Solid small block power, four-on-the-floor, four-wheel disc brakes, and other driver-ready upgrades all come together on this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air. So when you also have an awesome color combo, it really makes for a great classic for those who like to get out and enjoy the streets.
The two-tone is a great way to show you appreciate vintage style but that this is also an upgraded machine. After all, the factory never offered a black and purple combo, but these colors still utilize the factory time to provide a shining dividing line. And of course, the grille, full window trim, jet-like hood ornament, and wraparound chrome bumpers give you a great-looking brightwork package. But included in that shine are also the Weld racing wheels with meaty rear tires that give this such a nice stance. Overall, this is the right kind of car when you want to have an impressive machine that's also really to hit the road. The finish has that right mix of nothing too fancy while also radiating a ton of shine. And as you dig into the rest of the details, you really see the kind of car built for those who like to spend the weekend enjoying their classic.
The full black goes well with the exterior, and also makes this Bel Air feel like it wants to get down to some speedy business. That feeling is absolutely furthered by driver-friendly features, like the artful sports steering wheel on the tilt column, Hurst floor shifter, an auxiliary readout trio, and a handy AutoMeter Sport-Comp Monster tach prominently mounted on top of the dash. And while this is a true driver, you'll also appreciate the details like good carpeting, taut headliner, clean upholstery, working under dash lights, and the little things that make for a quality classic.
The engine bay shows off the heart of this driver-style package. The 350 cubic inch V8 has a tidy style, and plenty of flair from polished components like valve covers, air topper, alternator, and more. But beyond style is substance. The V8 is also built with Summit four-barrel carburetor, Summit intake, and Hedman headers feeding the dual exhaust. This also has the right supporting pieces, like an aluminum radiator, an MSD ignition, and the battery moved to the trunk for better weight distribution. This V8 is a strong runner, and you have proper control over it with the four-speed manual transmission. And speaking of control, this has power steering, rear traction bars, wide BF Goodrich tires, and the upgraded stopping power of four-wheel disc brakes. And good rear-end gearing lets this one cruise easily near or far.
This is a two-tone, first-year Tri-Five built with the driving features you want. So don't let this upgraded icon slip away. Call today!!!
