For Sale: 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air in Rogers, Minnesota

Vehicle Description

This 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible is an absolutely stunning showstopping Tri-Five Chevy in the right colors having underwent a comprehensive professional frame off restoration. In 1955, Chevrolet completely re-designed its top-of-the-line Bel Air both inside and out. The updated style on the '55 Bel-Air was bolder with a more square look, and kicked off the Tri-Five era for Chevy. From the front of the car, the most notable changes were the new-look grilles, freshly restyled bumpers, wraparound windshields, and the famous "hooded" headlights that were carried through the rest of the Tri-Five era cars. The interiors on the '55 Bel Airs were plusher than more economic 150 and 210 models and the new interior design would become an iconic characteristic as well. 1955 was also a notable year for Chevrolet since it was the first year Chevy offered a V8 engine option on its passenger cars. This particular show-quality example comes to us from a prominent east coast collector out of his very large collection of vintage cars and trucks. A freshly detailed and smooth running 265 Cubic Inch V8 engine that is paired with a single 2 barrel Rochester carburetor that pushed out 162 horsepower in its day. The 265 V8 is hooked up to a Powerglide Automatic Transmission so that just about anybody can take this beauty for a spin around the block. Dual exhaust gives this classic Chevy a nice throaty sound. With power steering, getting in and out of tight spaces is made much easier and the overall driving experience is much more enjoyable. The exterior on this Bel Air Convertible has been beautifully refinished in its original two-tone color scheme consisting of Gypsy Red and Shoreline Beige. The chrome and brightwork are stellar on this Bel Air! The white vinyl power convertible top is in fantastic shape and goes up and down with the simple push of a button. This Chevrolet rides on 4 wide whitewall bias-ply tires with full wheelcovers giving the car a truly classic look. The interior on this Bel-Air Convertible is superb! The front and rear bench seats have been reupholstered in the correct material and color scheme for the car, red and beige vinyl. The dash, door panels and steering wheel all appear to be in their stock configuration and are in wonderful condition. The dash is equipped with a 110 MPH speedometer, temperature gauge, and gasoline gauge, as well as an AM radio and clock. Whether you're looking for your very first classic car or your garage is full of Tri-Fives, this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible would be an excellent choice. Give us a call today!
