800 Derita Road, Ste. A
The 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air is already an icon, but this restomod is absolutely unforgettable. It's an amazing two tone presentation that also has a custom A/C interior, overdrive transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, and a Corvette's fuel injected V8.
You could get a red and white two-tone Chevy in '55, but this presentation makes sure it announces it's something extra special. The red is deep and shiny, and the white has a pearl finish that just loves the sunlight. They also took the time to get this bodywork correct before even the first drop of paint was laid down. That means overall look of quality with the straightness of the panels, the uniform look of the gaps, and doors that close solid. All the brightwork looks like it has been expertly maintained to make sure that the bumpers shine like mirrors. And the iconic trim reminds us this is a jet-age classic. Plus, stylishly sporty touches, like the wire wheels and bow tie exhaust tips, make sure to offer the right amount of street machine style.
The interior is a thoughtful package that integrates the best upgrades while still appearing quite vintage. For example, you have two rows of classic-style bench seats. But they have a custom pattern that looks and feels more luxurious. The same goes for the side panels. The dash, carpeting, and headliner all follow this red theme for a very sporty feeling inside. Plus, you get all the best upgrades in comfort. There's a custom center console with cup holders, retro-style AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette, upgraded stereo speakers, and full air conditioning with modern R134a refrigerant. The steering wheel has a classic look, but a sporty feel. It's mounted on a tilt column that gives you a clear view to the gauge cluster. And while you get the classic fan-style dash, the upgraded gauge cluster now gives you a full view of what's going on in the engine bay.
You're going to love lifting the hood at car shows. The 5.7-liter LT1 motor proudly displays its Corvette heritage, and there was also a big upgrade in polished components. This really deserves plenty of flair because it tells a terrific story. After all, the Tri-Five Chevys launched the small block era, and the fuel-injected LT1 motor was part of its final evolution of the series. So this restomod represents some very cool bookends. It's built with all the right features - everything from an aluminum radiator w/electric fan to headers feeding the dual exhaust. The four-speed transmission was stout enough to handle the Corvette's power, and it also delivers overdrive comfort. Add in power steering, a rear sway bar, and four-wheel power disc brakes, and this is the classic that drives as good as it looks.
This restomod has a great classic look with great powerful upgrades. It's quite a unique build, and it even comes with this Bel Air's original bill of sale. That makes for a total package that you'll want to both show and drive. Call now!
