1955 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 Restomod
One of the most iconic classics around is upgraded with a serious fuel-injected muscle to make one of the most interesting restomods around. But as you dig into the details on this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air, you're also going to discover a comfortable A/C cruiser that shines like a true gem. The '55 Chevy was the dawn of a new era. Style was at the forefront with this premium Bel Air pillarless hardtop. It became an icon of the era, and there's arguably no better way to present it than in a distinct red and white two-tone that utilizes the bright trim for its dividing line. But more than the right colors, you can tell there was a big investment in keeping it looking bright with modern clear coat and a professional hand applying. Plus, this paint had a great canvas with super-straight sheetmetal. That's why all the trim appears almost like unbroken lines flowing down the profile of the car. There was plenty more invested to keep everything from the wraparound bumpers to the jet-let hood ornament shining like mirrors. But you also have a lowered suspension, front CPP tubular control arms, Torq Thrust wheels, and large exhaust tips poking out of the rear to signal there's performance substance behind all the vintage style. The same red and white appeal of the exterior is continued to the interior for a show-worthy uniform look inside & out. This has a great vintage feeling with the artful Bel Air steering wheel and the Corvette-style dual cowl dash. But this isn't a total time capsule feeling. It has subtle but significant upgrades, like a retro-style AM/FM/cassette stereo w/digital tuner. Everyone can stay cool even with the windows down on this hardtop thanks to modern R134a air conditioning. Plus, as you spot upgrades like the Lokar floor shifter, auxiliary gauges, and large column-mounted tach, it's a clear signal there's something special under the hood. The engine bay is filled with enormous big block power. And while 502 cubic-inches is enough of an upgrade for most of us, this one really takes it to a whole new level. GM's Ram Jet fuel injection feeds the monster motor. Plus, it exhales with serious thunder as long tube headers add even more power while also contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. The whole setup looks clean and mean thanks to plenty of polished components, like the alternator, compressor, water pump, and pulleys. And you can show off this great looking total package everywhere thanks to good driving features, such as power steering, CPP power brakes w/discs up front, and a smooth shifting TH400 three-speed automatic transmission sending power to a 12-bolt rear end, kept in place with traction bars. There's also large aluminum radiator to help keep this running cool even when you're in traffic with the A/C pumping. Here's an icon that has all the right investment to retain your classic pieces while also giving you a huge upgrade in power. It's a terrific restomod, and it's ready for the first person who grabs this deal. Call now!
