Feature Car: Louis Younis' 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air

Tubbed, blown and slammed...

My photo shoot on Louis Younis’ 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air marks the third vehicle I’ve photographed that belongs to this prolific car builder… and they’ve all been black! You probably remember his blown LJ Torana from a recent cover of Street Machine. But I also photographed his Turbo LS-powered VK sedan few years back.

Powered by a 6/71-blown 383ci small-block, the car actually rides on a 1955 chassis that boasts Strange coil-overs front and rear along with tubular front arms, drop spindles and rack and pinion steering. It’s built to drive and Louis plans to get the beast out regularly, as evidenced by the trio of baby seats across the rear bench!

The images appeared in the January 2022 issue of Street Machine magazine.

Cover Car: Louis Younis Holden LJ Torana

Man, there have been so many killer Holdens coming out right now – I don’t quite remember the last Ford I shot. Oh, yeah I do! The nutso 1000hp Barra-powered XM from Image Conversions!
Louis Younis will be a familiar name to custom car fans in Australia. His latest build/refresh is this crazy ‘street’ LJ Holden Torana boasting a 377ci SBC with a 14/71 and trick EFI setup that was built by Louis’ dad Tony. Final assembly of the car was done by the crew at Pro Flo Performance and keen eyes would have seen a snap of the car in the Pro Flo workshop in my recent workshop tour pics in Street Machine.
My shoot on the Torana appeared on the front cover of the May 2021 issue of Street Machine.
