1955 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 Resto-Mod Additional Info:

Somewhere between ultimate sleeper and ultimate cruiser lies this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air restomod. After all, it has that perfect classic hardtop appearance, but with a performance crate V8, overdrive transmission, and comfy A/C interior, it really gives proper modern power and convenience.
Calypso Coral and Shadow Gray is the factory-correct two-tone, and it's exactly how you want this coupe to look. It has an instant sense of standout class that is earned on a top-quality Bel Air. It was resprayed as part of the restoration in 2003, and the attention it commands today is a testament to an investment in the quality work. Of course, the premium appearance is also in the bright work. The chrome bumpers, grille, and jet-inspired hood ornament are all shining like mirrors. Plus, the trim really make these look artful. From the two side streaks that meet in the door, to the full bright work surrounding the pillar-less hardtop profile, Chevy stylists created a true icon in '55. Plus, you'll love all the correct detail work, like the color-matched steelies behind the factory wheel covers and rear fender skirts. It makes this one impressive total package even before people know about all the upgrades.
Perfectly complimenting the handsome exterior is a wonderful coral seats with gray cloth inserts. And it all coordinates nicely with the dash, carpeting, headliner, door panels, and even the steering wheel. The freshness you feel instantly reinforces the feeling of a quality investment. This one has all the great vintage elements you love, right down to the Corvette-inspired dual cowl dash. But as you look closer, you're going to spot some nice upgrades like the retro-style AM/FM/cassette radio, tilt steering column, and modern R134a air conditioning. So this is truly a great cruiser.
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 Holley 850 CFM four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, aluminum heads, and headers that feed the rumbling dual exhaust. But more than just looking great and going fast, this is an all-around thoughtful build. You see it in everything like the tidy wires, hoses, and upgraded serpentine belts. In fact, it has an aluminum radiator so the car can stay cool even when you're in traffic with the A/C running. You've also got a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. Add in features like power steering, a new front sway bar, and front disc brakes, and you soon realize this iconic Chevy is a great every day choice.
Complete with owner's manual, build receipts, and maintenance records, it's a total package classic that's turn-key ready right now. So you know it won't wait around long. Call now!
