Tri Five 55 56 57 Chevy Gassers

HUGE collection of Tri Five Gasser photos!!

This is a collection of tri five Chevy Gasser style cars shown for reference. Some are the real deal, some are later era Super Stockers or "Street Freaks", some are modern renditions and some are just a mess, but they are all cool in their own way if you dig these vintage cars.

There is no intent to profit from these photos. If you see a photo that you have taken and would like me to add credit for you as photographer, please indicate the photo number (not the actual name of the file) and I would LOVE to provide a credit for your fabulous shots.

Likewise, if you see your photo and prefer not to have it added to this collection of reference material, please note the photo number and I will regrettably remove it.

PLEASE email your personal gasser photos for inclusion via anderegypt@aol.com Especially loved are old family photos. Send them in!! COMMENTS WELCOME!!!

      Dal, it appears that the car in the photos is a 55 not a 56. It also has cut fender wells. Research on the JalopyJournal says it was built and owned by Dick Stokes. Dick also ran a mid sixties GTO of the same name. Are you sure this is the same car?
