"The 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air was America's most popular car for 1955, which is saying something for a year in which Americans bought cars as never before. But then, the '55 Chevys were something really special.� With styling. In a complete change from Chevy's stodgy past, the '55s were thoroughly up-to-date with Sweep Sight wrapped windshields atop "longer-lower-wider" bodies. The wheelbase was unchanged at 115 inches, and the overall design was balanced and tasteful for the day.

For sale by owner is this mostly original, classic 1955 Bel Air in the always desirable blue/white color combination. This is the kind of car we love to find. An original car and a long time owner (over 25 years). It was acquired by the owner in the 1980's in pretty much the same condition you see here.� Please let all the pictures load (there are over 120) to see the great condition of this classic old Chevy.� Our knowledge of what has been done to this car is somewhat limited, this is what we do know.� It is a combination of original, with some cosmetic and mechanical work done over the years as needed.� It appears the car was repainted long ago in the original India Ivory/Skyline Blue�combination. The original 6 cylinder engine and transmission are long gone and have been replaced with a late 50's/early 60's 283 V-8 and a 3-speed automatic transmission. The exterior trim and chrome appear original and in great shape. The interior is very nice with some restoration as needed. The undercarriage is solid, clean and dry.
