Description of 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 Bel Air Conv

This is a full Body-Off high quality restoration of a Chevy Bel Air convertible. Every nut and bolt was touched during the extensive (and expensive) restoration. It has just a tad bit of patina now as it has been about ten years since restoration making this the perfect Bel Air to show at concours enjoy on tours or as a weekend cruiser! Every aspect of this Bel Air is top notch. This Bel Air comes complete with it's California Black Plate license.

This Bel Air was restored back to the factory correct colors of Neptune Green and Sea Mist Green two tone livery (Paint Code 604S) with the correct Green Interior (Trim Code 526). Recently the present owner replaced the soft top with a new white vinyl replacement. The car is stunning! We love the continental kit!

This Bel Air is loaded with options! It has a numbers matching 265 cu in "Power Pak" V8 with 180 hp fitted with the Powerglide automatic transmission. For ease of driving this Bel Air has power brakes power steering and a power soft top. Other accessories include: WonderBar radio Continental kit Kleenex dispenser electric clock and many deluxe cosmetic accessories.

Everything works well and the car performs beautifully. More than anything the car needs to be driven and enjoyed more frequently. For the past eight years this Bel Air has been owned by a collector in Southern California that has driven it sparingly. We now offer it for sale on his behalf. Please review the 100 Photos in the Gallery and the detailed Inspection Video and Test Drive!!

Cosmetically everything was restored to very high standards. There are no dents or scratches but there are some fine spider web cracking in the darker green metalic portion of the paint in certain areas. These could be left as they are or the paint could be repaired in these areas. We would enjoy the car as is without doing anything except driving it and taking it to concours events!

The Bel Air comes with a bra to keep the front end free of bugs and chips. Also included is a car cover. We do not have photos or receipts for the restoration as it was bought eight years ago fully restored. But the condition of the car speaks for itself!

PRICING: We have priced this Bel Air to sell!! The Hagerty Price Guide has the No. 2 Condition Bel Air convertible valued at $90900. NADA has the High Retail value at $107140. The cost of restoration alone to the standard of this Bel Air is over $100000!

This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a gorgeous '55 Chevy Bel Air convertible that is beautifully restored and ready for your enjoyment! We encourage you to have the car inspected at our Temecula wine country facility. For more information and details please call Harry Clark at 951.901.5088 or email us at harry@classicpromenade.com.
