1955 Chevrolet Bell Air Resto Mod
Why Is This Car Special
The ’55 Chevy was the first successful Chevrolet with an optional V8 engine, the new 265-cubic-inch overhead valve V8 was designed to be smaller, lighter, and more powerful than previous V8s in the auto industry.
We have a completely restored 1955 Chevy here at Skyway Classics that now has a much more potent drive train than that original and looks great with its ravishing red paint and beautiful tan custom interior.

The engine in ours is a much modified fuel injected Supercharged 383 CID V8 engine with its polished/grey supercharger wearing a complete Holley Sniper EFI fuel injection system that is controlled by the dash unit in the interior, large open element air cleaner system with a chrome lid, bright chrome Chevrolet logo valve covers, MSD ignition parts, performance cam and kit, headers flowing back to a dual “Cherry Bomb” exhaust system, air conditioning, power steering, and power brakes with 4 wheel discs.
This engine is mated to a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission and delivers that horsepower to the ground through a Ford 9″ rear end with 3.25 gears. The engine and drivetrain has under 10k miles on it and this Tri Five can run with the best of them.
The painted and detailed engine compartment completes the look and will look good at all the cruises and shows.
As you can see, the custom tan interior has a mix of classic 55 looks with added luxury and upgrades featuring a custom tan leather full bench seat with suede inserts and matching rear seat, matching door panels and headliner, aftermarket billet and leather steering wheel on the tilt steering wheel, Air conditioning, power steering, power brakes with 4 wheel disc, custom aftermarket stereo unit, B&M shifter, and the Holley Sniper EFI computer.
This 55 is as nice and comfortable as you will ever find and has tan carpeting with red floor mats, a floor console housing the chrome B&M shifter, and even the Chevy clock in the passenger side of the dash.
Our 1955 has the classic look and feel as it did back when it was new, only better this time around with its bright red paint that is spectacular. It has new paint and has been restored and has that new look and feel.
It also has great chrome bumpers front and rear, chrome grille, 17″ Ridler chrome wheels wrapped in black sidewall radial tires, all the Bel Air chrome trim, chrome mirrors, chrome door handles, and of course, the iconic chrome hood ornament.
The 1955 Chevrolet we have at Skyway Classics has the look as it did in 1955, only better and with a lot more supercharged power, creature comforts, custom interior, and better handling.
If you are looking for a 55 this is one stunning Resto Mod you should consider adding to your garage.
