A very well-presented and authentic package makes this 1955
Chevrolet Bel Air sedan an instant crowd pleaser. And its value
price for this V8 cruiser will have you grinning ear-to-ear.
This is the first year for the iconic Tri-Five Chevys, and the Bel
Air was the range-topper so people already love to see these
everywhere. It only gets better when it's finished in a two-tone
that's as iconic as a Coca-Cola bottle. The paint has a good shine
for the kind of car you want to drive. Plus, the fundamentals are
all in place, including straight body panels and complete trim. So
it's the kind of car you get to enjoy today, and you can always
upgrade it to show-stopper status if you ever so desire. After all,
there's arguably no better icon of the American road than a
Tri-Five Chevy with the big jet fighter hood ornament leading the
Inside is a classic blue and white theme with the right
presentation for a driver's classic. For example, the seats have a
comfy cloth inserts and the carpeting is particularly nice.
Everything you love about these icons are still in place. This
includes the artful steering wheel, fan-style gauge cluster, and
dual-cowl style dash that resembles the Corvettes of the era. But
the useful classic feeling comes back again with well integrated
upgrades, like the auxiliary gauge trio and retro-style AM/FM
digital tuner with cassette and aux input.
Part of what makes these cars a legend is that 1955 was the first
production year for the small block V8. The only optional
eight-cylinder in this inaugural year was the 265 cubic-inch motor,
and so when you open the hood, it's great to see this now-legendary
V8 looking so authentic. And while some of this looks untouched
since 1955, the way this one fires up and runs tells the story of a
well-respected and well-maintained Bel Air (we even have receipts
for a recent carb rebuilt.) Plus, as a true driver's classic you
have great anytime driving features, like power steering, modern
tires, a Powerglide automatic transmission, power brakes, and
upgraded drilled & slotted front discs.
When an iconic classic looks this complete, runs this nicely, and
is priced so well, you know you need to hurry to grab this deal.
