Take a good look at this 1955 Chevy Bel Air. This pristine ride belongs to Joel Sellers, of Garden Grove, California, and it's a beautiful example of a first-year Tri Five.

So, why is it that this candy red paint still looks so smooth? Joel says it's mostly because he spared no expense at the bodyshop. The deep red paint was applied, and then protected by nine coats of clear. Joel also takes great care to keep it polished, buffed, and in good condition in between car shows.

Of all the details to be found on Joel's '55, the thing that stands out the most is undoubtedly its Candy Apple Red paint. The hue is deep and rich, and the gloss looks so wet you might think it was painted yesterday. However, that's not the case. Far from it, in fact. Joel tells us that this paint was applied in 2000 — it sure doesn't look like a nearly 17-year-old paint job.
