Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
A very well-presented and authentic package makes this 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible an instant crowd pleaser. This restored icon has a beautifully coordinated color theme inside and out, and it has the right V8 power under the hood. So you know it's exceptionally appealing even before you check out all the details.
This was born an ultra-desirable Onyx Black car, and proper investment during the restoration means it's a striking look today. It has the kind of deep luster that you'll love to see every time you take this out for a sunny day cruise. But we all know the best shine comes from all that chrome and stainless trim. The bumpers are mirror-like, the light bezels are intricate, and 1956's exclusive grille is proudly displayed. The '56 Bel Air had the unique style shared with no other Tri-Five where it rocketed up the side to make the car look sleeker and faster. So not only do we love that this trim looks excellent, but also that they took the time to get the body looking so good that it's like one unbroken piece through the door line. Whitewall tires are a must on a period-correct classic like this but, you'll also see that they are also part of a thoughtfully coordinated total package.
The black convertible top fits snugly for a quality look, and with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal an attractive color theme interior. There's a white convertible boot that matches the upholstery and is a bridge to the whitewalls on the outside. The black returns inside to accent the doors and dash. Plus, a mid-point between the two colors is the charcoal gray on the carpeting and seat inserts. If that reads a bit complicated, you can just see how stylish it is in the pics. Plus, it's exceptionally practical (after all, dark inserts in the doors and seats means you're not constantly worried about the dust on other passenger's clothes and shoes.) The whole setup looks authentic, right down to the button-top pattern on the seatbacks. Slipping behind the wheel feels like slipping back in time thanks to the Bel Air's stylized steering wheel, classic dual cowl dash w/crisply bright trim, and even the clock is working. So you can tell they took the time to get it right on this special Bel Air.
Part of what makes these cars a legend is that the Tri-Fives introduced us to the small block V8. The VIN tag tells us this was born a V8 car, and the 265 cubic-inch block even decodes to the era-correct motor. So you can talk all about its history while you show off such a well restored and accurate engine bay. While the excellent presentation of the bold orange paint and all the correct components will impress people at the shows, this one is built to be enjoyed on the road, too. That's why you have a Powerglide automatic transmission and a restored chassis that inspires confidence on the road.
Complete with the owner's manual, when an iconic drop-top looks this good and was restored to be so authentic, you know you need to hurry to grab this deal. Call today!!!
