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 is an
absolute sleeper - a restomod that gives little hint to those
around it that it's not stock until you turn the key. This Bel Air
is pushed by a 454ci V8 bored to a 504ci tied to a 700R4 automatic
transmission. It fires up immediately and growls through its
quad-exhaust, telling those around it that its no normal '56. An
over-the-top restoration was completed on this Bel Air in 2016 and
nothing was left untouched. The frame was powder-coated, chasis
painted and every component of the undercarriage was detailed. Fuel
and brake lines were replaced with stainless steel lines and the
vehicle received a new stainless gas tank and new Hotchkiss front
and rear suspension. On the inside, the custom Italian leather
interior is unlike any other Bel Air on the market today. Inside
and out, this is a fantastic example of a highly drive-able
restomod '56 Bel Air that was designed and restored with nothing
but the finest attention to detail. Unless stated otherwise,
vehicle mileage on title is exempt and unknown if original.
