This gorgeous 1956 Bel Air convertible is a true American classic car icon. As the VIN number indicates this car is a real 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible 8-cylinder that was built in Norwood OH. As the cowl tag indicates this car retains its original color combination of Onyx Black with Ivory and Charcoal interior. This car was treated to a complete restoration and is show-quality throughout. The body is straight with nice gaps throughout. The paint is beautiful and dresses the car well. There?s something special about a black tri-five Bel Air convertible. It sports a new black soft convertible power top with new motor for smooth operation. It?s equipped with a spotlight that is in working order. Everything on the exterior has been restored or replaced such as the stainless trim chrome trim bumpers with bumper guards antenna grille door handles rocker moldings and T3 headlights. The car sits on brand-new Firestone Deluxe Champion 6.70x15 Whitewall tires that complement the color combination perfectly. Everything in the rich interior has been restored or replaced such as the dash gauges knobs switches steering wheel seats door panels and carpet. The car is equipped with a dash-mounted stoplight viewer and tissue dispenser. It also has a modern retro stereo unit and speakers. The painted trunk compartment is nicely detailed with new padding under trunk lid spare tire jack tools and rubber mat. The engine compartment is also nicely detailed and home to the date-code-correct 265/225hp V8 with dual 4-barrel carburetors. This engine runs great and breathes through a dual exhaust system with chrome tips. The engine is coupled to a 3-speed column-shift manual transmission. The undercarriage was undercoated at some point during its life and was cleaned up very nicely during the restoration. The car has been serviced and completely detailed. From the MS Classic Cars Collection.
