1956 Chevy Bel-Air

20221020_165242.jpg

Steve's 56 Chevy Bel-Air 2 door hardtop came in needing extensive rust repair. We replaced the roof and structure, the inner and outer rockers, the inner and outer wheel tubs, both quarter panels, tail light patch panels, trunk, hood, and the front valence. While the car was apart we added a pair of mini-tubs. We then continued to replace the front of the factory frame with custom rails, a Heidts front suspension, a Ride-tech rear 4 link and a Ford 9 inch rear end with Wilwood brakes on all 4 corners. We added a brace to the frame to stiffen up the ride. We trimmed the car with Dakota Digital gauges, vintage air, and a custom interior keeping to period styling.
