Description:

Our recipe for the ultimate street cruiser? Take one laser-straight old car like, say, this 1956 Chevy Bel Air. Coat it in the best paint job you can afford, give it an interior that a Cadillac would be jealous of, then stuff it full of Corvette-derived 427. Fast and beautiful, what a way to travel! Despite the incredibly straight bodywork and paint that''s deep enough to swim in, this is a low-profile car. No flames, no graphics, no gaudy body mods, not even a cowl-induction hood, it keeps the original design intact and lets the hardware do the talking. Starting with a high-quality southern car always helps, and that factory-original sheetmetal always fits together better when it doesn''t have patches and replacement pieces stitched in. Add a few months'' worth of fitting, aligning, sanding, filing, and buffing, and you might get something close to this car if you''re talented. Basic black always works, and with the dramatic Bel Air trim, it''s often better to let the color stay in the background, but that also means the chrome and stainless had better be right. So someone spent another sizeable pile of cash getting everything bright, straight, and sparkly. Tinted windows help with the intimidation factor and give the A/C an assist on hot days, too. The ''50s are still inside in spirit, but with a full array of creature comforts, this isn''t basic transportation anymore. Dark red fabric covers a split bench with armrest borrowed from a late-model and they look right in the ''56 passenger compartment. It would be hard to improve on the factory dash, so it was fully restored, including the bright trim band across the center, and all the gauges are fully functional, along with some auxiliary pieces underneath. The A/C has been neatly integrated under the dash, so it keeps a low profile, and a vintage GM steering wheel lives atop a tilt column. The original AM radio is long gone, so there''s an AM/FM/cassette stereo unit in its place, and seatbelts have been fitted throughout for safety. It''s still a practical machine, too, with a spacious, fully upholstered trunk that includes a full-sized spare with a matching cover. This Bel Air definitely brings the thunder, thanks to a 1969-vintage Corvette 427, but no factory big block ever ran like this. With an .030 overbore, a steel crank, Eagle rods, and forged high-compression pistons, it cackles like a full-race piece. An Edelbrock intake and aluminum heads shed weight, but thanks to a hydraulic cam, it''s totally streetable. Making approximately 600 horsepower, it''s positively invincible on the street. The transmission is a built TH400, flanked by a 3-inch Flowmaster exhaust system and feeding a Ford 9-inch with modest 3.50 gears inside. Corvette disc brakes with 4-piston calipers up front make it safe at the big end, and yes, those are genuine American Racing Torque Thrusts, not repros, wearing staggered BFG radials. This Bel Air represents a huge investment in the best of the best to create what might arguably be the nastiest ''56 Chevy we''ve ever featured. Insanely fast, yet beautifully finished, it''s the kind of rod that everyone will appreciate. Call today for all the details! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
