1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Post, Body Off Resto-Custom, 4k Miles, Fabulous!

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.
