"The Best of the Best!"
This beautiful 1955 Chevrolet Belair is a work of art. The DuPont Apricot Brandy and Gun Barrel Gray paint is just stunning. The colors work extremely well together. This high quality paint job is carried over in to the trunk and engine compartment of the car. The workmanship it took to complete this paint job shows in how deep the paint is and how the metal flake dances in the sunshine. Only paint jobs of the highest quality look like this.
The Apricot leather interior is done with hand crafted artistry found in only the finest of cars. Everything on the interior is done to complement the other touches on the car. The leather is glove soft and the inserts and highlights set the interior to a high standard. The door panels are done to match with custom window cranks and door handles with leather inserts that match the seats. Its touches like this that set high quality cars apart from the run of the mill hot rods.
