Description

Lot #178 - This spotless 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air 2 door hardtop has been meticulously restored. The prize of three owners was originally bought by a Virginia high school graduate who so desired a '55 Bel Air that she spent all of her graduation money as a down payment and took out a loan for the balance. She married and had a family, but held onto her first love. Finally, in 1992 she sold her car to a man in Northeast Wisconsin who performed a complete restoration on the exterior and interior of this car. A few updates were added, such as modern brakes, the Powerglide transmission was changed to a 3-speed Turbo 350, shiny chrome and an updated radio with cassette player.
