1955 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 Additional Info:

The 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air is meant to be a great cruising classic. So when you can find one that was expertly restored with a custom A/C interior, bright two-tone paint, an upgraded suspension, and a show-worthy performance V8, then this is exactly the coupe to live up to your dreams.
The two-tone follows close to the 1955-correct Cashmere Blue and India Ivory, so it has an immediate vintage appeal. But you can also tell there's a superior luster on this one that's courtesy of a more modern re-spray. It's all part of a full restoration that the consignor states happened in the last three years. And the investment in quality is seen throughout this car. That's why the iconic brightwork looks terrific. The mirror-like bumpers, large grille, and jet-inspired hood ornament are all shining bright. And because all the bodywork is straight, the intricate trim that runs through the doors continue like an unbroken line. Plus, the wide dual exhaust tips and 17-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels hint at some of the upgrades within.
Just like the exterior, the interior has vintage appeal with plenty of investment in the right upgrades. It starts with the seats. The pattern is similar to what you'd get on a '55 Bel Air, but the quality the gray cloth insert in the seats is a major upgrade in comfort. And when you hop inside, you're going to see classic element like the dual cowl dash nicely mixed with modern upgrades like the cup holder center console and AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input for your iPod. Plus, this classic now has modern R134a air conditioning, so you get to show off the pillarless hardtop profile without breaking a sweat. But you get more than just comfort features. The wood and chrome sports steering wheel, expertly integrated Moon Eyes auxiliary gauges, and large Moon Eyes tach mounted on the tilt column all let you know this is a driver's machine.
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 making the engine bay so tidy and bright. 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 performance crate motor with all the right shiny components to make you proud to take it to car shows. Plus, it inhales deeply from an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and the V8 exhales with authority as headers feed the Flowmaster dual exhaust. That means this cool classic is putting out some serious power. But more than just looking great and going fast, this is an all-around thoughtful 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. Plus, the transmission has been upgraded to a 700R4 four-speed automatic with highway-friendly overdrive. Add in features like the power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and the grip of modern Goodyear Eagle GT tires, and you soon realize this iconic Chevy is a great every day choice.
This '55 Bel Air 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!
