What happens when you take a timeless Chevrolet body, bolt it to a custom chassis, drop in a modern Chevrolet V8 and pile on a list of mind-blowing parts? You get one incredible classic that instantly becomes the center of attention wherever it goes! Featuring a cool custom appearance, a custom leather interior, and a level of detail that requires multiple looks to fully comprehend, this sweet Bel Air is a compilation of top-notch components from some of the biggest names in the business. And what's better: it's a fully sorted cruiser that was built, above all else, to be driven and enjoyed. If you're the kind of enthusiast who wants an impressive ride that you can hop in, turn the key and sail some blacktop with, your chariot has arrived!

STYLE, FOR DECADES

Blasted bare and professionally restored by the pros at Franklin, North Carolina's GT Graphics and Customs, this sweet Bel Air is a refreshing take on a storied classic. Naturally, a head-turning profile needs head-turning paint, which, with the help of R-M, manifested as slick Candy Blue and Metallic Silver two-stage. And today, this legendary Chevy rolls as one razor-sharp road rocket that's poised to show and raring to go!

As a collector car enthusiast, you really can't go wrong with any '50s Chevy. But many folks cherish the streamlined swagger of the division's '56 model. At the front of this five-six, a polished grille hangs bowtie-stamped parking lamps between stainless-trimmed headlights and a polished and guarded bumper. At the top of that grille, a rolled hood centers a polished Jetbird between a requisite “V” and tinted glass that's draped in polished frames. At the base of those frames, electric wipers join small mirrors to reflect traditional door handles and tight Haartz cloth. At the sides of that cloth, sculpted rocker guards look great under flashy trim spears. And at the back of the car, a second polished and guarded bumper frames an ornate trunk crest, a second polished “V” and crisp LED taillights.

POWER, FOR MILES

Enact this classic's polished hood supports and you'll find an even six liters of proven Chevrolet small block that, officially dubbed the GM LS2, spins smooth horsepower into miles of open-road reliability! At the front of that aluminum mill, a color-keyed filter cone funnels wind into a polished tube, which fronts a Candy Blue GM throttle body. A polished intake sends a finely tuned mixture of fuel and air into hot 243 heads, which float polished valve covers under a billet oil cap. Those stock heads cap a stock, factory-spec rotating assembly. A polished Street & Performance serpentine drive spins modern power steering under a polished alternator and a polished AC compressor. Candy Blue coils fire blue Maxx Performance plug wires, which split coated, factory-spec exhaust manifolds. A polished Be Cool radiator twins electric puller fans under a polished support. Details like stainless lines, trick dipsticks and polished brake components ensure first-class presentation. And the clean, Candy Blue mill rides in a smooth, Candy Blue bay.

TRADITION PLUS ABILITY

Park this Bel Air on a lift and you'll find solid floorpans that frame modern aftermarket components in a crisp coat of Candy Blue skin. A tough 4L65E 4-speed twists power to a sturdy axle that, according to the car's owner, spins a posi-traction differential around fun, 3.42 gears. Power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering leads an Art Morrison Sport GT chassis that's finished with thick sway bars, tubular control arms and Strange coil-over-shocks. At the corners, power-assisted calipers clamp a quartet of vented rotors. Charred dinosaurs traverse large-diameter pipes, which position mean Magnaflow mufflers in front of boxed and polished tips. And torque transitions to pavement through chrome US Mags Standards, which spin 245/45ZR18 Venezia Crusades.

TIME TO CRUISE

Behind the solid-closing doors you'll find a custom leather cockpit that wraps tons of classic flash in miles of modern flair. Front and center, four bolstered buckets border a custom, full-length console. Perched on premium carpet, that leather-wrapped divider centers a short Lokar shifter behind controls for Vintage Air conditioning. A Metallic Silver dash hangs ball-milled billet around Dakota Digital telemetry and a modern Antique Automobile radio that's made to resemble an original Wonder Bar seeker. Custom side panels front modern power windows. The driver spins a billet steering wheel around a polished, tilting column. And naturally, this Chevy's trunk has been customized to match!

Since so many tri-five enthusiasts seem to be enamored with double-nickels and five-sevens, this modified mid-year isn't exactly something you'll see at every show. And its modern suspension, stylish looks and proven Chevrolet power are sure to get you noticed no matter where you go. After all, is there anything better than a drop-top crowd-gatherer that barks through a rowdy V8 and stares through outrageous aesthetics? We think not! So, come on in and pick up your turn-key hot rod.
