For Sale: 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air in Charlotte, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

What do you get when you combine the classic aesthetics of one of the world's pre-eminent collector cars with choice modifications that are both intensive and timeless? Well, you get a dashing custom that's just as comfortable being a head-turning street rod as it is being a high-octane Long Hauler! Mixing the universal appeal of all-American style with road going prowess that's afforded by only the best modern hardware, this handsome Chevy is cool, clean and ready to rock and roll. And if you're a cultured enthusiast who's looking for something that's nice enough to drive AND show, it's some of the best metal your money can buy!

THE LOOK THAT GETS LOOKS

Reflecting enticing red two-stage that virtually glows, this sweet Bel Air is the product of a detailed, ground-up build that conquered the American Tri-Five Association's Tri-Five Nationals, stormed the National Muscle Car Association Nationals and cleaned house for half a decade on the Super Chevy show circuit. That's 16 awards from three prominent organizations in the span of just five short years - Yes, it IS that nice! The car's vivid aesthetics come to life with a smoothed bumper, which guards a polished grille and traditional halogen headlights. At the top of that grille, a nosed and peaked hood points at a smoked greenhouse that's cleared by electric RainGear wipers. Those blades join stainless frames to melt into a monochromatic profile that's garnished with factory door handles, a polished mirror and factory Speed Spears. And at the back of the car, a decked and filled trunk shades a guarded, wagon-style bumper between chrome-trimmed LED taillights.

THE GO THAT GETS GONE

Pop this tri-five's billet-lined hood and you'll find 350 cubic inches of proven Chevrolet Performance crate engine that was sourced, turnkey, from Summit Racing Equipment. At the top of that polished mill, a custom air cleaner twists oxygen through a 600cfm Edelbrock EnduraShine 4-barrel that's finished with a quality Lokar linkage and a convenient electric choke. That carb floods a bright Edelbrock EnduraShine intake, which feeds spry Vortec heads that are finished with stamped rocker arms and hydraulic lifters. A nodular crank works well with powdered rods, a hydraulic cam and dished pistons. At the back of that cam, a hot MSD distributor sequences fire between a reliable MSD coil and loomed MSD Super Conductor plug wires. Billet Specialties Tru Trac serpentine components turn a polished water pump between a polished AC compressor and a polished alternator. Exhaust exits through coated shorty headers. A bowtie-capped Griffin radiator hangs a polished expansion tank and dual SPAL puller fans in a custom core support. Show worthy detailing includes trick dipsticks, dressed hoses, polished tanks and polished valve covers with Chevy-themed breathers. And the 4-bolt block rolls in a smoothed and body-matched engine bay that's trimmed with polished Billet Specialties hood supports.

FANCY AND FUNCTIONAL

Park this sedan on a lift and you'll find solid floors that, along with a factory California frame, sport clean, Satin Black aesthetics. At the center of those boxed bones, a cooled 700R4 4-speed, trimmed with a polished TCI pan, twists a polished driveshaft that's threaded to a tough Currie 9-inch. That polished pumpkin pushes a traditional Bel Air rear-clip that's finished with polished springs, a polished sway bar, polished lowering blocks and spry Edelbrock shocks. Modern power rack-and-pinion steering pivots amid a traditional independent front-half that's finished with polished control arms, a polished sway bar and modern coil-overs. A polished brake booster joins a polished master cylinder to jolt polished Wilwood calipers, which squeeze 12-inch drilled and slotted rotors. The aforementioned headers feed stainless pipes, which center an H-shaped crossover in front of polished MagnaFlow mufflers and polished stainless tips. The aforementioned carburetor drains a custom, highly polished fuel tank. All that mechanical goodness rolls on polished Billet Specialties Rails, which lap 235/45R17 Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs in front of 275/55R20 Goodyear Eagle Sports. And cool details include braided lines, polished crossmembers, bowtie-branded stem caps and a quality Powermaster XS Torque Starter.

CUSTOM AND COMFORTABLE

Climb inside this razor-sharp Chevrolet and you'll find a fully custom interior that features dramatic style and great looking trim. Stitched in soft leather, the car's broad split bench reclines for the comfort of the driver and front passenger. A body-matched dash fashions billet, bowtie-branded trim around classy Classic Instruments telemetry and cool air conditioning. Beneath that ledge, plush carpet frames billet pedals on its way to textured side panels that hang between billet handles and quick power windows. A billet rearview mirror reflects a sculpted headliner, which backs discreet Custom Autosound audio. The driver spins a polished and half-wrapped wheel around a polished, tilting column. And a custom-upholstered trunk hides the car's relocated battery.

A nicely finished classic that was built to be driven AND seen, this slick Chevy mixes a mild street rod demeanor with simply awesome curb appeal. Looking for a cool cruiser that's guaranteed to draw a crowd wherever you go? Your search is officially over. Call, click or visit http://www.RKMotors.com today!
