This 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air 2 door coupe has been nicely rebuilt using some 60’s period hot-rodding tricks. The car was purchased by its current owner in the USA and comes with vehicle import approval. The paint and body on the car are in good condition but have been refinished some time ago in a traditional Indian Ivory over red colour scheme.
The car has all of the Bel Air chrome trim and badging around it with refinished big chrome bumpers front and rear. The glass in the car is all new as are the door rubbers. The car sits on a set of direct Chev pattern, SS Cragar wheels for a cool period look and hint of something other than stock underneath. Pop the hood and you can see this isn’t a plain Jane stocker. In the engine bay now resides the infamous 409ci Chevy “W motor” big block V8 with Dual Quad Carburettors sitting on top. An engine that was so cool in the 60’s, that The Beach Boys wrote a song about it! The engine bay is well presented with finned rocker covers and matching air cleaner cover bridging the two carbs. Paired to the 409 is a Richmond 4 speed manual transmission with a new Lakewood scatter shield and new clutch. Underneath there is a new set of drop spindles and the front end has been rebuilt with new ball joints and new tierod ends. Likewise, the exhaust is all new from the headers to the bumper and gives the car a tough sound.
This is a cool understated 60’s style hot rod built from a ’55 Chevy Bel Air, a W motor under the bonnet and manual shifter with three pedals. You can bet it will be an absolute blast to drive.
