For Sale: 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

The 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air set a new standard that became the first of the Tri-Five Chevys. So it's great to find a hardtop with a timeless color combo, classic V8 power, and an attractive overall presentation. And there's even a bit of a story to go with this two-tone coupe.

The restoration on this Bel Air was about 20 years ago, and it's only believed to have gone about 8,300 miles since then. The reason why the history can stretch back that far is that the consignor's father has cherished the car the whole time. This impression of responsible use and upkeep is also reflected in the straight body panels, tight gaps, clean glass, good rubber, and nice chrome on bumpers and trim. Plus, the red and white two-tone continues to have a nice gloss to showcase the ultra-desirable hardtop body. And while you will appreciate this one for its history, it also makes sure it's still a true cruiser that takes you to the car shows and ice cream runs. And so you'll see the right newer investments throughout, including a newer set of BF Goodrich T/As on the classic Cragar SS polished wheels - including the spare.

One of the best reasons to have a hardtop is so that you can roll down all the side glass to let people get a better look at the interior. And this one really knows how to do it right. The two-tone continues inside with a custom and comfy button-top red upholstery with cool streaks of white. The door panels, carpeting, dash, and headliner are all red or white for a thoughtful total presentation. This loves to be a proper classic cruiser, and so the bright dash panel and the stylized steering wheel can transport your senses to 1955. And the little details here also make the difference, like the recently replaced speedo cluster and well-integrated Stewart Warner readouts for driving essentials like the battery and oil pressure.

What we like about this car is that it likes to be a custom cruiser without going over-the-top, and that includes the engine bay. This VC-code Bel Air has a 265 cubic-inch V8 looking quite stock in the engine bay. Where you'll see the upgrades are in the places that make this a better cruiser. This includes the Optima red top battery, Flame Thrower coil, a newer master cylinder/booster, an alternator, and a full fuel system. There are even new mounts for the motor and transmission. So you can really understand how this is meant to be a strong and smooth runner. And a true cruiser needs to feel good out on the road. That's why there are easy driving features like a Powerglide automatic transmission, power brakes, front discs, and a nice grip from the new tires.

The sale comes complete with nice bonuses like the stock hubcaps and a box full of extra components. There is something quite alluring about an icon that has been well-kept to remain a true cruiser. Call today!!!
