Classic Car Overview

This 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible is a gorgeous Tri-Five Chevy convertible with outstanding options! Its hard to watch a movie or TV show that takes place in the 1950s or 60s without seeing a Tri-Five Chevy either cruising down the road or even parked on the side of the street. In 1955, Chevrolet completely redesigned its passenger car lineup, and the resulting designs from 1955, 1956, and 1957 would become some of the most iconic Chevrolets ever produced. This short three year span of cars has since then been known as the Tri-Five era for Chevrolet. In November of 1955, Chevrolet debuted its 1956 passenger cars to its dealers following up on the successful 1955 Chevys with another breathtaking design for 1956. Up front, the new 56 Chevrolets sported a completely redesigned full-width chrome grille that sat below a new-look hood that was flatter, longer, and sported an accentuated V treatment. This hood design was so beautiful that it would be carried forward into the following years design. Looking down the sides of the 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air ran new chrome side trim featuring a painted insert that runs nearly the full length of the car at the beltline and sweeping down towards the rear. Perhaps the most famous exterior update on the new 1956 Chevrolet was the placement of the hidden gas filler cap which, in true 50s fashion, is tucked behind the drivers side tail light. In Chevrolet passenger car hierarchy, the Bel Air was considered the highest, most luxurious trim level sitting above the entry-level 150 and intermediate 210 models. The Bel Airs interior, as the most luxurious Chevrolet in 1956, was considered the plushest, most elevated and best-optioned across the GM marques passenger car line, and some would say were comparable to most luxury cars of the day. The Bel Air also came equipped with fantastic options as standard equipment including a clock and lockable gloveboxes, both of which were considered big of luxuries back in 1956. This particular 1956 Chevrolet comes to us from a southern-based collector who owned and cared for the car for the past 15 years. Powering this 56 Chevy Bel Air is a 265 Cubic Inch V8 engine fed by a single 4 barrel carburetor that together were said to have created 205 horsepower when new. The 265 V8 is backed by a Powerglide Automatic transmission ensuring that just about anybody take this baby for spin around the block. Exhaust exits the 265 powerpack via a dual exhaust setup that generates a nice throaty sound going down the road. This 1956 Bel Air Convertible is absolutely loaded with options! The white vinyl power convertible top is in fantastic condition and it goes up and down with ease, all with a push or pull of a knob mounted under the dash. With power steering, squeezing in or out of a tight parking space, whether youre at the local car show or drive-in, is a total breeze and the overall driving experience is much improved as well. Riding on a set of wide whitewall bias-ply tires with wire basket wheelcovers, this 56 Chevy has some serious curb appeal. This 1956 Chevrolet Bel-Air also comes equipped with a rear-mounted Continental Kit, further adding to the gorgeous look of this iconic 50s cruiser. The body of this Tri-Five Chevy has been refinished correctly in a gorgeous two-tone color scheme consisting of Pinecrest Green and India Ivory that completes the exterior appearance of this wonderful automobile. The interior of this 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible is absolutely stunning! The front and rear bench seats have been reupholstered in beautiful two-tone green vinyl, accented with silver buttons. The green carpeting, matching door panels, green painted steering wheel and painted dash are all in terrific shape and retain a nice stock appearance. Instrumentation includes a 110 MPH speedometer, temperature gauge, and fuel gauge, along with indicator lights for generator operation and oil pressure. The interior of this 56 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible is also loaded with many desirable options! Youll be able to day cool even on the hottest summer days since this 56 Chevy comes outfitted with air conditioning. A drivers side combination spotlight/mirror is another timely addition to this 50s classic. The dash also comes outfitted with an AM radio with dash-integrated speaker, clock, and locking glovebox, completing the interior of this car. Whether youre buying your first classic car or youre an established collector looking for a Tri-Five to take on a Saturday cruise, this 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible would make an excellent choice.
