Description

Lot #675 - This gorgeous 1956 Chevy Bel Air 2 door hardtop Resto-mod is done beautifully in two tone blue with a terrific lowered stance and all the modern conveniences. This car has all of the appropriate suspension upgrades including CPP 4-wheel disc brakes, CPP tubular control arms, 4-link suspension with coilovers and 12-bolt differential and front and rear sway bars. The powertrain is decked out as well starting with a Chevy 350 and 700R4 transmission, as well as Edelbrock performer aluminum heads, intake and 4-barrel carburetor. Additionally to keep it cool there is a stainless steel radiator, switch and thermostat-operated electric fan and a transmission cooler. The engine compartment is completed with HPC coated hugger headers, MSD ignition coil, Crane Cams Fireball electronic ignition, CPP power steering, Billet Specialties pulleys, breather and more. The interior is done in similar high quality with dual Tahoe bucket seats done in a very classy but modern white leather rolled pleat. The driver's seat is power, with a Flaming River chrome tilt steering wheel to add to the driving comfort. The raised flames in the door panels and trunk make a nice addition to the interior which also includes a Lokar shifter, TPI Tech gauges, Electric Life power windows, Vintage Air, Billet Specialties steering wheel and gorgeous deep blue plush carpeting. Not to be outdone by the rest of the car the exterior is finished in the classic two tone of tri-fives with a modern flair. A dark blue front and light blue rear and roof really sets the car off. Additionally the Billet Specialties Legend Series wheels and Kumho tires finish it all off with class. The final touches include beautiful stainless trim, Bumper Boyz smoothie bumpers and LED tail and parking lights. Finally the Rockford Fosgate speakers powered by a trunk mounted Kenwood power amplifier and completed with a power antenna complete the package for tunes to cruise with.
