1955 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 description
1955 Chevrolet Bel Air
This is a genuine Bel Air and this is supported by the letter “C” in the VIN.
This beautiful car is the product of an aggressive restoration effort.
The car has logged less than 1,000 miles since completion.
The car is powered by 454 cubic-inch V8 that is paired to a Turbo 400 automatic transmission, both of which were rebuilt before being implanted into the car.
Less than 2 years ago, the car was professionally refinished in black and, as you can see, it’s gorgeous!
It addition to being refinished, the car was gifted numerous new trim pieces, including chrome front and rear bumpers, light surrounds, grille, and hood ornament.
Some original parts remain on the car, including the side and rear glass and some minor trim pieces.
The windshield is new.
The car rolls smoothly on brand new, chrome Rev wheels that are wrapped in brand new Toyo tires. The front wheels are 17 inches in diameter while the rear wheels are 18 inches in diameter.
The interior of the car is home to clean black vinyl and a black carpet floor covering. The original dash holds the original gauges and controls along with a modern stereo head unit that resembles the original stereo.
The trunk of the car shows well with a black carpet floor covering. The trunk also contains a new battery.
Before the car was restored, it was very solid and it remains so. The underside of the car is solid and structural integrity is a non-issue. Yes, the floor pans are solid. This car has never modified or altered for duty as a drag car or anything of that nature.
The car runs, rides, and drives great. It stops well and steers well. The car fires without hassle after a quick turn of the key. The 454 emits healthy sounds that only be delivered by a big block. As you can likely imagine, it draws attention from on-lookers of all ages! This timeless color scheme is unbeatable.
The previous owner owned the car for 25 years.
