Description:

Few cars are more versatile than the shoebox Chevys, and as this brilliant 1955 Bel Air proves, they can be fast as well as comfortable with a style that''s recognized around the world. The styling was so perfect in 1955, the best customs don''t try to change much. This car retains all its original trim, which on the Bel Air models was considerable. The two-tone India Ivory over Skyline Blue color combination is definitely a product of the ''50s, but rendered in 21st century paint it delivers a shine that even the finest cars in 1955 couldn''t match. You can see from the photos that the panels are super straight, and judging from the undercarriage, this has never been a rusty car. With all that in mind, the best choice was simply to make the metalwork as sharp as possible then cover it with a show-quality paint job, and they''ve succeeded. Tinted windows give it a modern look, again without radical surgery, which is the hallmark of great customs. Add in restored brightwork and trim, and this is an extremely nice car. Seriously, there must be twenty grand tied up in chrome and stainless alone! Inside, the custom interior replaces sticky ''50s vinyl bench with slick custom buckets wrapped in turquoise leather and suede for a color-coordinated look. Matching door panels in the same materials with vertical stitching continue the vintage vibe, and thick carpets give the interior an upscale feel and help control noise and heat. The original dash has been restored and painted to match the body, with beautiful bright trim that looks like a million bucks, but the original gauges are gone, replaced by a set of custom pieces from Classic Instruments. Even the steering wheel is a custom piece designed to look like 1955, but wrapped in matching turquoise leather and sitting atop a tilt column. Accessories like A/C, power windows, cruise control, and a potent AM/FM/CD stereo have been added, all of which make this a no-compromises cruise that keeps the flavor of the original while making it feel modern from behind the wheel. Even the trunk is upholstered, showing that no detail on this car was overlooked. The biggest engine you could get in 1955 was a 265 cubic inch V8, but under the hood of this Bel Air today lives a fresh 350 cubic inch crate motor making an estimated 450 horsepower. With aluminum heads and lots of polished billet, it looks show-ready and runs superbly with a very aggressive hot-rod attitude. Fuel delivery is thanks to a Holley 4-barrel, and the exhaust is managed by a set of ceramic-coated long tube headers dumping into a pair of Flowmasters that sound amazing. Underneath there''s a 700R4 4-speed automatic spinning a 10-bolt rear, plus power disc brakes, power steering, and a fully rebuilt stock-style suspension. Beautifully finished and straddling the border between show piece and stock restoration, the chassis is impressive any way you look at it. Even the 17-inch billet wheels are right-sized and wear 225/50/17 front and 235/60/17 rear Goodyears for the perfect rake. This ''55 Chevy will never go out of style, and you''ll be hard-pressed to find a nicer one anywhere at any price. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
