1955 Chevrolet Bel-Air Convertible – Ellingson Motorcars
The headlights were also updated on the Bel-Airs to the famous “hooded” look that was carried through the rest of the Tri-Five era cars. This particular example comes to us from a prominent Texas collector out of his very large collection of vintage cars and trucks. A 265 Cubic Inch V8 is paired with a single 4 barrel carburetor on this Bel Air Convertible and gives off a great sound through the dual exhaust out the rear of the vehicle.
The steering wheel and door panels look great and appear as they did when this Bel Air rolled off the Norwood, Ohio factory floor. The dash is in fantastic condition and it’s in its stock configuration, equipped with a speedometer, temperature gauge, gas gauge, AM radio, electric clock, and controls for the Vintage Air A/C unit. Perhaps to most significant added-on option on this Bel Air is that it has air conditioning, so that you can stay cool even on the hottest summer days.
The 265 V8 is mated up to an Automatic Transmission that is a total joy to drive. The exterior of this stunning ’55 Chevy has been refinished in beautiful Roman Red paint that really makes this Bel Air Convertible stand out. The exterior chrome and brightwork on this Chevy Bel Air are in excellent condition, appearing to have been recently restored.
