How do you make an icon like a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air even better? How about during the restoration you add a 6.0-liter fuel-injected V8, four-wheel disc brakes, overdrive transmission, and nice A/C interior.
You can instantly tell this one shines a bit brighter than some of the others. There was a plenty invested so that, just like your memories, this one amplifies all the best pieces. While the turquoise looks period-correct, you can also tell there's something extra-special about this Bel Air. After all, the factory could never get this level of gloss and shine. But it takes more than just great paint to be a cut-above classic. All the brightwork looks like there has been some serious money spent to make sure that the bumpers shine like mirrors and the panels line up so that the side trim continues uninterrupted. It also has aggressive touches like the large 20-inch REV alloys that hint at the enhancements found throughout the car.
The tan interior is a nice complementing color to the turquoise exterior. It has a classic look you love in a Bel Air with bench seats and the dual cowl dash. But just like the exterior, you can also tell there have been investments in the right upgrades. People will be happy to spend time in this classic thanks to modern additions, like the Bluetooth radio, seatbelts, and R134a air conditioning. You'll slip behind the steering wheel and find that it's a sporty smaller diameter unit mounted on a tilt column. This gives you a good view of the full Classic Instruments gauges nicely integrated in the factory speedometer housing.
Look in the engine bay, and you'll see a more modern Chevy icon powering this legendary coupe. It's a LS 6.0-liter V8. This fuel-injected powerhouse was expertly installed in the super clean engine bay, which is good, because there are going to be a lot of eyes on this one. Headers allow this modern powerhouse to exhale freely while adding growl to the dual exhaust. More than just upgraded for serious power, you now have even more flexibility with it thanks to the 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission that offers powerful downshifts as well as all-day overdrive highway cruising. Power steering, fresher suspension components, the grip of modern sport tires, and four-wheel disc brakes complete this upgraded cruising package.
This '55 shoebox Chevy is the classic you would build if you had the time. But instead you get to skip right to the fun part, because this cool and custom Bel Air is ready right now to have you cruising this weekend... but only if you call today!
