800 Derita Road, Ste. A
The 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air hardtop is at the top of many lists for the coolest American cruiser. So when you're looking for a true head-turner that also gets your heart pumping, this is the one you want. With shining paint, upgraded V8 power, and an A/C interior, this is an icon restored to be the total package.
This coupe grabs all the right attention. The two-tone yellow and white is a distinctive color combination that has a vibrant style. This later application gives a deep gloss and a clearcoat shine. And the investment in this one went far more than just paint. The Bel Air was the range-topper with plenty of chrome and stainless trim. So you want an example that is as clean, complete, and shining as this one. That way you can proudly show off the wraparound bumpers, jet-like hood ornament, wide grille, and the intricate side trim that provides a clear dividing line for the two-tone. While that gives this the right classic style, there's something more here. Those 18-inch Boss Motorsports wheels fill the wheel wells with some added sporty style that this one earns under the hood.
The yellow and white theme continues inside. This is a great mix of vintage and new, and the front seats show it off the best. You have the upgrade of individual buckets, but they are still done in a classic style with contrast piping and a tuck & roll insert. And the rear seats and side panels are even done to match. It's a thoughtful presentation that people love to see at the car shows. So this is a great one for rolling down all the windows of this pillarless hardtop to let people get a better look inside. It's built to be a more comfortable cruiser with well-placed upgrades like AM/FM/CD stereo w/aux input, cup holders, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. It's also upgraded to be a better driver with thoughtfully placed pieces, like the armrest center console and a wood-rimmed sports steering wheel on a tilt column.
The engine bay likes to impress, too. Smooth inner walls, bright components, and an overall tidy setup make it ready to show off. We love the '55 Chevy for launching the small block V8 era, and this one celebrates its powerful nature with an upgrade to a 327 cubic-inch small block. It has performance pieces like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and headers feeding into a rather straight set of exhaust pipes (and don't forget to notice the full clean undercarriage.) The full package was done with the right supporting components, including an electric choke and an aluminum radiator. It makes for a great cruiser, especially with more upgrades like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide modern sport tires.
Here's the iconic classic hardtop that checks all your boxes for power, comfort, and style. That's why this one is so irresistible. Call now!
