For Sale: 1951 Chevrolet Bel Air in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

A unique classic that has been given all the right custom touches is exactly what you get with this 1951 Chevrolet Bel Air. So over the custom bodywork, vibrant paint, awesome A/C interior, upgraded suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, overdrive transmission, and upgraded V8 power. Oh yes, this custom hardtop is loaded with everything!


From the moment you lay eyes on this one you can tell it's an interesting custom build. But before we dive into the investments that make it quite unique, let's remember why this is such a great classic to begin with. This was one of the first years for the top-of-the-line Bel Air model. Chevrolet produced less than half as many of these pillarless hardtop models as they did the standard two-door. It complements the sleek roofline, and it points the way for the sporty Impalas and Chevelles of the future. And showing off this distinct and well-done sheet metal is a lively shade of purple with a nice pearl glow. In fact, the glossy style lets the light roll off the custom elements of this body like the clutter-free hood and trunk as well as the frenched headlights. Of course, what will really be having you look at the front end is the full ghost flame treatment. Plus, the full pinstriping, side faux lake pipes, rear fender skirts, wraparound chrome bumpers, and custom grille all make for an awesome total package. This is an older build, and so you'll see some signs of this and responsible use. But a car you can cruise is exactly what a custom like this does best. It makes for the kind of Chevy that will let you live out your American Graffiti fantasy.


Open the door and you are greeted by a stunning interior. It has been fully customized by building on the classic design elements of the original while integrating modern comfort and convenience to the mix. The seats set the color theme with the bright white with exterior-matching purple inserts. The door panels, dash, headliner, and custom center console all follow this two-tone. Even the trunk is beautifully done in purple. It really is a detail lover's classic right down to the flames in the door panels and two-tone steering wheel. So you'll happily roll down all the windows on this hardtop and share the fully-coordinated style with the world. This has the best in modern comfort with an AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth (with hands-free function), cup holders, and cold-blowing air conditioning. Plus, front bucket seats, a tilt steering column, power steering, and a full set of Classic Instruments gauges make for a great upgraded driver's package in this 1950s coupe.


There are more great upgrades under the hood. The Bel Air name would be associated with Chevy small block power, but not for a few more years. This one skips ahead past the Tri Fives with a 350 cubic-inch crate V8. It has a nice style with the air grabber and valve covers painted in an exterior-matching purple. But what we really like is the added substance of this motor. It includes upgrades like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock Performer hi-rise intake, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan to help keep it all running cool. This one is all about an easy cruising attitude. So you have great upgrades you don't often find elsewhere like the Mustang II-style independent front end, four-wheel power disc brakes, and a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive.


Complete with maintenance records, this is a total package classic that's turn-key ready to turn heads right now. It's the true cruiser you've always wanted. Call today!!!
