The Chevrolet Bel Air was all new for 1955 and featured numerous changes over the outgoing model. Rear fins and sharper angles replaced the rounder lines of the first-generation Bel Air, and the car’s new bodywork was accentuated by a large helping of chrome trim. Perhaps the most celebrated changes came under the hood, as Chevrolet added a V8 engine option to give their buyers the necessary horsepower to go along with the Bel Air’s new looks. It was an immediate success, and the Bel Air became the best-selling American car of 1955, with nearly 771,000 examples being produced.
A professional rotisserie restoration with only 1,000 miles since restoration. It is powered by a 265ci V8 Engine with a 2-speed Powerglide automatic transmission. The features include power convertible top, power steering, hockey stick chrome trim, windshield washer, dual outside mirrors and stone guard fender skirts. It won the best original restored at Frank Moratta's Auto & Race-A-Rama Show in Springfield, Massachusetts. It comes with a folder full of receipts and restoration pictures. As nice as they come. 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible
