As one of the most iconic nameplates of the 50s, the Bel Air was designed for clientele that wanted to feel special. The car was meant to stand out, be noticed, and remind everyone on the road that Chevrolet and their Bel Air drivers were a tier above everyone else. With the success of the debut model, the second-gen Bel Air, as featured here, was released in 1955, and along with a complete redesign, the ride itself was significantly improved. GM's "Hot One" was very well received and was the highlight of motor magazines around the world. This 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible Restomod was completed in 2020 while maintaining its numbers and is currently up for sale.
Chevrolet was aware that the second-generation Bel Air had to look the part if it wanted to build on its legacy, and so the designers were asked not to hold back. Chrome was abundant, and even a page out of Ferrari's book was taken to design the front grille. While a chance to witness automotive craftsmanship of such degree is rare, this 55 Restomod allows us to go back in time. The Coral and White two-tone paint job is a tribute to subtle elegance, the reportedly new chrome bumpers and glass parts add in the bling, and the updated Bel Air badges remind us of its significance. The coral theme continues within the interior, this time in the form of plush leather seats envisioned to accommodate worthy occupants. A look across the gleaming chrome dashboard will reveal a new classic radio. There is always the option to drive in comfort via the classic air conditioning unit that will keep you cool when you throw on the new convertible top.
Powering this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible is its rebuilt original 265ci small block V8 engine along with a rebuilt automatic transmission. The owner also reported that the car has also been fitted with a new radiator, gas tank, and gas filler.
