This 1956 Chevy Gasser was built for George Poteet by Roadster Shop in Mundelein, Illinois. The car rides on a custom chassis that features an independent front suspension that looks like a straight axle, and a 4-link rear suspension that looks like ladder bars.

Sticking out of the hood is a supercharged LS7 V8 engine built by Wegner Motorsports. The engine makes 930 horsepower to the wheels on 18 psi of boost from a 4.5 L Whipple W275AX supercharger and two Nick Williams Performance 102 throttle bodies.

Power gets to the rear wheels through a TH400 three-speed automatic transmission and Gear Vendors overdrive to a Ford 9-inch rear end.
