Description

Lot #1329 - This is a nostalgic and quintessential 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible that was a National First Place winner as noted by the plaque on the front grille. This particular car has received a new convertible top, has been restored to 1955 standards, and has had the chassis refurbished. This Bel Air is from the dry state of Texas and is absolutely beautiful. Finished in rarely seen two-tone Seamist Green and Neptune Green, the body is very straight and sound. The paint has a beautiful luster to it, showing minimal imperfections. The two shades of green paint complement one another perfectly. The new white canvas power convertible top looks great. The rear vinyl window is in excellent condition. There is a small imperfection to the right rear corner of the convertible top. All of the chrome and stainless trim look excellent with a brilliant shine. Inside, the seats have been upholstered in two-tone green and match the exterior paint. Both the front and rear bench seats are in wonderful condition, showing no major signs of wear or tear. The matching door panels and carpet all look fantastic. An original, paint matched dashboard show no signs of cracking or fading while housed in an original set of gauges that look excellent. An AM radio and clock are also in the dash, both look great. A very clean and tidy engine bay can be found under the hood. The Bel Air is powered by a 265cid V8 with automatic transmission with power steering. The Bel Air has an excellent stance and looks great upon its 15" chrome, real Tru-Spoke wire wheels wrapped snug in wide white wall tires.
