Chevy debuted its new pillar-less sport sedan to it's top of the line Bel Air series and the mid-line 210 series. Minor changes were made to the 1956, including new engine options, a slightly different dash, a newly hidden gas filler cap in the rear fin, and colors, trim and fabrics.

Previously owned by a Tri-Five Chevy collector and his wife, this Belair was purchased in California in the late 70s' and has been in storage since 1981. It was not removed from storage or driven until 2013 when the car was put up for sale. This is a California car with the original 265 Powerpack V-8 engine, 3-speed manual transmission with overdrive, original interior and 1 piece bumpers still in place. This spring the car was taken to a Chevrolet mechanic where it was completely gone thru from top to bottom. It was then sent to the body shop where it received an incredible show quality repaint in the original color combination of India Ivory/Twilight Turquoise. You really have to see it, this is one of the few cars that looks better in person!  All the exterior trim and chrome are original and were either redone or professionally polished.
