136211 / 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air

https://www.rkmotors.com/vehicles/2964/1955-chevrolet-bel-air Fresh out of a professional, $350K build, this Chevy is a literal manifestation of “only the best”. If you’re looking for a storied custom that attracts big crowds and even bigger trophies, it’s prime time for Limetime! Built by Graham’s Bel Air Hot Rod Shop in Fresno, California, this freshly finished Bel Air does an excellent job of wrapping vintage style around modern technology. A solid California fruit that was ripe for customization, the car was subjected to a systematic, no-expense-spared build that involved $350K and thousands of hours of labor. During that build, its clean body was completely stripped, thoroughly massaged and layered in a liquid-smooth coat of House Of Kolor Limetime 2-stage. Every surface of that pearl pigment, shot by Vicente Gonzales of Madera, California’s Fab-Worx, was sanded, buffed and perfected -- top to bottom. And in January of 2016, this incredible custom was professionally appraised at $265K. Toss the hood and you’ll find a hot LS3 small block that, thanks to a few tweaks, creates a stout 550 horsepower. Behind that mill, a fresh 4L65E 4-speed twists a custom Arizona Driveshaft, which spins a familiar 10-bolt axle that’s finished with 3.55 gears and a posi-traction differential. That GM pumpkin is an integral part of a sturdy Jim Meyer Racing 4-link, which weaves a beefy panhard bar around adjustable QA-1 coil-overs. Opposite that 4-link, a Jim Meyer Racing front-clip sandwiches power rack-and-pinion steering between tubular control arms and two more coil-over-shocks. Quick stops are a cinch thanks to Wilwood DynaPro calipers and 12-inch drilled and slotted rotors. And 17-inch Budnik Gassers throw torque through BF Goodrich g-Force Sports. Owning a professionally customized classic that’s lauded by some of the most established organizations in the automotive community is the stuff most gearheads dream about.

Tam boyutlu Chevy Bel Air, 1955 için tamamen yeni bir stil ve yeni V-8 gücü aldı. 15 fit uzunluğundaydı ve etrafını saran şık bir Sweep Sight ön camıyla yoldaki diğer çoğu araçtan daha alçaktı. Dingil mesafesi 115 inçte değişmeden kaldı ve genel tasarım zevkli ve gün için dengeliydi. GM'nin reklam kampanyasında "Sıcak Olan" olarak adlandırılan Chevrolet'nin stili, yumurta kasası ızgarası, kapüşonlu farları, ön çamurluklardaki krom mızrakları, paslanmaz çelik pencere pervazları ve tam tekerlek kapakları ile modaya uygun ve netti. 1955 için yeni özellikler arasında 12 voltluk elektrik sistemi, geliştirilmiş frenler ve Glide Ride süspansiyon sistemi vardı. Gövde stili listesine, benzersiz bir hardtop tavan çizgisine sahip Bel Air Nomad adlı yeni bir iki kapılı vagon eklendi.

Motor Trend dergisi, Bel Air'e sürüş ve kullanım için en yüksek notları verdi ve Popular Mechanics, V-8 Bel Air için 0-60 MPH hızlanmanın 12,9 saniyede olduğunu bildirdi, bu 3.300 lb.'lik bir araba için muazzam bir başarıydı.
