1956 Chevrolet Bel Air

1956 Chevrolet Bel Air

The Bel Air received a face-lift with a more conventional full-width grille, pleasing those customers who didn't favor the Ferrari inspired 1955 front end. Distinctive two-tone bodyside moldings and graceful wheel openings completed the "speedline" restyling. The car also had unique rectangular front marker lights and the rear lights were incorporated into a single housing with the left one concealing the gas filler - an idea popularized on Cadillac. Chevy engineer, Zora Arkus Duntov set a new endurance/speed record in 1956 for an automobile ascending Pikes Peak.

This stunning Bel Air was the recipient of a comprehensive off-frame restoration with great attention to detail. The look of an original with some hidden little secrets lurking just beneath the surface. This beauty was fitted with a modern climate control system with heat and air conditioning along with power steering and power disc brakes to make this classic a breeze to drive. It is finished in the original and iconic India Ivory / Matador Red paint and Red /Ivory upholstery. Additional features include dual mirrors, seat belts and electric cooling fan. A modern 350 V8 with an automatic transmission powers this car down the road effortlessly and it sits atop 15” wheels with proper hub caps and wide whitewall radial tires.
