Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air has that iconic classic style we all love, but the custom two-tone is your indicator that this is far more than just vintage fun. This is a restored Tri-Five with less than 2k miles on the build. They gave it features like a strong crate V8, an overdrive transmission, an upgraded suspension, and an A/C interior to make sure this is the legendary classic that's also ready for modern cruising.
This one instantly announces it's something special. Two-tone themes were terrific to have on a '55 Chevy, but the presentation is quite modern here. After all, you could get black from the factory, but it was never paired with something as attractive as this Sunset Orange. Chevrolet knew how to create awesome-looking trim to separate their two tones, and in this case, this new and shining trim also showcases how well all the panels fit together. There was plenty more invested in the brightwork to make sure you have an impressive glow from the extra-wide, jet-age hood ornament, and the big chrome bumpers that add extra curves to the design as they wrap around the sides. Soli investments all around this car really remind us why it's an icon. But the 16-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels have the look and stance to tell you this looker is also a driver.
The interior is a tasteful set up with an attractive beige and plenty of black to coordinate with the exterior. The carpeting, upholstery, dash pad, and other fundamentals all show good quality from the right investment. You'll appreciate the classic details on this clean and terrific interior. It's everything from the button top on the upholstery to the Corvette-like double-hump dash. There's plenty of bright trim everywhere, and even the classic AM radio is there for a display. But as vintage as this feels, it was restored to be a true cruiser. So the cold-blowing air conditioning is a welcomed upgrade that makes summer driving far more comfortable. And while you still have the fan-style gauge housing, it now is a Classic Instruments piece that keeps you fully informed.
The engine bay likes to impress, too. Smooth inner walls, bright components, and an overall tidy setup make it ready to show off. And there's plenty of substance behind the style. This is a 350 cubic-inch crate V8 motor. Not only is this a fresh performance-oriented motor, but it has the right added components like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock aluminum intake, and shorty headers feeding the dual exhaust. Plus, the transmission was upgraded to a 700R4 unit that's stout to handle the power and smoothly shifts all the way into overdrive. As you look underneath, you'll see this Chevy is riding on a stronger custom frame, and there's also a Fatman A-arm front suspension. Rack and pinion power steering, power brakes, front discs, and modern sport tires complete a package that makes you really want to drive this award-worthy Bel Air.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a classic first-year Tri-Five Bel Air that checks all your boxes for power, comfort, and style. That's why this one is so irresistible. Call today!!!
