This Tropical Turquoise and India Ivory ’56 Bel Air was owned by a great car guy in Texas for the past 6 years.  He purchased it from another car enthusiast in Tennessee who believed this Tri-Five Chevy had spent most, if not all of its live in the Tennessee area. The last restoration was done about 10 years ago on a rust free body.  The gentleman we bought it from had owned several 55-57 Bel Airs over the years in addition to many classic cars and he emphasized how thrilled he was when this one arrived at his home off the Enclosed trailer 6 years ago.  I can understand why as I had the same feeling when it arrived to us here in the Atlanta, GA area. In fact I drove it home the day it arrived and drove it most of the afternoon getting thumbs up everywhere I went.   Absolutely beautiful paint and body and nicely restored everywhere else as well.  This is a fantastic ’56 Bel Air for the person who wants one that will win its share of trophies at the local shows and cruise ins but is also set up to drive and enjoy with some great modern comfort features.  The previous owner was down-sizing from his hime with a large garage and lots of property to a townhouse with a 2 car garage.  He decided it was time to pass this sweet ’56 to the next lucky owner…Maybe you?? I will do my best to provide enough large images, a couple of videos so you can hear it running, and an honest description to help you decide if this Bel Air should be in your garage before the next car guy or gal scoops it up. 
 
Restored about 10 years ago the paint and body on this Bel Air still look fantastic. Body panels are extremely straight and overall body panel fit is also excellent. Doors open and shut with ease.  The period correct color combination is what I believe to be Tropical Turquoise and India Ivory. Paint quality is excellent. Chrome trim, bumpers, emblems etc all look fantastic.  This Bel Air was built to be driven and has been to the tune of about 10,750 miles since the restoration.  Although nothing stood out to me, lets assume there are a couple of really tiny rock chips somewhere along the body.  I also noticed a very small blem under the paint between the trunk and the rear window. Overall the glass looks excellent however I did notice a minor chip at the top of both the drivers and passengers front windows. These windows are probably original.  One cool feature of these ’56’s is the hideaway gas cap located inside the drivers side rear taillight. Great stance thanks to the drop spindles up front and lowering blocks in the rear as well as the 17″ Torque Thrust wheels.  Overall the body and paint look fantastic and will definitely turn heads and win trophies at the local shows.  Here is a walk around photo tour:

Complimenting the 2-tone Turquoise and Ivory exterior is an equally stunning 2-tone green interior accented in silver. The interior really combines some great originality with some awesome modern updates and comfort features. The original front and rear seats were recovered in original style covers and look amazing. as The door panels and carpeting also appears to have been replaced with original style. The headliner looks like it could be original and has some discoloration but overall looks great for the age.  Power windows function nicely although the passenger side front window only goes up with the switch on the passenger door but we will try to correct that before the car leaves us. Beautiful set of Dakota Digital gauges were installed when the car was restored and the mileage reads just under 10,750 miles which is the actual mileage since restoration.  A digital clock was installed on the passenger side of the dash as well. All of the gauges and lights appear to be functioning accurately.   For your comfort inside the cabin, Vintage air conditioning and heat were neatly installed and work great. Tilt Steering column with a nice billet Specialties steering wheel were installed as well.  Nice sounding stereo was installed without cutting the dash and speakers were added in the front kick panels and rear deck. As you will see in the pictures below the interior looks just as sweet as the exterior and is show ready!!

This ’56 Bel Air is a sweet cruiser thanks to the completely rebuilt, period correct 283 V8 that has just under 10,750 miles on it since the restoration. The motor is very stock and was built to cruise and not race stop light to stop light. She still has plenty of power but at the same time is ready for todays highway speeds and can be driven any distance without worry.  Handling is a breeze thanks to the power steering. Stopping is just as easy thanks to the upgraded Power Front disc brakes. The turbo 350 Automatic transmission was also rebuilt at the time of restoration and shifts out nicely.  Suspension was redone and the car was lowered with drop spindles and lowering springs up front and lowering blocks in the rear. Heavy duty front and rear sway bars also help this baby handle the road with ease.  This Bel Air glides along the road and looks great doing it.  A great looking set of 17″ American Racing Torque Thrust wheels help to set this Hot rod off.  Tires have tons of tread life left. Under the hood you will see it has been nicely detailed and a expensive and  beautiful polished serpentine belt system was added. Fuel is supplied with a brand new Polished Edelbrock 600cfm 4bbl Carburetor. This Bel Air runs nice and cool thanks to the upgraded Aluminum radiator and dual electric fans. Ceramic coated headers breather out throughout the dual exhaust for a nice soft rumble.  Floorpans and undercarriage are rock solid and rust free.  Inside of the trunk is also in fantastic condition.  Make sure you listen to the video that follows to hear it start up and running.
