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

A 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air hardtop is a true dream car for most of us. But more than just an icon, this one has been freshly restored to look terrific over every inch. And as you look over it all, the sleek two-tone, custom A/C interior, and enhanced drivetrain will tell you this delivers the best of everything. This car is striking a balance between iconic classic and all-out hot rod, and the paint starts off this impression...perfectly. The classic turquoise has a modern clearcoat finish so it makes for a terrific first impression every time the sunshine hits it. The bright white adds instant distinction to let everyone know you have a desirable two-tone. These Bel Airs really got their trim right as it's used to emphasize the best features of the coupe - such as a dividing line for the two-tone, the iconic bumpers, and a bright way to highlight the pillarless hardtop profile. And because there's less than 375 miles on this car since its full restoration, everything is straight, fresh, and correct - right down to the window moldings. But more than just a great classic presentation, those modern Billet Specialties wheels that are staggered 18/20 inches front/rear to hint at more upgrades beneath the skin. The interior continues the turquoise and white two-tone theme, so you'll love showcasing the full coordinated look with all the widows down. Wide bench seats with textured inserts are pure '50s cool. It goes well with the right vintage features like the stylized steering wheel and dual cowl dash. But there are also plenty of modern upgrades to make this a fantastic cruiser. Features like the AM/FM radio with digital tuner and auxiliary input, as well as the cold-blowing air conditioning mean you'll comfortably take this one far further than just the local car shows. And the Dakota Digital gauges have a terrific blue glow to coordinate with the rest of the interior while also providing an enhanced view at what's going on under the hood. The small block V8 is part of what makes the Tri-Five Chevys so desirable, and this one gets it truly right. Just like the interior and exterior, this is a nice balance of vintage presentation with all the right upgrades. For starters, it's a 283 cubic-inch V8 - the largest of the Tri-Five era. This is upgraded further with a Holley four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. It looks great with polished components like the valve covers, air topper, compressor, and upgraded aluminum radiator. And everything in the engine bay looks exceptionally fresh because there's only about 1,500 miles on the motor. It even has all the right supporting components - from a large electric fan to an Optima red top battery. And as you look at the undercarriage photos, everything from the dual exhaust to the bushings looks fresh on this built. So while there are so few miles on this icon, features like power steering, three speed automatic transmission, and upgraded four-wheel disc brakes means you won't be able to resist adding to the odometer. Complete with build receipts, this is a fresh and shining example of what we all love in vintage cars, and if you're quick enough, it can all be yours. Call today!!!
