1955 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210
1955 Chevrolet Bel Air
For sale by a private party is a classic all steel (except for the hood scoop) 1955 Bel Air tudor sedan, tastefully modified too modern Prostreet muscle car. The Chevy has been in the owner’s family for more than 20 years, but finished in 2012 in its current condition.
The 1965, 396 c.i. big block was bored to 402 c.i. and treated to all of the high performance “goodies” to make in excess of 500 h.p. A Turbo 400 and Currie 9” back half complete the Prostreet effect. This ’55 Chevrolet has less than 500 miles on the drive line and it has never been raced. It was built to be dependable and fast.
The purple and white lacquer paint job was applied more than 10 years ago and does show some age (please view all photos).

BUY WITH CONFIDENCE
I have been an active eBay seller of cars and other items for more than 13 years and maintained a 100% rating during that period. Approximately 5 years ago I started an online service assisting owners of Classic, Vintage, and Muscle cars to sell their vehicles without them leaving the garage. These are private individual owners who do not want to deal with the public and all of the endless phone calls, “Tire kickers”, and other nonsense that goes on when trying to sell a car. They just want someone to sell it!!
