For Sale: 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air in Lavergne, Tennessee

$98,995  

Vehicle Description

Attention classic car drivers, this iconic 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible was restored just for you! It not only has an awesome factory-correct color theme, but it also has all the great features you want like air conditioning, disc brakes, Bluetooth radio, and an overdrive transmission. And under the hood is a well-built crate V8 with less than 500 miles on it.

This was born an ultra-desirable Onyx Black car, and proper investment during the restoration means it's a striking look today. It has the kind of deep luster that you'll love to see every time you take this out for a sunny-day cruise. But we all know the best shine comes from all that chrome and stainless trim. People often have problems finding the right pieces for a '55, so we get excited when it's mirror-like and complete just how it is on this convertible. It's a detail-oriented look, right down to the fender skirts. They also made improvements all over this car during the restoration, but all the updates were subtle. So you may not first notice the upgraded headlights or the modern tread behind the classic whitewalls. But when you're out on the road, you'll really appreciate the difference.

The black convertible top fits snugly for a quality look, and with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal an attractive two-tone interior. The red with beige looks great against the black paint, and this is the way this Bel Air was born. Of course, the solid investment in restoring it is what makes it so eye-catching today. And just like the exterior, it's nicely detailed everywhere from the working courtesy light to the contrast stitching of the tuck and roll seating. They also integrated all the best features for modern driving. It includes a tilt steering wheel, retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with Bluetooth, and there are upgraded speakers, including an amp and subwoofer hidden under the seat. And cold-blowing R134a air conditioning is always a welcomed addition in a convertible you want to drive through the summer.

But the best upgrade for the driver is under the hood. Part of what makes the Bel Air model a legend is that 1955 was the first production year for a small-block V8. This convertible picks up that torch and sprints with it thanks to a 350 cubic-inch crate motor. It has all the best features, like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor w/electric choke, Edelbrock aluminum intake, Mallory HEI ignition, and headers feeding a subtly sweet sounding dual exhaust. There's even a Griffin aluminum radiator with electric fans to help keep this one running cool even when you're in traffic with the A/C pumping. And the whole setup looks fresh because there's less than 500 miles on the motor. And about the same time they added the new V8, they also upgraded the transmission to a four-speed automatic with overdrive. Plus, you also have a CPP power steering box, power brakes, and front discs.

This is the Bel Air that was built to be driven, and the quality of this drop-top means you'll love to show it off everywhere. Call today!!!
