DESCRIPTIONYou will find yourself falling in love with this one! This is a beautiful frame-off restoration of a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air 2 door hardtop. It is powered by a LS2 V-8 Corvette engine and 4 speed automatic computer controlled transmission. All of the original Corvette wiring harness and computer components have been transferred also. Under the hood has been meticulously detailed and includes a new chrome battery box, chrome brake booster, a polished aluminum radiator with a polished overflow reservoir, and polished stainless steel core support and condenser. A new direct fit Southern Air heat, cool and defrost system has just been installed with dual electric fans and an adjustable thermostat. The custom leather interior is absolutely fascinating. The front power bucket seats are from a Trans Am and the rear seat was custom made to match. The floor console is also custom built to house the drink holders, new floor shifter, and Legacy stereo with DVD, MP4, VCD, MP3, WMA, CD, TV, RADIO, CDC, and JPEG capabilities. There are 2-6" round Clarion speakers in the front kick panels, and 2-6"x9" Clarion speakers in the rear deck. The white headliner is new and the chrome strips look great. The dash has been upgraded with all new digital gauges and Lecarra steering wheel. The metal part of the dash and doors has been freshly finished to match the exterior. The door panels are new as well as the kick panels, carpet, and all of the interior hardware. The trunk space is finished to match the interior with leather vented back and side panels and new carpet on the floor. The inside of the trunk lid is like new and includes all new latch, lock, hardware and weatherstripping. The undercarriage is top of the line just as one would expect after seeing the rest of the car. The floor is rust free and like new in appearance. The gas tank is new and has been modified for the new Corvette running gear. The body bushings are all new urethane bushings. The exhaust system is new aluminized dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers and X pipes. It has a 1" front sway bar and 7/8" rear sway bar. Notice the four wheel disc brakes with all new brake lines. This car was definitely built right and no detail was overlooked. The exterior configuration is nothing short of breath taking. The two toned basecoat clearcoat finish is magnificent. The glass is new and all of the windows operate perfectly. You will see that some of the exterior emblems have been shaved for a much cleaner look over all, including the hood and trunk lid areas. Most all of the chrome and body moldings are new including the chrome grille and headlight bezels. The bumpers are like new and the lenses are all in great shape. The new 18" chrome Coys are an added bonus on a set of Hancook 235-40-R18 low profile tires. This attractive lower stance is simply remarkable on this ever popular classic. If you have ever driven a late model Corvette with this LS2 engine and actually felt the throttle response, then imagine that performance in a gorgeous 1955 such as this!
