For Sale at Auction: 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air in Scottsdale, Arizona

Auction Vehicle  

Vehicle Description

It is certainly not impossible to locate a nice 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible, but to find a fully restored, two-owner, highly optioned convertible that has remained within 30 miles of where it was sold new is practically unheard of after 60 years. This lustrous onyx black Bel Air was sold new at Sunset Chevrolet in The Dalles, OR, to its first owner, who tenderly cared for the car for 21 years. In 1976 it was sold in close by Hood River, OR, to its second owner, who periodically drove the car for several years and decided to do a full restoration in 1983. The second owner kept the car for 39 years and in 2015 sold the Bel Air to a recognized classic car dealership in Portland, OR. The dealership proceeded to rejuvenate the Bel Air once again with a complete tune-up, new fluids, minor mechanical repairs and over 200 hours of cosmetic detailing to the entire car from top to bottom. The result: A time capsule Bel Air in great condition that features all its original factory drivetrain components. The rebuilt 265ci Power Pack small-block V8 engine is mated to a Powerglide 2-speed automatic transmission. The exterior features a deluxe chrome package and deluxe Continental kit on the rear bumper. Lowering the power convertible top reveals a two-tone red and beige upholstered interior loaded with factory options like power windows, power steering and Wonder Bar radio. This example of the all-new-for-1955 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible has been well cared for its entire life. From the Raser Collection.
