The beautiful interior on this Bel Air is as it would have been with the addition of some very nice current upgrades, including Vintage Air, Flaming River steering column and an aftermarket sound system. The convertible top has been replaced with a Mercedes fabric cloth top, all-power convertible with cover. The car is powered by a 1962 Chevy 327ci engine and a 3-speed Turbo Hydromatic transmission. The rear end, which includes 3:56 ratio, has been completely rebuilt. Other features include a Griffin stainless radiator with correct core support, upgraded to front disc brakes and power steering with remote reservoir. It rides on American Torq Thrust rims and sits low with 2" drop spindles. All of the chrome on this awesome Bel Air - and there is a lot of it - is in great shape. An excellent example, this show car rides and drives smooth.
