1955 Chevrolet Bel Air
Following in the tradition of previous Ford factory built Mustang race cars like the 1968 Cobra Jet, the Boss 429 and the FR500S Mustang Challenge car, Ford Racing and AAI started work on a production run of 50 Cobra Jet Mustangs in January 2010. Ford Racing built 50 Cobra Jet Mustangs at Ford vendor facilities.
One thing that the crew at Volo Auto Museum understands is that context is everything. They have gone the extra mile to display each movie car with memorabilia and signage that brings the scene to life. The museum features actual movie props such as Tom Cruise's racing seat from Days Of Thunder.
Classic Car Overview
This 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air has undergone a transformation that has taken it from great classic car to fully customized showcar that can be enjoyed every day. This incredible custom coupe has been lovingly cared for by the same family since the late 1960s’ and was recently restored to its’ current show-car condition accumulating build receipts of over $117K! Every inch of the laser-straight black coupe has been improved with the end results being a modern high-performance car that can outperform most anything on the road. From the flawless paint, to the custom complete one-off leather interior, every facet of this vehicle has been refurbished or customized to bring out the best of a ’55 Chevy. This Bel Air was built using some of the finest materials and performance components available. The heart of this machine is the revered Chevrolet LS-Series Gen-IV aluminum small block V8 engine producing 525 horsepower and 486 foot-pounds of torque. This simple yet effective combination has an edge to it. Some features of this modern fuel-injected crate engine are a hydraulic roller camshaft, high-rate valve springs, hypereutectic aluminum pistons, as well as L92-style port aluminum cylinder heads - all designed to optimize performance. You'll notice it in the idle quality and you'll feel it when the revs quickly climb – it is not for the timid! Coated long-tube headers and custom fabricated exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers provide a deep, sweet sound through the polished exhaust tips. All this power is put to the pavement compliments of the Tremec six-speed manual transmission, bullet-proof rear axle, fully modernized suspension system, top-of-the-line Billet Specialties wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport Tires and high-performance Wilwood braking system. The caliber and precision of all work performed on this unique show car is of a very high quality. The entire vehicle is both highly detailed as well as being fully functional and well finished. An extensive equipment list below details the incredible features of this professionally built 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air. From the custom leather interior, to the modernized gauges, to the painted chassis, and all the way to the hand-fitted trunk close-out; front to back and top to bottom, this is one stunning ride! The effort and expense speak for themselves in the quality and craftsmanship that is evident in this great build!
