This 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air is built to go as well as show with
proven hardware combined with enhanced technology. Fully restored,
the Bel Air received a thorough nut-and-bolt rotisserie restoration
and is powered by a 502ci Ram Jet big block Chevrolet V8 engine.
Topped with a simple air cleaner and a chromed GM Performance Parts
intake, the V8 features Street & Performance fuel injection,
lightweight aluminum heads, chromed Chevrolet valve covers with
billet breathers. Additionally, the engine has a traditional
points-style distributor, loomed Taylor wires, a March Ultra Drive
system, polished Edelbrock water pump, polished alternator and a
polished air conditioning compressor. Cooling is through an
aluminum radiator with two SPAL puller fans and a polished
expansion tank. Spent gasses exit via coated long-tube headers and
a polished stainless exhaust with Borla ProXS mufflers. The engine
bay has been smoothed and finished to mirror the bodywork and
sports chromed hinges as well as a custom closeout panel. The Bel
Air rides on an Art Morrison GT Sport chassis painted in Metallic
Silver. For suspension, the Chevy has polished spindles, polished
control arms, polished sway bars and adjustable Aldan coilovers. A
TREMEC TKO 600 5-speed transmission sits on a polished crossmember
and spins a polished aluminum driveshaft as well as a smoothed and
painted Ford 9-inch rear end that's built with a posi-traction
differential and sporty 3.70 gears. The Bel Air has power rack &
pinion steering and features a set of Wilwood brake calipers
clamping down on drilled and slotted rotors. Additional features
include a mirrored stainless fuel tank and 245/40ZR18 BFGoodrich
g-Force T/As in the front and 275/35ZR20 BFGoodrich g-Force T/As in
the rear. ** PREVIEW
