Classic Car Overview

When you imagine period-correct motoring, this is what the 1950s look like. This 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air hardtop has been given all the suitable investments to have a tremendous two-tone appearance, original details, period-correct V8, and much more. And when its all completed to such a high level, an icon like this never disappoints. You can tell there has been a solid investment in quality with this coupe, and it starts with the paint. The two-tone Nassau Blue and India Ivory is an excellent year-correct color theme. We like how it balances a gloss to engage your nostalgia, but this one never gets so fancy that youll never take it out of the garage to enjoy it. Plus, how the Bel Air line has that harpoon of color running the entire profile is an exclusive touch for this year that no factory would ever dare try again. And speaking of exclusive to 56, the grille is a great piece. Larger than the 55 and sleeker than the 57, you can easily recognize this model from far away. Plus, with the full trim, bumpers, factory wheel covers, and all the emblems complete, this is a total package thats worth its weight in shining brightwork. While a pillarless hardtop coupe like this has irresistible and iconic lines, dont forget to appreciate the details. Its in everything from the freshness of the weather stripping to the way the fender skirts add to the cars impressive flowing lines. Theres a sea of blue inside, and the crisp white headliner gives it the same two-tone feel as the outside. The interior is just as clean and impressive as the exterior. The idea of this one is a pure vintage cruiser. So you have the seats with a fantastic tuck-and-roll kind of flair that people will love, and the door panels are even done to match. And while they kept the classic AM radio there for display, your real driving music comes from an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo hidden in the glovebox. This has all the best pieces with the dual cowl dash, working dome lights, and a color-matched Bel Air steering wheel. Its such a detailed car that the clean trunk has a terrific-looking whitewall spare, the correct jack, and the instructions are affixed inside. Part of what makes these cars a legend is that the Tri-Fives were the ones to introduce the Chevy small block V8. So youll be happy to lift the hood and see a 265 cubic-inch V8 boldly radiating from within the engine bay. They made sure this was ready to show off with the clean black fender walls, a color-matched firewall, Chevrolet-script valve covers, and a big air grabber on top. It looks like quite a correct setup, and the motor even decodes to a four-barrel carb unit from this Tri-Five era. This coupe was built to drive, so it starts, idles, and runs with an easy well-respected nature. The driving experience gives you the feel of a good vintage machine, right down to the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission. But everything from the glass packs-style dual exhaust to the modern tread on the whitewalls is part of the subtle upgrades to ensure this is a cruiser for modern times, too. This is an iconic Chevy done to a detail-oriented standard. So you just know it belongs shining under your garage lights. Call now!
