This 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air is a well-presented coupe with a show-worthy correct two-tone, a classic V8 engine bay, and an inviting interior. It makes for quite an attractive package on an already irresistible Tri-Five hardtop.
We're told this car went through a full restoration about seven years ago, and you can tell it was commissioned and done by those who care. Neptune Green is the hardtop's factory-correct color combo. The secondary color was changed from Shoreline Beige to India Ivory, and we couldn't agree more with the upgrade. It gives you that bright white radiance that lets this high-quality car command the attention it deserves. Plus, white always looks terrific against whitewall tires. A lot of extra care was taken in giving the panels an excellent fit and finish. The brightwork is key on a tri-five Chevy cruiser, and investment kept them complete and bright. The iconic trim divides the two-tone, and the wraparound bumpers, wide grille, and jet-inspired hood ornament all have a mirror-like appearance of a well-prepared classic. It really is a beautifully detailed presentation, right down to the fender skirts.
The factory-correct green and beige are inside, and it makes for a tasteful style. Like the exterior, the restoration was all about getting the vintage vibe right. You see it in places like the bench seats that have the '50s-style look right down to the cloth inserts. A smooth double-hump dash, taut headliner, nice door panels, and plush carpeting all make this very inviting. The heater keeps you warm on those early mornings when you want to be first at the car show. You'll even appreciate the little details, like the clear gauges, working dome light, and AM radio is still cranking tunes. This hardtop is pure rolling nostalgia.
Under the hood is a vintage-style setup with the big air grabber and Chevrolet script valve covers. In fact, this 265 cubic-inch V8 is the year-correct block. That's important because the 1955 Chevy was the car that launched the small block legend, and a VC-code Bel Air had one right from the factory. As classic as this one is, the restoration was also about making sure it remains a quality cruiser. So when you look at the undercarriage, you not only see clean components, but these fresh pieces give you true driving confidence. And the strong-running V8, Powerglide automatic transmission, and a modern tread behind the classic whitewalls make it an easy cruiser.
Complete with restoration photos, this is the iconic classic Bel Air that has been given the right investments to be both a shining classic and a terrific cruiser. That makes for an irresistible V8 hardtop. Call today!!!
