DESCRIPTION

This 1955 Bel Air convertible has a sharp two-tone presentation, proper V8 power, and true wind-in-your-hair cruising appeal. As you dig into the details on this one, you can see they took the time to make it distinct without removing any of the essentials that make this the vintage icon we love.



The trim tag tells us this car was born Gypsy Red and Shoreline Beige. And the way this one radiates today tells us that there has been a quality respray later in life. It's part of an overall solid investment in keeping this one looking good. Even the crisp white convertible goes well with this stylish package. The brightwork is key on a tri-five Chevy cruiser. It has been well maintained to retain an attractive glow to the wraparound chrome bumpers, grille, and jet-age hood ornament. The side trim separating the two-tone is a true hallmark of these Bel Airs. Plus, there's a nice look of a discretely updated cruiser with Rally wheels, blue-dot taillights, and bright dual exhaust tips. But what really gives you pride in ownership is the quality look right down to the fundamentals, like the crisp body lines, good gaps, and the way the classic doors close with confidence.



Because a convertible is meant to be shared with the world, the white top goes down to reveal more of this fantastically coordinated look. The red and cream two-tone interior provides an almost seamless style with the exterior - especially with the red convertible boot in place. It's even part of the factory-correct color package! Just like the exterior, there has been a solid investment in here to give this a great classic appearance. A smooth dash, plush carpeting, and little details like the working courtesy lights give you a quality feel. The seats are particularly nice with the tuck and roll-style inserts, and the door panels also match. It's all a very period-correct style, but this also has the right upgrades. There are cleanly installed Sun Pro gauges under the dash, and the retro-style AM/FM digital tuner fits in the factory housing. It creates a time capsule-like atmosphere that also allows you to more comfortably cruise the roads of today.



The engine bay reveals more of the upgraded cruising attitude. After all, we love a Tri-Five with proper small block power, and the tag tells us this was born a VC car. But the 350 cubic-inch V8 under the hood today is something much larger than what you got in 1955. It inhales deeply with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a great exhaust note from the glasspack style setup. The motor fires up eagerly, like a car that wants to hit the road. That's why this one has recently been upgraded with nice driving features like power steering and power brakes. Plus, you also have a three-speed automatic transmission, wide Dunlop tires, and front disc brakes for a kind of package you can enjoy any time.



This is the '55 Bel Air convertible that has been restored for true distinction. So if you demand an upper-class cruising classic, don't miss this icon. Call now!
