There’s no shortage of cool ways to build a ’55 Bel Air. One particular way that caught our eye was to build one into a limousine. Now some Cadillacs came from the factory as a limo, but never a ’55 Bel Air. We spotted this cool ride and just wanted to share it with you.
The builder of it says that it was professionally lengthened by 48 inches in the middle. The rest of the car received a normal restoration such as a 327 SBC under the hood backed by a TH350 trans. On the inside there’s an Ididit steering column. RideTech air ride shocks in the rear help keep the Bel Air level while transporting passengers.
In the back is a stock rear seat, but with the extra 48 inches or room there’s a rear-facing bench seat. That means if you had three people on each bench, you could cruise comfortably with nine-passengers in this limo!
After enjoying the car for 15 years and putting over 20,000 miles on it, the owner sold it off at Mecum to go to it’s new owner. What a cool car!
