In 1955, the Bel Air received a total redesign. With clean lines
and sports car inspired design, the Bel Air had wide consumer
appeal. The first successful offering of a V8 by Chevrolet, the Bel
Air's performance Was widely recognized as superior in '55. The '55
model-year marked a renaissance for the Bel Air name and greatly
enhanced America's love for Chevrolet cars.
This 1955 Bel Air, the result of a frame-off restoration, is a fantastic looking convertible. With its Gypsy Red over Shoreline Beige exterior with matching interior, the car catches the eye of anyone who sees it. Powered by a 265ci V8 with Power Pack tied to a 2-speed automatic transmission, this Bel Air is a joy to drive. With power steering, power brakes and power convertible top, the car is very well equipped. If you are looking for a fantastic Bel Air that you can show and also drive and enjoy, this is it.
