Description for Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 1955

Cars like this 1955 Chevy are ideal hobby cars. Packing a strong-running 350 cubic inch small block under the hood and a '50s perfect two-tone color scheme, his is a car that everyone can appreciate. Fast, eliable, nd attractive, t's everything the original designers wished the 1955 Chevy could be.This car was originally the very combination you see here: code 612 India Ivory over Regal Turquoise, nd it's every bit as eye-catching today as it was in 1955. The bodywork is nicely done with no modifications and decent gaps, uggesting that someone took their time to get the car done right. The paint was refinished a few years ago, ut the net results is that the car has a soft glow that is perfect for the era and helps camouflage the machinery that lurks underneath. Using original colors is always a smart choice, articularly on a '50s car, ecause it doesn't have that modern, wkward look that some resto-mods get with modern hues. All the original trim is intact, hich also means someone spent enough restoring it to put a kid through college, nd it took a lot of hand work to get all the stainless that bright. There are a few flaws and signs of use, f course, ut for a car you can just jump in and go, t has a look that you'll always be proud to display.The interior has been restored and uses the same bright '50s color scheme to give it a very appropriate look. The seats wear new seat covers that match the body and replicate the factory patterns, nd the door panels were stitched to match, ll using durable and easy to maintain vinyl. Fresh carpets show expert binding work, nd you'll note there's a correct heel pad that helps keep things looking good for the long term. Original gauges have been restored and remain fully functional behind a custom billet steering wheel atop a polished tilt column, nd they're augmented by a quartet of auxiliary gauges plus a tachometer under the dash. There's also a digital AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit in the dash and it almost looks like it was born there. The trunk is restored to stock specs, ncluding a reproduction rubber mat, full-sized spare, nd jack assembly. Power comes from a 350 cubic inch V8 that's built to run rather than sit around in parking lots. With a Holley carb atop an aluminum intake, lectronic ignition, nd a big aluminum radiator, t's a snap to maintain and drives extremely well. Liberal doses of chrome plating make the engine bay look like someone cared, lthough it's not detailed for show. Chevy Orange paint on the block itself is a link to the past and power steering and brakes are smart upgrades that make this a car you could drive every day. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission feeds a later 10-bolt rear end, aking cruising a pleasure, nd a brand new dual exhaust system sounds great with a wonderful V8 purr at highway speeds. It rides on a set of GM Rally wheels with 235/70/15 Uniroyal blackwall radials.For all you guys looking for a well-built car that you can drive without worries, his '55 Bel Air definitely delivers. It's a car that will delight you every time you see it in the garage or climb behind the wheel, hich is what this hobby is all about. Call today!
