Skyway Classics John Hayes (727) 688-1148 1800 14th Ave E Palmetto Florida 34221 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Vehicle Information VIN: VC55G173972 Stock: 186-FL Mileage: 97,664 Color: White & Yellow Trans: 2 Speed Automatic Engine: 265 V8 MPG: Drivetrain: Description History
The 1955 Chevrolet or '55 Chevy, is an automobile that was made by Chevrolet in 1955. It is considered a huge turning point for the manufacturer and a major success. It was available in three models: the 150, 210, and Bel Air.
The '55 Chevy was the first successful Chevrolet with an optional V8 engine. In 1955, Chevrolet decided to fit its new car with an overhead valve V8 engine design, which was similar to the 1949 Oldsmobile Rocket 88 V8 engine. The new 265-cubic-inch overhead valve V8 was designed to be smaller, lighter, and more powerful than previous V8s in the auto industry.
Why This Car Is Special
The pretty yellow and white 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air we have at Skyway Classics has the classic look and feel as it did back when it was new. It has new paint and has been restored but it still has that as new look and feel. It should because it is painted yellow/white and the original color green interior too.
The Turbo Fire V8 Passenger 265 engine in this 55 is the original (see the photo of the engine stamping number on the motor) in the very clean and authentic engine compartment. It made 162 horse @ 4400 RPM 137 ft/lb of torque @ 4000 RPM with its two-barrel carb. It still runs the correct factory oil filled air cleaner assembly , distributer, cast iron intake and exhaust manifold, and more. The tranny is the correct Power Glide and the exhaust is a single which exits the rear as stock.
As stated earlier, the interior is as a time capsule with its aqua painted dash with aluminum trim, aqua painted steering wheel with rim blow horn, correct door panels and carpet, seatbelts, and headliner. This 55 is as original as you will find.
The yellow/white paint combination is great looking as well as very nice. The front and rear chrome bumpers are nice as is all the trim. The 55 rides on wide whitewall tires and painted wheels with the correct 1955 Chevy hubcaps too. All of the suspension and running components of this Bel Air has been replaced and improved to make it ride as great as it looks.
The 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air we have at Skyway Classics has the look as it did in 1955. It is great to look at, great mechanicals, and a blast to take to shows and cruises. Come see it today.
