1956 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 Description:

If you're itching to get behind the wheel of an undeniable timeless classic, it would be awfully difficult to do better than this 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air. It's a member of a class of mid-'50s Chevys that forged an unbreakable link as part of true American car culture and, with its outstanding curb appeal and meticulously restored look, would be equally at home making an impact on the local car show circuit as it would pulling focus on the boulevard. The silver and white, two-tone paint scheme is a great choice - injecting an element of subdued class. It's been well-applied and looks very sharp in this setting, showing a smooth texture and combining with a very strong clearcoat that provides a magnetic shine. Bel Airs upped their chrome game as the early '50s gave way to the middle of the decade and this '56 shows that trend off to great effect - the collection of chrome on display here - including the signature beefy Bel Air bumper, front grille, and extensive side trim that marks this as an upper crust Chevy offering - is all looking its finest. Shaved door handles add an air of aftermarket customization and, even upon closer inspection, the exterior alignment on this classic will impress - its body lines are really precise. It is, simply put, a very impressive presentation of one of America's most beloved and instantly recognizable classic cars. The two-tone black and white vinyl interior features a refreshingly stock and period correct look. The bench seating in both front and back is plushly padded and you won't find much in the way of wear on its surfaces. There's plenty of real estate inside - ample leg room in front and back, as well as abundant shoulder room, so you'll want to invite your friends along on your journeys. As you log the miles, there will be plenty of audio options at your disposal - the retro-styled AM/FM/CD stereo also offers iPod connectivity that opens up a whole world of content and combines with the CD changer and amp in the trunk to fill the cabin with sound. The dash area is another very strong feature, with its dual-cove configuration housing both a cluster of clear gauges that are joined by a trio of aftermarket counterparts below, as well as super-sharp Bel Air script that sits over a generously proportioned and fully functional analog clock. The trunk area is as tidy as you could possibly want, with its floor and sides lined with clean, black carpeting and a full-size spare standing by in its proper vertical position. A 350 cubic inch V8 fitted with a high-lift cam powers this classic and it's in very good form as it sits in a very clean, well detailed engine bay, armed with a pair of Edelbrock carbs and intake manifold on top and a pair of headers to open up its breathing. An oblong chrome air cleaner sits over the carbs and the chrome Corvette-branded valve covers it wears look great next to the chrome alternator. The powerplant combines with a 4-speed manual Muncie transmission that puts maximum control of this classic in your hands and rounds out a very smoothly-functioning drivetrain. This very impressive Chevy plies its head-turning powers on a set of distinctive steel wheels wrapped with BF Goodrich Silvertown white walls for just the right period-correct look. The undercarriage no doubt received its share of attention during the restoration process - it looks very solid and straight. Carrying all the vintage charisma you could possibly want and restored with precision, this 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air would be a great score. Call today!
