For sale in our Denver showroom is a one family owned 1956 Sierra Mist and Cream Chevrolet Bel Air. This beautiful two-toned beauty has: New paint, rebuilt 283, new radial tires, new shocks, new belts and hoses, radiator re cored to modern specs, new water pump, new fuel tank sending unit, new thermostat, new ball joints, rebuilt carb, interior steam cleaned, tune up, new floor mats, rebuilt brakes. 1956 is the second generation of the Bel Air. The 1956 Bel Air received a face-lift with a more conventional full-width grille, pleasing those customers who didn't favor the Ferrari-inspired '55 front end. Distinctive two-tone bodyside treatments and graceful front and rear wheel openings completed the "speedline" restyling. Single housings incorporated the taillight, stoplight, and backup light, and the left one held the gas filler - an idea popularized on Cadillacs. Among the seven Bel Air models was a new Sport Sedan, a pillarless four-door hardtop that looked handsome with all the windows rolled down and allowed easy entry into the back seat. Production exceeded 103,000, compared to 128,000 two-door hardtops. Shapely two-door Nomad wagons topped the price chart at $2,608, but now carried the same interior and rear-wheel sheet metal as other Bel Airs, lacking the original's unique trim. Only 7,886 were built. The least costly Bel Air, at $2,025, was the two-door sedan. Seatbelts, shoulder harnesses, and a padded dashboard were available, and full-size cars could even get the hot Corvette 225-horsepower engine. In 1956 sales material there was an optional rain-sensing automatic top, which was first seen on the 1951 LaSabre concept car. However, it is believed that it was never installed on a car. Popular Mechanics reported only 7.4% of owners in their survey ordered seat belts.
During that same year 1956, iconic Rock 'n' Roll performer Elvis Presley released his first pop single "Heartbreak Hotel." Elvis recorded the track earlier in the month at a studio in Nashville, Tennessee not long after he had signed his major recording contract with RCA. "Heartbreak Hotel" soon became the number one song on the Billboard pop charts for eight weeks after its release, it also hit number one on the country singles chart. This was also his first single to sell over one million copies. What a great track to listen to as you cruise down the road in this gorgeous Bel Air.
