1955 Chevrolet Bell Air Restored
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, Top-Of-The Line, 1955 Chevy here at Skyway Classics that is one of the finest in the country, now has a much more potent drive train than that original, and looks great with its ravishing red paint and beautiful tan custom interior.
