• Smooth and striking custom “Tri-Five” ride
• Powerful and highly accessorized GM 350 V-8
• Striking looks with outstanding paint and custom interior
• Outstanding power, presence, and build quality

350 cid GM V-8 engine, Holley four-barrel carburetor, 300 HP, automatic overdrive transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, power-assisted front disc, rear drum hydraulic brakes; wheelbase: 115"


Mildly restyled for 1956, the full-size Chevrolet passenger-car line continued and improved the handsome basic styling introduced for 1955. Available in a broad range of body styles and organized along three trim levels, including the entry-level 150, mid-range 210, and top-level Bel Air, the 1956 Chevrolet model line offered literally something for every buyer.

During 1956, Chevrolet confirmed the performance delivered by its powerful new small-block V-8 engine by winning the annual Pike’s Peak Hill Climb. Legendary garage and racing-team owner “Smokey” Yunick used a 1956 Chevrolet to set a 24-hour average-speed record for American-built production cars at 101.58 mph, beating Chrysler’s old record by nearly 12 miles per hour. With its fine styling, many amenities, strong competition record and legendary small-block V-8, the 1956 Chevrolets were a huge success, particularly with nearly 670,000 top-tier Bel Airs alone produced for 1956.

An all-time favorite with collectors, restorers, drag racers, and hot rodders alike, the ’56 Chevrolet in all its many forms remains a true classic-car icon today. Perhaps best of all, with its GM Motorama-inspired “dream car” styling and uncanny ability to accommodate virtually any conceivable powertrain combination, the ’56 Chevy provides a perfect basis for a cool modern custom treatment using today’s technologies and construction quality. This ’56 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible is a great and highly enjoyable example.

Featuring an outstanding body and deep maroon paint finish, handsomely accented by restrained brightwork and custom pleated interior upholstery, this ’56 Chevrolet Bel Air custom features ample power delivery from a healthy GM 350 cid small-block V-8 engine mated to an overdrive automatic transmission. Engine upgrades are abundant, including a Holley dual-inlet air cleaner assembly and four-barrel carburetor, intake spacer, aftermarket intake manifold, tubular headers, MSD ignition system, MSD distributor and MSD spark-plug wires, plus a Be Cool aluminum radiator. Other underhood highlights include a chromed radiator support, a billet serpentine accessory-belt drive, polished and finned aluminum rocker covers, and a chromed power-brake booster and dual-circuit master cylinder. Vintage Air air-conditioning ensures comfortable cruising and a stereo/cassette unit delivers additional entertainment. Front disc, rear drum brakes provide stopping and power steering gear makes extended drives a pleasure. Riding on a set of polished American Racing Torq-Thrust wheels and radial tires, this ’56 Chevy Bel Air Street Rod celebrates the iconic “Tri-Five” hot rods of the past while delivering an outstanding experience with modern features and passenger amenities.
