Vehicle Description

Have you heard the story about the kids who took a ’56 Bel Air on a joyride and left it at a gas station?  No? Ask us and we will share it. If you know the story then you know one of the many cool things that make these cars special!

This 205HP 4-barrel V8 two-door hardtop Bel Air is a great local show winning example. The powerglide transmission, power steering, and power brakes make this an easy to enjoy driver and parade car. The wide whitewall tires have been upgraded to radials making the car even more fun to drive while keeping the classic look.

Originally Matador red, the restorer finished this example adding the second body color.  The paint glistens yet is outshined by the plentiful polished chrome and stainless brightwork.  The door, hood, and trunk gaps are all excellent and open and close as they should. The body is solid and straight. The underside of the car is undercoated with solid pans and frame.

The interior is finished as she came from the factory, in red vinyl with red and taupe cloth seating. The interior is clean and complete with little extras like the tissue holder and the transmission instruction sheet on the visor. The trunk even has the complete jack kit that vanished from so many of these cars.

There is a lot that makes this car special, including the bumper dress-up option.  This is a beautiful LA built example. Oh, the fun you will have in this great classic. Call or text today!
