1955 Chevrolet Bel Air
Car for sale by Black Dog Performance Cars in Lincolnshire, Illinois 60669
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.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
For sale at Blackdog Performance Cars is a magnificent 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible with an insatiable LS7 V8 engine. The gloss black paint shines beautifully to a mirror like finish, and is accented by all the gorgeous Bel Air brightwork. The black and white leather interior matches the exterior perfectly. It is a simple, almost stock appearing interior that makes you appreciate the styling of the Bel Air back in 1955.
Under the hood you will find a 427 CID LS7 V8 engine with a plethora of custom parts. The top of the engine features an intake cover that mimics the 55’ front fender and has 427 emblems on each side. The faux valve covers hide the modern coil packs, and carry BDSS (Blackdog Speed Shop) emblems on top. A BECool radiator and electric fan are in place to keep the LS7 cool no matter the weather. Custom, one off headers, were built to insure proper fitment and performance, and also provide a beautiful sound. A Tremec 6-speed manual transmission transfers the power to the Heidt’s independent rear end with ease. This all sits on a Heidt’s chassis that features a Pro G front end, coil overs on all four corners, an inboard rear brake setup, and Wilwood 4 piston calipers all around. Billet Specialties 18-inch wheels create a truly awesome stance and help modernize this Tri-Five Bel Air.
