Description for Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 1956

More pictures available at: http://s172. photobucket. com/user/amandat86/library/ You are looking at a very rare 1956 Business Coupe. This model has the lowest production numbers of any 1956 Chevrolet. (Right next to the Nomad) There are very few of these business coupes still in existence today. The 150 was mainly conceived as a fleet model sold from 1953 to 1957 and little effort was spent marketing it to the average buyer. It was most popular with police. state governments. small businesses. economy-minded consumers and hot rodders. Chevrolet sold substantially less one-fifties than two-tens or Bel Airs in every year of its life. In 1956. Chevrolet's mildly disguised race package was more commonly referred to as the "Business Coupe". These Vehicles were the plain vanilla versions of the "police package" cars and were available only in the 2 door post body style. They featured a sparse option list. had rubber floor mats in place of carpeting. fixed rear windows. and an item known as a package tray which consisted of a 3/8 inch fiberboard where the back seat was originally intended to be. This beautiful. understated. fully restored and painted in its original color (Indian Ivory) rare Chevy Business Coupe is running with a 355 Chevy engine (350 bored 30 over) with a mild thumper cam and puts out approximately 300 HP. The transmission is a turbo 350 with a shift kit. The rear original to the car we are approximating to be a 3:23. AT 60 MPH the car is taching at 2000 RPM. This rare beauty can be driven anywhere in comfort and handles as well as it looks. Only 4600 miles has been put on this classic since the restoration. Additional features of this 1956 Chevy include: A new interior restored to as original as was practical. power steering. power disc brakes (front). brushed aluminum tilt steering column. a sun tach. auto meter fully mechanical gauges. tinted windows. a rear seat. perfect chrome. cragar SST's with Kelly 205/65R15 92T on the front and 255/70R15 108S on the rear. She has aluminized exhaust. flow masters with welded chrome tips. an Edlebrock carburetor. and Edlebrock polished manifold. a chrome alternator and bracket kit. an aluminum radiator with an aluminum overflow. A transmission cooler. and a new power steering pump. The "old school stance" was accomplished by using A/C springs in the front and 5 leaf springs in the rear. Seat belts front and rear were also installed. This rare Chevy is a truly beautiful example of automotive history and is sure to appreciate in value while she is being enjoyed. Lovingly owned and maintained by a master mechanic. She is in need of nothing but a new owner to continue to pamper her. Having spent almost 90% of her life in Alabama. then living in North Carolina. she then was purchased by the current owner here in Pennsylvania where she has been for the last 6 years. This is a rust free car. If you are looking for a classic TRI 5 Chevy or specifically a rare 56. don't miss out on this outstanding car. You will not be disappointed.
