1955 Chevrolet Bel-Air
24/10/2008 - 19/11/2008
1955 was the year for V8 Chevys. The world of american cars had a new star: the BEL AIR. If the '54 and '55 were mearly dull sedans, the '55 started a new cult thanks to its V8. It soon became a movie star in Steven Spilberg's American Grafitti where a young actor by the name of Harrison Ford tried to impress high school girls with his tuned-up V8.
Our Bel Air just graduated from its rejunvenation process, where the mechanicals, upholstery, gearbox and engine weretotaly rebuilt and recrafted.
As a final "utility" touch we also decided to fit an A/C system especially designed for the "fat lady".
Pay close attention to your rear view mirrors and you might be lucky enough to see her around the city.
