800 Derita Road, Ste. A
You often dream cruising near and far in a classic like this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air two-door. But then reality sets in about how older cars just aren't as comfortable, right? Well, this one has been given all the right upgrades - from a powerful crate V8 to an updated interior built with A/C - to make your fantasy driver a reality.
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 one makes a striking first impression with professionally applied two-tone. The Tropical Turquoise and India Ivory are era-correct colors that radiate with the look of a quality investment. But it takes more than a nice two-tone presentation to be a cut-above classic. All the brightwork has also been given a solid investment to make sure that the bumpers shine like mirrors and the jet plane hood ornament boldly leads the way. Plus, the panels line up so that the side trim continues like an uninterrupted line through the doors. This is a truly great factory-correct presentation right down to the details like the color-matched wheels with bow tie hubcaps and iconic whitewalls. But if you look closely, subtle items like the blue dot taillights and wide exhaust tips signal this is a bit more than just a terrific-looking classic.
A nice investment inside means the first impression feels like a time capsule from '55. The two-tone turquoise and ivory is a well-coordinated color combo with the exterior two-tone. It's a thoughtful package with comfortable cloth inserts on the seats. Good carpeting, a nice headliner, and a smooth style to the Corvette-like dash all make this a pleasant classic. But more than just vintage, this one has well-integrated upgrades to make it more enjoyable in modern times. For example, the steering wheel has the correct color-matched look, but it's a thicker and smaller diameter unit. The radio is a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with cassette for upgraded driving music. Plus, we bet you spotted the vents under the dash that are supplying modern R134a air conditioning (will need a service/recharge to blow ideally cold again.)
Part of what makes this car a legend is that 1955 was the first production year for the small block V8. This honors that tradition, but does it with a 350 cubic-inch crate V8. So one of the reasons why everything looks so fresh is because you've got a young and powerful heart in this iconic '55 Bel Air. Plus, this one has been upgraded further with a four-barrel carburetor and headers. That gives you a nice V8 with the perfect amounted of added power and extra bass from the dual exhaust. A car like this is one you're going to want to cruise everywhere, and so you get all the right features, like power steering, power brakes and a three-speed automatic transmission.
You're looking at a great driving classic that was built to show off everywhere - near or far. So if you believe in enjoying your icons to the fullest, don't miss this special Chevy. Call now!
