According to the stack of documentation included with its sale, Avrell H. Graves of Corryton, Tennessee acquired this $2,376.55 Chevy by trading his 1948 sedan, $395.80 in cash and $1,600 in payments to Walker Motors in Clinton, Tennessee. A proud Bel Air owner, Avrell would keep the car in original unrestored condition for the rest of his life and eventually pass it to his son Zane. Zane, knowing a family treasure when he saw it, decided to execute a full frame-off restoration that would eventually see the car leave his garage in better-than-factory condition. And today, this vintage Chevy cruiser is a fully sorted head turner thats just as impressive on a summer show field as it is at a local drive-in! Hoist the cars glossy green bonnet and youll find a 265 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 which props a 1956 model (56) 3-speed backed V8 (G) assembled in Tonawanda, New York (T) build stamp above a correct 3720991 casting code. That stout small block is backed by a column shifted Muncie 3-speed transmission that sends power to a factory Bel Air rear end which enjoys long cruises down the highway. That solid drivetrain is housed in a completely rebuilt suspension which, along with the cars traditional manual steering and firm manual drum brakes, provides a great combination of ride and handling characteristics. And that rebuilt suspension rolls on a classic set of 15 inch painted steel wheels which spin 6.70-15 BF Goodrich Silvertown wide white walls around pristine center caps and optional wire wheel covers. Featuring a correct array of Light Green accents, the restoration-fresh interior of this Bel Air is one of its most impressive traits. If youve been dreaming of the perfect blend of classic 50s design and old school hot rod style, wake up! Its time to claim your car.
