For Sale: 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air in Concord, North Carolina

$59,995  

Vehicle Description

The 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air hardtop is at the top of many lists for the coolest American cruiser. So when you're looking for a true head-turner that also gets your heart pumping, this is the one you want. With shining paint, upgraded V8 power, four-on-the-floor, and A/C interior and much more, this is an icon restored to be the total package.

This coupe grabs all the right attention. The two-tone red and silver is a distinctive color combination that has a vibrant style, and this later application gives a deep gloss and shine. And the investment in this one went far more than just paint. The Bel Air was the range-topper with plenty of chrome and stainless trim. So you want an example that is as clean, complete, and shining as this one. That way you can proudly show off the wraparound bumpers, jet-like hood ornament, wide grille, and the intricate side trim that provides a clean dividing line for the two-tone. While that gives this the right classic style, there's something more here. Those 17-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels fill the wheel wells with intimidation. They're a clear indication this classy classic has some performance chops.

The red and silver theme continues inside. This upgrade adds extra comfort but doesn't lose the vintage look. You'll see it best at the vinyl seats that have the cool tuck and roll pattern. And the side panels are even done to match. It's a thoughtful presentation right down to details, like the bright dash and working dome lights. And this full uniform quality look is exactly what people love to see at the car shows. So this is a great one for rolling down all the windows of this pillarless hardtop to let people get a better look inside. It's built to be a more comfortable cruiser with well-placed upgrades like the retro-style AM/FM digital tuner and the cold blowing R134a air conditioning. It's also upgraded to be a better driver with thoughtfully placed pieces, like the classic horizontal tach and a smaller diameter steering wheel that's made to look stock. There's even a full set of auxiliary gauges and a Hurst shifter.

The engine bay likes to impress, too. Smooth inner walls, bright components, and an overall tidy setup make it ready to show off. You'll even like the details, like the finned valve covers with red inserts and a matching air topper. We love the '55 Chevy for launching the small block V8 era, and this one celebrates its powerful nature with a 327 cubic-inch motor. It has performance pieces like a four-barrel carburetor, upgraded intake, and a great tune from the X-pipe dual exhaust. Plus, you get firm control over it all thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. The full package was done with the right supporting components, like upgraded pulleys, an Optima red top battery, and an electric fan. That tells you this one was built for cruising. That feeling is furthered by power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide modern tires.

There's less than 6k miles on this Bel Air since its restoration, and the quality really shows. It's the iconic classic that checks all your boxes for power, comfort, and style. That's why this one is so irresistible. Call now!
