BELIEVED TO BE ORIGINAL 265CI MOTOR, SUPER STRAIGHT, EXCELLENT PAINT, NICE 55!
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 restored to look terrific over every inch. And best of all, it still has its original small block V8 heart!
A high-quality restoration means getting the details right. It starts with a solid investment in its factory-correct Regal Turquoise and India Ivory two-tone. That means an authentic appearance enhanced by the best in modern shine. And making sure that this one fully pops in the sunshine all the brightwork (a key essential on these icons) that's complete and mirror-like. So you get everything you love, including the wraparound bumpers, jet-inspired hood ornament, and bright trim highlighting the pillarless hardtop profile. There's even a great set of 15-inch torque thrust wheels that are a hint to the world this is an upgraded Bel Air. The final piece to a truly stunning classic is the sheetmetal. Sunlight rolls off the body like flowing water thanks to special attention paid to getting the panels fitting correctly and the gaps uniform. This one is truly a cut-above classic.
Inside, the turquoise and cream two-tone nicely coordinates with the exterior. This tuck & roll pattern on the seats and side panels really give this one the perfect 1950s premium feeling. It all feels fresh, and it matches the color on the dashboard, headliner, and steering wheel for a full uniform classic. The presentation is exceptionally nice because there has been an investment in keeping this unique interior looking its best. For example, the radio has been upgraded to an AM/FM unit, but it fits perfectly into the dash. So there's nothing to spoil the Corvette-like dual cowl design.
Part of what makes these cars a legend is that 1955 was the first production year for the small block V8. So when you open the hood, it's great to see the original 265 cubic-inch V8 still so proudly displayed. They took their time and properly restored this now-legendary powerplant about 4,000 miles ago. And when you look beyond the excellent presentation of the bold orange paint and Chevrolet script valve covers, and you will see a motor that's ready to run, too. Upgrades like a four-barrel carburetor, electronic ignition, and four-core aluminum radiator keep this small block a true powerhouse. And while you'll love the sound of the dual exhaust, be sure to also follow its path in the undercarriage photos. The exception condition instantly lets you understand the quality difference a frame-off restoration makes. Plus, with a Powerglide automatic transmission, grip of modern tires, and upgrade to front disc brakes, you can easily show off this stellar Chevy anywhere.
Complete with restoration photos, you already know how rare it is to find a Bel Air with its original V8. So when you can get that wrapped in an all-around fantastic presentation, then you know this restored '55 Chevy is for you. Call today!!!
