1955 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210
How do you make an icon like a 1955 Chevrolet coupe even better? How about during the restoration you add nice suspension upgrades, an A/C interior, and the modern heart borrowed from a fuel-injected Corvette.
You can instantly tell this one shines a bit brighter than some of the others. There was a plenty invested so that while this looks period-correct, you can also tell there's something extra-special about this coupe. It starts with the paint. This 210 coupe has a great period-correct two-tone turquoise and white separated by the proper trim lines. It instantly endures this first-year shoebox Chevy to a bygone era. But just like your memories, this one amplifies all the best pieces. After all, the factory could never get this level of gloss and shine. But it takes more than just great paint to be a cut-above classic. All the brightwork looks like there has been some serious money spent to make sure that the bumpers shine like mirrors and the panels line up so that the side trim continues uninterrupted. It also has aggressive touches like the large dual exhaust tips and 17-inch Coys alloys that hint at the enhancements found throughout the car.
Perfectly complimenting the handsome exterior is a wonderful blue and white interior. And more than just look great, this fully-coordinated package has some great comfort upgrades like the custom door panels with long armrests, power steering, and center console with always-welcomed cup holders. If your starting to think this is perfect vehicle to enjoy with family and friends, then the upgraded AM/FM/cassette player with digital tuner and modern R134a air conditioning should really seal the deal. But even when it's just you going for a solo cruise, this Chevy will keep you happy. After all, if the full gauge package didn't clue you in on the big upgrade under the hood, then the tilt column with Corvette-inspired steering wheel certainly will.
Look in the engine bay, and you'll see a modern Chevy icon powering this legendary coupe. It's an LS1 V8 motor from a C5 Corvette. This fuel-injected powerhouse was expertly installed in the super clean engine bay, which is good, because there are going to be a lot of eyes on this one. But more than just look great, these were rated from the factory with 350hp. But it takes more than just a motor to be a true upgraded classic. A large aluminum radiator keeps the motor running optimal even if you're in traffic with the A/C pumping. Plus, the 4L60-E four-speed automatic transmission was built to give this LS1 powerful downshifts and all-day overdrive highway cruising. The suspension has also been upgraded to include thick sway bars front & rear, as well as a terrific vented & slotted four-wheel disc brake package.
This '55 shoebox Chevy is the classic you would build if you had the time. But instead you get to skip right to the fun part, and this cool coupe can have you cruising this weekend... but only if you call today!
