800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1955 Chevrolet 150 Restomod has sleek paint, a leather-lined A/C interior, and plenty of power from a shining small block V8. So that makes for the iconic style you love in a package that gives you the best of everything.
The red paint has a sleek look that instantly gives the first impression of a classic with plenty of modern investments. But it's more than just the modern clearcoat paint that's grabbing all your attention. They took the time to get this bodywork looking good before even the first drop of red went down. That's important on a 150 model, because these have cleaner sides than other Tri-Fives, especially after its minimal badging was deleted. So it uses the upgraded paint and clean body to its full advantage here. All the brightwork looks like it has been expertly maintained to make sure that the bumpers shine like mirrors, the grille surround is crisp, and the jet-inspired hood ornament is sleek enough to take flight. That's what you get on a low mileage build. And with the aggressive touches like the large exhaust tips and 17-inch REV alloys, everyone knows they're in for something special.
The interior's restoration is even younger than the bodywork, so it looks absolutely inviting. More than just fresh, the supple leather on the seats has the kind of pattern and bolstering you'd expect on a modern luxury car. The door panels are done to match, right down to the trim rings. Even the headliner, dash, and steering wheel are all part of this thoughtfully coordinated light tan package. Not only does it look and feel like a nice place to spend some time, but also you have well-integrated comfort upgrades like a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with CD changer and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. This is meant to be a driver's car, and so you have a fold-down center armrest, tilt steering column, and a full set of upgraded Dolphin gauges.
The engine bay continues this car's overall clean look and well-done upgrades. There's plenty of shine from the polished valve covers, air topper, alternator, compressor, brackets, and more. But what you'll really love is the substance behind the style. This is a 355 cubic-inch V8 that has been upgraded with performance pieces like a mild street cam, MSD ignition, Edelbrock polished intake, and a Proform four-barrel carburetor. Headers add even more power while giving a nice tune to the dual exhaust. The TH400 three-speed is a stout unit that also delivers easy automatic shifting, so it's an ideal pairing with this power package. Plus, you have great driving upgrades like the tubular A-arm front suspension, power steering, power brakes with front discs, and sway bars front and rear.
It's awesome to have a Tri-Five Chevy that looks the good and already has all the best features. So you know you don't want to miss this deal. Call now!
