Chevrolet's most iconic car ever produced, the Bel Air was offered
for nearly 25-years in the United States. The 1956 Bel Air was the
second year of production of the vehicle's second-generation
design. With a face-lift from the 1955 model, the 1956 Bel Air had
a more desirable appearance with a full-width grill, two-tone
bodyside options, less edgy front and rear wheel openings and
headlights and taillights encased in single housings. The 1956
model year served as the stepping stone to what would become the
most dramatic styling change in 1957.
This 1956 Bel Air Convertible is a stunning frame-off restored car. From the moment the gleaming black and ivory straight body exterior and fantastic chrome brightwork catches your eye, you can't help but fall in love with this car. Open the power white convertible top and you find an interior that matches the quality of the exterior. Two-tone matching black and ivory seating is carried through to the black dashboard with beautiful stainless accents. Fire up the correct 265ci V8, tied to an automatic transmission, and this Bel Air glides down the road with ease. Power windows round out this tremendous vehicle. If you are seeking an investment-grade Bel Air that is also an absolute joy to drive, this is one of the best examples available for sale today.
