A VC-code 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air sedan with upgraded small block V8
power is already pretty darn exciting. So when it looks ready for
the streets and the price is so obtainable, you know it's a deal
that's quite nice.
The '55 Chevy has remained the enduring motoring icon because of
how well it represented what we wanted in the '50s - great colors,
plenty of chrome, and rocket-inspired designs. And this one does it
quite well. The first thing that strikes you is the two-tone. The
trim tag tells us that India Ivory and Harvest Gold is the
factory-correct color combo, and a later respray means it still
knows how to attract attention. And the way the range-topping Bel
Air uses the premium trim as a separating line is a masterstroke.
The '55 Chevy launched the legendary Tri-Five era with the wide
grille, form-fitting bumper, and curvaceous hood with a fighter jet
ornament taking off from the center. In the rear, there's an artful
design with just the right amount of tailfin. It's all quite
complete with a driver-ready sense of presentation. That's
important because you can also see the right hints of upgrades for
a cooler cruiser. The dual exhaust tips, blue-dot tail lights, and
Rally wheels are subtle upgrades that tell you this one is ready to
hit the road.
Inside is a factory-correct green interior. It's another great
1950s tone, and the hue seems to harmonize nicely with the exterior
yellow. Plus, just like the exterior, its level of completeness is
amazing. So you get plenty of bright trim, door panels that mimic
the exterior style line, and an artful steering wheel. The
Corvette-inspired dual cowl dash still even has the original AM
radio cranking out tunes. So if you have friends and family that
appreciate a true classic, this sedan gives everyone plenty of room
to come along for the ride. And because this is a true cruiser,
there is a removable cup holder center console added for the right
amount of driver convenience.
One of the big reasons this is such a good cruiser is because of
what's in the engine bay. The '55 Chevy is coveted for launching
the small block era, but it never received something like this from
the factory. Not only is the 350 cubic-inch motor larger than
stock, but also it has been enhanced further with an Edelbrock
four-barrel carburetor. This extra dose of power makes for a
sweeter sound out of the dual exhaust. Plus, the TH350 three-speed
automatic transmission is a fine choice for an upgrade because it's
both stout and smooth.
Complete with maintenance records, this Bel Air has a classic look
and feel, but it also gives you the right hints of upgrades to make
sure it's a better cruiser. So you have a true icon represented
correctly and offered at an affordable price. Don't miss out, call
