When you've got a winner, how do you top it? Well, Chevrolet's ad agency figured out a way. The Hot One, as the 1955 V-8 had been dubbed, is even hotter read the 1956 ads. This referred to the high-compression, four-barrel, dual-exhaust Power Pack option, which now developed 205-hp, courtesy of higher compression. This beautiful Bel Air Convertible has this desirable powerplant option. The 1956 Chevrolets displayed bold, new Motoramic styling from handsomely recessed headlights to rakish rear fender cutouts. With plenty of vibrant color combinations to choose from, the cars displayed a youthful exuberance without sacrificing the traditional Chevrolet quality that was expected in every detail. This frame-off restored 1956 Bel Air Convertible has the Power Pack installation, along with a 700r4 automatic transmission. Finished in paint Code 707, (according to the cars data tag) this translates to India Ivory and Nassau Blue two-tone. The interior is also two-tone; in its case, two complementary shades of blue, while the soft-top is appropriately white. Power accessories were becoming more popular in this price field, as evidenced by this car's many striking features. Among these are a Continental kit, fender skirts, dual exhaust with extensions, later model radio/cassette unit in the same location as original, dual sideview mirrors, seatbelts, factory hubcaps, wide whitewall tires; power top, windows, steering and brakes. This model of car is a pleasure to drive; in part due to its wide view through the rakish, panoramic windshield with crank-operated ventipanes for refreshing airflow through the cabin and four-fender visibility from the driver's seat. The beautifully restored Chevrolet offered here was a 1st place winner at the Reno Nevada 16th International Classic Chevy Club scoring an impressive 997 points out of a possible 1000 points.
