For Sale: 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air has all the awesome classic style that has everything you want, including the hardtop profile, V8 power, and a fully coordinated two-tone inside and out. It all makes for a detailed icon with a shining vintage style and just the right well-integrated upgrades for a better cruiser.

The trim tag says this Shoreline Beige and Gypsy Red is factory correct. So it's great to find one that was not only born this way, but also it received a respray along the way. It means you get a beautiful gloss to show off all those classic lines. The finish is only part of this car's appeal because we're told this was given an extensive restoration in 2008. There has been only respect for this coupe since then, and you see it in the overall quality presentation, right down to the straight panels, even gaps, and pliable weather stripping. The full trim package loves to provide a proper dividing line for the two-tone. In fact, the brightwork package is complete and shining - from the wraparound chrome bumpers to the wheel covers. And you'll love all the classic cruiser details like the whitewall tires, polished exhaust tips, and rear fender skirts. It all makes this Bel Air look like it turned back the clock while also shining as bright as your nostalgia.

The red and beige color theme is carried inside, and this is the factory-correct color combo. The interior is just as clean and impressive as the exterior with the carpeting, headliner, and seats giving this an inviting atmosphere. You'll even love the little things, like the detailed feel of the seats, working dome light, and clean/classic trunk with stand-up spare. But the overall idea of this interior is to give you a carefree and comfortable cruiser where everyone can hop in on a whim and enjoy the open road. That's why this Bel Air now has a retro-style AM/FM/cassette stereo. So can't you just imagine rolling down all the windows on this hardtop, cranking up your favorite FM station, and going on a summer evening ice cream run?

The VIN shows this was born a VC-code V8 car. That's particularly important because the '55 Chevy launched the now-famous small block motor. And since this hardtop has such a great connection to history, it's great to have an era-correct 265 cubic-inch V8 under the hood. They paid attention to giving this a vintage presentation, right down to the Chevrolet script on the valve covers and AC oil filter. The V8 fires up eagerly, so you know it's a classic that wants to cruise. That's why you have some easy driving features like the Powerglide automatic transmission and modern treads hiding behind the classic whitewall tire style.

This is a two-tone, first-year Tri-Five done to make sure you can see and feel why this is a true American icon. So don't let this classic coupe slip away. Call now!
