Concord , North Carolina
A 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air hardtop coupe is a classic that's always in-demand. But when you can find one that has been fully restored to have a great custom style, upgraded for comfort (including an A/C interior and overdrive transmission,) and has a V8 power with dual four barrels on top, then you know this is an impressive total street machine.
The '55 Bel Air is a rolling icon, and the blue and white two-tone captures the '50s style perfectly. That's also true because these have plenty of bright trim to provide a distinct dividing line for the colors and also draw attention to the pillarless hardtop roof. And you can tell there has been a ton invested in both the paint and the trim to make sure the whole presentation is bright, straight, and awesome. But there's more here than just the nostalgia that Chevy created. This one goes for a more distinct and custom look, but in never betrays its history (a theme you'll see throughout the car.) After all, deleting the emblems for a smooth look and adding the bright Mercury grille are the kind of individual touches that would have been done back in the day. The same goes for the classic first-gen Corvette wheels. They keep the cool chrome with whitewalls look, but now also add a dash of sporty red, which is exactly what an upgraded coupe like this deserves.
Inside is more of the classic style with the look of fresh investment and the right upgrades. For example, you get more of that nice blue and white appeal on the seats, and it even has a cool tuck and roll style insert. With matching door panels, carpeting, headliner, and even the seat-belts coordinate with this package, you get an overall look that you'll love showing off. You get the classic dual cowl dash shining brightly, and now the upgraded polished tilt steering column and later-model Impala steering wheel add to the shine. Plus, there are well-integrated upgrades like the AM/FM stereo w/digital tuner and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. So feel free to roll down all the windows, crank up the tunes, and remain feeling comfortable on any summer road trip.
The engine bay is as ready to show off as the rest of this coupe. Smooth painted walls and a tidy setup show off the V8. The '55 Bel Air was the dawn of the small block era, so this respects that history with the block color and classic valve covers. But this 327ci is larger than anything they offered in '55. Plus, there's no mistaking the look of a powerful upgrade with the twin set of Edelbrock four-barrel carburetors. While you'll love the way this fires up with a sweet sound from the dual exhaust, you'll also appreciate the practical side. There's the right supporting components like an aluminum radiator, fresh hoses, and a newer brake booster. Plus, with front disc brakes and a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, this is the classic that even loves the highway.
Complete with restoration photos, this is a thorough and clean build everywhere you look (don't forget the undercarriage photos.) So if you love the best of everything, don't let this iconic Bel Air slip away. Call now!
