AutoHunter Spotlight: 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air

Restored two-door sedan equipped with modern amenities


Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is a 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air that underwent a frame-off restoration in 2010 in which it received a respray, custom chrome wheels and modern interior amenities.

“Chevrolet’s Tri-Five lineup of passenger cars first launched in 1955 leveraging a squared-off body appearance when compared to earlier model years,” AutoHunter notes in the car’s listing. “A subtle facelift was applied the following year with changes to the grille, sweeping side moldings, and taillights.”

This 1956 example is finished in two-tone black and silver metallic paint and features brightwork in the form of front and rear bumpers, grille, hood ornament, side moldings, and dual exhausts at the rear that are connected to new mufflers.

The interior houses reupholstered two-tone silver and black bench seating, a black painted dash, and black carpeting with Bel Air embroidered floor mats.

According to the seller, this Bel Air received Dynamat insulation and new carpeting in early 2021 along with a Lokar floating throttle pedal. Other interior amenities include a Vintage Air A/C system, a tilt-adjustable steering wheel, power door locks, an alarm system, and an AM/FM radio with iPod connectivity. 

Power comes from a rebuilt 383cid stroker V8 upgraded with an Edelbrock 750 cfm carburetor, a chrome-finished air cleaner and new wiring. The engine is linked to a rebuilt 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission.

This Bel Air’s auction ends September 28 at 11:00 a.m. PDT.
