Description:

1955 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210

This 55 Chevy has undergone a full frame off build. See below for build list highlight points. This car is purpose built - to drive and enjoy. She is not a garage queen.

The car has a ton of personality and is loved no matter where it goes.

She was a west coast car most of her life, landing in Arizona where the lion share of work was performed by the prior owner. The car is currently located in central MA.

The body is a natural patina - everything underneath is new age performance. Simply put - this 55 is a blast to own and drive.

There are less than 4,500 miles on the build. The brand new interior has less than 50 miles on the leather. Car is currently with my local shop having the park brake cabling connected to factory hand brake and rain gear installed. I am willing to work with buyer on HVAC contingent on sale price.

I have included many photos taking you through the build highlights. I have included exterior shots under direct sun light, different times of days, indoors / outdoors etc. to do my best to capture the true condition of the 55.If a patina car is not your style - this car is not for you. (Apologies if photos do not show up properly below - I was not able to figure out how to get the photos to list one at a time - you may have to scroll to right to see all of the photos.)

Feel free to reach out to me direct - contact information below. Can send walk around videos by request.

10-21-20 Update:While the 55 was in the shop it was found to have a small leak from the rear differential pinion seal. Further investigation determined the housing was out of spec (too much play around the bearing race). New rear end housing/tubes on order and will be installed on the car. However, the car will not be ready to ship at the end of this auction.
