Classic Car Overview

Gateway Classic Cars Houston showroom is excited to offer this awesome 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air. This Bel Air hardtop is one of the most well-engineered of the Tri-Five family that weve had the pleasure of listing. Of course the first thing one notices is the beautiful Cadillac White Diamond over Sunburst Orange Metallic paint scheme the super shiny brightwork and the uniform shut lines on the doors hood and trunk. However the fun part is whats underneath the pretty part! The foundation begins with a powder coated Newman Car Creations custom 56 Chevy 2 door hardtop frame and suspension package with a complete Corvette front and rear suspension (85-87 components); including aluminum control arms new Bilstein shocks new bump stop rubbers steel brake lines and stainless steel brake hoses; Baer Racing multi-piston front calipers and Corvette rear calipers 13 coated slotted and drilled rotors up front and standard sized rear rotors (also coated/slotted/drilled); Hydratech Hydro Boost brake package Emergency/parking brake interface Corvette LS engine mounts Steel Fabricated Engine Mount Brackets custom Newman Car Creations Differential with 3.54:1 gears and limited slip (Posi). The gear ratio provides great highway cruising but also allows for good launches and grin-inducing wheel-spinning downshifts at highway speeds. Since youll want to drive this Bel Air everywhere a custom extra-large stainless steel fuel tank (with its submerged high-volume LS fuel pump) has plenty of capacity for either long trips or those lots of hammer down time trips around town. All that works together to set the stage for the potent drivetrain to really make the fun start. Under the hood lurks a GM Performance Parts 6.2L LS3 engine (which is painted to match the lower body and engine bay) and the built 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission backing the potent V8. A custom set of coated headers feed into the dual exhaust system which sounds awesome when youre lead-footing it but is properly subdued during regular driving. A mammoth BeCool aluminum radiator with twin electric cooling fans keeps engine temps under control. Its hard not to notice the custom mandrel bent hardlines for the HVAC and if you look closely youll also see that most of the other hoses (transmission/power steering; are also braided steel with AN fittings: no silly hose sleeves with hose clamps hiding under the dress-up kit used here! As you can no doubt tell this is a very well thought out and engineered build. However a great chassis/suspension/power train is best enjoyed from inside the cabin and this 56 Bel Air continues its design excellence inside. A complete custom leather interior provides both handsome looks and that wonderful aroma that good hides do; so youll find both visual and olfactory delights in here! A vintage-style Bluetooth head unit (with satellite radio capability) supplies the audio to the custom speakers hiding behind the front kick panels and rear deck and provides concert quality sound regardless of your music tastes. The driver will appreciate the vintage style gauges the custom tilt steering column the custom center console with leather shift boot and cupholders and also having the master control panel for all 4 power windows at hand; but everyone in the cabin will appreciate the tunes from the sound system and the cold air conditioning coming from the nicely integrated custom vent system. Getting the picture yet? This 56 Bel Air is a best of both worlds approach - vintage style with modern performance and comforts. The Nitto performance radials on the polished American Racing mags combined with the Corvette suspension will have you scaring your friends Camaros Mustangs and Challengers out on the twisty back roads when you want to push it (or scaring your passengers if you prefer). Dont miss out on getting this one-of-a-kind topflight Tri-Five!
