This is a no-expense spared restoration of what was a rust-free California 1955 Chevy Bel Air Post. In 2004 the owner set out on a complete body-off restoration to very high standards. The Bel Air has traveled a total of 4,600 miles since the restoration and a mere 30 miles since the installation of a new GM crate motor from GM Performance. This would cost at least $100,000 to duplicate at a custom restoration shop. This was built by a retired computer technology executive that is a perfectionist and set out to build his dream Bel Air!!
Norm wanted a stock Bel Air that had only minimal enhancements to make it a great driving motorcar.
Enhancements to the Bel Air includes:
- New GM Crate 350 cu in engine
- Turbo 400Transmission
- 9 inch 31 spline rear
- Power Steering
- Power brakes
- Vintage Air/Heat
- Cross Flow Radiator
- Two inch drop spindles with one inch drop springs
- Slat Flat wheels
- Front and rear sway bars
The paint and build quality of this Bel Air is what you would see in a high-point concours restoration. They added sound deadening throughout and the fit and finish throughout is excellent. The doors close better than new and there isn’t a creak, squeak or rattle throughout the car. Not a nut or bolt was left unattended, every detail was restored.
This is not your typical run-of-the-mill Bel Air, but a high quality restoration and re-engineering of the original American classic: the 1955 Chevy Bel Air.
