For Sale at Auction: 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air hardtop sports coupe was comprehensively redone over a 2-1/2-year period with a body-off rotisserie restoration. The exterior is finished in a dark Candy Apple Red over a two-tone light and dark tan interior with a contrasting suede headliner. The entire interior was first coated with Second Skin Spectrum ceramic coating and 3M noise reduction padding before being finished. Accenting these materials is a Bel Era Black Series custom gauge panel with red pointers by Classic Instruments and a Flaming River polished steering column. A new American Autowire classic update wiring harness and a Lokar updated gas pedal keep everything in working order, while entertainment is delivered from a Custom Autosound 200W tuner. Underneath, the Art Morrison GT55 sports chassis has been powder-coated in black. This frame was built with a 3-1/2-inch in-frame exhaust passageway and incorporates a 4-link triangulated rear suspension that further features a Strange third member, adjustable coilover shocks, 9-inch rear housing and Strange's 31-spline hardened rear axles. The power rack & pinion steering has a 20:1 ratio. The spindles, front and rear sway bars and the tubular upper and lower control arms have all been chrome-plated. The car's brake system is controlled by a Wilwood 1-inch master cylinder and 4-wheel vented 12.7-inch Wilwood Forged Dynalite Pro discs, forged billet Dynalite 4-piston calipers, two-piece hat and rotor assemblies, stainless lines and hoses and high-performance friction pads. Boyd Coddington Custom Classic Magneto front and rear wheels are shod in Pirelli P245/45ZR17 and P275/40ZR18 tires front and rear. Powered by a LS6 crate engine that's backed up by a 4L60E automatic transmission, the mill sports a BBK aluminum intake manifold, Jet Hot-coated long-tube headers, Street & Performance custom 3-pin MAF, and new core support and crossflow radiator with dual electric fans. ** PREVIEW
