1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible
Chassis Number: VC55A054912
The example is one of the best ‘55’ Bel Airs in existence! This 1955 factory convertible just received a complete body-off no-expense spared three-year rotisserie restoration of a 100% numbers matching car with one mile since. Every part of the car is either new or restored and retains the numbers matching drive components including the original four-barrel carbureted, dual exhaust power pack 265 V-8. An optional Power glide automatic transmission. Every nut and bolt has been removed and replaced or restored to better than original condition. The body was removed from the frame, stripped of all old paint and placed on a rotisserie. The shell was then restored and smoothed prior to the application of the professional show quality paint and trim, all matching the original build specs to the letter. The engine and transmission received professional rebuilds and were detailed to show quality. The interior was treated to all new carpet, padding, seat covers, side panels, and convertible top. This Chevy is virtually flawless in every way. The undercarriage received media blasting and painting of the frame followed by the installation of all new bushings, bearings, seals, and brakes. The Bel Air came from the factory with the best of creature comforts. Original factory options include a Wonderbar radio, power steering, power brakes, clock, and electric two speed wipers. Pictures of the restoration document that the body is 100% rust free and better than new. The original Gypsy Red and Shoreline Beige paint scheme is show quality, and along with the brand new beige convertible top make this a stunning car. The new wide whitewall tires and wire wheel covers finish off this top notch restoration. This car will make your trophy case a little more crowded.
