When 1963 arrive the days of the famous Tri-Five BelAirs was behind
us but this line of cars continued to be produced and very popular.
This really clean 1963 belongs to the 5th generation which received
an entirely new body. Although the wheelbase remained the same as
the previous generation the length was reduced and a lot of the
styling changed to what would become the look associated with the
60's. This very nice BelAir is a well built car that has received a
body on restoration. The body is in great shape and painted a very
nice White with a slick finish. We have sold quite a few Chevy's of
this vintage over the years and the White/Red combo is always a
popular choice. All of the chrome and stainless on the car is in
excellent shape and cleanly mounted in place. The glass is all good
as well and is tinted. These years received the dual headlights and
dual taillights which are all working properly. The car has a
slight rake and rides on the Grey American Torq Thrust wheels for a
nice old school touch. It has 15"x8" wheels in back with P235/72R15
Kumho Solus tires and in front are 15"x7" wheels with P215/75R15
All of the mechanical components in the car have been entirely
restored with only 1,000 miles on the engine and transmission. The
motor is a Chevy Performance Turn Key Crate 350/330hp that runs
great. It has been dressed up with Chevrolet chrome valve covers
and a chrome air cleaner. Everything under the hood is cleanly done
with nice paint, clean mounts, and clean routing of
wires/hoses/etc. The car has a really nice sound with a 2 1/4"
exhaust system by Kinny's that dumps right before the rear bumper.
The car is kept cool with a 4 core aluminum radiator and a custom
radiator core support filler panel was added to add to the clean
look under the hood. The car runs out really well and has a 500
series power steering box as well as disk brakes with a dual master
cylinder. The front and rear suspension system has been entirely
rebuilt and in back it has tubular trailing arms. The transmission
is a 350 automatic that transfers power back to the 10 bolt rear
end with 3:55 gears.
The interior is all fresh but was done in the stock style except
for a few exceptions. It has bench seats in front/rear with chrome
and red lap belts. The dash is all in good shape and features
Dakota VHX gauges. A Vintage AC/Heat unit was also installed and
all painted to match the rest so although it is an aftermarket
system has a more stock appearance. Below the central AC vents an
AM/FM/CD player was installed which deliver sound through Dual rear
speakers in the package tray. In a nod to its ancestors this 63
also sports a 1957 Chevy steering wheel which is a very clever
touch. The trunk of the car is all solid and offers storage space
while still having plenty of room for a spare.
This is a very clean and well built example of one of these 60's
BelAirs so if it fits your style you are not going to want to pass
