Starting in 1962 the Chevrolet Bel Air didn’t just have new sheet metal, it had an entirely new body and shorter wheelbase than the previous 4th generation of the model. You probably remember riding around in a wagon as a child at some point; maybe that’s why wagon has always remained so popular with collectors.
This 1962 Bel Air wagon is a killer looking beach cruise that’s ready to take you anywhere you want to go. The car has a brand new interior, and one off roof rack that’s perfect for your surfboards or coolers.
Powered by a 327CI small block, this Bel Air has a brand new FiTech fuel injection system. These systems are high tech, reliable and great for the average hotrodder looking for a modern FI system. The transmission is a standard 350 and this car is easy to maneuver with power steering and power brakes as well.
The Chevy rides on Coys wheels and brand new radial tires. The car has dropped spindles up front giving it a killer looking stance. Bringing this classic Chevy to a halt is a set of Wilwood disc brakes on a four corners. The car stops on a dime and is easy as pie to drive!
For the Chevy enthusiast looking for a great driver in which to hit the open road, this Bel Air wagon is your classic cure.
