Original 1955 Chevrolet Belair Radio Delete Plate


Just in case someone here is interested in buying one.

Cool looking bowtie pattern that was on the entire '55 dash. 

Hard to get, the real deal ... these are not reproduced.

$50.00 + shipping.

Thanks, Darryl.

I'd say that's for a 55 Chevy Bel-Air.  The 150 & 210 had the painted dash.

 Ya Clint, I just did some quick research, and I wasn't really that knowledgeable about '55 dashes. I wasn't a 100% sure about the differences, so I posted it as 210 and not Belair.

You persuaded me ... it is '55 Belair!

Should be more expensive then, since BA was top of the line, + add 10% if it's for a convert, + 15% if it has power pack, -5% for Powerglide

The radio delete on the 55 I had was a painted od white with a telstar looking shape in it.

Seems weird that a person could afford the Bel Air version of the car but not buy a radio.....

I had put in a Wonderbar radio in my 55 and after I sold it I took it out, and still have it.....They were very expensive for the time.

In 1956 Chevy did away with Chevy symbols on the dash and went with straight short bars instead.

So this radio delete is strickly for the 55 Bel Air and I bet it is quite rare.

Yes, this is stricktly for a 55 Bel Air.    I'd list it on ebay.

The 55 150 & 210 had a painted center portion of the dash, and a different radio delete.   Same idea with 56 & 57.   About 10 years ago I sold a couple 57 Bel Air radio delete plates on ebay, I think they went in the $100 range.    I had some 57 150 & 210 radio delete plates but they didn't sell as well, and almost couldn't give away the 150/210 clock delete plates.    I can't speak for 55 & 56, but all 57 Bel Air's had clocks as the Bel Air trim joins at the clock hole.

I think that deserves an "atta boy".   It's higher than I would have thought, someone must have needed it.

I've got a '58 Chevy radio block-off sitting around in my garage along with a pair of '58 Biscayne fender / door nameplates. I wonder if they are worth anything?

Probably not; the '58s don't have the tri-five following. I wouldn't mind a '58 though, just as long as it didn't have a Continental  kit & stretched back bumper...

 

Back in '55 it is not hard to imagine the radio being left off the original order. Heck, when my '67 Chevelle was made, a fair number of cars built around mine were without radios. Oftentimes the dealer could leave the radio off, then sell whichever radio the customer wanted, be it a manual tune AM, a deluxe pushbutton AM, plus a rear antenna. In Canada on the Beaumonts & Chevelles that year the AM/FM was still a dealer option, not an assembly line option.

A guy at a recent car show on PEI.

He has a '55 Belair drag car in the works, that has an aftermarket 1980s cassette deck in it right now.
