modern twist on a few areas that will set it apart from most.
Thanks again

I made a mock up of my Ridetech shock wave as it would be inflated at ride height. Then used it to help set up my clearances so as to keep things as tight as possible to allow room for exhaust.

Something i didnt mention about these particular Ridetech shockwaves is that they have an adjustable rebound.

The gas filler has been filled in, and some guys just mount the new filler in the trunk. I didnt want to open my trunk to add fuel so i made a motorized tail light to access my new filler location. check out the link below. More info on the Facebook post.

Thanks man. Are the 49 Buick tails the ones that mount up on top of the fender. damn cool lights.
The actuator is a 4in unit, could have likely used a shorter one using link arms to change the ratio but already had this one.

Yeah they are. They will match the flow of the rounded part of the 50 fender.Just have to peak the top of the fender to match the peak in the light.
