Description for Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 1956

When you imagine period-correct motoring, this is what the '50s will look like. This 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air sedan has a great two-tone appearance, a ton of originality, and a period-correct V8. So when something this distinct is also so affordable, then it's a deal worth digging into deeper.
The '56 Chevy has remained the enduring motoring icon because of how well it represented what we wanted in the '50s daring colors, plenty of chrome, and rocket-inspired designs and this one does it best. First of all is the two-tone. The Grecian Gold and Calypso Cream are a period-correct combo that really know how to attract attention. And the way the Bel Air line has that harpoon of color running the full profile is an exclusive touch for this year that no factory would ever dare try again. And speaking of exclusive to '56, the grille is a great piece. Larger than '55 and sleeker than '57, you can easily recognize this model from a long way away. Plus, with the trim, bumpers, wheel covers, and all the emblems complete, this is total package that is worth its weight in exclusive brightwork. And the details like the hood ornament and taillights are a great finishing touch to remind us that this Chevy was at the dawn of the jet age.
The cream theme continues on the inside, and it's now joined by a well-coordinated and comfortable black cloth. This is the factory-correct color combo, just like the exterior, its level of completeness is amazing. So you know there was a ton spent on a total restoration. You get plenty of bright trim, door panels that mimic the exterior style line, and an artful steering wheel. The Corvette-inspired dual cowl dash still even has the original AM radio on display.
Part of what makes these cars a legend is that the Tri-Fives were the ones to introduce the Chevy small block V8. So you'll be happy to lift the hood and see a red 265 cubic-inch V8 boldly radiating from within the dark engine bay. More than just look correct with the cursive valve covers and huge factory oil bath air cleaner on top, you also get nice performance with a Rochester four-barrel carburetor. In fact, with the Powerglide automatic transmission and power brakes, this is a fantastic cruiser. Plus, even the suspension received attention in this restoration, so it not only has a solid gold appearance, but also it has a solid feeling on the road.
This is the distinct and restored Bel Air that's priced to move. So don't admire too long or this might be gone. Call today!!!
