Although GM built the Bel Air Model for 25 plus years, the years of 1955,1956 and 1957 were the most iconic of all the Bel-Air models. In 1955 the Chevrolet's full size model received all new styling and power. It was call the “Hot One” in GM's advertising campaign. The new styling was crisp and clean. The car also gained a V8 engine option featuring a modern, overhead valve high compression, long stroke design that was so good that it remained in production in various forms, for decades.

Brand new for 1956 was a redesign of the front grill, rear wheel openings and a two-tone body side treatment.

What he have is an over-the-top restoration and a mild custom that was the product of years of meticulous restoration. There has not been one thing over-looked in this wonderful car starting with the exterior that has been painted with very high quality Glasurit paint, using a mix of gunmetal gray and charcoal metallic for the gray and antique white for the contrast. The outstanding paint restoration was completed by nationally known restorer Randy Church, from St. Charles, MI. Every piece of trim and chrome was hand polished to perfection before installed and every piece of trim was installed to factory specifications. All of the hand cut glass was tinted and custom gray leather interior done by Scott's interior in Louisville, KY finish the body of this car.

The engine is a 1963 283 CI V-8 that was bored out to a 301 CI mated to a Holley 600 4-Barrel and dual exhaust. The transmission is a built Muncie 4-speed manual transmission connected to a 3:55 differential. Connecting everything together is a set of 15” BF Goodrich TA radials mounted to a set of original Cragar SS wheels.

This is a well-documented total restoration with all receipts. The Bel-Air featured here has also been featured in many magazines and articles, it is also the reciipient of many 1st place finishes at almost every car show it has entered including a couple concourses. Although this is not an original Bel-Air, this car was built so that it could be taken back to stock appearance with not a lot of effort.

This car is in wonderful running and driving condition with no leaks or smoke and can be driven or shown immediately.
