4610 Pet Lane
This 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air has all the awesome classic-style everywhere you want from the hardtop profile, to the V8 under the hood. But as you look over the whole car, there's also the custom details (especially the interior) that make it desirable even beyond its iconic status.
The Tri-Five Chevys are a true legend, and this one is the exact reason why. 1955 was the first year for the styling, and everybody looks for a Bel Air with the stylish pillarless hardtop profile. Of course, it only gets better on a two-tone example that correctly utilizes the premium Bel Air's trim to give the red and white a nice dividing line. And because this gets the look right, they also knew to give it a proper shine. That means bumpers that catch the light nicely, a modern clearcoat luster in the paint, and even an upgrade to polished Chevy Rally wheels. So overall, it has a straight and vintage look that will be a true hit at the next cruise-in.
The two-tone theme continues inside, but while the colors are vintage, there are also unmistakable upgrades. After all, you never could never get the comfort of front bucket seats in a '55 Bel Air. These not only have modern bolstering, but also they power adjust to your ideal position. There's even a center console in-between. The rear seat was done to match, the carpeting is fresh, and the door panels are taut. So you get the feeling of quality that you want in a nice cruiser. And while this is upgraded, it also never loses its vintage charm. There's a special tingle you get from grabbing the large and grippy dual-spoke steering wheel and looking out over the Corvette-like dual cowl dash.
The VIN has this born a VC-code V8 car. That's particularly important, because the '55 Chevy launched the now-famous small block motor. And since this hardtop has such a great connection to history, it's great to have an era-correct 265 cubic-inch V8 under the hood. You even have the a proper automatic transmission. While this has quite an honest presentation, right down to the air cleaner, there are also the right additions. Upgrades like power brakes, electronic ignition, alternator, and aluminum radiator are all there to help keep this a good cruiser for modern times.
This is an absolute icon, and it has been correctly presented so that even the upgrades fit in with its cruiser attitude. So if you love a legend that offers a little extra, call today!
