Multi-Year Restoration by Best of the Best Craftsmen
The current owner of this 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Hardtop Coupe's Husband acquired it back in 1997 and insisted on only the best throughout the restoration. This build started with a full Paul Newman chassis from notable Newman Car Creations, which are no longer produced since Paul has retired. All body and paint work was completed by Johnny Cisneros, including a full restoration of all polished chrome and trim work to better than new condition. The interior and outstanding upholstery was completed by the well-known hot rod upholster Sid 'the Stitch Man" Chavers, with features such as glove soft leather, a custom Alcantara headliner, plus custom padding on the dash and door panels.
The powertrain for this 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Hardtop was donated from a C4 Corvette with less than 40,000 miles on it and you’ll find new accessories, power management, braking, and suspension throughout. Every aspect of performance on the open road is outstanding, and this classic drives like a much more modern muscle car without losing its undeniable classic appeal. As we mentioned earlier, no expense was spared in this iconic build and this example may not have a rival anywhere on the open market.
Additionally, this 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Hardtop 2 Door Coupe has been maintained at the highest possible levels since the restoration effort and shows no discernible signs of imperfection. While we would never refer to any classic as “perfect”, that’s what comes to mind when you view this classic hardtop in person. The exterior body, paint and chrome are exceptional while the completed interior is among the nicest we’ve ever seen.
Easily the Most Outstanding Example We’ve Seen
Overall, this 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Hardtop Coupe is the nicest example we have ever seen in person and it would be a show winner on virtually any stage in the nation. With excellent build quality and countless manhours involved with this restoration, you may never see another example of this caliber on the open market again.

We strongly encourage any and all buyers who are unable to view the vehicle in-person to perform a Pre-Purchase Inspection (by an independent party of their choosing) prior to the purchase. Given the age of many of our vehicles, it is extremely difficult to adequately describe all aspects of each vehicles condition in the limited space available and we have learned that these Pre-Purchase Inspections are helpful to all parties involved.
The information presented for this vehicle is deemed reliable, but is not guaranteed as a basis of purchase. The Buyer should make a thorough, independent inspection and investigation of the vehicle prior to purchase.
