DESCRIPTION:1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible This Chevrolet Convertible was born on the Oakland, California assembly line in June of 1955, sold new at Able Chevrolet in Rio Vista, California, and has resided in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada all its life. It is for sale by the survivors of the second owner who painstakingly nurtured this Bel Air for more than four decades. It has a scant 16,500 miles on the odometer, and one look will confirm that this is one of the finest Classic Chevy convertibles on the planet. In a word – it is spectacular. Produced at the end of the production run in 1955, this car retains all of its original components, each one exactly correct, and there are no reproduction parts on this vehicle. The unblemished original Onyx Black and India Ivory finish is flawless and glossy; the exceptionally rare Shadow Gray and India Ivory interior trim - available only in the springtime production run at the California assembly lines – appears as fresh as the day this Chevrolet made its debut. The factory installed continental kit and fender skirts were among the options this car came with, which also include the Power Pak V8 engine, Powerglide automatic transmission, WonderBar AM radio, heater, and power steering. Trim features include a grille guard, side mirrors, bumper extensions, fingernail guard, and day/night rear view mirror. Of course this car has never been in an accident, the body is arrow straight, ripple free, and the hood, trunk, and door gaps are precise. Full documentation of the life of this Bel Air confirms its low, low actual mileage. The kind of attention to detail its loving owner bestowed on this convertible is evident everywhere. The car has never been cosmetically modified in any way, but to ensure that it would run right on modern fuel, the engine was overhauled by well-known Sacramento engine builder Dave Westgard, and now has hardened valve seats. Glasspack mufflers were added for a little more assertive rumble, and a period correct tissue dispenser was installed below the dash that houses a hidden Kenwood cassette stereo unit. Over the years, at numerous car shows throughout California and Nevada, this Chevy has accumulated several dozen Best of Show and First Place class trophies and awards, always garnering decorations at every show it entered. It is simply among the best of the best original Tri-Five Chevys anywhere, and it has the credentials to prove it. This is a private cash sale by owner. Potential buyers are invited to call to make an appointment to inspect the vehicle in the Sacramento area, and third party inspections are welcome. No purchase offers will be considered bone fide without a refundable deposit, subject to vehicle inspection. No text or email offer will be accepted, nor will trade offers be acknowledged.
