From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.

Classic Car Overview

Tri-Five fans, dont despair, there are still some very nice, drivable Chevys out there looking for new homes. Case in point? This gorgeous 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air 2-door sedan, with an awesome two-tone paint job, a big block V8 under the hood, and a stunning interior that has all the modern conveniences. This one definitely wont last long. A lot of hobbyists think the 1955 Chevys are the best of the bunch, with the purest, least finicky design, and its pretty hard to dispute that claim looking at this 210. The paint job is not quite authentic but using modern paints to give it a brilliant shine and depth, it really works. The soft champagne metallic over cobalt blue combination is simply perfect for getting attention with this slick cruiser, and we have to admit that it looks very sophisticated. The finish was color sanded and buffed to an incredible shine that really shows well in the sun, and the two-tone look definitely works on the simple 210 body style, accentuating the cars very best features. It shows a few signs of age and use, but nothing significant and nothing distracts from the high-quality look. All the original trim was removed, polished, and reinstalled once the paint was dry, and preserves the timeless look of this 55. The bumpers have been rechromed, the grille is in very good condition, and the familiar Soft-Ray glass adds to the hot rod look without distracting you from the vintage vibe. The stunning tan bucket seat interior very nicely done and offers comfort and all the modern conveniences. Tan vinyl with dark blue piping covers both the front and back seats, and the door panels use the same stuff in a custom pattern that definitely shows an artists touch. They retained the original dash, but added digital instruments behind a smoked panel, although the gauges do need some sorting. Theres also a tilt steering column, a billet steering wheel, and a B&M shifter on the floor just ahead of the custom console. Theres a neatly installed AM/FM/cassette stereo in the center of the dash and it uses original-looking knobs to help camouflage the upgrade. An A/C system has been installed with vents under the dash (needs to be serviced), and the trunk has been finished to match. The engine is a thundering 454 cubic inch V8 with a few aftermarket speed parts and enough flash to make it worth opening the hood at the local cruise night. Its a tight fit in there, but it works rather well in the lightweight Bel Air. Its fed by an Edelbrock intake manifold and 4-barrel carburetor, and an MSD ignition system lights it up. Chrome valve covers match the tall air cleaner and accessories, and with a giant aluminum radiator up front it never gets fussy. Block-hugging headers dump into a custom dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers and chrome pipes right under the one-piece California bumper. A TH350 3-speed automatic is the right transmission for a car like this and it drives a GM 10-bolt rear end. Power 4-wheel disc brakes with Wilwood calipers improve safety and it rolls on a set of chrome Ridler wheels wearing staggered 225/45/17 front and 245/45/18 rear Toyo radials. To duplicate this car, youd be well past the asking price before you were done with the paint and chrome, never mind the engine and interior. Theres no denying the appeal of the 55 shape and when theyre priced like this one, they make for a very appealing package. Call us today before this Bel Air slips away.
