1956 Chevy BelAir

This 1956 Chevrolet BelAir is a absolute gorgeous 2 door hardtop, having benefitted from a Resto-Mod.1956 marked the second year of the Tri-Five Chevy era and when the ’56 Chevyswere introduced to dealers back in November 1955, they were clearly a majorupgrade from the previous year models. With the Bel Air sitting atop theChevrolet hierarchy back in 1956, they were richly appointed both inside andout. On the outside, the ’56 Bel Airs sported a brand new full-width chrome grillethat sat below the new-look hood that was flatter, longer, and had anaccentuated V treatment. Down the beltline of the ’56 Bel Air was a brand-newchrome side trim design with a painted insert that ran essentially the fulllength of the car and swept down at the rear. Of course, besides the iconic ’56side trim, perhaps the most famous exterior update occurred with regards to theplacement of the gas filler cap which, in true 50s fashion, was hidden behindthe driver’s side taillight. The interiors on the Bel Air were the plushest interior offered by Chevrolet back in 1956 and they were very well-optioned. More specifically, every 1956 Bel Air came with a clock and lockable gloveboxes, both of which were considered big luxuries back in 1956.
