This 1954 Chevrolet Bel Air is about being a cool cruising classic.
After all, you have the factory-correct two-tone, a ton of
brightwork, and a smooth original-style setup that is pure
nostalgia from behind the wheel.
The top-of-the-line Bel Air added plenty more bright trim, and the
place you first notice it on this coupe is on the roof. The full
window surrounds and complete bright c-pillar makes for a terrific
separating line for the Shoreline Beige and Pueblo Tan two-tone.
These factory-correct hues give this classic '50s Chevy a very cool
Art Deco feeling. But what you really love about an American
classic like this is that its home to some of the best brightwork
around. Besides the roof trim, the Bel Air correctly has trim
running the full length of the side, outlining the lower rear
fenders, surrounding every exterior light, and smiling with a shiny
toothy grille. You even get the correct wheel covers that leave a
line of matching tan paint before those beautiful whitewalls. So
this one really impressed with its level of completeness.
The interior feels like a time capsule. The option lists were a lot
shorter in 1954, which gives this car an uncluttered appearance of
a simpler time. The steering column is uncomplicated, with a big
wheel to help make turning a breeze. Behind it are just two stalks
- one for the turn signal and the other to shift the manual
transmission. Despite this coupe's simplicity, the gauge cluster is
quite informative. It has info for the fuel, water temperature, oil
pressure, and voltage. The two-tone beige and tan interweaves on
the seats, doors, and dash. It's quite stylish and it also makes
for a nice complement to the exterior color combo.
Open up the hood and the honesty of this classic coupe continues.
Chevrolet relied on the 235 cubic-inch motor for everything from
the Corvette to its pickup trucks. This Thriftmaster six-cylinder
motor provided reliable power and good torque to keep these chrome
machines cruising down the road. It shows nicely for this kind of
classic where the original style of the blue block meets a little
added flair of the oil bath air cleaner. It fires up like a
well-respected workhorse should and this Chevy feels eager to get
out on the road. For those who want to get the most out of this
engine, the three-speed manual transmission is the best choice to
have. This one is exceptionally smooth, and there's just a real
retro cool feeling about operating the three-on-the-tree column
This classic Bel Air captures a feeling you'd happily pay twice the
price to experience, and that's why we know it won't be with us
very long. Call today!!!
