This 1956 Chevy Bel Air has been in our shop in the past. This time around, there was a problem with the steering box being loose, and the frame was broken. These were pretty straightforward fixes, so we got to work quickly.
We pulled the steering box out of the 1956 Chevy, repaired the frame and reinforced it. Additionally, when we put it back together, we found that there was a broken fitting on the hydraulic lines, so we fixed that leak.
Another issue with this 1956 Chevy Bel Air is that someone had put a fuel sender in the aftermarket fuel tank. It wasn’t setup correctly so the fuel gauge was out of range. We took some parts we had on hand and readjusted the fuel sender. Now this 1956 Chevy has the correct sweep in the gauge. In other words, you can see the right amount of fuel left in the fuel gauge.
The Chevy Bel Air was produced between the years 1950 and 1981. While US production ceased in 1975, Canada continued to produce the Bel Air until 1981. This particular Bel Air was part of the second generation models produced from 1955 to 1957.
