Description for Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 1955

You already know how much of an icon the Tri-Five Chevys are, so imagine our delight when this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air showed up with slick two-tone paint, a fuel-injected performance small block, a custom interior, and four-on-the-floor. It's a turn-key rumbling street machine for one of the best prices you'll find for a complete real-deal Bel Air coupe. This is a unique take on an American icon. The Calypso Coral and Shadow Gray was a two-tone package offered in... '55, but the superior gloss on this one is courtesy of a more modern re-spray. In fact, it has so much luster that the front emblems were removed so you could see how the color cascades over the rounded hood. It sets the tone perfectly for how you want to be seen in this coupe - a great classic that has been enhanced for a little more "look at me!" attitude that happened back in the day. The mirror-like bumpers, dual exhaust, and Weld racing wheels all come together in a custom package that could be straight out of American Graffiti. But more than just nostalgia, make sure you take some time to look at how it gets the fundamentals correct. All the body panels fit well, the doors close with authority, and all the hard to find intricate trim is complete. The same coral and gray attitude on the exterior is continued on the custom interior. You see this everywhere, including the dash, headliner, carpeting, trunk, and artful door panels. You'll especially love the way this looks on the custom cloth seats, which are now far plusher than anything that came from the factory. In total, it creates the quality uniform appearance that everyone (including judges) love to see at the car shows. More than just look outstanding, this Bel Air was built to enjoy. That's why you have great upgrades like the AM/FM/cassette stereo that utilizes a digital tuner but classic knob style-appearance. And the best treats are reserved just for you. A grippy leather-wrapped Lecarra steering wheel is mounted on an Ididit tilt column. Plus, you have a full set of auxiliary gauges. This includes a large tach, which is particularly handy with the Hurst performance shifter. We love these '55 Chevy for plenty of reasons, including because they debuted the small-block V8. But one look under the hood, and you know it's a much more modern powerplant. This one takes the small block tradition and brings it into the modern age with a 350 cubic-inch fuel-injected crate motor. It looks terrific with the polished intake, valve covers, pulleys, and so much more. Plus, these Ram Jet V8s are built to deliver around 350 horsepower right out of the box. That makes this V8 an upgrade in style and substance. There's a set of long tube headers feeding the rumbling dual exhaust. Best of all, you have complete control over this modern V8 power and its thunderous soundtrack thanks to the Muncie M21 close-ratio four-speed manual transmission. No matter if you're out to own the streets or just cruising, you'll appreciate the Be Cool aluminum radiator that keeps this powerful package running the right temp. Plus, you've got great driving features like power steering, front disc brakes, and sway bars front & rear. This Bel Air takes all the iconic elements and adds all the right comfort, appearance, and performance upgrades. It's a total package classic is turn-key ready right now. So you know it won't wait around long. Call today!!!
