Vehicle Description

1956 Chevrolet Sierra Gold

Car History

The Chevrolet Bel Air was a full-size car produced by Chevrolet for the 1950-1981 model years. Initially only the two door hardtops in the Chevrolet model range were designated with the Bel Air name from 1950 to 1952, as distinct from the Styleline and Fleetline models for the remainder of the range.

The 1956 Bel Air back then received a face-lift with a more conventional full-width grille, pleasing those customers who didn't favor the Ferrari-inspired '55 front end. Distinctive two-tone bodyside treatments and graceful front and rear wheel openings completed the "speedline" restyling.

The Sierra Gold 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air we have here at Adventure Classics has been restored back to a factory stock look with mods done to make it more powerful, comfortable, and handle better.

Engine & Drivetrain

To begin with, the engine in this sharp 56 is a 283 cubic inch small Block Chevrolet V8 that has a 4-barrel carb, aluminum and a mild cam giving it nice performance and a nice deep sound. It also has power steering and power brakes.and nicely detailed engine compartment.

It is backed by a 4-speed manual transmission and rides on a new set of black wall tires with custom chrome 5-spoke mag wheels. It also sounds great with the dual exhaust system running out the back of the car thru the chrome custom exhaust tips.

Interior

The sierra gold and cream theme continues on the inside. This is the factory color combo, and its level of completeness is amazing. It starts with the bench seat in front cover with sierra gold/creme two-tone upholstery and the matching back seat and door panels, sierra gold carpeting, bright trim, factory steering wheel, floor mats, and great headliner.

The dash is trimmed out in the exterior color, factory gauges, knobs, controls, stainless trim, and the factory AM radio and has the factory clock.

Exterior

Our 1956 Chevy was a big seller back then because of the daring colors, chrome, powerful V8, and rocket-inspired designs. The two-tone Sierra Gold and Calypso Cream paint is perfect and period-correct on the Bel Air with the great chrome grille, trim, bumpers, and all the emblems complete this is total package.

And the iconic rocket like hood ornament and taillights are great touches that remind you that this Chevy was designed like the jet age it was made in.

The body lines are great and include the styling cues that make this Tri-Five look so good. Single housings incorporated the taillight, stoplight, and backup light, and the left one held the gas filler to really ad to this 56's aesthetics.

Conclusion

The 1956 restored Chevrolet Bel Air we have at Adventure Classics will provide you with a superb Tri-Five ride that's both comfortable, durable, fast, and safe as well as owning a professionally restored 1956 that few are lucky enough to experience.
Don't miss your chance to experience this incredible 1956 Chevy Bel Air.
