265 CID V8 - 4BBL - Automatic - A/C - P.Top - Roman Red Exterior - Texas History

This 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible is an exemplary example of a Tri-Five Chevy. 1955 was the first year of the second generation Bel Air and featured updated styling and the first year with a V8. The Bel Air was the top-of-the-line model for Chevrolet in 1955 and they were equipped with more chrome trim, plusher interiors, wraparound windshield, and the iconic gold "Chevrolet" script and gold "V" on the hood. The headlights were also updated on the Bel-Airs to the famous "hooded" look that was carried through the rest of the Tri-Five era cars. This particular example comes to us from a prominent Texas collector out of his very large collection of vintage cars and trucks. A 265 Cubic Inch V8 is paired with a single 4 barrel carburetor on this Bel Air Convertible and gives off a great sound through the dual exhaust out the rear of the vehicle. The 265 V8 is mated up to an Automatic Transmission that is a total joy to drive. The exterior of this stunning '55 Chevy has been refinished in beautiful Roman Red paint that really makes this Bel Air Convertible stand out. The exterior chrome and brightwork on this Chevy Bel Air are in excellent condition, appearing to have been recently restored. The beige canvas power convertible top is in fantastic condition and works great and it is operated with the simple flick of a switch. This Bel Air sits on 4 wide whitewall bias ply tires with steel rims and wire wheel covers, which give this '55 a stunning 50s look. The rear whitewalls sit beautifully behind fender skirts as well. The interior on this 1955 Bel Air is exceptional! The red and beige simulated leather bench seats look fantastic and are in like-new condition. The steering wheel and door panels look great and appear as they did when this Bel Air rolled off the Norwood, Ohio factory floor. The dash is in fantastic condition and it's in its stock configuration, equipped with a speedometer, temperature gauge, gas gauge, AM radio, electric clock, and controls for the Vintage Air A/C unit. Perhaps to most significant added-on option on this Bel Air is that it has air conditioning, so that you can stay cool even on the hottest summer days. If you're looking for the quintessential 50s cruiser, we've got a superb 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible right here at Ellingson Motorcars. Give us a call today!
