Vehicle Description

1956 Chevrolet BelAir

One of the most iconic classic cars ever created has to be the tri five Chevrolet BelAirs. This set of cars is one of the most easily identified classics on the road. This 1956 is a nice example of one of these cars and has been entirely rebuilt. Thousands of hours and dollars was put into the body alone to remove any evidence of rust and prep it for the very nice Silver and Black color combo. The bumpers and the trim piece around the the chrome grill has been painted Silver to match the body giving it a unique look. The side trim and windshield trim is still polished and shines very nicely with no pitting or issues. All of the glass even the quarter windows has been replaced with OEM tinted glass. A nice addition to the car is the 3rd brake light mounted to the trunk lid which was created out of a 50s era Chevrolet emblem. The taillights have also been modified with Amber lenses for the turn signals instead of the factory clear ones. Up front it has halogen headlights with the halo ring. It has even been fitted with turn signal indicators in OEM style side mirrors. The stance of the car is great and it rides around on custom 15 inch 6 spoke wheels which incorporate Black and Silver to match the body.

The car is a factory V8 BelAir but is now sporting a Jasper rebuilt 350 small block V8. It has been fitted with an Edelbrock 600cfm carburetor with electric choke, a GM electronic ignition distributor, Edelbrock valve covers and a custom air cleaner. Just because you are driving a classic doesn't mean you have to sacrifice comfort so this car was upgraded with a Vintage AC kit and power brakes. The brake booster and master cylinder are all chrome and discs have also been added up front. The wiring was completely redone with an aftermarket harness and all new fuse panel. The transmission is a 700R4 from Monster Transmissions and it transfers power back to the 1967 Camaro 10 bolt true posi rear end.

The interior features Black upholstery with custom aluminum door panels. The high back swivel bucket seats are out of a 76 Laguna S3 and the rear bench is original to the car. Mounted to the floor is a B&M t-handle automatic Megashifter which moves through the gears with ease. In front of the driver sits a Flaming River tilt steering column with an aftermarket wood grain steering wheel. Another nice upgrade includes the Flaming River cruise control system. The dash of the car is painted in a nice two tone to match the exterior and features Dakota Digital analog gauges.

This is a great running 56 that has been totally reworked to make it run down the road just as good as it looks. With a lot of modern upgrades you may look like you are in a 50s classic but will driving much more smoothly than they did originally. These things don't stay up for sale very long so check it out while it is still available.
