With its widely placed rounded headlamps, broad fascia, and extended tail section, the 1956 Chevy Bel Air is a stunning piece of classic American automotive design. Now, this show-winning ’56 Bel Air restomod is up for sale for nearly a quarter million dollars.
Let’s start outside, where we find this Bel Air restomod covered in well-wrought Black and Pearl Green exterior paint. The lighter hue gets a Gold Pearl finish, which basically means it’ll change colors and sparkle depending on the angle and light, shifting between a golden hue and bright green.
This restomod looks clean thanks to shaved emblems and door handles, while the bumpers were re-plated as well. The rolling stock includes a staggered stance with 18-inch wheels up front and 20-inchers in the rear, once again with a highly polished finish all around.
Moving inside, we find a cream color combo for the soft leather upholstery. The look is subtle and classy, and now includes a revised full-length center console and dash, and new controls as well. Power windows are included, as is a new sliding center compartment door that houses the stereo head unit, the ignition switch, and the controls for power lifting trunk.
Making this machine move is a 502 cubic-inch RamJet V8 Big Block with fuel injection, which was shaved, smoothed, tucked, and polished to a gleaming finish. Sitting front and center is a chrome intake and finned valve covers, while a billet accessory drive and ceramic coated headers round it out. Even the brake master cylinder was relocated in the name of cleanliness.
The ‘eight connects to a Tremec TKO 600 five-speed manual transmission and Ford nine-inch rear end.
Final touches include polished Wilwood brakes and adjustable coilover suspension, while an Art Morrison GT Sport Chassis provides the underpinnings.
Now, this 1956 Chevy Bel Air restomod is up for sale from Marshall Goldman, listed at an eye-widening $238,900.
