Ever since its first generation, the Chevrolet Bel Air was meant to be a status symbol, a vehicle that stood out and made a statement. Nothing about this full-sized sedan is discreet. You could say it was meant for those who smoked cigars and drank whisky in the evenings, and when it hit the road, it was these exact people who gravitated to the Bel-Air, and before long, the car became one of the most iconic American automobiles of its time. This particular model rolled out of the factory nearly seven decades ago but still maintains its iconic aesthetic. Intended for the exceptional, this 1950s classic now has a breath of fresh air with a few modern additions and enhancements, bringing a touch of modernity to this Bel-Air Convertible. It's reported that the car comes with the owner's manual and repair manual, perfect for a collector, and all receipts are included, as well as the un-installed fender skirts of the car. This car is a blast from the past for the modern era, the perfect vehicle for anyone who wishes to bring a piece of the 50s prestige back again.
From the curvaceous design stretching front to back, the green and white combination, and the Chevrolet logo in the front, this 1955 Bel-Air Convertible has the suave appeal from the 50s that we all love. You could say the design of the Bel-Air has aged like fine wine and stands out from the boring automobiles of the modern era. The black exterior adds to the mystique and sets a great contrast with the chrome elements that gleam in the light. The chrome bumpers and bumper guards, dual headlights with Tri-Bar lenses, Cragar series 342 wheels with chrome center caps, whitewall tires, and all work great together for this all-American classic. Stepping inside, you're welcomed into a red interior that can be covered with a white convertible top. But once down, you're instantly placed in a classic interior with the front bench seat, floor-mounted shifter, and red dashboard. You'll also notice the RetroSound Wonderbar AM/FM Radio with Bluetooth functionality, a digital odometer, and Dakota Digital Analog gauge cluster, a tilt steering column with power steering, and more. But rest assured, the original aesthetic of the Bel-Air has been well preserved.
This Bel-Air features a massive 350ci V8 paired with a 5-speed manual transmission that puts out more than enough power to the wheels. The chrome alternator of this car should be mentioned, along with the fact that this car has undergone a recent oil change. Handling is not a worry either, thanks to the independent front suspension and a solid rear-drive axle. 4-wheel power disk brakes with a Chrome Power brake booster and master cylinder only help you feel more confident with this Bel-Air on the road, perfect for a sunny morning with the top down.
