Welcome to Street Dreams Texas as we celebrate our 19th year in the classic and muscle car business. Tri-Five Chevrolet's (1955-1957) have enjoyed immense success and popularity from the moment they were new. With unmatched styling, performance, economy, and versatility, the '55-'57 Chevy's altered Chevrolet's 'stuffy' image forever. This elegant 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air (style# 1011D) is both an historically important automobile and an entertaining and comfortable cruiser thanks to its numerous upgrades. Residing under the hood is a 4-bolt 350 ci Chevy that's been treated to an Edelbrock Performer EPS aluminum intake manifold, an Edelbrock carburetor, Sanderson coated aluminum headers, a HD cross-flow aluminum radiator with twin SPAL electric fans, an HEI, and plenty of chrome and polish. The chassis has been fortified with new front coil springs, 2 drop spindles, Posie Teflon lined rear springs with 2 drop, new front and rear gas shocks, welded cross bar shock mount, front sway bar, a new balanced driveshaft, and a new exhaust system. Interior upgrades include leather upholstery, Classic gauges, billet dash molding, power steering with new pump, power front disc brakes, power windows, 700R4 automatic overdrive transmission, Panasonic stereo with CD, IDIDIT steering column, and a billet with leather steering wheel. The beautiful exterior features good Brandywine paint, new glass, new front and rear badging with hood bird, new mirrors and door handles, new grill and bumpers, and new Blue Dot tail lights. This sweetheart has too many goodies to fully list, but that's a start! Street Dreams is a full service dealership that can assist with worldwide delivery, low cost insurance, and great financing options.
