1955 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 Additional Info:

You already know how much of an icon the Tri-Five Chevys are, so imagine our delight when this lovely 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air showed up with classic two-tone paint, a performance crate V8, four-on-the-floor, and an A/C interior. All of this for one of the best prices you'll ever find for a complete '55 hardtop.
This car is striking a balance between iconic classic and all-out hot rod, and the paint starts off this impression perfectly. The metallic blue has a modern clear coat finish so it makes for a terrific first impression every time the sunshine hits it. The bright white adds instant distinction to let everyone know you have a desirable two-tone. These Bel Airs really got their trim right as it's used to emphasize the best features of the coupe such as a dividing line for the two-tone and a bright way to highlight the pillarless hardtop profile. Plus, the chrome king bumpers are brand new to give off a mirror-like shine. Those modern Coys wheels that are staggered 18/20 inches front/rear to hint at the performance upgrades beneath the skin.
The interior continues the blue and white two-tone theme. Wide bench seats with textured cloth inserts are pure '50s cool. The same goes for the iconic dual cowl dash. You get the right vintage features like the stylized steering wheel and fan-style gauges, but there are also plenty of modern upgrades to make this a fantastic cruiser. Features like the AM/FM radio with digital tuner and auxiliary input, as well as the cold-blowing air conditioning mean you'll comfortably take this one far further than just the local car shows. The Hurst shifter is there to remind you this is a true driver's machine.
Part of what makes these cars a legend is that 1955 was the first production year for the Chevy small block V8. The only optional eight-cylinder in this inaugural year was the 265 cubic-inch motor. So this keeps the original small block spirit, but it has been given a serious upgraded to a more powerful 350 cubic-inch unit. Once you look past the shiny elements like the air cleaner and valve covers, you're going to see the substance of a ZZ3 crate motor. This was believed to be rated at 340+ horsepower, and that was before it was upgraded with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. You get complete control over the enhanced power plant thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. And the growl of the Flowmaster dual exhaust is absolutely sweet. But this classic Bel Air isn't a complete street brute. Features like power steering, front disc brakes, and the grip of modern performance tires means you'll be driving to the cruise-ins with a smile on your face.
You know how much a genuine 1955 Bel Air hardtop coupe is worth on its own, and so to combine it with the great driving upgrades just makes it a true deal at this price. But you're not the only one who noticed this, so hurry up and call today!
