1955 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 Restomod

The reason pro-built cars are expensive isn't because they pay more for paint or know how to build faster engines. No, he pros know that details matter, nd this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible is an ideal example. Exceptionally well-built, t's amazing on first glance, ut you'll discover its true nature only after spending a few hours looking at all the little stuff. For you guys admiring the paint and wondering how you can get it on your own ride, 'm sorry, ut it's a proprietary mix that was concocted just for this Bel Air. There's a little Lexus silver, little extra metallic, nd a whole lot of time and effort, o you can't really get the full effect from just these photos. But see it in the sun and you'll understand why it cost what it did. Of course, ou can't just throw great paint on average bodywork, o they worked overtime to get the panels straight, ligned everything better than the guys at the factory, hen buffed it out to a mirror shine. A few trim pieces were shaved, ncluding the hood ornament and door handles, ut the traditional Bel Air side pieces are still in place and looking great. But that also means the trim had to be up to the same standards, o a boatload of cash went into fresh chrome on the bumpers, new billet grille, ully polished stainless body trim, nd razor-sharp Bel Air script. And by the way, es, hose are ultra-rare 1-piece California bumpers.Completely color-matched with custom two-tone upholstery, he interior a modern look and blends it seamlessly with the 1955 surroundings. The bucket seats are from a Lexus as well, nd were wrapped in gray leather and get this, eal stingray skin to give it an upscale look that's all-day comfortable and truly unique. There's also a center console that integrates the touch-screen navigation/entertainment system, /C controls, gnition switch, nd a cup holder, nd it's so neatly integrated that you'll wonder why the GM engineers didn't think of that back in 1955. The original dashboard has been restored using a billet insert that spans the whole width of the dash, ith custom housings underneath for the A/C vents. In back, win buckets straddle a custom console of their own, hich also includes another video screen for the entertainment system. A tilt column with a leather-wrapped wheel, ustom aluminum pedals, ower windows, ocks, nd seats are all part of the package. The trunk is upholstered in the finest tradition and includes its own video screen just for the wow factor. It has also been fitted with a new black convertible top that fits flush under a fitted gray boot.The engine bay is like artwork, ith a GM crate motor displacing 350 cubic inches and fitted with Ram Jet fuel injection. The installation is ultra-sanitary, sing a factory serpentine belt drive system, idden wiring, nicely finished firewall, nd plenty of shiny aluminum and chrome pieces. It's backed by a 700R4 4-speed automatic, nd with 3.50 gears in the 9-inch Ford rear end, his car runs as great as it looks. Stainless headers feed a custom Flowmaster exahust system that sounds suitably aggressive it's got power steering to make around-town handling that much easier. Four-wheel Wilwood discs, ully finished floors, nd a color-matched frame mean that you'll have to invest in some extra mirrors to show it off. 17-inch Torque Thrusts look great and wear 225/50/17 front and 275/50/17 rear Nitto radials that are exactly the right size for this vintage iron.This gorgeous Bel Air clearly demonstrates that beauty is truly in the details.
