Chris Sondles is the owner of Woody’s Hot Rodz, a garage that specializes in building old-school 1955, 1956, and 1957 Chevys (Tri-Fives) with the modern day performance that you would see in new GM vehicles such as the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 or Cadillac CTS-V, and we absolutely love it.
Sure, you could just buy a newer car for modern-day conveniences and a classic car for the sharp, distinguished look, but why settle for either when you could have the best of both worlds? That’s what makes these cars so appealing to us, along with the fact that you could customize them to your exact preferences.
With the cars starting at $75,000 built and around $40,000 if you build it yourself, and with the specialty tuning shop having produced over 125 of these bad boys, according to The Detroit Free Press, we think it’s safe to say that these Tri-Fives are the real deal. Sondles hopes to reduce production time from one year to six months. Though, a 1955 Chevy convertible powered by an LT4 and equipped with features like launch control and electronic cut-outs would certainly be worth waiting for.
