1955 Chevrolet Bel Air
Offered here is one of most iconic classic cars ever made: the Tri-Five Chevy. Tri-Five refers to the 1955, 1956, and 1957 Chevrolet 150, 210, and Bel Air models, excluding the Corvette and trucks. Of the Tri-Fives, the Bel Air was the highest optioned vehicle, and in 1955 was offered with a V8 for the first time, hence its marketing tagline: “The Hot One.”
GKM is excited to offer this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Sport Coupe for consideration. We love the lines on this car, especially the no-post open window look. The car was originally sold in Utah where the restoration was completely about 17 years ago. The car then went to Florida where our client purchased it 15 years ago and brought it to Michigan. It has always been garage-kept. The car is finished in stunning two tone Harvest Gold and India Ivory with beautiful brightwork. The interior is a contrasting green with a beautiful symmetric dashboard. The original steel wheels are painted in matching Harvest Gold with chrome hubcaps - the proper fit and finish for a Bel Air.
The car is powered by a period-correct 265ci V8 with a 3-on-the-tree manual, upgraded from the original 6-cylinder. It also has power steering, original spare, analog lock, aftermarket retro tape deck, dual exhaust, and original owners manual. This Bel Air fires on command, runs strong, and shifts smooth. It is a staple of the 50's and you won't be disappointed driving or riding in it. Thumbs up by other motorists, guaranteed. A great vehicle proudly owned by our clients for the past 15 years. Be sure to check out over 150 photos and walk-around video of the car starting/running on our main website: Garage Kept Motors. Call if interested or e-mail with any questions. Thank you for looking.
