1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Coupe California “Born & Raised” Restored ’55 Chevy Bel Air – Black Plate Car with Interesting California History Very Tastefully Done with Totally Stock Appearance & Significant Performance, Safety, and Comfort Improvements Finished in Factory Original Gypsy Red & Shoreline Beige (GM Code 615) & Color Coordinated Stock Appearance Interior (GM Code 521) _____________________________________________________________ NOTE: Our listings sometimes get rather lengthy. However, we continually hear from out of state / out of country buyers (many of our clients) that they prefer the level of detail that we provide.
The new owners dismantled the entire car, removing the hood, doors, bumpers and trunk lid. The Chevy then underwent a complete, trim removed respray with virtually all new soft and hard trim being replaced or refurbished. The original chassis and underside was in excellent condition, free from any indications of rust through or rot and would eventually receive significantly improved mechanical and drive-line components.
Dual Flowmasters result in a pleasing but not obnoxious exhaust note. Mechanical upgrades were completed to the engine in addition to dress-up items in the engine compartment and replaced inner fenders. Drum brakes were updated in the rear and all brakes lines were replaced.
The combination of a totally restored exterior and interior along with a great choice of upgrades and mechanical components sets this ’55 apart from many poorly “home builts,” under performing stock Chevy’s, or overly modified Resto-Mods. When the car was restored it received a complete re-spray in the proper factory produced color scheme that, in our opinion, is one of the best colors on a Tri-Five Chevy. The car shows very well and has held up very well since the restoration was completed.
