Bel Air 1955

Interior Color Burgundy


You already know how much of an icon the Tri-Five Chevys are, so imagine our delight when this lovely 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air showed up with classic two-tone paint, a performance V8, and cool rare features like the power windows to show off the hardtop profile.

This car is striking a balance between iconic classic and all-out hot rod, and the paint starts off this impression perfectly. The burgundy paint is a modern application with a terrific hint of metallic. So you get both depth and radiance every time the sunshine finds the sheetmetal. The contrasting bright white adds instant distinction to make sure everyone recognizes the desirable two-tone. These Bel Airs really got their trim right as it's used to emphasize the best features of the coupe - such as a dividing line for the two-tone and a bright way to highlight the pillarless hardtop profile. Plus, the front chrome king bumper is fresh to give off mirror-like shine. Plus, those 15-inch Weld Racing wheels, forward-leaning stance, and large dual exhaust tips hint at the performance upgrades beneath the skin.

The interior continues the burgundy and white two-tone theme. They took time to create a comfortable experience on the crisp vinyl bench seats, matching door panels, good carpeting, and a distinct cloth headliner. It's the kind of look that you'll love to share with the world, and it's easy to get a view when you take down all the windows of this hardtop. In fact, we don't often see power windows in a '55 Chevy, but they are especially welcomed here. After all, it means you don't even have to leave the driver's seat to take down all the glass. In fact, there are some more worthwhile upgrades that makes this a great driver. The AM/FM/CD stereo and upgraded speaker w/subwoofer give you better cruising music. And the tilt steering column, full digital gauges, and B&M Quicksilver floor shifter make this classic a more modern driver.

The '55 Chevy launched the small block era at Chevrolet, but they were never offered anything nearly as potent as this. It's a late model vortec roller engine. The 350 cubic-inch V8 has a clean look and some added shine form the Chevrolet valve covers and matching air topper. But what you'll really like is how this is built with quality performance pieces, including a Holley four-barrel carburetor, GM aluminum intake, MSD ignition, and headers feeding the dual exhaust. It's a powerful setup that's built to be all-around fun. That's why you have features like power steering, power brakes w/front discs, TH350 three speed automatic transmission, and the grip of modern wide BF Goodrich T/As.

This one has added flair on the outside, great added features on the inside, and plenty of power added under the hood. So you know it makes for a well-done icon made for driving. Call today!!!
