Though I know it’s unusual, I’m searching for a pic or two of a 56 Belair that is 2-tone, but NOT the usual 2-tone theme. Meaning, the body one color and the roof only a second color.

I need to have my roof repainted, I’m considering black to match the interior and high gloss black in the engine bay. And because it is unusual, I have been talking to an automotive wrap company who will do the job for fairly cheap which would allow me to test drive the idea for a minimum of a year before committing to the idea.

With the above said, I would still like to see a pic. I have Googled the HECK out of this with zero results.

For the record, I really don’t want to carry the black to the body. Though that theme is normal and popular, it’s just not my thing, but DO love 2-tone.

The body color will remain Med Garnett Red which was painted 22 years ago, but still look nice.

And for those that do not know, my car will be slammed, hoodless, blown.

This is how I want the car to sit and look, but a smaller back tire. Garnett red body and gloss black roof.



Mine will be a little less slammed to make it drivable.

maybe some 210 or 150 models might show something like what your looking to see. :anim_25:

Don't think I've ever seen it on a '56....However, quite common on a '55.

I agree. I have NEVER seen that combo on a 56 Belair. Makes me want to do it all the more.

Thanks David. What I need to do is find a pic of a blown 56 similar to the 57 (same angle) and photoshop my body color with a black top. I wish I had the Adobe software to do that.

I really don’t need to do this, but when talking with people (vendors), it’s nice to share my direction visually.

Goto big box hardware store and get 3 or 4 cans or less of black Plasti dip spray. Mask off what you don't want black. Then spray the roof. It won't be high gloss but you will get the idea. Then you just peel it off when you are done if you don't like it. Mineral spirits cleans it up too. Cost about $30.00 total to do. Just a thought.

Here’s a crude attempt to paint the red/black combo. The red is a brighter (read better) red, but helps me visualize. The MS paint software isn’t ideal, but good enough for government work.

Now I need to do the same with a blown 56 pic. ;-)

This looks nice, I like the black on the posts. Also makes the Bel Aire trim pop.
