Gateway Classic Cars of Charlotte is proud to digitally present this 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air from the Kyle Busch Motorsports Collection.
1955 was a landmark year for Chevrolet-they were finally able to provide a bold response to Ford in the performance battle for the first time in 35 years. Chevrolet's 265 cubic inches Turbo-Fire V8 was a model of efficiency, and, paired with ambitious styling, the Bel Air helped Chevrolet keep 44% of the low-price market segment locked down. The V8 hosted a new 12-volt electrical system that granted greater generator capacity and more efficient battery charging. It allowed power windows, door locks, and windshield wipers, which the previous six-volt electrical system couldn't bear. America fell in love with the Bel Air, and ads claimed it to be the "blue-ribbon beauty that's stealing the thunder from the high-priced cars."
It would be impossible to list everything that has been done to this car, but we will try. The first thing has got to be the eye-catching Twilight Turquoise and White paint job. It looks even better in person. Sitting on an air-ride suspension and aluminum wheels, the stance of this car is just right. Once under the hood, things get even better. A fuel-injected LS Corvette engine sits in front of a four-speed automatic 4L60E transmission. Those ponies work their way back to a Ford 9-inch Posi rear end before finally spinning those big aluminum wheels. Inside this car, you are entirely spoiled. The super comfortable leather interior makes you want never to get out. All the bells and whistles make you feel like you're driving a modern car. This Bel Air features air conditioning, powered rack and pinion steering, power brakes, power windows, upgraded sound system. This car belongs in your garage. Call us today to make that happen!
