1955 Chevrolet Bel Candy Apple Red & Grey
Why Is This Car Special
The '55 Chevy was the first successful Chevrolet with an optional V8 engine, the new 265-cubic-inch overhead valve V8 was designed to be smaller, lighter, and more powerful than previous V8s in the auto industry.
The completely restored 1955 Chevy Bel Air we have at Skyway Classics has a much more potent drive train than that.
The engine in ours is a much modified big block GM Crate Motor with horsepower additives and accessories on it like Edelbrock Intake, tube headers, performance carb, serpentine belt drive, oversized radiator, performance electronics, stainless plumbing, Chevrolet Valve Covers, open element air cleaner, dual exhaust, that all important in Florida, air conditioning, and more.
The tranny an automatic on the column and all the power is handled out the back by is performance rear end. The painted and detailed chassis has new shocks, 4-wheel disc brakes, air suspension and performance A-arms in the front.
As you can see, the custom two-tone matching color split bench seat interior has a matching rear seat, great door panels and carpet, painted dash with aluminum and chrome trim, custom steering wheel, seatbelts, and headliner. This 55 is as nice and comfortable as you will ever find.
Our 1955 has the classic look and feel as it did back when it was new, only better this time around with its two-tone Candy Apple Red and Grey paint is spectacular. It has new paint and has been restored and has that new look and feel.
The paint combination is great looking as well as very nice. The front and rear chrome bumpers are nice as is all the trim. The 55 rides on wide performance tires and custom mag wheels. Most all of the suspension and running components of this Bel Air has been replaced and improved to make it ride as great as it looks.
The 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air we have at Skyway Classics has the look as it did in 1955, only better and with a lot more power, creature comforts and better handling.
It is great to look at, great mechanicals, and a blast to take to shows and cruises. Come see it today.
