For Sale: 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air in Palos Verdes Estates, California


Vehicle Description

BEST COAST '56!!  

This is a California car that was owned by the mother of a CHP officer - then garaged when he took away the keys.  It was an excellent driver before a total restoration done in 2005 by current owner.  This cool SoCal car has been shown on occasion (crowd favorite at the Orange County Fairgrounds Cruise-in year after year!)  Restoration done by Ed Duffy of Duffy's Old Cars, Costa Mesa, CA.  

This '56 has been maintained meticulously since restoration; not a drop of rain has fallen on this beautiful paint job and chrome...only 6,300 miles on the new engine! Custom Red & Tan Coco mats for beach days.
