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
