Description for Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 1955

This 1955 Chevrolet is done just the way you want a cool cruising classic to be. It has a classic tow-tone exterior, a loaded custom interior, plenty of V8 power, and an upgraded five-speed stick-shift to control it all. So this is the icon built for driving.
The turquoise and white are a period-correct combo that really knows how to attract attention. This was a passion project for the restorer, and so he took the time to get it right. And we know exactly why someone would take extra care with this car. The '55 Chevy launched the legendary Tri-Five era with one of the most ambitious automotive faces of the time. This car really had style with the form-fitting chrome bumper, wide grille, hint of fender overhang in the headlights, and a curvaceous hood with a fighter jet ornament taking off from the center. The body panels are complete, and they still hang with the quality that allows the full side trim to flow across the doors in an almost seamless fashion. In the rear, there's well integrated chrome bumper and just the right amount of tailfin. So this one has plenty of flair even before you spot the upgraded 17-inch American Racing Torq Thrust polished alloys.
One peek inside, and you can really understand the custom nature of this Chevy. After all, they didn't have bucket seats with this kind of comfy bolstering in '55. Yours even power adjusts to the ideal position. This is a well done gray package where you get a modern feeling on the seats, custom door panels, and carpeting. Plus, this gray makes exterior-matching turquoise really pop on the dash. There are great upgrades, like power windows, a center console, and cup holders. You also have provisions for more upgrades like air conditioning and an AM/FM/CD stereo. This is also made to be an upgraded driver's machine. That's why you have the grippy wood-rimmed steering wheel, and the tach is quite handy with the stick shift.
These Tri-Fives introduced us to the legendary small block, and just like the interior and exterior, this car keeps a classic style while also delivering an upgraded experience. So the 327 cubic-inch V8 keep the small block attitude, but in a larger displacement than what was around in '55. Not only does this have an upgraded size, but also you have performance upgrades like a 650 CFM four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and a sweet-sounding dual exhaust. Plus, there are nice sporting pieces, like the upgraded ignition, pulleys, and electric fan. And you have complete control over the full package thanks to the smooth-shifting five-speed manual transmission. This is a well-done driving package that includes power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, wide modern tires, and rear traction bars.
This is a tow-tone, first-year Tri-Five done with the features you want. So don't let this upgraded icon slip away, call today!
