For Sale: 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

The 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air is a legend for its styling. So a thoughtful restomod will keep the iconic touches while upgrading you to a luxury A/C interior, four-wheel disc brakes, and an overdrive transmission. And because this Tri-Five launched the legendary small block V8, they made sure you had a fully upgraded example that offers the best in power while delivering a show-worthy shine.


This coupe grabs all the right attention. The two-tone yellow and white follow the original Chevy color palette, but it now takes advantage of modern clearcoat shine. And the investment in this one went far more than just vibrant paint. We have receipts totaling $30k in investments in this car over the last few years. It's a pattern of quality care that delivers an icon with straight lines and mirror-like brightwork. This one signals it's a modified car in the best ways. Some are upgrades you did back in the day, like deleting the bumper overriders for a cleaner style. Other pieces signal a bit more of a modern touch with the tinted windows and crystal clear tri-bar headlights. And because Boyd Coddington was the king of custom California-style cruisers like this, it's great to have a lowered suspension sitting on a set of his 18-inch wheels.


The interior has been freshly redone to be both stunning and comfortable. We like how they kept the classic wide bench seat style, but now it's finished in a detailed and supple Ultraleather. This rich saddle tan with cream insert is repeated on the door panels, and it also sets the tone for the headliner, carpeting, and dash. It's a thoughtful uniform presentation that will have others benchmarking your car. There are all the right comfort features like power windows, a retro-style AM/FM stereo with CD changer, a polished Ididit tilt column, and ice-cold R134a air conditioning. But this Chevy is more than just a coddler. When you grab the wood-rimmed steering wheel with your left hand, rest your right one on the Lokar shifter, and gaze at the well-integrated full gauge package - it all tells your senses there's something special under the hood even before you twist the key and hear it roar.


The engine bay could win awards all on its own. There was a ton invested in just getting the inner walls so slick. Plus, we dare you to find another component that can be polished - even the battery is covered in brightwork! But more than just look terrific, this V8 is ready to deliver plenty of power. This 350 cubic-inch V8 was built with go-fast goodies like aluminum heads, a Weiand intake, and topped with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. Plus, you have good supporting features, such as upgraded brackets and an aluminum radiator w/electric fans. This total power package exhales through headers that feed a sweet-sounding dual exhaust. And more than just a great modern motor, a true restomod must be improved for driving, too. So as you look at the clean undercarriage photos, don't forget to spot pieces like the four-wheel power disc brakes and Hotchkis sway bars front and rear. You've also got power steering, modern ZR-rated tires, and a four-speed automatic transmission featuring overdrive. So you've got a stunner that's easy to enjoy on trips near or far.


This unique restomod comes with title documentation, maintenance records, and a dyno sheet. It's the kind of Chevy that you've always wanted, and if you're quick enough, your reward is ready. Call today!!!
