This is the poster child 55 Chevy: red-white Bel Air hardtop. It retains its vintage charm but has been inconspicuously modernized. It is a reliable, easy to drive 55!

EXTERIOR: Very desirable 2 door hardtop and it\'s decked out with optional trim. The body is straight, there are some bubbles on the bottom of the doors. Great looking older paint job in signature colors: Gypsy Red-Shoreline Beige. It is polished glossy, there are some imperfections if you look for them. Jambs are painted nice. Weatherstrips were replaced. It has fender skirts, rocker moldings with stone gaurds, fuel door trim, dual mirrors, door handle guards and bumper guards. Overall, the trim is straight and shiny. Both bumpers are tarnished. New windshield and new smoked side glass. Radial whitewall tires on red rims with original type hubcaps.

INTERIOR: Restored to original condition. Reproduction door panels and upholstery on the seats. The metal trim was repainted. The dash area trim, gauges steering wheel look great. It is updated with a 3 speed shift indicator, modern climate controls and a gauge cluster under the dash. It has a retro stereo that fits in the factory hole. Correct tight loop carpet and reproduction mats. Nice headliner with the Bel Air chrome bars. Seat belts were added front and back.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Smooth running 350 motor, 4 barrel carb and HEI ignition. Modern heat and air conditioning system with a polished compressor. Modern power steering and power brake systems. It runs cool with an aluminum radiator and dual electric fans plus the fan on the motor. The alternator is chromed, battery is properly mounted, it has both horns and electric wipers. Overall clean and proper looking.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Solid metal painted white; the floor is spatter painted. Correct rubber mat and weatherstrip. It has a radial whitewall on a painted rim for a spare and an original jack assembly.

UNDERSIDE: It has a more modern front clip attached to the stock frame. Rebuilt steering and suspension, shocks were replaced. Recent dual exhaust with factory type mufflers. The fuel system has been replaced. The brakes were rebuilt, brake lines replaced, E break assembly is hooked up. It has disc in the front. Bottom of the motor is clean, rebuilt starter and new fly wheel cover. Upgraded Turbo 350 automatic. The floors have been worked on.

From the perspective of an expert this is not a perfect car. For all practical purposes it presents itself beautifully. The previous owner bought it as a gift for his wife. They enjoyed the car a few years, now it\'s your turn!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car\'s condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car, make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded, and you will be given a 1 year membership.
