1956 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 -- Additional Info:

While Cleveland, Georgia's Designer Street Rods gave this 150's body plenty of attention, that work was specifically aimed at creating the most perfect surface possible. And the result is panels that are amazingly flat, displaying nary a ripple or wave anywhere. A glossy combination of burgundy and silver 2-stage lends the car a sophisticated demeanor that most pastels simply can't match. And naturally, that rich pigment, which has been stored in a climate-controlled garage since its 2009 debut, reflects a... spectacular shine that'll equal any first rate classic at any local show. Hoist the domed hood and you'll find 350 cubic inches of show-detailed V8 that, thanks to Leonard Coleman of Gainesville, Georgia, twists stout 10 to 1 compression into roughly 375 horsepower. Combining tubular Concept One control arms with small lowering blocks and fresh Bilstein shocks, the car provides a comfortable ride that's spiced by improved handling. At the center of the floors, a proven GM 700R4 4-speed sends torque from a 2,800RPM stall converter to a stout Ford 9-inch. At the front of that awesome drivetrain, a power-assisted Concept One steering box makes quick work of tight spots and sharp turns. At the corners of the car, modern, power-assisted calipers squeeze a combination of vented and drilled and slotted rotors. Spent gases float in to a $4K polished stainless exhaust system that follows an X-shaped crossover with polished Borla mufflers. And all this mechanical goodness rolls on polished American Racing Torq Thrust IIs, which spin aggressive 245/45ZR17 Riken Raptor ZRs in front of 255/50ZR17 Riken Raptor ZRs. With a detailed, frame-off restoration that would probably take a second mortgage to duplicate, this 150 rolls on the right side of impressive.
