Vehicle Description

1951 Chevrolet Bel Air has been upgraded with proper V8 power, an overdrive transmission, and a custom A/C interior. So it's the kind of upgraded classic that really earns its attention-grabbing two-tone paint.

The original generation Bel Air launched a revolution that defined the 1950s. The special roof looks like a convertible with its hardtop in place. It really complements the sleek roofline, and points the way for the sporty Impalas and Chevelles of the future. You can really see it quite well on this example, because the creamy white roof stands out nicely from the fiery red/orange paint on the body. And of course, like any good 1950s American cruiser, there's plenty of chrome. This Bel Air has brightwork surrounding every piece of glass, running down the side, outlining the lower rear fender, surrounding every exterior light, and smiling with a big grille. And the upgraded 15-inch wheels go with the brightwork package while also announcing there's some added performance in this one.

The pillarless hardtop lets people get a good view inside, and so it's great to have such a special interior. The tan color looks timeless against the bright red of the exterior, but you also know this is a fresh update. After all, you could never get that kind of comfy contouring on your front seats in the 1950s, and the fold-down armrest even gives you bucket-like comfort. The rear seats match the upholstery of the front and it's sofa-like comfortable. So if this sounds like a nice car to share with family and friends, then you'll also love the upgrade to R134a air conditioning. This coupe is also great for the driver-oriented upgrades, like the updated steering wheel on a tilt column, clear Classic Instruments gauges, and a SunPro tach neatly integrated in the center of the dash.

This Bel Air pre-dates GM's mighty small block era, but a car like this really deserves that kind of power upgrade. It proudly shows off the 350 cubic-inch V8 with a tidy look and polished components like the air topper and valve covers. It's a strong-running package that even has nice upgrades like the Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and an aluminum radiator. And since this one is built to be a true cruiser, you have great driving features, like power steering, power brakes, and a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive.

This is the hardtop coupe that was built to driver everywhere and grab plenty of attention doing it. So if you love a great custom classic, don't miss this Bel Air. Call today!!!
