1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Hard Top

1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Hard Top in Lutz Florida

 Vehicle Description
An awesome shine, a supple leather interior, cold-blowing A/C, an overdrive transmission, and an exceptionally strong V8... these are the things to expect from a build with only about 500 miles on it in total. So when this kind of total investment has been made on an icon like this 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Hard Top, you realize its a true stunner over every inch (even the undercarriage.)br / br / Its particularly nice to come across a 56 Bel Air coupe. It has the awesome pillarless hardtop profile that unites it with its Tri-Five siblings, but these also had the right sense of style all their own. So its great to see a car with all the right investments to really highlight this flair. The two-tone is Burgundy Red Metallic and Pearl White Metallic so you know it was made to radiate in the sunshine. The consignor claims this was given a complete frame-off restoration five years ago. So not only does the paint look beautiful, but the panels have a terrific fit, too. The high contrast colors are especially noticeable on the 56 Bel Airs exclusive trim theme that has the white streak sweeping up the side and through the doorline like an unbroken line. In fact, the trim looks like new, so its like a sharp spear piercing its way through the deep red. All the other brightwork shines brilliantly, too, inducing classic pieces like the year-specific grille, jet-inspired hood ornament, and wraparound chrome bumpers. And those modern 18-inch alloys fit in with the overall shine of the car while also announcing its built to be a modern and custom / br / The restoration of the metal may have been a short time ago, but the interior is even younger. According to the consignor, this is fresh leather-lined luxury that was done only two years ago. They took the time to give you thoughtful vintage details, like the split bench seat and correct rubber mats, but the plushness here is the kind of comfy that they could never give you in the 1950s. Everything here is thoughtfully placed to make this integrated an upgrade. For example, the newer air conditioning controls are where the old heater sliders were, and the vents are included in the dash. The radio has a classic AM/FM look, but theres an aux input under the dash for your iPod. The steering wheel is a Bel Air unit. But from 1958 and its on a tilt column, to give you a hint of upgrades. And while the digital gauges are pure modern, its a fully upgraded package (including the clock) and it all glows red to coordinate with the / br / The engine bay has the smooth inner walls, polished components, and overall tidy look of a freshly upgraded machine. The Tri-Fives introduced the Chevy small block V8s but this one goes further than stock. Its a 350 cubic-inch motor upgraded with a Holley four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock Performer intake. It has the right supporting feature, including a March billet pulley system, Griffin aluminum radiator, and temperature controlled dual electric fans. Its a solid overall setup that really loves to run strong. So its great to see it paired with a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive thats great for journeys near or far. Power steering, power brakes, front discs, and the grip of modern sport tires are all part of this elevated driving experience. br / br / When you love to drive and show off your classics (and fill the trunk with awards) its going to be hard to find something better than this fully restored Bel Air.
