AACA NATIONALS 1ST PLACE WINNER, STUNNING QUALITY, BLUE FLAME 235, AUTO, CORRECT
A very well-presented and authentic package makes this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air an instant crowd pleaser. In fact, it's already a major award winner. So look over all the details and period-correct accessories that make this a true time capsule.
This is the first year for the iconic Tri-Five Chevys, so it's important to get all the details right. That's why this has been finished in a great Tri-Five theme of Tropical Turquoise and India Ivory two-tone. The level of shine that this Chevy radiates proves there was a solid investment in a professional respray. But it takes more than just nice paint to be a Chevy worthy of everyone's attention. All the brightwork looks like it has been expertly maintained to make sure that the jet-inspired hood ornament boldly leads the way, and the panels line up so well that the side trim looks seamless as it crosses the doors. Even the special '55 bumpers shine like mirrors as they fit the car's form. And we know you love how the whitewall tires and full wheel package even follow this two-tone and chrome theme. But what really sets this one apart are the period-correct trimmings. As you might have noticed, this one comes with a 1955 accessories catalog, and it also looks like it's wearing plenty of them with the fender skirts, windshield hood, and continental kit. That's what made this a first-place winner at the AACA Nationals, and since there has only been about 300 miles on it since then, you know this Chevy is still award-worthy.
Inside, this one looks like a deep blue ocean as the factory-correct dark blue patterned cloth interior was restored to a time capsule-like appearance. Everything you love about these icons are still in place. This includes the fan-style gauge cluster and dual-cowl style dash that resembles the Corvettes of the era. This one is so authentic, you'll even be showing off the original-style mat in the trunk and AM radio that's still on display. You even have the bow tie tissue holder – yet another great Chevy accessory from '55!
Under the hood you'll find an era-correct motor, and the level of presentation makes it look like you were picking it up brand new from the Chevy dealer. The 235 cubic-inch motor is smooth and torquey, and it was a mainstay of Chevrolet vehicles for decades. Combined with a Powerglide automatic transmission, this one has been restored to keep it the smooth cruiser you would expect from a Bel Air. The Blue Flame six motor is painted perfectly to be the centerpiece in this engine bay, but don't forget to check out the level of detail with everything from the correct hoses to the air topper with factory decal. And while you're looking at the detail work, don't forget about the undercarriage photos. Now you understand what we mean when we say this car was restored to look like today is day one.
Complete with owner's manual, this '55 Bel Air is an icon that was restored to iconic status. So if you're looking for a truly top-notch classic car experience, call today!
