For Sale: 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air in Lapeer, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1956 Chevy Belair 4 door 6 passenger Sedan, Matador red and India ivory with Matador red and Dune beige interior. Current mileage is 111,400. The car looks completely original inside and out, but runs and stops much better than originals.

This car is in very good to excellent condition...seriously.....not like some of the ads I've seen for cars with dents, visible rust, splitting seams on the seats, heavily pitted chrome, cracked glass and worn out tires that claim to be in excellent condition!!! Mine is like new compared to a lot of the “excellent” ads out there.
The original 265 v8 was replaced with a 1979 Chevy 350 4 bolt main motor which was rebuilt by previous owner around 2019. It has a turbo 350 automatic trans that was rebuilt at about 109,000 miles. It runs great and shifts are nice and firm. Drives great around town or at highway speeds. It is perfect for cruising around town with friends or family or a longer trip when the weather is nice. You can also shine it up a bit and go to a local car show and get a $2 trophy if that is your thing.

It has front power disc brakes from a 1971 Chevy Caprice and new brake lines front and back. Manual steering with rebuilt steering gear. New gas tank, sender and fuel line. There is an edelbrock performer manifold and 4 barrel carb with electric choke.
New axle bearings by Ring and Pinion shop. 2 year old Coker wide whitewalls with original 56 chevy full wheel covers. I also have the matching factory style fender skirts to go with the car. Dual exhaust with turbo mufflers.
Recent new interior from C.A.R.S. in the original cloth and vinyl material as it was when new including the door panels, headliner and carpeting.
Very good am/fm/cd sound system and speakers.
Custom trunk treatment with interior fabric and several storage compartments.
All new wiring professionally done, soldered connections with heat shrink.
All chrome is very good to excellent condition.
It has a C.A.R.S. 4 core radiator, an electric cooling fan and a 4 bladed steel racing engine driven fan.
I bought the car last year to get back into a Tri5 chevy club that we had been in a couple times before but we have decided to go in a different direction, either something a little newer like 60's or early 70's or possibly even another older hot rod like we once had.

I don’t need help selling this car. I will not respond to online requests like “how much will you take for it ?“ or any specific lower offer. If you are really a buyer and not just a tire kicker or someone looking to find a car you can steal from someone then you will want to see the car in person first before making an offer. I will remove the ad as soon as I have sold it and deposited the cash in my account or get tired of the hassle and dealing with no-shows so if the ad is still here then neither has happened yet.
