Are you exhausted from the hustle and bustle of this world? Tired of Facebook and Twitter? Well, here is your escape from all that, and your ticket to descend to a simpler time. A time when people got along, enjoyed simple things, and loved life. A time that was composed of pride in everything you did and displaying remarkable style. This car exemplifies just that. Style. One glance at this 1956 Chevrolet Belair Convertible and you will be transcended to a humbler time. Maybe you will even faintly hear Sinatra in the background as you sit in the seat of this iconic car. With every curve perfectly massaged these cars displayed the greatest example of automobile style in American history. Adorned with perfectly complemented Silver and White paint against lavish chrome garnishes, this car showing just 84,338 miles is unequivocally beautiful, and a true bookmark of time gone by. This celebrated car has many original parts as well as some tasteful upgrades to its exterior and power plant. This vehicle is powered by an elegant chrome detailed 400 H.P. engine donning two 4 barrel Edelbrock carburetors, Edelbrock air cleaner, chromed Chevy aluminum valve covers, duel exhaust, and a 350 turbo automatic transmission with column shift. A newly replaced fuel pump completes this already smooth performing vehicle. The exterior has been allotted some minor improvements to an already lavish looking car with near perfect chrome. Improvements include new aftermarket original appearance tail lights, all new windows and chrome surrounds, Cragar SS Wheels, and BF Goodrich P225/70/R15 tires. As you turn your attention to the interior you will admire the off-white vinyl seats with perfectly incorporated black cloth design inserts adding to the luster of the car. You will find newly replaced sun visors, under dash gauges and tachometer, and an aftermarket AM/FM/Cassette radio for listening to Ol’ Blue Eyes. No matter what it is you want to escape, this car will put in a 50’s frame of mind.
