You may think they died for your ride, but it’s not true. Despite the dinosaur depiction on this edition of the ’55 Chevy® Bel Air Gasser, the whole “fossil fuels” is misleading. But guess what IS real… this car! It’s based on a 1:1 build by our designer Brendon Vetuskey. 

The name itself – Triassic-Five – is multi reference,” Brendon explains, “Tri-Five, as the 1955-56-57 Chevy® cars are famously referred to, and Triassic, as the car is about that old.” Brendon says this is a full-on, highly detailed replica of his 1:1 street machine, right down to the abundance of sponsor logos and screamin’ graphics. (And if you’re counting “tris” – check the 2022 Mainline for a third edition of this dino-dragster. It may not have all of the logos, but it’s also based on Brendon’s beast.)

Glowing in Spectraflame Bright Green with a gloss white roof, you’ll find the “TRIASSIC-FIVE” and dinosaur logo, with authentic sponsor logos, on the sides. For just the proper stance, we’ve fitted it with Real Riders slotted wheels with matte black hubs in front, then slammed Real Riders Drag Slick wheels with cheater slick tires and matte black hubs on the rear. 

With diecast/diecast construction, the chassis is painted in matte black. The interior is silver VUM – which you can see on the engine – with matte black-painted passenger compartment, and other details in matte black, matte white, and red. Lastly, you may notice something unusual about the windows: the front windshield is clear, while the sides and rear are light green-tinted.

Note of interest: there are a lot of references on this car to a famous movie – but not the one you’re thinking of! Right down to the license plate, you’ll catch hints at an early 1970s racing movie that has inspired numerous 1955 Chevy® builds. See if you can guess which one!
