Inclusive of applicable buyer's fee.

RM | Auctions - THE CHARLIE THOMAS COLLECTION 20 OCTOBER 2012


Chassis No.
VC56J146481

205 hp, 265 cu. in. overhead valve V-8 “Power Pack” engine with a single four-barrel carburetor, Powerglide two-speed automatic transmission, independent front with rear leaf springs, and four-wheel drum brakes. Wheelbase: 115 in.

As exemplified on this beautiful Adobe Beige over Sierra Gold Bel Air, the subtle changes to the Chevy’s body design in 1956 gave it a fresh, new, lighter look. With matching copper and tan interior, this hardtop is hard to surpass. The upholstery is in excellent condition, and the coordinating door panels and carpeting fit perfectly. The dash is highlighted with nicely presented chrome and a pushbutton radio. Equally brilliant is the exterior brightwork, which shows minimal wear since restoration. Beneath the hood is a practically spotless engine compartment with clean wiring and firewall, a V-8 with a four-barrel carburetor, power brakes, and a desirable power steering/generator combo. The undercarriage has been well detailed with a clean and tidy exhaust, a suspension system, and undercoating on the pans. Silvertown radial wide whitewall tires and fender skirts insure a great ride with a vintage look.
