1956 Chevrolet Bel Air
Mileage: 18,132 U.S. miles VIN#: VC560001869
The owner of this Bel Air listed the car on Bring a Trailer within the past twelve months were it bid to $19,000, not meeting his reserve. In hindsight, he wishes he had taken the offer and he is out $100 for the listing. Since that time, he has replaced the power steering pump, the fuel pump and other mechanical issues that were present when he listed the car on BAT, so the car is in fact in better condition than when it was offered on line previously. The following is the write up from Bring a Trailer and I could not a better job of describing the car at the moment.
This 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air four-door sedan is finished in red and white over a matching interior and powered by a 265ci V8 paired with a four-speed 700R4 automatic transmission. Features include Bel Air trim, a 12-volt electrical system, lowered suspension, power steering, power disc brakes, a dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers, painted steel wheels with covers, and a retro-style AM/FM/Cassette stereo. The car was repainted in 1990 and subsequently acquired by the seller in 1994. This Bel Air sedan is offered with a clean Oregon title in the seller’s name.
The car is said to have been repainted red and white during previous ownership. Features include a hood ornament, Bel Air trim and badging, chrome bumpers and mirrors, styled tailfins with brushed metal inserts, and dual-outlet exhausts that exit below the rear bumper. The seller notes rust on the edge of the rear passenger-side door and the lower edge of the driver-side front fender.
The body-colored steel wheels wear Chevrolet hubcaps and are mounted with Coker Classic whitewall tires. The car is fitted with power steering, a dual master brake cylinder, and front drop spindles.
