According to sales, '55-'57 pro-tourers are often considered our best offerings. It's easy to understand why when you see this incredible Bel Air. It combines smooth Chevrolet Performance power, an Art Morrison chassis, and custom leather upholstery, all beautifully showcased in our infinity-wall photography studio. Looking for a sizzling custom car that blends proven mechanicals with timeless appeal and great aesthetics? Congratulations, you've found your next classic!


This slick Bel Air features a superb combination of Silver and Black 2-stage paint. It has undergone a highly detailed, professional ground-up restoration that is clean, custom, and precise. The enthusiasts behind this car paid meticulous attention to the fundamentals while focusing on creating the most perfect surfacing possible. The timeless panels are solid and well-aligned, resulting in a first-rate classic that seamlessly blends polished tradition with rich customization.

Notably, the familiar Chevy pigment serves as a fabulous foundation for select bolt-ons and customizations. At the front, a smoothed bumper complements a polished grille, pristine custom-fitted parking lamps, and traditional stainless-trimmed headlights. Above the grille, you'll find a customized hood and polished wiper caps. The stainless-trimmed front glass showcases one-piece side glass between familiar Chevrolet Sport Mirrors. The emblem-free profile features custom shaved doors that accentuate the iconic factory chrome side trim. At the rear, a second smoothed bumper frames LED tail lamps and a custom shaved decklid.

The car underwent a series of modifications, including pie cutting and sectioning out 2.5 inches from the front parking light area down to a 0-cut at the rear quarters, resulting in a sleek, raked look. The roof was also pancaked and the roof rail edges smoothly rolled to meet the stainless trim work. The one-piece front door glass and custom stainless trim work add to the car's one-off build platform. The level of work and final fitment is truly exceptional, showcasing the tremendous effort invested in this complete custom fabrication job.


Under the custom-made hood, you'll find a hot Chevrolet Performance 502 V8, which, like the car's restoration, is fresh and ready to roll. This well-rounded crate engine utilizes aluminum construction heads and a racing-inspired Hot Cam to provide thrilling performance and years of reliable cruising. The smooth-revving mill delivers impressive horsepower, and its eye-catching fuel injection system adds to the overall appeal when you pop the hood. The serpentine belt components showcase a modern water pump, a muted alternator, and an AC compressor. A heavy-duty aluminum radiator keeps things confidently cool, accompanied by quick electric puller fans. Sleeved plug wires, Concept One power steering components, and tidy headers add detail to this purpose-built performer. The clean, gloss silver painted engine bay is adorned with trick dipsticks, a billet expansion tank, and a high quality, pin-striped custom-built hood support.


Unsurprisingly, the bottom of this show-worthy Bel Air continues the theme of pairing proven hardware with enhanced technology. Gloss Black floors seamlessly blend with a glossy black painted Art Morrison chassis, which features tubular control arms, a front sway bar, and a full suite of adjustable coil-over shocks. Powering the car is a 6-speed manual transmission that spins the driveshaft, delivering torque to a positraction independent polished differential with sporty 3.73 gears. Maneuverability is enhanced by power rack-and-pinion steering, while big polished front Wilwood calipers ensure reliable stopping power. The calipers clamp multiple brake pistons around front slotted rotors and inbound rear rotors. Throaty mufflers receive aluminized and coated exhaust for an exhilarating sound. All of this hardware sits on a set of stunning Budnik polished wheels, with 225/50ZR17 TOYO tires up front and 245/45ZR18s in the rear.


Stepping inside the Bel Air, you'll be greeted by a fully custom and professionally installed cockpit boasting a striking combination of two-tone gray leathers and billet accent pieces. The front features beautiful bucket seats that anchor the interior. A smoothed custom-made dash houses a full set of Classic Instrument Gauges, providing a classic yet modern touch. A custom full-length console centers a modern shifter between hidden power window switches and a Bluetooth-capable head unit. Piped mats rest on new carpeting, complemented by custom side panels and a custom suede headliner. The driver enjoys a custom 3-spoke, half-wrap, aluminum polished, "Anthem style" steering wheel mounted on a tilting column, along with billet foot pedals. Vintage Air climate control ensures a comfortable driving experience. This Bel Air represents the result of a meticulous, ground-up build that would be an expensive endeavor to replicate without doubt. It's a highly desirable Tri-Five model equipped with all the right features, making it an exceptionally cool cruiser and show car anywhere you take it. If your dream is the perfect blend of '50s style and modern, reliable performance... then your search ends here with this truly one-of-a-kind '55 Chevy.
