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

Blue and White on a '56 Bel Air is such a great color combination. Compliment those colors with some new chrome and original stainless that shines like new, then back up those good looks with a custom interior and healthy drivetrain, and you have one sweet ride. Check it out. The Ocean Blue and Pearl White paint was applied by All Colors body shop after plenty of proper preparation and the results are impressive. The stainless trim... is all factory original and polished up nicely with a bit of elbow grease. The hood ornament leads the way reflecting off the Blue hood. A fresh chrome grill is flanked on either side by auxiliary driving lights and underlined by shiny new bumper. The blue and white two tone down the side of the car is where the contrast is super sweet looking, and the chrome dividing it just adds to the effect. The taillights trimmed in chrome on the white is a good look and the trunk is underlined by another fresh bumper that has a couple chrome exhaust tips peeking out from underneath. The only thing that could make this car look better is staggered chrome wheels, so that's what it got. The American Racing mags are 18s in the front, and 20s in the rear. Open the door and you will find some nice custom interior work done by McGuires Hot Rod. It starts with the door panels that have a pleated upper panel and a smooth lower divided by a slash of chrome, along with a stitched armrest and billet window cranks and door handle. Custom stitching on the leather seats was wrapped around the original bench seats and looks fantastic. A beefy steering wheel with a bowtie center feels good in your hands and is mounted on a tilt column with a tachometer strapped to it along with a shifter for the automatic transmission. Behind it is a classic Bel Air dash with the arch top wedge housing the speedo, shift indicator, and a couple engine gauges. The chrome center section of the dash extends across to the passenger side with its matching arch top wedge and a set of auxiliary gauges are set under the dash to help keep track of critical engine functions. Pop the hood you will find a healthy engine set down in a neat and clean engine bay. It is a 383 stroker motor with full specs available on a separate build sheet. Be sure to ask your salesperson about it. There is a polished air topper feeding a Holley performance carburetor and a polished aluminum intake. That feeds White Performance aluminum heads with roller rockers while an MSD distributor, Taylor racing wires and Accel plugs get the mixture fired to make lots of power. Ceramic coated headers get the spent gasses out and headed back to Flowmaster mufflers. A Clyde Gresham built 700R automatic transmission with a shift kit sends the power back to an Eaton Posi rear with Richmond 3.73 gears. All that hustle is backed up with a tubular control arm front suspension, power steering, and power 4-wheel disc brakes. The rubber meets the road through 275/40R20s in the rear and 245/45R45s in the front. This is one good looking, comfortable, nice driving, and downright quick car. Come on down and check it out. You may decide that this is the Bel Air you have been looking for.
