MotoeXotica Classic Cars has one of the best-known Chevrolets of the 20th century, a 1955 Bel-Air Two-door Sedan. Made in GM’s Janesville, Wisconsin assembly plant, this car has undergone a major revamp from its stock beginnings. Complete with a powerful 350 power plant, power steering, power upgraded disc brakes and upgraded independent front suspension!
Finished in a sharp red and black paint scheme, the paint and trim are in overall excellent shape, as are the clear and crack-free windows. This bowtie’s lights are clear and intact. It rolls on American Racing five-spoke wheels surrounded by 245/40R20 tires.
The body panels are all solid and straight, the engine bay is very tidy and the bumpers look great. Under the hood is Chevy’s venerable small block 350 CID V-8 engine with an Assault brand intake manifold and electric radiator fan and backed by a three-speed automatic transmission. Driver assist features include a Tuff Stuff power steering and power brakes.
Inside, the car sports a mostly redone interior. The black front and rear seats are in excellent shape, as is the black carpet and matching headliner. The instrument panel has been refitted with Dolphin gauges and looks great. A three-spoke aftermarket steering wheel and aftermarket floor pedals are fitted. The inner door panels, mirror glass and shifter are all in good order. There is no radio in this car and it does not have any windshield wipers and the heater is disconnected.
For 1955, Chevrolet's full-size model received all-new styling and power. It was called the "Hot One" in GM's advertising campaign. Chevrolet's styling was crisp, clean and incorporated a Ferrari-inspired grille. Bel Airs came with features found on cars in the lower models ranges plus interior carpet, chrome headliner bands on hardtops, chrome spears on front fenders, stainless steel window moldings and full wheel covers. The Bel Air name script in gold lettering later in the year further distinguished models.
Chevrolets gained a V-8 engine option and the option of a two-speed Powerglide automatic or a standard three-speed Synchromesh manual transmission with optional overdrive for 1955. The new 265 CID V-8 featured a modern, overhead valve, high-compression, short stroke design that was so good it remained in production in various displacements for many decades. "Idiot" lights replaced gauges for the generator and oil pressure.
Motor Trend magazine gave the Bel Air top marks for handling. Popular Mechanics reported acceleration for a V-8 Bel Air with Powerglide as being 0-60 mph in 12.9 seconds, plus a comfortable ride, and good visibility.
A new option for V-8-equipped 1955 models was air conditioning, with outlets on each side of the dashboard; a heavy-duty generator was included on cars equipped with this option.
Competition to this Chevrolet in 1955 included Dodge’s Coronet two-door and Ford’s Fairlane Club two-door.
This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 57 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
