When you want a custom classic where all the hard work is already done, take a look at this iconic 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air. With a beautiful red exterior, custom A/C interior, performance V8 under the hood, and only about 4,700 miles on the whole build, all you have to do is drive to the car shows and get the trunk ready for all the trophies.
When you have a custom that looks this cool, you'll also love to know it starts with the right foundation. This is a genuine V8-spec 1955 Bel Air that has been given a full restoration. Now this iconic coupe has a level of perfection and attention the factory could never have the time to do. Then there was an investment in a modern metallic red that makes the Bel Air look like it was dipped in candy. Against paint this nice only the best brightwork will do. The grille, bumpers, and jet-inspired trim are all complete and mirror-like. This is essential because so many pieces are specific to the '55, and it all launched the legend of the Tri-Five Chevy. But not all the brightwork is straight from the factory. After all, you instantly are drawn to the 17-inch Cragar wheels.
This might be an iconic classic, but the moment you open the door, you see a very modern level of comfort. The two-tone tan leather is worthy of awards all on its own. The custom center console, seats, door panels, headliner, and even the trunk are a fully coordinated package that is sure to draw attention. Factory elements like the steering wheel and Corvette-like dual cowl dash let you know you're driving a classic '55, but they are joined buy plenty of luxury and performance upgrades. The AM/FM/CD stereo with an aux input for modern music players and the ice-cold R134a air conditioning are featureless everyone will love. But the Dakota Digital full gauge package and B&M Megashifter shifter are treats reserved just for the driver.
Grab your sunglasses before popping the hood, because everything that isn't covered in the awesome red has been polished to a mirror shine. Part of what makes these cars a legend is that 1955 was the first production year for the Chevy small block V8. The only optional eight-cylinder in this inaugural year was the 265 cubic-inch motor. So this keeps the original small block spirit, but it has been given a serious upgrade to 350 ci. And the upgrades don't stop there. This V8 has go-fast goodies such as Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, Edelbrock Performer heads, March serpentine drive bracket, HEI distributor, and shorty headers feeding a rumbling H-pipe dual exhaust. It's all backed up by reliable components such as the Griffin aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans. So you can be sitting in traffic with the A/C on, and this '55 will still run cool. Since it's setup to be a great running classic, it's a real driver, too. The suspension has been upgraded with features like CPP upper and lower control arms, QA1 coilovers, and a rear anti-sway bar. Add in power steering, front disc brakes, Goodyear Eagle GT tires, and a 700R4 four-speed automatic w/overdrive, and you can instantly tell this is a great anytime cruising classic.
A fantastic presentation that's custom from every angle. This is the icon that you drive and show, but you can only do it all if you're the first to snatch it up. Call today!!!
