This 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air has that iconic classic style we all
love, but the custom two-tone is your indicator that this is far
more than just vintage fun. This is a restored Tri-Five with less
than 2k miles on the build. They gave it features like a strong
crate V8, an overdrive transmission, an upgraded suspension, and an
A/C interior to make sure this is the legendary classic that's also
ready for modern cruising.
This one instantly announces it's something special. Two-tone
themes were terrific to have on a '55 Chevy, but the presentation
is quite modern here. After all, you could get black from the
factory, but it was never paired with something as attractive as
this Sunset Orange. Chevrolet knew how to create awesome-looking
trim to separate their two tones, and in this case, this new and
shining trim also showcases how well all the panels fit together.
There was plenty more invested in the brightwork to make sure you
have an impressive glow from the extra-wide, jet-age hood ornament,
and the big chrome bumpers that add extra curves to the design as
they wrap around the sides. Soli investments all around this car
really remind us why it's an icon. But the 16-inch American Racing
Torq Thrust wheels have the look and stance to tell you this looker
is also a driver.
The interior is a tasteful set up with an attractive beige and
plenty of black to coordinate with the exterior. The carpeting,
upholstery, dash pad, and other fundamentals all show good quality
from the right investment. You'll appreciate the classic details on
this clean and terrific interior. It's everything from the button
top on the upholstery to the Corvette-like double-hump dash.
There's plenty of bright trim everywhere, and even the classic AM
radio is there for a display. But as vintage as this feels, it was
restored to be a true cruiser. So the cold-blowing air conditioning
is a welcomed upgrade that makes summer driving far more
comfortable. And while you still have the fan-style gauge housing,
it now is a Classic Instruments piece that keeps you fully
The engine bay likes to impress, too. Smooth inner walls, bright
components, and an overall tidy setup make it ready to show off.
And there's plenty of substance behind the style. This is a 350
cubic-inch crate V8 motor. Not only is this a fresh
performance-oriented motor, but it has the right added components
like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock aluminum
intake, and shorty headers feeding the dual exhaust. Plus, the
transmission was upgraded to a 700R4 unit that's stout to handle
the power and smoothly shifts all the way into overdrive. As you
look underneath, you'll see this Chevy is riding on a stronger
custom frame, and there's also a Fatman A-arm front suspension.
Rack and pinion power steering, power brakes, front discs, and
modern sport tires complete a package that makes you really want to
drive this award-worthy Bel Air.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a classic first-year Tri-Five
Bel Air that checks all your boxes for power, comfort, and style.
That's why this one is so irresistible. Call today!!!
