This is a very solid example of a 55. This is a true BelAir car that originally was a 6 cylinder The paint is 30 years old and shows as such. It looks great for a driver but it has the normal dings and nicks that you would expect from 30 years of enjoyment. It also allows you to see how solid the body is on this 55. Everything else on this car is in great shape or new. Everything from the radiator to the rear end is new or rebuilt. It has a new aluminum Griffin radiator and shroud with electric fan. A fresh 454 with Winters aluminum heads, roller rockers and a hydraulic camshaft. It has a Victor Jr. intake, Holley carburetor, MSD distributor and Mallory ignition. The engine accessories are driven with a March Performance 5 rib pulley system. All of this is monitored on Auto Meter gauges. The transmission is a fresh M21 4 speed with new clutch and flywheel connected to a posi 3:36 stock housing rear. The wheels are American Racing Hopsters in 17″ with a staggered tire setup. The interior is in great shape and shows well. All of the front and rear supension and steering have been rebuilt. This car drives very good and is very tight! It has disc brakes up front with a power booster and master cylinder and GM style proportioning valve. It has a new steering box and lines with front and rear sway bars. You must drive and see this car to appreciate what it actually is. All of the glass and trim are nice with the exception of the bumpers, they are a little weak. Very solid car that’s ready to be driven or further the restoration. Paint and bumpers would complete the restoration on this one, or you could just get out and drive it with no concerns of picking up a chip here or there! This car is in Smyrna, TN.
