For Sale at Auction: 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air in Scottsdale, Arizona

Auction Vehicle  

Vehicle Description

Chevrolet spent an astounding $40 million to restyle and reengineer its line for 1956. After advertising the innovative 1955 Chevrolet as "The Hot One," the division claimed the '56 models were even hotter, and buyers agreed. The earlier model's squarish, conservative features gave way to flowing lines emphasized by arching body-side moldings and recontoured wheel well openings. A full-width front grille with integrated turn signals and generous chrome made for a wider look, and two-tone paint schemes added more of the glamour and flash demanded by the motoring public. The product of a frame-off restoration to original condition completed in 2014 with just test mileage since its completion, this 1956 Bel Air convertible shows caring attention to authenticity and detail. This extends to such features as correct Red Oxide undercarriage paint, date-coded EZ-Eye glass and powder-coating the frame for durability. The car retains its entire original drivetrain, including the Power Pack 265/205hp small-block V8 engine and Powerglide 2-speed automatic transmission. Finished in two-tone Sierra Gold and Adobe Beige base coat/clear coat with a matching interior, it is generously equipped with power steering and brakes, a power convertible top and top boot cover, dealer-installed factory air conditioning, front and rear bumper guards, wide whitewall tires, full-size wheel covers and the original AM radio. From the Raser Collection.
