1955 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 Additional Info:

Beautiful two-tone on the outside, a custom A/C interior, and a powerful small block under the hood this 1955 Chevrolet 210 Del Ray takes an iconic classic and fills it with everything you want in a turnkey ready package.This is the first year for the iconic shoebox Chevys, so it's important to get all the details right. That's why this Del Ray Club Coupe has a great two-tone separated by the proper trim lines. Of course, you could never get this kind of luster and shine in '55, and so what is grabbing your attention now is a full professional respray that takes advantage of vivid modern clearcoats. But it takes more than just great paint to be a cut-above classic. All the brightwork looks like it has been expertly maintained to make sure that the bumpers shine like mirrors, and the panels line up so that the side trim continues uninterrupted. But the longer you look at this one, the more you realize it's much more than just a great-looking vintage coupe. It has aggressive touches like the large dual exhaust tips and 15-inch ARE wheels that hint at the enhancements found throughout the car.The moment you open the door, you begin to understand that the money invested in this Chevy was not just about restoring it, but also improving it along the way, too. Those button-top cloth seats offer a sofa-like comfort to you and up to five passengers. When you slip behind the factory wheel and gaze at the bright dash, this feels like a cool time capsule. But then you see the full Dakota Digital gauge package, and you realize this is far from stock. Upgrades like the Ididit steering column, AM/FM stereo w/CD changer, and ice-cold modern R134a air conditioning are the kind of investments you'd want to do yourself, so you love to see them already expertly installed.Part of what makes this coupe a legend is that 1955 was the first production year for the small block V8. That's must be why there has been so much invested in giving the engine bay a show-worthy shine. The only optional eight-cylinder in this inaugural year was the 265 cubic-inch motor, and so this keeps the original small block spirit, but has a huge upgrade. It's a 350 ZZ4 crate motor with all the right shiny components to make you proud to take it to car shows. But more than just displacement, it has been performance-built with a Demon four-barrel carburetor, MSD Ignition, and long tube headers. That means this cool classic is putting out 330+ hp and the rumble of the dual exhaust lets everyone know you've got some serious power. But more than just looking great and going fast, this is an all-around thoughtful build. You see it in everything like the tidy belts, wires, and hoses. In fact, there's less than 2,300 miles on the whole build. It has an aluminum radiator w/electric fan so the car can stay cool even when you're in traffic with the a/c running. Add in features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes, and you soon realize this iconic Chevy is a great everyday choice.This '55 shoebox Chevy is the classic you would build if you had the time. But instead you get to skip right to the fun part and this cool coupe can have you cruising this weekend... but only if you call today!
