Lot #1358 - This 1955 Bel Air convertible is the recipient of a cost no object, total frame-off custom build. Under the hood is a Lingenfelter LS6 Corvette engine good for nearly 500hp and delivering the type of power modern enthusiast drivers demand. The rest of the car reads like a Hot Rodder's dream list, Art Morrison chassis, custom suspension with tubular control arms, coilover shocks at all four corners and rack & pinion steering, drilled/slotted Wilwood disc brakes all the way around, Boyd Coddington wheels, custom aluminum high capacity radiator with dual electric fans, all polished and billet trim in the engine bay and too much more to list. Inside, the interior is done in custom upholstery that is color matched to the exterior of the car and features a custom integrated Alpine audio system, Vintage Air, tilt column, custom smaller diameter version of the original steering wheel, power operated softtop and Classic Instruments gauges. From the show quality workmanship and immaculate presentation to highest quality components, incredible performance and real world drivability, this Bel Air convertible ranks among the very finest Pro-Touring examples of the breed.
