FUEL INJECTED LS1, 4 SPEED AUTO, COLD A/C, 4 WHEEL POWER DISC, REAL VC BEL AIR!

Cars like this 1955 Chevy Bel Air Restomod require two things: time and money. The more of one you have, the less of the other you need, but there's no way around it, a car this nice requires a serious investment. Packing a beautifully detailed 5.7L LS1 V8 and 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission under the hood, an upgraded suspension underneath, all wrapped up in a gorgeous India Ivory-over-Dark Blue finish that's got us all hot-and-bothered in the showroom. Fast, reliable, and drop-dead beautiful, it's everything the original designers would've wanted the 1955 Chevy to be if they had the benefit of modern technology, and with only 9289 miles on the build, it's still pretty darn fresh, too.

The White-over-Dark Blue paint job isn't exactly factory correct (it was originally India Ivory-over-Regal Turquoise, and the blue is darker and more vivid than anything offered in 1955), although it's a definite upgrade in our opinion and we love how the modern materials give it a sparkling contrast. Two-tone paint and shiny chrome is a combination that would have looked right at home on the streets of 1955, although there was no paint that looked this darn good way back then. The bodywork is nice, ... Please ask for the full description.

FUEL INJECTED LS1, 4 SPEED AUTO, COLD A/C, 4 WHEEL POWER DISC, REAL VC BEL AIR!

Cars like this 1955 Chevy Bel Air Restomod require two things: time and money. The more of one you have, the less of the other you need, but there's no way around it, a car this nice requires a serious investment. Packing a beautifully detailed 5.7L LS1 V8 and 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission under the hood, an upgraded suspension underneath, all wrapped up in a gorgeous India Ivory-over-Dark Blue finish that's got us all hot-and-bothered in the showroom. Fast, reliable, and drop-dead beautiful, it's everything the original designers would've wanted the 1955 Chevy to be if they had the benefit of modern technology, and with only 9289 miles on the build, it's still pretty darn fresh, too.

The White-over-Dark Blue paint job isn't exactly factory correct (it was originally India Ivory-over-Regal Turquoise, and the blue is darker and more vivid than anything offered in 1955), although it's a definite upgrade in our opinion and we love how the modern materials give it a sparkling contrast. Two-tone paint and shiny chrome is a combination that would have looked right at home on the streets of 1955, although there was no paint that looked this darn good way back then. The bodywork is nice, the top driver-quality glossy paint presents beautifully, and the car fits together extremely well – the result of all that time and money spent during this Bel Air's comprehensive restoration. The finish is incredibly sleek, with only very minor imperfections to speak of, (minor stuff acquired in the past 9K miles, but nothing that should scare off anyone – this sucker is impressive), the sheetmetal is straight, the gaps are even, and the curb appeal is off-the-charts. For under six figures and with such low miles on the build, you'll be hard-pressed to find a cleaner Tri-5 Chevrolet on the market. All the chrome and trim is brand new or restored and absolutely glistening, which also means someone spent enough cash restoring it all to put a kid through college. This is a Tri-5 that absolutely commands attention and is ready to collect a lot of smiles-per-miles.

Inside, the stunning White-and-Blue interior is incredibly well done, offering supreme comfort and all the modern conveniences a quality resto-mod commands. Supple yet firm cloth-and-vinyl covers both the front and back seats in a magnificent pattern that puts high-end furniture to shame, and the door panels use the same top-quality stuff that shows off an artist's touch, along with billet hardware that really pops out. The builders refinished the original dash by covering it with matching dark blue paint around the machined brightwork, and they added Dakota Digital gauges behind the stock-style panel ahead of the driver, all wired up neatly out of sight. There's also a fully restored, dual-ring steering wheel at the helm of the cockpit, a perfect piece for this all-new interior, and a tall Lokar shifter with a matching two-tone skirt manages the automatic transmission below. A Vintage Air R134a A/C system has been neatly installed with vents under the dash, a retro-sound AM/FM/AUX stereo powers upgraded speakers inside the kick panels, and color-keyed vinyl floormats protect the cut-and-pile of the plush carpets below. Out back, the trunk was neatly finished to match the cabin, complete with hidden panels and a battery cut-off switch. A lot of money was spent on this upscale interior, and it shows as it's absolutely dialed-in.

Power comes from a beautifully dressed, fuel-injected 5.7L LS1 V8 engine that's barely been broken in. Professionally installed and with less than 10K miles on the build, the upgraded motor looks new in almost every way, yet it was so neatly installed it's as if it was born there. A quick-look and you might mistake the dark blue engine bay for that of a Corvette's, with the color-matched intake, polished valve covers, and modern components like the cold-air intake system, billet serpentine set-up, and giant aluminum radiator up at the front. With all that contemporary gear and fuel-injection, it starts and idles like your daily driver and actually pulls down decent fuel economy on the open road, and it's got plenty of pop up-and-down the throttle. Underneath there's a slick-shifting 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission to handle all the added power, a nice upgrade over the original 2-speed PowerGlide. Long-tube headers feed a fierce Magnaflow H-pipe dual exhaust system that sounds fantastic, and power 4-wheel disc brakes at the corners with drilled and slotted rotors – meaning this '55 hardtop practically drives like a brand new car. And to finish the custom look, it rides on a killer set of 17-inch US Mags wheels wrapped in Sumitomo performance radials.

It's rare to see cars this nice, and when one like this shows up at a cruise night or car show, it's obvious where the big money was spent. From the superb paint and bodywork to the rumbling fuel-injected V8 under the hood, it's a car that will delight you every time you see it in the garage or climb behind the wheel. Isn't that exactly what this hobby's all about? Call today!
