Bel Air 1956

Title Status --
Exterior Color Red
Interior Color White


This 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Sedan has a true vintage style and the correct V8 power. But because nostalgia is always supposed to be better than really was the first time around, this iconic classic now also comes with air conditioning!

The '56 Chevy has remained the enduring motoring icon because of how well it represented what we wanted in the 1950s - bright colors, plenty of chrome, and rocket-inspired designs. And this one does it best. First and foremost is the two-tone. The red and white are the period correct colors that they have a good shine to know how to attract attention. There are the best classic pieces, like the rear fender skirts and the classic whitewall tires that are part of this pure vintage package. And of course, these Tri-Five Chevys are known for their brightwork. Shining bumpers, correct wheel covers, and the special '56 grille are all looking good. Plus, the full trim package is complete. That's important on a '56 Bel Air because they were the only ones to get that full-length streak that lets the two-tone run up the body in such a sporty style.

The white and red continue inside, and now it's joined by a tasteful tan. In fact, the color of the carpeting, door panels, and textured seat inserts all look like you mixed the red and white together, so it's a very harmonious style. The button-top seating, artful Bel Air steering wheel, and a bright dash with the sporty dual cowl design are all part of that great classic feeling. And a car like this is one you're going to want to drive. That's why you'll notice that this now has a Vintage Air A/C system with plenty of vents cleanly installed under the dash. There are even USB plug-ins in case you want to bring modern music players for the best all-day driving tunes.

Part of what makes these cars a legend is that the Tri-Fives were the ones to introduce the Chevy small block V8. So you'll be happy to lift the hood and see a 265 cubic-inch V8 with a Carter four-barrel carburetor on top. And while details like the air grabber and valve covers look stock, you can also see they made investments in the right places. This includes an upgrade to a 12-volt electrical system that allows for the newer alternator and electric cooling fan. That makes for an improved cruiser, and the way this V8 fires up lets you know it's eager to hit the road. And while this Bel Air has some upgrades, it still wants you to have the classic feeling when driving - right down to the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and service manuals. This is the V8 Bel Air that is roomy enough for the whole family, and it even has the A/C to keep them all comfortable. It's time to drive a legend, call today!
