1955 Chevrolet Bel Air 502ci crate 4-barrel

6 hits ID #14530


Moving inside starting with the door panels, and let's just say the restoration hits just keep on coming!! Using tan stitched vinyl which covers the lower third of the doors, and black vinyl for the sills, these two combine to make up the door panel. A custom fabricated arm rest is also within this tan panel. Slipping on to the new tan vinyl covered buckets which are of more contemporary design have high backs and headrests as well as power adjustments we are not in 1955 anymore! A new center console in tan vinyl covers the hump, houses the aftermarket Pioneer sound system which puts out AM/FM/CD sounds, and just above some white faced inset gauges for oil pressure, volts, and water temp. This center panel rises to the dash which has retained its original shape but has been modified to have a stainless horizontal ribbed central bar cradling the fan shaped upper dash and speedometer. This stainless bar also sports a bowtie in the center. On its black painted metal top is a tachometer. Fronting the dash is a Grant rally steering wheel. The passenger side has the other fan, (only done in 1955s), with Bel Air in grandma's handwriting and a round clock below. In back a newly covered, in the same pattern as buckets, bench is overstuffed and looking good and comfy for the rear passengers and offering up arm rests on either side. Above is a nice dark gray headliner in smooth vinyl, which remains nice and tight. Carpeting is very clean and is a deep black. The trunk is now covered in black carpeting, and we can see the stainless steel fuel cell in the center, and a stainless diamond plate covered battery box on the passenger's side.
Within the blinding red engine bay is shoehorned in a 502ci crate engine courtesy Chevrolet. It has a 4-barrel carburetor on top and a TH400 3-speed automatic, which throws power rearward to a Dana 60 rear axle. It is just a gleaming mass of automotive engineering and can definitely pump out some serious power!
