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

The 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air is iconic not only for its styling, but also for being part of the Tri-Five family that launched the legendary small block V8. So when you can find an amazingly restored example that retains the iconic touches on the outside, but beneath the skin it carries upgrades like the suspension, A/C interior, and a powerful V8 heart, then you know you've found the perfect restomod. This coupe grabs all the right attention. The... two-tone follows close to the original Chevy color palette of India Ivory and Skyline Blue, but it now takes advantage of modern clearcoat shine. And the investment in this one went far more than just award-worthy paint. The Bel Air model has acres of chrome and stainless trim, and thankfully all is present on this coupe. It includes the extra wide grille that looks like a V8 smile; the hood ornament that signified the jet age; and the intricate side trim that provides a clean dividing line for the two-tone. And of course, we all love the wraparound chrome bumpers. That's why there was a solid investment in re-dipping them, so the ladies can check their makeup in these mirror-like chrome kings. These are reasons why we all love the icon, but this custom Chevy still has even more to offer. Those 17-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels fill the wheel wells with intimidation, and they're a clear indication this classy classic has some performance chops. This might be an iconic classic, but the moment you open the door, you see a very modern level of comfort. It starts with a set of terrific leather bucket seats up front. These not only have better bolstering than anything that came out of the 1950s for superior comfort, but they are also power adjustable and electrically heated. The gray color on these front seats is not only shared with the rear ones, but also the custom door panels, headliner, and trunk. Even a custom color matched center console was built with cup holders, speakers, and additional air vents! In total, it has that great uniform appearance that everyone loves to see at the shows. And more than just for appearances, this has been tastefully upgraded to be a great all-day cruiser. That's why the AM/FM/cassette stereo fits in the original dash mounting, and the R134a air conditioning controls are hidden away in the glove box. The steering wheel has a vintage look, but it's actually a small diameter grippy unit, and the tilt steering column has been upgraded, too. So the whole interior gives the ideal balance of vintage fun with modern convince. The engine bay could win awards all on its own. There was a ton invested in just getting the walls so slick. Plus, we dare you to find another component that can be polished. But more than just look terrific, this V8 is ready to put down some serious power. The 350 cubic-inch V8 is topped with a large Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. And the headers add even more power as they also contribute to the rumble of the dual exhaust. Plus, you have all the best supporting features, such as a billet serpentine drive pulley system, Eddie Motorsports aluminum hood braces, and Griffin aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans. And more than just a great engine bay, a true restomod must be improved for driving, too. That's why there's a restored suspension that includes a fully boxed frame and sway bars front & rear. And when you take this one out on the road, you'll love features like the power steering, upgraded four-wheel disc brakes, and four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. This restomod is the kind of Chevy that you've patiently waited for all your life. And if you're quick enough, your reward is ready. Call today!!!
