Immaculate, Modernized 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible
The next amazing classic up for grabs in our Fairfield showroom is this gorgeous 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air 2 Door Convertiblewith signature two-tone Gypsy Red and India Ivory exterior paint, staggered wheels, a beautiful white soft top and a matching red/white upholstered interior. You'll find a brand new GM 5.3L fuel-injected V-8 engine under the hood with a new GM 4L60E 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission, a Ford 9" differential with 3:73 gear ratio, an all-new modern suspension with four-wheel disc brakes, plus convenience features like power steering, air conditioning, tilt steering, Dakota digital gauges, a reproduction radio and so much more.
This incredible 1955 Chevy Bel Air Convertible underwent a complete frame-off restoration in recent years to become a powerful modern vehicle with a bone-stock appearance- the description and photographs simply do not do this one enough justice.
Built Above & Beyond Typical Show Quality Standards
The current owner of this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible took possession back in 2018 and almost immediately started a multi-year restoration effort that started with removing the frame, reinforcing and powder coating the frame plus replacing all the major mechanicals throughout to create a modern showstopper. No expense was spared in this extensive build with all new wiring, an upgraded suspension and a brand-new modern drivetrain with an in-frame exhaust and so much more- it starts, drives, handles and stops like a modern convertible.
The exterior of this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Roadster shows great with beautiful two-tone paint, excellent chrome work and flawless trim. All the body panels align properly and rest on staggered 8" front wheels with 9" wheels in the rear. Due to the sensational build quality, the exterior gives the appearance of a completely stock '55 Chevy with proper badging, lights, front grill and trim pieces with an excellent convertible top, whitewall tires, and chrome hubcaps. This is a picture-perfect classic example that really turns some heads on the open road.
Meanwhile, the interior of this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible is also highly correct besides the additions of air conditioning and Dakota gauges. The bench seating is plush and very comfortable on drives and tilt steering makes getting comfortable more convenient for taller or even shorter drivers. The door paneling, carpet, and dash trim are all finished at very high levels as well to provide a stock appearance while also adding many creature comforts. With great acceleration and excellent overall handling, this classic can be driven all day in comfort and style.
Completely Stock Appearance w/ Fully Modern Drivetrain
Overall, this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible is a true masterpiece that combines the best of old-school nostalgia and modern mechanical engineering. This example could be driven cross-country and back today without thinking twice about it; it must be seen in person to truly appreciate because this may well be one of the finest heart-stopping examples in the country at this time.
