This amazing 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air 2-door sedan is one of those cars that already has all the right ingredients. Big horsepower stroker motor? Yep. Overdrive transmission? Of course. Gorgeous interior with all the upgrades? What did you expect? And its so nice that youll want to drive it everywhere you go. Bright pastels like the Twilight Turquoise and India Ivory combination on this car never look wrong, but on this cool coupe, its downright spectacular, especially rendered in modern two-stage urethane. The two-tone combination emphasizes the chrome and trim, all of which remain intact on this mild custom, and all of it has been restored to a high standard. All the body panels are straight, and the reflections in our photo studio are proof enough that someone invested the time and effort to make this one look right. All the things that make these cars great also make them a challenge to restore; if your panels dont align correctly, youre going to see it in mismatched trim. It all works together making a car that will get attract attention at first glance, but really needs extended study to see just how nicely done it really is. They didnt shave, delete, or modify any of the exterior pieces, but you know instantly that this car is special, which is a testament to the workmanship. There are a few signs of use and age, but rolling into a show driving this car is going to cause quite a stir. The completely restored interior is a big step up from 1956, and offers all the comforts and conveniences of a modern luxury car with all the style of 1956. Seriously, is there anyone who thinks they can do a better job than the GM stylists? The factory bench seat is wrapped in beautiful turquoise and white upholstery that comes right out of the 1956 factory brochure; well, OK, not exactly, but it has the right look and the right materials. Blue carpets add some contrast and the dash retains a factory look, complete with modern gauges from Dakota Digital that slot right into the original gauge pod. The floor-mounted shifter falls easily to hand and youll be delighted to note that its linked to a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission, making this Bel Air an effortless high-speed cruiser. A polished tilt column holds a neat small-diameter wheel that looks like the original and a powerful entertainment system fills the car with sound thanks to a set of trunk-mounted subwoofers. And speaking of the trunk, its simply finished with a tailored carpet to give it a clean, uncluttered look. You cant make a car look this good and not have it perform, so a built 383 cubic inch small block Chevy V8 went under the hood. Famous for making great torque, the engine is happy trundling through traffic or hammering down the interstate. The list of hardware is impressive, including an upgraded camshaft, stroker crank, ported double-hump heads, and a 4-barrel carburetor on an aluminum intake. It never gets fussy, idles well, and delivers instant power with a just quick prod of the throttle. Its also extremely well detailed, with neat wiring and plumbing, a lot of chrome and billet aluminum, plus Chevy Orange paint on the block. Long-tube headers feed a Flowmaster exhaust and a 10-bolt out back plants the power thanks to a 3.55-geared limited slip inside. 4-wheel disc brakes give it the stopping power of a modern car and it rides on Budnik wheels wearing 235/40/18 front and 265/35/18 rear performance radials. This is a car that you can drive anywhere with confidence, and it will still draw a crowd anywhere it goes. Call today!
As the middle child of the Tri-Five Chevys, we get fewer 1956 Bel Airs than 55s and 57s. Why this is, I cant say, but it does mean that when an ultra-nice 56 Bel Air convertible like this shows up everyone takes notice. With a frame-off restoration, awesome colors, and that famous small block V8, it looks and drives like Americas favorite collector car. This car has had a cost-no-object frame-off restoration, which will give you a very good idea of how nice it truly is. It wears new paint, of course, and it accurately duplicates the original Crocus Yellow over Onyx Black paint scheme it wore on the showroom floor in 1956. The sheetmetal is straight enough to wear black paint easily, with fit and finish that are worth of this cars high-profile look and A-rated collectable status. The doors open and close the way only a solid, original cars door can, and since this car has practically been restored down to the molecular level theres a spectacular shine to the finish. All the trim is fully restored, as are the bumpers, which probably cost as much as a college education to restore. Accessory fender skirts and a continental kit make it look long and low, and if youre going to have a high-profile Chevy convertible, you may as well get one loaded with goodies. The two-tone interior was restored to factory specs while they had it apart for paint, and the results are impressive. The funky materials they used back then were a joyous tribute to the optimistic 50s and theyre accurately replicated inside this convertible, making it a great place to spend some time. Correct door panels echo the exterior styling with the swooping armrest inserts and the bright trim band that runs across the dash glitters like jewelry against the black instrument panel. Out of respect for the original design, the factory AM radio still lives in the dash and its fully operational. The gauges were likewise restored and show bright printing on a black background, and there are exactly zero deviations from stock. Theres also a brand new black convertible top with new top cylinders and pump, and our photo shoot was probably the first time it had ever been down because it has zero wrinkles. Finally, the trunk is finished as original, with a reproduction rubber mat and correct jack assembly (the spare tire lives in the continental kit, as it should). To make this Bel Air the ultimate 50s cruiser, theres a correct 265 cubic inch V8 under the hood, fully rebuilt and detailed for show. Thanks to the Power Pack option, it has a 4-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust for a bit more horsepower, and with power steering and power brakes, its as easy to drive as a modern car. Correct hardware, fasteners, and clamps make for a show-ready presentation and theyve even included all the original-style tags and decals. The 2-speed PowerGlide automatic transmission shifts properly and feeds the original rear end with highway-friendly gears inside. A brand new dual exhaust system with glasspack-style mufflers has the right rumble without being obnoxious, and you can see what a clean car this is just by glancing at the chassis photos. Four steel wheels with wire hubcaps and proper wide whites give it a classic look and an OEM feel. Beautifully finished, with all the original parts that were already in excellent shape expertly preserved, this is a high-end Bel Air thats ready to travel or show anywhere. Call today!
This 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air 4-door is a very appealing car that retains all of its 1950s soul. Yes, I know it has four doors, but look closely and youll find an extremely attractive cruiser with room for the whole family and a vintage look that will turn heads everywhere it goes. Any 1956 Chevy is a great-looking car, and this Bel Air 4-door sedan wears the same sparkling trim as its 2-door siblings and wears it well. With twice as many doors, there are twice as many gaps to fit, twice as many doors to align, and two extra panels to sand and straighten, but the guys tasked with this job did it well. This car looks quite attractive in the flesh, with glittering turquoise and white paint that shows off the vintage sheetmetal to great advantage. Theres some use and age on the paint, but a professional buff might bring it up a notch. And the 4-door carries its own cool details, including the way the rear doors invisibly blend with the quarter panel, giving it the look of a sporty 2-door, as well as the decorative stainless trim at the base of the rear windows. This car also offers a lot of chrome and stainless trim that is probably original and a little faded, plus correct taillights that always look like some kind of trick aftermarket pieces. No matter how many doors it has, this is a good-looking car. A four-door like this really shines when its time to hit the road with some friends, with plenty of room for everyone. Turqouise vinyl upholstery helps to uphold the vintage look, and wide benches fore and aft are all-day comfortable. The carpets are new, the doors and kick panels have been reupholstered, and someone has added seat belts along the way. The gauges are original with the lens showing some age and they are joined by a trio of aftermarket gauges hanging under the dash. The original AM radio is still in the dash and it powers up, but that might be where wed start the upgrades in preparation for a road trip. Theres a big trunk, and while its unfinished, you can see that this car is not a rust bucket. The great thing about the small block Chevy is that it remains a usable engine in your vintage car, just the way it was built. This is a 265 cubic inch version topped by an Edlebrock 4-barrel carburetor and performance is still quite entertaining. It still looks quite original and theres a good chance thats original Chevy Orange paint still clinging to the block. Several upgrades make it far more usable and reliable, including a big aluminum radiator, an alternator, and a modern power brake system with dual master cylinder, new lines, and fresh wheel cylinders. Theres still a 2-speed PowerGlide automatic transmission behind it, and it shifts crisply while highway gears make it a comfortable cruiser under any circumstances. The undercarriage isnt detailed but its solid and original, and as I mentioned, those 20-inch IROC replica wheels give it a resto-mod look but this car could go back to stock quite easily if thats your thing. This 56 Chevy Bel Air is a very affordable way to own an icon and with a little elbow grease, it could be something truly remarkable. Call now!

We are pleased to present this 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air 4-door Sedan. This rare original 265ci V8 with two speed Powerglide automatic transmission was restored to original condition in 1998 and has been well taken care of since. The elegant two tone paint is in great shape although not original to the car but was the correct paint colors available for that model year. The chrome trim and bumpers are bright and shiny with very little flaws. This car comes with the fender skirts that you can choose to install at your option. The interior was also completely restored with the same color combination as the exterior plus a little flare to the piping, is in excellent condition and has the added seat belts for safety. The dash is also in great shape with all the gauges in working order except for the clock. The original radio still works and a cleverly hidden input for a modern device was installed as well as modern speakers. Not that you will want to listen to music as the new dual exhaust makes a pleasing note out of the small block. Included is the original owners manual and original brochure from Ben Frost & Son Chevrolet. This vehicle qualifies for an optional 90 day ASC drivetrain warranty. We can arrange shipping to your location. If you have any questions, please call or text Savannah Classic Cars at 912-235-2347.
We all love a desirable classic like a 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible. But when your exceptional paperwork can prove that its the original V8 under the hood, and the outstanding color combo is correct, then you know why they invested so much in restoring this true icon. This one just looks like it was built to lead the parade. After all, theres just something purely premium about a 50s classic finished in nothing but bright white and brighter chrome. The factory-correct India Ivory has been given quality respray during this cars restoration so that it knows how to radiate in the sunshine. Not only is the full car covered in white, but also with the white convertible top and wide whitewall tires, this has a terrifically coordinated snowy appearance. The reason why a Tri-Five Bel Air is the icon of the American road is all the brightwork. The form-fitting chrome bumpers, full-width grille, complete windshield trim, factory wheel covers, and jet age hood ornament have all been given the proper care to make sure this looks like rolling history. Plus, the full-length sweeping side trim was exclusive only to the 56 Bel Air. So its not only key to get this artful arrangement complete and correct, but when its done this nicely, it also highlights the straightness of the sheetmetal. With the flip of a switch, the white convertible top powers down smoothly to reveal an impressive interior. You retain more of that great white look to coordinate with the exterior, and now its also joined by black carpeting, a black dash, black trim, and charcoal cloth inserts on the seats. The result is as eye appealing as a tuxedo. Plus, its exceptionally practical (after all, dark inserts in the doors and seats means youre not constantly worried about the dust on other passengers clothes and shoes.) The whole setup looks authentic, right down to the button-top pattern on the seatbacks. Slipping behind the wheel feels like slipping back in time thanks to the Bel Airs stylized steering wheel, classic dual cowl dash w/crisply bright trim, and even the AM radio is still cranking out tunes. So you can tell they took the time to get it right on this special Bel Air. The engine bay looks highly authentic, and for a very good reason. Because there was no numbers-matching system back then, most people feel lucky to just say their 56 Chevy has a period-correct small block. But this one is different. It has the original dealer invoice stipulating that youre looking at the 265 cubic-inch V8 that this was born with 63 years ago. So with this kind of proven rarity, they have taken the time to make it look correct right down to details like the red block, factory breather, and even a generator. And the way it fires up readily tells you they invested in this one for more than just its looks. As you look further in the invoice, it proves it was born to be powerful with the Power Pack four-barrel carburetor on top. Plus, with the correct Powerglide automatic transmission and power steering, this special droptop is easy to show off everywhere. Not only does the sale come with the important dealer invoice, but also you get the original warranty card, owners manual, maintenance records, and service manuals. This is a cut-above Bel Air that has been treated with the respect something this distinctly rare deserves. Call now!

Over $300,000 invested into this one-off custom Bel-Air and is absolutely jaw-dropping from every angle. Winning many awards from the Good Guys Columbus Builders Choice award to the NSRA Louisville Top 25 Pro Pick, this 1956 is well deserving candidate for all the attention it receives. As you approach it from a distance, it looks like just a very well done 1956 Bel-Air. However, as you get closer the subtle modifications start to jump out at you. The grill was kicked out for a more stream-lined look, hood humps from a 57 Chevrolet were used to make the hood cowl, Porsche headlight lenses set back 1 , custom one-piece stainless roof moldings, removed vent windows from doors, and custom rear bumper notched for the twin exhaust are just a few of the cool and unique twists to this elegant Bel-Air. If you have the privilege of getting the chance to touch it, open the door using the slim Jaguar door handles and slide into the completely custom interior done by Paul Atkins using only the highest quality of materials. As you look out over the smoothed-out dash, you will be amazed at how clean and simple everything was kept in this build. Even the radio was hidden behind a door to keep any clutter out of sight. Despite the clean appearances, this car is fully functional and is a treat to drive! The 5.7L LS1 sitting under the hood comes to life with ease and a low rumble projects out the back. Slide it down into drive and the 4L60E automatic transmission does the work from there! The 350 horsepower is plenty to get this moving in a hurry and the Wilwood disc brakes bring it back to zero just as quick. As you arrive at your destination, get out, and look back at your ride; it is hard not to stop and stare. The ride height was dialed in to perfection and sits nicely on the Billet Specialty wheels. There were no corners cut on this build and is the ultimate choice for someone looking at a car that can be shown or enjoyed. No matter what the use may be, this car is a show stopper anywhere it goes! This vehicle is located in our Denver showroom.

Whenever anybody thinks of Chevrolet in the 1950 s, almost always, the one specific make that comes to mind is the Bel Air. It is a very iconic vehicle and it really distinguished Chevy from other car manufacturers of the time. This particular 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air is nothing short of what would typically come to mind. Fully restored, this Bel Air is nothing short of a great vehicle. It possesses a V8 4bbl Carburetor allows it to run cleanly with no issues at all. Also it is very easy to drive, being that it has an Automatic Transmission. The 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air s goal was to create a sweeter, more frisky ride than that of the 55 and also create a vehicle with safer passing. They surely did not falter with their step forward in creating this vehicle. Whenever originally debuted in 1956, the consumers were absolutely wild about it. There were very minor modifications within the inside of the vehicle with a slightly new dashboard, and a hidden gas cap within the rear fin. One of the factors that the people of the 50 s were crazy about was the full array of color options. This particular chevy has a Two Tone exterior including the two colors Nassau Blue and India Ivory. Both of which, are very unique and vibrant colors that were not seen on any other vehicles of the time. The interior is two tone as well, made up of the colors Charcol and White. The 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air is an iconic vehicle, there is no debate about that, and with only 37,581 miles and an reasonable price of $49,888 you can own a piece of the past. The 56 Bel Air s motto after all was The Hot One is Even Hotter , and they definitely were on fire regarding sales made in 1956.
