We acquired this ’55 Bel Air from a serious car guy that we have purchased quite a few high end cars from over the years. Many of the cars we have purchased from him have been cars he purchased, customized and then got bored quickly after the build and decided to sell. This Bel Air was a slightly different story.  He actually owned this car quite a few years and it was his go to car for shows and cruise ins.  Over the years it accumulated a few minor cosmetic blems like rock chips and last year he decided to treat it to some serious upgrades both cosmetically and under the hood.  The end result is a jaw-dropping, ground pounding, resto-modded ’55 Bel Air Hot Rod that is set up to Show and Go!!!!  Once he finished with  this Bel Air he again got the itch to move on to the next project so he asked me if i wanted it and within hours I wired him the funds and it was on its way to us.  As you will see in the pictures and info that follow he sunk some serious $$$$$ in to this build!!! It was already a really nice rust free Bel Air when he started but it only had a mild crate 350 in it and lacked the upgrades he has learned to love.  Well, as you will see this car is now a true Show Piece that is sure to win shows and catch all the attention you can handle wherever you go.  It was built to be driven and to get you there in a hurry when needed!!!  I will do my best to include enough large images, a video so you can hear it running, and an honest description to help you decide if this Hot Rod belongs in your collection!  There are quite a few large images so give them a few minutes to load! Sit back and enjoy!!
As I mentioned the body on this ’55 was already in awesome condition before it was treated to its new coat of paint about a year ago.  The color combination is outstanding! The primary color is Black Cherry metallic and the accent color is Pearl white metallic. The Black Cherry glistens in the sun where you will see more of the burgundy/cherry tone and in the shade and at night it looks almost black. I tried to take pics of the car in different lights and different times of day so you could get a sense of how awesome the color pops. The body itself is extremely straight and body panel fit is awesome and most likely better then when it was new.  I would say the body is near flawless as I am sure there are probably a few extremely tiny rock chips or flaws I may have missed.  Chrome and stainless is either new or polished and look great. All of the windows are tinted and the glass is in beautiful condition.  Overall the body is extremely original with just a few subtle touches like the Chevy emblem in the trunk that is actually an added brake light.  I think the pictures will give you a great sense for how nice it is…here is a walk around tour of the body:

As soon as you open the drivers side door you will know this is not just another nice ’55 Bel Air.  With close to $20,000 spent on the interior the fresh smell of leather fills the interior as the contoured custom front and rear seats welcome you.  Very tastefully done to keep with the original look of the Bel Air but with the same high end quality as the rest of this Hot Rod. There is plenty of room for drivers and passengers of all sizes! The two tone Grey leather accents the Black Cherry exterior beautifully. Custom center console houses the B&M shifter with custom shifter knob and A/c vents. Custom made steering wheel on a great tilt column. Original looking dash completely redone and upgraded with an awesome set of Dakota Digital gauges and quartz clock in stock location that works. All of the lights and gauges appear to be working correctly although the speedometer seems to read a bit fast. Great sounding stereo with the Custom Autosound retro look digital unit with subwoofer neatly mounted in trunk.  Connection for your i-pod or phone neatly installed in the ash tray. Sure fit Vintage air conditioning neatly installed to keep you icy cold when needed.  Again, I think the pictures will demonstrate the quality of this luxury custom interior. Take a look:

One thing is for sure, this ’55 Bel Air is not just a thing of beauty….she is also a beast on the road and has all the Horsepower you could possibly need under the hood nicely tamed so that she can be driven and enjoyed at any speed! The motor is still being broken in with under 250 miles since it was built and installed.  This motor was built by a well known engine builder,  “The Gunner”, Gunter Guering.  The motor started as a  454, 4-bolt truck block that was bored , decked and notched for a Stroker making it a 505 Cubic Inch generating a reported 660 horsepower. Block and balance work was done by Mancini Machine shop. A few of the notable components are Eagle Stroker crank, rods and pistons. Aluminum heads, 10.5 compression, Comp Solid lifter Roller camshaft, Dart air gap intake manifold, Quick fuel 850 carburetor, etc… Patriot ceramic coated headers breathe out the 3″ aluminum exhaust rumbling through Hooker arrow chamber mufflers. Amazing handling and suspension thanks to the CCP 540 gear Power steering, 2″ drop spindles up front and 2″ drop in the rear, tubular A-arms and Bilstein shocks on all 4 corners.  The power from this 505 Big block is transferred to the rear wheels through the 4L80E overdrive automatic transmission with TCI programmable controller.  There is currently a 2800 stall converter and the shifter is a B&M shifter which allows you to bump through the gears for some added fun if desired. New 4 core radiator and this big block runs super cool with no overheating issues!!  Wilwood 4 wheel disc brake system stops you as needed.  Great stance with the Polished Coy wheels providing a great footprint at all 4 corners wrapped in like new set of Nexxen performance rubber.  Engine bay is neatly detailed and valve covers and air cleaner painted in a black chrome finish.  Take a look and then be sure to listen to the video so you can hear this baby rumble!!!

IF YOU HAVE GOTTEN THIS FAR THEN YOU DESERVE TO HEAR THIS BABY START UP AND RUNNING….THERE IS NOTHING LIKE THE SOUND OF A STROKED BIG BLOCK WITH A LOPY CAM BREATHING OUT 3″ ALUMINUM PIPES WITH GREAT SOUNDING MUFFLERS….CLICK THE ARROW TO START AND CRANK UP YOUR VOLUME:
 

Here is a look at the suspension and undercarriage.  The undercarriage is rock solid with no rust issues.  Inside of the trunk has been neatly detailed out with custom enclosures wrapped in gray leather to match the interior. Optima battery and sub woofer neatly hidden behind the rear seat.

Hopefully you will agree that this ’55 is pretty darn sweet. I think you will find that it looks as good or better in person. You will be able to get in and drive it the day it arrives at your driveway and you will be making a great investment in a proven Classic that has had a ton of money spent getting it to this level. There is no doubt that you should not build it for what you can buy it for. If you would like to discuss a price that can put this Bel Air in your garage before the next car guy or gal gets it then feel free to call me at 770-359-8400 to discuss it.
