This 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Hardtop is the icon with all the right
upgrades. It takes the classic look you love and adds a 390 hp V8,
a leather-lined A/C interior, and an award-worthy color package
inside & out. So as you look into the details, you'll start to
realize this coupe already has everything you really want.
The Cobalt Blue has a boldness that knows how to attract attention.
It's an electric-level color applied to show off an excellent gloss
and shine. This modern blue still looks right on a classic thanks
to the timeless white added in the mix. In fact, the '56 Bel Air is
the one to have when it comes to two-tone presentations. The white
section streaks up the profile for a sporty style that also
showcases the straightness of the sheetmetal. It makes the '56 cars
quite unique, and the same goes for the sleek grille that was only
offered this year. Plus, with the trim, bumpers, hood ornament,
taillights and all the emblems complete, this is a total package
that is worth its weight in shining brightwork. And the large dual
exhaust tips and 17-inch American Racing polished wheel signal that
this classic also has upgraded power within.
A pillarless hardtop like this makes it easy for people to get a
full look inside, and so they made sure this one was going to be
impressive. After all, the white interior not only coordinates with
the exterior, but it also radiates a premium style. And not only
does the exterior blue return on the door tops and dash, but also
the blue on the carpeting and seat belts harmonize with this
well-coordinated full package. It all has a '50s-style look, but
you can see that this was upgraded later in life by the crispness
in its appearance. The seats are even finished in supple leather.
This is the kind of car that you'll love to share with family and
friends. That's why this also has handy upgrades like a retro-sound
AM/FM stereo with aux input, a cup holder center console, and
cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. And even when just going solo,
you know this Bel Air has been built around the driver. That's why
you have a classic wood and chrome steering wheel mounted on a
polished tilt column. Plus, the classic Moon auxiliary gauge trio
works with the factory readouts to give you a full picture on
what's going on under the hood.
The engine bay has been finished to the same high standards as the
rest of this coupe. Clean inner fenders and a smooth color-matched
firewall funnel your attention to a bright and tidy powerhouse in
the middle. While the shining components are impressive, what
you'll really love is that this is a Blueprint 355 V8 crate motor
that was professionally installed in 2016. It's built with all the
right performance parts, including aluminum heads, an Edelbrock
high-rise intake, and topped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor.
And headers add power while contributing to the rumble of the
H-pipe dual exhaust. There are also the right supporting
components, like a Wizard aluminum radiator, Spal electric fans,
upgraded pulleys, and the battery is in the trunk for better weight
distribution. The full power package is said to be rated at 390
horsepower, and so you'll be glad this is paired to the stout but
smooth TH400 three-speed automatic transmission. Power steering,
power brakes w/discs upfront, and modern sport tires all mean that
this upgraded classic is easy to enjoy on the road.
Complete with maintenance records and service manuals, this is the
cool Tri-Five that loves to impress over every inch. So if you want
