Description

Lot #1392 - This one-of-a-kind 1956 Bel Air was featured on Season one, Episode 106 of the popular TV show "Overhaulin" with Chip Foose. Arguably one of the most significant Overhaulin projects ever completed during the five year TV run. This classic Chevy roadster was designed and overhauled by Chip Foose in collaboration with 33 top builders at famed automotive academy WyoTech. These pros turned this once 4 door sedan into a 2 door Speedster. The team leaders of this build are a "who's who" list including Troy Trepanier of Rad Rides by Troy, Levi Green who is an ace fabricator and Bryan Fuller of Fuller Hot Rods. In the published book, The Cars of Overhaulin on page 7, this is the first car cited by Chip himself as his favorite and it is later referred to in the book as the 'A-Team's finest hour'. The over-the-top collaboration of the mentioned famed builders and the aggressive transformation to a two-door speedster is what makes the final result so special. It has since been back to Chip Foose in Huntington Beach, CA where it underwent a two more months of further customization and upgrades by Chip himself. Unlike other "Overhaulin" builds, Chip had even more time to get this classic car into the exact shape and look he wanted and as you can see, the results were phenomenal. This car is an absolute show-stopper and this is a very rare opportunity to own a vehicle that cannot be duplicated ever again.
