This 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Hard Top is unlike any other Tri-Five you\'ve likely seen before. It\'s a full restomod that take the iconic silhouette we all love and gives it a sleeker look, a leather-liner A/C interior, overdrive transmission, and plenty of V8 power.
This coupe looks smoother than the other \'56 Bel Airs out there. Expertly deleting the side trim and door handles give you a great view of the profile. And investing heavily in the body means you really get to see some artful creases that get overshadowed on many other cars. And speaking of shadows, the black paint is a modern clearcoat application that is ideal for a car like this. It upgrades the attitude, and at the same time, the good shine lets the sunshine highlight all the details in the sheetmetal that this custom loves to show off. And not only does this showcase the clean lines Chevy made, but also custom elements, like the frenched taillights. Even on the cleanest custom Bel Air, you still need proper brightwork, and so you get a mirror-like presentation on the wraparound chrome bumpers, unique 1956-style grille, and all that trim that shows off the pillarless hardtop profile. Plus, the modern polished alloys staggered at 17/18 inches front/rear tell you that this custom was made for driving, too.
Those smooth sides mean you get to pop the remote door openers to reveal the full custom interior. It\'s hard to find a better premium combination of colors than a deep black exterior and a supple tan leather interior. And thanks to the pillarless hardtop, you get to show off this full color combo with ease. This has all the best comforts with a cup holder center console, AM/FM/CD stereo, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. And while everyone will want to go for a ride, this one is really focused on the drive. Front bucket seats, a Lokar floor shifter, Dakota Digital VXR gauges, and a large dash-mounted tach are all get your ready for something nice in the engine bay.
Grab your sunglasses before opening the hood, because they invested a ton in polished components. So you know you\'ll show this off everywhere you park. Beyond the shine is the substance of a 400 cubic-inch V8 - the largest small block Chevy offered in factory cars. It\'s enhanced with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer EPS intake, and headers feeding a rather straight set of pipes on the dual exhaust. More than just powerful, this has the right supporting components, like an electronic ignition and large radiator with electric fan. A true driver\'s classic also means upgrades like power brakes with front discs, modern sport tires, and a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive.
Complete with $6,000 in build receipts, this is a unique take on a true classic. So when a car that\'s iconic, distinction, and easy to enjoy, you know you need this restomod. Call today!!!
