The 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air is already an icon, but this restomod is
absolutely unforgettable. It's an amazing two tone presentation
that also has a custom A/C interior, overdrive transmission,
four-wheel disc brakes, and a Corvette's fuel injected V8.
You could get a red and white two-tone Chevy in '55, but this
presentation makes sure it announces it's something extra special.
The red is deep and shiny, and the white has a pearl finish that
just loves the sunlight. They also took the time to get this
bodywork correct before even the first drop of paint was laid down.
That means overall look of quality with the straightness of the
panels, the uniform look of the gaps, and doors that close solid.
All the brightwork looks like it has been expertly maintained to
make sure that the bumpers shine like mirrors. And the iconic trim
reminds us this is a jet-age classic. Plus, stylishly sporty
touches, like the wire wheels and bow tie exhaust tips, make sure
to offer the right amount of street machine style.
The interior is a thoughtful package that integrates the best
upgrades while still appearing quite vintage. For example, you have
two rows of classic-style bench seats. But they have a custom
pattern that looks and feels more luxurious. The same goes for the
side panels. The dash, carpeting, and headliner all follow this red
theme for a very sporty feeling inside. Plus, you get all the best
upgrades in comfort. There's a custom center console with cup
holders, retro-style AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette, upgraded
stereo speakers, and full air conditioning with modern R134a
refrigerant. The steering wheel has a classic look, but a sporty
feel. It's mounted on a tilt column that gives you a clear view to
the gauge cluster. And while you get the classic fan-style dash,
the upgraded gauge cluster now gives you a full view of what's
going on in the engine bay.
You're going to love lifting the hood at car shows. The 5.7-liter
LT1 motor proudly displays its Corvette heritage, and there was
also a big upgrade in polished components. This really deserves
plenty of flair because it tells a terrific story. After all, the
Tri-Five Chevys launched the small block era, and the fuel-injected
LT1 motor was part of its final evolution of the series. So this
restomod represents some very cool bookends. It's built with all
the right features - everything from an aluminum radiator
w/electric fan to headers feeding the dual exhaust. The four-speed
transmission was stout enough to handle the Corvette's power, and
it also delivers overdrive comfort. Add in power steering, a rear
sway bar, and four-wheel power disc brakes, and this is the classic
that drives as good as it looks.
This restomod has a great classic look with great powerful
upgrades. It's quite a unique build, and it even comes with this
Bel Air's original bill of sale. That makes for a total package
that you'll want to both show and drive. Call now!
