Stk 2201 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air
Many of us have had a Tri-Five Chevy take us back in time. However, this '56 BelAir 2-door Hardtop is really a different breed. Originally a California car, this stunning Chevy was the beneficiary of a comprehensive 2-1/2 year rotisserie restoration. This is a true 'Trailer Queen', a show-car that has never seen the rain or slept outside. The all-original sheet metal was stripped, skimmed and massaged by Little Designs, Lancaster CA. Next came the application of a near flawless coat of Turquoise and White, along with subtle ghost flames. The rumble under the hood is a 383ci Stroker crate motor - music to one's ears. Everything is top-shelf: Edelbrock intake, Holley 770 Street Avenger carb, ceramic headers, electronic ignition and Mattson cross-flow radiator. Producing 425 horsepower, the engine is backed by a 700R automatic w/shift kit and high-stall speed converter w/lock-in. The Currie Enterprises 9" rear-end holds a Detroit TrueTrac differential fitted with 3.89:1 gears. A spotless chassis, finished and powder coated to perfection, supports a suspension augmented in front with Heidt's 2" lowered stainless tubular control arms and traction bars out back. Modern power steering and 4-wheel power brakes with 12" drilled rotors and Wilwood calipers complete the package. Classic American Racing Torq-Thrust wheels mount 17" BRG g-Force ZR radials. The only thing that rivals the exterior of this BelAir is the interior. Ron Mangus Interiors, a leader in west coast interior restoration, used high-grade plush leather perfectly dyed to match the Turquoise exterior. Seats, door panels, headliner and even the trunk are finished in leather. An Ididit column sports a custom wheel and Vintage Air handles cooling requirements. The Alpine CD/XM stereo manages a Memphis Audio sound system. From the driver's seat, it all just seems '56 right. Unlike the common Tri-Five restoration, this hardtop is one-of-one. Look at the photos, look at the trophies - that's a lot of hardware. This award winning BelAir belongs in your Tri-Five collection.
