1955 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210

This amazing 1955 Chevy 210 is exactly why we don't talk in absolutes around here. For example, f I had claimed the last '55 Chevy to come through was "the nicest we'd ever seen," well, hen I'd have to make up something new for this one, ecause it's simply stunning. Not only does it help keep the hyperbole under control, ut it also keeps us honest. Is this the nicest? I sure wouldn't bet against it.Shoebox Chevys demand two-tone paint, ust like the factory intended. It tends to emphasize the chrome and trim, ll of which remain intact on this custom, estored to show condition. The colors used here are from a late-model color palette, atin Silver over Sunburst Orange, nd it really works on the 60-year-old shape. All the body panels are laser straight, nd the reflections in our photo studio are proof enough that someone invested the time and effort to make this one look right. All the things that make these cars great also make them a challenge to restore, nd if your panels don't align correctly, ou're going to see it in mismatched trim. And thanks to nearly $200,000 in build costs and five years of hard labor, his one measures up in every way with nary a mark on the spectacular paint. Better yet, heck out the shaved door handles, he cool Corvette grille insert, nd all the other little tricks that make this car look awesome without erasing its identity.The completely custom interior is a big step up from 1955, nd offers all the comforts and conveniences of a modern luxury car. Those power bucket seats are as comfortable as they look, eaturing two-tone gray leather on the seating surfaces and custom embroidery to tie it together with the exterior. A custom full-length center console houses various controls for the A/C, lus speakers for the stereo system, nd makes this '55 a genuine 4-seater with a pair of matching buckets in back. The dashboard has the original design, ut it's been wrapped in trick carbon fiber accents and uses Dakota Digital gauges for a very up-to-date look. The A/C system almost vanishes under the dash, et remains effective with R134a refrigerant inside, nd a powerful AM/FM/CD entertainment system fills the car with sound. This car is so nice, ven the trunk has been fully upholstered, ighlighting some very impressive electrical work, he massive amplifier setup for the stereo, nd a remote-mounted battery. Impressive!You can't make a car look this good and not have it perform, o a 502 cubic inch "Ram Jet" V8 went under the hood. Fed by a towering fuel injection system and dressed up with awesome finned valve covers, he brutally powerful big block makes great torque and is happy trundling through traffic or hammering down the interstate with the A/C cranking. It never overheats, dles properly, nd delivers instant power at any speed thanks to careful programming of the fuel injection system. It's backed by a 4L60E 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission from Gearstar and it's built to handle more than 500 horsepower, o no worries about big power. A 9-inch rear with 3.73 gears on a limited slip puts down the power thanks to a four-link suspension with coil-overs. Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes provide massive stopping power and you won't find many chassis that are better detailed. A custom exhaust system with cut-outs sounds fantastic, nd it rides on cool Foose wheels that look like a vintage Torque Thrust but handle modern Bridgestone rubberCustoms don't get much nicer than this. Thanks to a pile of receipts that reach deep into six-figure territory, his is a car that you can drive anywhere with confidence, nd it will still draw a crowd anywhere it goes. Call today!
