For Sale: 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

This 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air shows all the right signs of being a proper survivor in all the main areas, including the two-tone paint, detailed interior, and the V8 under the hood. So in a world where a Tri-Five Chevy already gets a ton of respect, this one is the patriarch of that dynasty.

We don't take the term survivor lightly, especially when it comes to icons like the Tri-Five Chevy. So it takes an impressive story and presentation for us to believe we're looking at nearly 70 years of originality. And this one has it! We're told it has been with the same family from new right up until 2022. It was cherished for all those decades where even the exceptionally low odometer is believed to represent the full actual mileage. It has the look of a low-mileage garage-kept classic where the panels look terrific, the bumpers shine nicely, and the distinct 1956 trim is quite clean and complete. Even the paint is believed to be the factory application on this car. It has an impressive style where the Crocus Yellow and Laurel Green are quite complete while also showing the maturity that gives this seven-decade story authenticity. In fact, when a car like this is so genuine, you're really just going to be spending time trying to figure out what isn't stock from the factory (so far all we can tell are the whitewalls and the exhaust tip.)

The factory-correct charcoal and yellow interior continues the proper time capsule appearance. The seats carry that cool '50s design that have button-top seatbacks and textured cloth inserts. The taut door panels, clean headliner, and even working dome light are all part of a terrific factory package that makes it an awesome survivor. You'll be hard-pressed to find any replacements because anything that may have been replaced was done with the correct care. You get a beautiful factory steering wheel, and beyond that is the dual cowl dash that had a design shared with the Corvette. And the AM radio is still working! Even the trunk resembles a time capsule with the correct jack and a full-sized spare on a bias-ply tire.

Under the hood is a bright style that still keeps the vintage feeling. After all, you can understand why they would give a fresher bold red to the 265 cubic-inch V8 when it's believed to be the original powerhouse. It makes for a nice way to showcase this significant motor, and we also like that they never went overboard with the presentation. The oil bath air cleaner, Delco-Remy generator, and survivor-like steel components keep this looking authentic. What's also particularly nice about this car is the way it continues to want to be a true cruiser. The V8 fires up with the stout feeling of a respected car, and while it likes you to feel the road, there's also an automatic transmission for easy journeys.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, spare components, and even the original license plate. We take survivors seriously here, and so it's hard to find something more exciting than an in-demand Bel Air that wears all the history of why it's an icon. Call today!!!
