NICELY BUILT '55 BEL AIR, 350 V8, AUTO TRANS, PWR STEER/FRNT DISC, DUAL EXHAUST!

The true measure of a great design is whether it ages well. In the case of this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air 2-door sedan, the answer is unquestionably that it is one of the greatest automotive designs of all time. Beautifully finished only 6019 miles ago, it's packed with upgrades including a powerful 350 V8, an automatic transmission, desirable options, and a slick-black livery wrapped around a gorgeous A/C interior. This shoebox Chevy is a high-quality piece that is equally at home on the show field or the highway, and with looks that could kill, it won't last long.

Finished in diabolical Tuxedo Black, there's no mistaking a Tri-5, especially a 1955 Bel Air, for anything else in the classic car landscape. The design was game-changing when it was new, and even today it remains a benchmark for all car guys. Sooner or later, all car guys and gals want to own a Tri-Five Chevy, don't we? The classic lines and restrained use of chrome and brightwork make it difficult to improve on the original, so the builder of this 2-door coupe wisely chose to simply restore it and make sure he was careful with it. Granted, he upgraded the color from Glacier Blue to the slick black finish you see today, but no ... Please ask for the full description.

NICELY BUILT '55 BEL AIR, 350 V8, AUTO TRANS, PWR STEER/FRNT DISC, DUAL EXHAUST!

The true measure of a great design is whether it ages well. In the case of this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air 2-door sedan, the answer is unquestionably that it is one of the greatest automotive designs of all time. Beautifully finished only 6019 miles ago, it's packed with upgrades including a powerful 350 V8, an automatic transmission, desirable options, and a slick-black livery wrapped around a gorgeous A/C interior. This shoebox Chevy is a high-quality piece that is equally at home on the show field or the highway, and with looks that could kill, it won't last long.

Finished in diabolical Tuxedo Black, there's no mistaking a Tri-5, especially a 1955 Bel Air, for anything else in the classic car landscape. The design was game-changing when it was new, and even today it remains a benchmark for all car guys. Sooner or later, all car guys and gals want to own a Tri-Five Chevy, don't we? The classic lines and restrained use of chrome and brightwork make it difficult to improve on the original, so the builder of this 2-door coupe wisely chose to simply restore it and make sure he was careful with it. Granted, he upgraded the color from Glacier Blue to the slick black finish you see today, but no one could blame him for such a marked improvement. Paint and bodywork are quite good, with a finish that's largely just a cut-and-buff away from being one of the best in our inventory, despite being finished a few years ago. We're talking well above average driver-quality here, with only minor imperfections and couple of light touch-ups to speak of, but from just half a step back, even folks with 20/20 vision won't be able to spot anything to complain about. Gaps are good all around, and the entire car fits together in a way that modern cars just can't seem to duplicate; pull the door closed and you'll know what I'm talking about. Sure, it's got a few signs of use, after all it has been driven for over 6K miles, but that's nothing in the lifetime of a quality build like this, and the professional workmanship and excellent care work together to make this a very appealing car even today. The chrome has been professionally restored or replaced with exact reproductions, and the car proudly wears its trim like jewelry. Even the red, white, and blue Chevy emblem on the nose is a wonderful piece that offers crisp details and bright colors.

Inside, this slick 2-door got a nice upgrade in the form of handsome white upholstery and black checkered inserts on the original seats, stitched into very 1950s-appropriate patterns. Matching door panels and blacked-out carpets and floormats complete a very tasteful passenger compartment that's easy to love. The original gauge pod was replaced with a bright, billet panel that's now filled with elegant Classic Instruments units, and a Camaro-style steering wheel mounted atop a tilt column adds a sporty touch for the driver while making it much easier to get comfortable behind the wheel. A retro AM radio is fitted into the original radio's location, and a period-style under-dash A/C unit was also included in the build and comes backed with modern hardware so it's blowing nice and cold. A custom center console was purpose built just for the car, and a racing-style shifter was installed inside to manage the shifts, and it looks so good almost everyone assumes it's a 4-speed manual at first glance. With so few miles there's not much wear and tear inside, and the seats are still firm and comfortable, the headliner looks great, and even the rear package tray was properly attended to. There's also plenty of room in the trunk for all your gear plus a full-sized spare tire and jack.

Power comes from a great-running 350 V8 hooked to a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission, making this an ideal car for road trips. And while there's nothing more traditional than a small block Chevy in a 1955 Bel Air, the many upgrades under the hood make this car faster and more reliable than any stock '55 ever was. A Summit 4-barrel carburetor was installed atop and Edelbrock aluminum intake up top, long-tube headers are at the flanks, and shiny Edelbrock valve covers and air cleaner really make the block pop out from the slick-black engine bay. Options are plentiful, from the dual circuit power front disc brakes to the power steering system and to the chromed alternator out front, meaning this is a car that can be driven daily without worries. Underneath, it's very clean and tidy, but not so over-detailed that you're afraid to drive it, and you'll never get tired of the purring dual exhaust with those throaty Flowmaster mufflers. Torque Thrust-style 'Old Style' wheels with spinners look amazing on just about anything, especially a Tri-5, and they come wrapped in 225/70/15 front and 235/70/15 rear radials with plenty of tread of left.

No, it's not radical, but there's no question this 1955 Bel Air is timeless. Put it in your garage and I guarantee you'll never run out of reasons to take it for a spin. Call today!
