This Custom Rod of the Year winning ’55 Chevy was designed by Chris Ito and required 24,000 man-hours to build. Almost every panel on the channeled and lengthened custom was hand-fabricated in-house. All trim pieces were also hand-crafted in-house from brass, and the glass was all specially cut. The incredible machine rides on a custom built chassis that uses 2000 Corvette suspension front and rear, and is motovated by a 496 cubic inch, all aluminum Arias fuel-injected big-block engine topped by a set of Brodix aluminum oval port heads producing 475 horsepower and 500 ft. lbs. of torque. As recepient of hundreds of awards and accolades, the NewMad has proved to be one of America’s best and well-known custom cars.
