For Sale: 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air in Volo, Illinois

Vehicle Description

9800 miles on a 10 year old, total frame-off, high quality custom restoration that looks like it was completed yesterday! Drives incredible. Old air and very comfortable.

EXTERIOR: This car was stripped to a bare shell and a bare frame and rebuilt from there. The body is completely rust-free and shows no sign of replaced panels or patches. It was painted inside and out. The body is arrow straight and the paint is nearly flawless and sanded / buffed to a high gloss. Jambs are meticulously painted and feature new weather stripping. All the chrome and trim has been restored or replaced with new. Has new glass and is lightly smoked. The rear bumper was replaced with a Nomad bumper allowing the license plate to be relocated to the bumper and removed from the trunk for a cleaner finish. The rear trunk emblem had been modified into a custom 3rd taillight. The car was lowered to give it a very nice stance. Has polished Billet Specialties Wheels. The white and yellow combination is like a ray of sunshine, it is simply clean and crisp.

INTERIOR: The interior in this car is simply amazing, I don't even know where to start. Sitting in the car is like sitting in a doctors office, everything is white, polished, spotless and sanitary. It is very refreshing! The dash and all the bare metal parts were repainted with a satin white finish. The gauges were all replaced with with digital, including the passenger side clock. A polished aluminum panel was added to the dash for a custom look and allowed for a relocation of the radio. It has the factory heater controls which also operate the new air conditioning system. No aftermarket under-dash or in the glove box switches. Has a very high-end custom built console made of painted metal and matching upholstery that features a concert sounding Alpine CD stereo, B&M console shifter and an artistic arm rest. The front seats are amazingly comfortable, power drivers seat. The rear seat features a center arm rest with cup holders, console and trunk access. Rear seat belts for the kids. Custom molded door panels with billet handles, molded headliner. Everything inside, including the window frames, are wrapped in matching leather and vinyl. Custom stitched off-white carpet.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Engine bay is highly detailed. The firewall is smoothened and painted with the same care as the body. The inner fenders are painted with a gun, the entire front suspension was taken apart, rebuilt and restored. All the wiring and hoses were ran neatly and hidden for a clean appearance. Has an aluminum radiator, billet accessories dress up the 350-375 HP engine. Engine has aluminum intake an Sanderson headers and electric ignition. Underside of hood is painted yellow to match. All the hardware is clean hardware and not painted over.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: The trunk compartment is highly detailed matching the interior. It has been boxed with matching molded white upholstery and white carpet. Even the underside of the trunk lid has been upholstered. Jambs are painted and feature new weather stripping.

UNDERSIDE: This is where the car really shines, quite literally! The entire underside of the body was painted yellow with the same care as the topside. Stripped to bare metal, primed and painted. You can see every seam, every spot weld, there is NO rust, no undercoat! Even the braces that typically are replaced show the factory spot welds! The insides of the rear quarters are painted yellow and show no patchwork. The floors can be waxed, and probably have been! The frame was boxed and smoothened for finished look, the frame was painted gloss black with a gun. Everything under the car was replaced, aluminized exhaust, leaf springs, has a 12 bolt rear-end, all the fuel and brake lines, parking brake cables and hardware. The gas tank was yellow with a gun, the TH350 transmission is dressed up with chrome trans pan, The front suspension has all been rebuilt and converted to disk brakes, Aluminum finned trans cooler.

This was a no-expense spared custom build. Its one thing to look amazing when its freshly built but this car has stood the test of time, after 10 years and with 9800 miles there are no bubbles, no cracks, and almost no signs of aging. With 9800 miles all the restoration bugs have also been worked out! You can buy this car with the greatest confidence!
