1955 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210
A real-deal 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air sedan with plenty of V8 power is already pretty darn exciting. So when it looks ready for the streets and the price is so obtainable, you know it's a deal that's quite nice. The '55 Chevy has remained the enduring motoring icon because of how well it represented what we wanted in the '50s Ã¢â‚¬" great colors, plenty of chrome, and rocket-inspired designs. And this one does it best. First of all is the two-tone. The India Ivory and Harvest Gold are a period-correct combo that really knows how to attract attention. And the way the Bel Air line uses the premium trim as a separating line is a masterstroke. This follows closely to the car's original colors, but now with an extra shine from a more modern respray. The '55 Chevy launched the legendary Tri-Five era with the wide grille, form-fitting bumper, and curvaceous hood with a fighter jet ornament taking off from the center. In the rear, there's an artful design with just the right amount of tailfin. And you can enjoy all the details on this one, right down to the steel wheels that look great in a color-matched white. Inside is a factory-correct green interior. It's another great '50s tone, and the hue seems to harmonize nicely with the exterior yellow. Plus, just like the exterior, its level of completeness is amazing. So you get plenty of bright trim, door panels that mimic the exterior style line, and an artful steering wheel. The Corvette-inspired dual cowl dash still even has the original AM radio on display. The '55 Chevy is coveted for launching the small block era, but it never received something like this from the factory. Not only is the 350 cubic-inch motor larger than stock, but also it has been enhanced further with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. This extra dose of power makes for a sweeter sound out of the dual exhaust. Plus, the TH350 three-speed automatic transmission is a fine choice, because it's easy enough for cruising and stout enough to get the power to the ground. This is a true icon represented correctly and offered at an unbeatable price. So it's the kind of deal where if you think twice it might already be gone. Don't miss out, call today!
