SUPER SLICK PAINT & BODY, 350CI W/ 5 SPEED MANUAL, A/C, SWEET INTERIOR, CLEAN 55
You already know how much of an icon the Tri-Five Chevys are, so imagine our delight when this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air showed up with huge investments in amazing two-tone paint, custom A/C interior, a simmering performance small block V8, and a modern five-speed manual. It is a true no-compromise icon that gives you the best of everything.
The two-tone red and silver color combination is exactly how you want this classic to look. The exceptional luster is courtesy of a more modern respray that is quite possibly one of the finest applications we have ever had. It sets the tone perfectly for how you want to be seen in this coupe – a great classic that has been enhanced for a little more "look at me!" attitude that happened back in the day. Combined with the mirror-like bumpers, torque thrust-style wheels, and dual exhaust, this Bel Air could be straight out of American Graffiti. But more than just nostalgia, make sure you take some time to look at how it gets the fundamentals correct. All the body panels fit well, the doors close with authority, and all the hard to find intricate trim is complete.
Inside is a full custom interior that really gives you a luxury experience, and the way the colors coordinate with the exterior, it could possibly win awards all on its own. It starts with the leather buckets up front. These not only have better bolstering than anything that came out of the 1950s for superior comfort, but the driver's one is also power adjustable to get you into that perfect position. The pristine colors on these front seats are not only shared with the rear ones, but also the custom side panels, headliner, and even the new center console. This console houses great features for everyone, including a Sony AM/FM/CD stereo and ice-cold air conditioning. But like any good custom classic, the best treats are reserved for the driver. You get a cool custom steering wheel for your left hand, and your right one may never want to leave the Hurst shifter. Plus, you stay completely informed on everything that's going on with your vintage Chevy thanks to the Classic Instruments full gauge package that expertly fits in the original speedometer's place.
Part of what makes this coupe a legend is that 1955 was the first production year for the small block V8. That must be why there has been so much invested in giving the engine bay a show-worthy shine. In fact, with the flame-etched valve covers, air topper, master cylinder, alternator and so much more looking so bright, you might need to put on sunglasses before popping the hood. 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 to a 350 motor. More than just displacement, it has been performance-built with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, aluminum radiator, and long tube headers that feed the rumbling dual exhaust. With a motor this powerful, you'll be quite happy to have the upgraded five-speed manual transmission to harness the enhanced V8 to its fullest. Plus, handling is exceptional thanks to power steering, front disc brakes, and the modern grip of BF Goodrich g-force tires.
Complete with restoration photos, you get iconic sheetmetal covered in superior paint, an interior with all the best amenities, and a powerful V8 under the hood. Yes, it's the classic that does it all, and it can all be yours if you're quick enough to grab it. Call today!!!
