Bel Air 1956

Title Status --
Exterior Color Harbor Blue
Interior Color White


This 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air sedan is the icon with all the right upgrades. After all, it has the classic look you love with upgraded V8 power, an A/C interior, and a well-coordinated color package that's not afraid to hit the road. So if you're looking for a true cruiser, dig into this Tri-Five.

A '56 Chevy done in a two-tone always knows how to attract attention. This keeps close to the Harbor Blue and India Ivory of the era, but this is a more modern application that gives you plenty of gloss in the white and a terrific metallic in the blue. We love the '56 because it has a distinct grille for this year, and only the Bel Air got the streak of color running the full side. You can see it all so well thanks to a complete brightwork setup. There is plenty of cruiser style with the half-chrome headlights, large dual exhaust tips, and bright outlaw-style wheels. This all hints at a car that's made to drive. So that's how you should view the full package. It has all the right iconic pieces where you can shine them up for a good presentation, but from day one, you'll cruise out of this showroom and won't be nervous to take this on the open road.

Inside is an interior that coordinates with the exterior's two-tone. The exterior blue returns on the dash, steering wheel, and door tops. The white returns for a great 1950s cruiser tuck and roll style on the seats and matching door panels. Not only do the two wide bench seats give family and friends plenty of room to spread out, but also there's an upgraded AM/FM stereo and cold blowing R-134a air conditioning to keep them all happy. Plus, upgrades like column-mounted Sun Tach and Sunpro auxiliary gauges let you know this is a driver's classic.

While the Tri-Fives launched the small block V8 era, the 350 cubic-inch V8 under the hood here is larger than anything the factory was offering in '56. More than just an upgraded displacement, this also has an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, and headers feeding the dual exhaust. More than just powerful, a good driver means a solid presentation that includes good hoses and an aluminum radiator with an electric fan. A three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, wide modern tires, and power brakes w/discs up front mean that this upgraded classic is ready to enjoy on the road.

This is the cool Tri-Five that delivers on the look, power, features, and price. That makes for an irresistible package you need to get your hands on before someone else does. Call today!!!
