For Sale: 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air two-door sedan is the icon with all the right cruiser-ready upgrades. It takes the chrome-king classic look you love and adds an upgraded V8, four-on-the-floor, and a sleek two-tone style.


The Tri-Fives were known for their two-tone presentations, but this one likes to make sure it distinguishes itself in the first impression. After all, Chevy never tried something daring as black and silver at the factory. Plus, the black has a deep gloss of quality, and the silver has a metallic element that loves the sunshine. It makes for a terrific way to show off the straight body lines. Also highlighting the good sheet metal is the 1956's Bel Air's unique full-length trim. In fact, this one loves to show off its unique pieces with added flair. That's why the larger 1956 grille now has custom slats done in a mirror-like chrome. The jet-inspired hood ornament, form-hugging bumpers, and an upgrade to genuine wire wheels are all part of this cruiser's impressive total package.


The gray tweed interior looks good against the exterior silver, and it's on the upholstery, carpeting, door panels, and headliner for a uniform style. Plus, the black return on the dash and door tops for a well-coordinated full package. There are nice classic details everywhere from the Bel Air steering wheel to the working dome light. There are even upgrades like an AM/FM/cassette stereo in a custom bow tie mounting plate and provisions for R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) The custom pinstriping on the dash makes for a nice cruiser attitude. And of course, the moment you grab the Hurst pistol grip shifter, you're going to want to hit the road.


The engine bay has been finished with the same kind of custom flair as the rest of this car. Clean inner fenders, metallic silver accents, a bright block, and plenty of polished components have an attractive style. At the heart is a 283 cubic-inch V8. That's important because the Tri-Fives launched the small block era, and this was the largest displacement of the series. But they also couldn't resist giving it the best upgrades. It now has a Demon four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Torker intake, and long tube headers that add power while also contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. There are also the right supporting components, like a polished aluminum Mickey Thompson valve covers, an HEI distributor, and an aluminum radiator. It's the kind of classic that really wants you to feel the road, and that includes the control of a four-speed manual transmission.


This Bel Air really knows how to be both a great icon and a cool custom. So don't let it slip away. Call today!!!
