For Sale: 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air in Pewaukee, Wisconsin

Vehicle Description

The advent of the 1955 Chevrolet and the small-block OHV V-8 offered under its hood is considered by some to have spurred on the Hot Rod movement among new car buyers. The 1955 Chevrolet 150 Custom Convertible offered here is highly upgraded from its origins, built with modern ideas that do not overwhelm the senses. The tri-five Chevrolet designs have remained attractive even after 75 years, with 1955 considered to be the ""purest"" by some aficionados. This example is the painstaking result of a professional build that started with a Real Deal Steel reproduction body. Under the hood now resides a new GM LS3 crate engine, which itself superseded the original small-block in terms of technology, durability and horsepower potential. The engine bay is detailed with polished accents and smoothed engine bay sheet metal. Here it is followed by the more modern 4L70E 4-speed automatic transmission featuring overdrive and an Art Morrison 9-inch differential hosting a Strange center section and 31-spline super street axles. Built on an Art Morrison TRI 5 GMax frame, the body is covered in Glasurit 55 line paint in gunmetal and charcoal tones. Braking comes via Wilwood disc calipers and drilled and slotted rotors. Once stepping inside, you are treated to an extensively customized leather interior by JK Automotive Designs fitted with mauve-tone upholstery, air conditioning, custom gauges in the dash, an underdash consolette with operations switches, power steering, power windows and a power convertible top, which complements the body in a light gray color. Even the trunk has been refitted for show-quality appearance, while exterior trim is primarily enhancements on the traditional cues. A set of intricately cut Forgeline wheels with low-profile tires offers the final touch of class here. While the car is upgraded, it retains much of the automotive DNA evident in the original 1955 model release. With this custom convertible, you can see the U.S.A. in your Chevrolet, or be seen yourself on the show field.
