This is the unassuming nice guy that's got the ability to beat
everyone up. On the outside it looks like a nice pristine 1963
Chevrolet Bel Air wagon dressed in a dignified white. What you
don't see is the performance crate motor and Corvette
fully-independent suspension. So this is the three-row wagon that
can haul far more than just the family.
Bel Air wagons from this era are already highly collectable because the wide chrome grille up front and the full-length trim are both icons of the 60s. In fact, the brightwork is so important that it was all removed during restoration, de-anodized, polished, and carefully re-installed. And what helps make it all stand out even more is the paint. Ermine White is a great color that was even shared with the Corvette - something to keep in mind as you read the other details of this custom build. The final piece to catch the eye-catching package is a set of large 17-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels. After all, don't you just love how they tuck under the rear fenders and contribute to the aggressive stance?
When it comes time to carry all of your family and friends, do it in style with this fresh red interior. The cloth and vinyl benches have everything in place, right down to the buttons stitched into the seatbacks. This very correct presentation is courtesy of the investment in new Ciadella seat covers. And yes, you do see that this one has the third-row seat option. That's a great piece we wish we could still get in wagons today, because after all, any noisy kid is facing the other direction. But the seat that really matters the most is the driver's seat. That's where you're in control of everything from the AM/FM/CD stereo, to the upgraded sports steering wheel. And as you see the large column-mounted tach and the matching auxiliary gauge trio to the side, these tell your senses there's something special under the hood even before you twist the key and hear the side pipes roar.
The engine bay looks far more modern than anything that came out of the '60s... and there's a good reason why. You're looking at a new 350 cubic-inch crate V8. More than just a fresh performance motor, this has modern fuel injection. And if you think this V8 looks like it belongs in a C4 Corvette, then you're going to love the fully-independent sports suspension that was borrowed from one, too. So yes, this is the classic grocery-getter that has the modern moves to literally run circles around other classics. But more than just performance, this very custom Bel Air is an all-around great driver. That's why you have power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and the grip of modern Goodyear Eagle RS tires. Plus, the 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission was rebuilt less than 1,000 miles ago, so feel free to enjoy overdrive cruising near or far.
This is the cool kind of custom build that you can share with the family, or just enjoy the full restomod performance all by yourself. And with such an obtainable price, what's stopping you from doing it all? Call today!!!
