Tri-Five Chevrolets (1955-1957) are some of the most recognizable, popular, and beloved automobiles to ever turn a wheel on an American turnpike
Clare MacKichan and others working under Harley Earl designed what many regard as the definitive 1950’s automobiles. When compared to today’s amorphous styling, it’s no wonder that these cars continue to attract attention and admiration from multiple generations of enthusiasts.
This stunning 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible beautifully demonstrates the world-class styling and engineering that made these cars legendary. Beneath the hood is the correct and beautifully restored 265 V8 that’s sporting a correct Winters foundry aluminum intake manifold with dual Carter 4bbl carburetors and nestled under the imposing “batwing” air cleaner, one of the greatest conversation starters known to man!
Additional features include correct Onyx Black paint, correct Ivory and Charcoal trim, power steering, power top, 3-speed manual transmission, 3.70 rear gears, dual exhaust, grille guard, Continental kit, fender skirts, and 205/75R15 wide whitewall tires on steel wheels with rare ’56 wire wheel covers.
Although the frame-off restoration was performed years ago, the professional quality of the work and obviously pampered ownership have resulted in a still magnificent and legendary automobile.
