1956 Chevrolet Bel Air


From its massaged chassis and 502 cubic inch big block to its rich paint and custom leather interior, this Bel Air features the best of everything! While the pros at Charlotte, North Carolina’s Fred Hudson Paint & Collision started this sedan’s body-off restoration by stripping its fuselage to bare metal, its solid profile needed little attention when it came to significant repairs. That meant the restorers could spend ample time perfecting the car’s surfaces, and the result is all-original panels that are exceptionally flat, displaying nary a wave or ripple anywhere. As expected, that 2008 reboot ensured fit and finish that’s significantly above ’50s factory fodder. And glossy Glasurit pearl 2-stage, which began life as an unholy alliance of Dodge Viper Blue and Cadillac White Diamond, creates an affluent demeanor that most pastels simply can’t touch. Twisting stout 9.6 to 1 compression into 502 horsepower and 544 lb./ft. of torque, this sedan’s 502 cubic inch GM Performance Parts big block proves the mindset of bigger is always better is alive and doing well! Behind that awesome big block, a tough hydraulic clutch kicks a proven Tremec TKO600 5-speed, which spins 3.70 gears and a posi-traction differential around a Currie 9-inch axle. That body-matched pumpkin floats in a modified rear suspension, which mixes relocated springs with sturdy traction bars. Opposite that clip, a factory front-half cages a 605 steering box between tubular upper control arms. At the corners, two GM calipers and two Wilwood calipers squeeze a quartet of vented rotors. And all that premium hardware rolls on a American Racing Torq Thrust IIs, which spin 225/55R17 Pirelli P6 Allroads in front of 285/40ZR18 Pirelli P Zero Neros. If you’re in the market for big performance with timeless Motor City swagger, check out this incredible Bel Air! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information.
