1955 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 LS1 RestomodIconic on the outside, custom/comfy on the inside, a fully adjustable air ride suspension underneath it all, and a powerful fuel-injected V8 under the hood. You might have already fallen in love at first sight with this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air restomod, but it only gets better the deeper you dig.
The exterior is that perfect blend of vintage and upgraded. After all, there is arguably no better recognized shape than the Tri-Five Chevys, but you can also instantly tell this one is extra special. The body panels have the kind of straightness that only comes from taking real time and huge money to get right. And this investment pays off when it's the canvas for an artfully slick application of a modern bronze paint. The paint has such a nice metallic element that they expertly deleted much of the trim just so you could get an uninterrupted view of the shine as it shows off those legendary '55 Chevy curves. Of course, the side trim was retained, because it's a true symbol that this is a premium Bel Air. In fact, the whole presentation is first-class. They made sure the classic brightwork elements looked awesome in all the right places, like the wraparound chrome bumpers, grille, and the trim that outlines the iconic pillarless hardtop. And that is blended with well-integrated newer pieces, like the polished Torq Thrust wheels. They have a sporty 18/20 inch front/rear stance, but it all tucks into the bodywork nicely when you let the adjustable air ride shocks sit nice and low at the car shows.
The award-worthy custom presentation continues when you open the door. It starts with the seats. Since people can get a great look inside any time your roll down all the windows on this hardtop, the seats were given a terrific custom stich design and finished in a supple leather. Not only does the front get individual buckets, but thanks to ta full-length center console, so do the rear, too. The carpeting, center console, suede headliner, and custom door panels all are done with a uniform look and quality to really remain impressive. This has all the best features, like an AM/FM/CD stereo with flip-up screen, full air ride controls, cup holders, and an air conditioning system running modern R134a refrigerant (it likely just needs a recharge to blow fully cold again.) The custom steering wheel is an artful take on the Chevy design, and the center spokes even look like the chevron that was part of the classic front badging. It's mounted on a tilt column to give you a full view of the upgraded dash with crisp and clear Classic Instruments gauges.
Lift the hood, and you'll see another Chevy icon powering this legendary coupe. The fuel-injected LS1 V8 was borrowed from the 4th gen Camaro program, but with the smooth color-matched inner walls and the custom Bel Air engine covers, this looks like has been here since day one. Not only do you have a modern motor giving you plenty of modern power, but this one has even been updated to breathe better with an upgraded intake and a set of headers feeding the H-pipe dual exhaust. It's mated to the Camaro's correct 4L60E four-speed transmission, and so the full package was built to give you both speedy performance and easy overdrive cruising. One reason to take the air ride shock nice and high is so you can put a mirror under this one to show off the color-matched pieces, like the tubular front A-arms and full underside of the body (true signs of a good frame-off restoration.) And power steering, a four-wheel power disc brakes upgrade, and modern ZR-rated tires are all about making this custom Bel Air a terrific driver, too.
This is the iconic coupe upgraded for both show and go. It's the build that leaves you wanting for nothing. So the only way you'll be disappointed is if you miss out on this custom '55 Chevy. Call today!!!
