1955 Chevrolet Bel Air
Imagine a car so popular that a new term came to be, based on that
design. That name is Tri-Five, which refers to 1955, 1956, and 1957
Chevrolet automobiles, in particular the Bel Air, 150, 210 Sedans,
and the Nomad. With beautiful proportions and new skins each of
those successive years, and a thorough peppering of chrome, these
cars produced in this time became iconic. From all original to
highly modified versions, many Tri-Five clubs have sprung up to
showcase individuality, originality, and the beloved Chevrolet
concepts of Harley Earl and his team.
This gorgeous 1955 Tri Five is truly immaculate. One must go over
it with a fine-tooth comb to find any fault with this spotless
restoration. Since that time, the consigner states that the car was
never driven in the winter or bad weather and laying your eyes on
this you will believe it!
A two-door hardtop with factory straight panels, and gaps to match,
makes use of the steel and a few areas of detectable filler, but a
nice job was done overall. PPG base coat and clear coat cover the
Gypsy Red highlighted by Shoreline Beige. New weather stripping, a
new windshield, and dual mirrors were put on during the
restoration. New bumpers, and new grille in front is framed by 2
LED modern headlamps. Badging is correct as well as aluminum
brightwork. Pristine would best describe this exterior overall.

flawless period style benches sitting in a calm ocean of red
carpet. Rubber matching floor mats are protecting the carpet
underneath. The Iconic Chevrolet 2 bump dash in red with a pattern
cut bowtie repetition in aluminum cuts through the center. Both
glovebox and instrument cluster "fan shapes" reside under the bumps
in the metal dash. Steering wheel is a new 15" wheel and has no
cracks or faults. The headliner is pristine, and all interior
A 350ci crate motor bolted to a T.H. 350 automatic transmission
shows an aluminum pan, and flywheel cover. Power is transferred to
the rear wheels thanks to a 3.55:1 differential. The mill inhales
through a K&N air cleaner, and exhales through Jet coated
headers, and a 2-1/2" exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers. Polished
valve covers make the power plant gleam in the pristine engine bay.
Consigner states that front suspension is all new, as well as a
front sway bar. Power brakes have been put on for extra safety.
A very nicely restored to a tasteful color combination Chevrolet
first year Tri Five. Modifications are big, but curb appeal yields
an almost original looking example. Well cared for, this favorite
toy was well played with, but put away nicely for the next
