Start talking classics and the second-generation Bel Air is almost
always directly referenced. Offered in trim levels ranging from
stripped economy champ to brassy boulevard bomber, Chevrolet
produced tri-fives that were capable of satisfying nearly every
buyer and every wallet. That legacy of universal appeal has
continued throughout the last 65 years, giving fans and aficionados
the parts and inspiration to create their own unique hot rods. Take
this alluring resto-mod for example. Backing 350 cubic inches of
fuel injected small block with a smooth 4-speed and modern
athletics, this tastefully modified Chevy turns a traditionally
appealing platform into a head-turning super star. Ready to hit the
streets in some choice Motor City metal? Check out this sweet
ROTISSERIE RED ROCK AND ROLL!
The beneficiary of a nut-and-bolt rotisserie restoration that was
completed over the course of five years, this slick Bel Air is an
excellent example of what happens when an enthusiast builds their
dream car! A series of solid body panels, stripped all the way to
bare during the build, displays great fit and excellent finish.
Professionally sprayed two-stage seals vivid pigment in a glossy,
wet-look shine. And the result is one very well done pavement
scorcher that'll drop jaws at whatever event it rocks!
At the front of the car's brilliant profile, a sculpted bumper
hangs a full set of guards beneath a polished grille, LED parking
lamps and traditional, stainless-trimmed headlights. At the top of
that grille, a bright Chevrolet crest leads a familiar Jetbird,
which looks great in front of tinted glass that's stacked under
polished frames, polished vent shades and polished RainGear wipers.
Ornate Speed Spears join classy "Bel Air" scripts to complement
small mirrors, guarded door handles and flowing rocker shields. And
at the back of the car, a second sculpted bumper hangs a full set
of guards beneath requisite corner Vs, LED taillights and a trick
Center High Mount Stop Lamp.
DECADES DIFFERENT SMALL BLOCK
If you think the exterior of this classic is impressive, you're
going to LOVE what's under its hood! Smooth, sorted and ready to
roll, the car's high performance LT1 is widely regarded as one of
the best small blocks ever produced. At the front of the handsome
mill, a polished March serpentine drive spins a painted water pump
between a polished alternator and a polished AC compressor.
Opposite that pump, an "K&N" branded air cleaner caps a
color-keyed Street & Performance throttle body. That
Lokar-controlled valve feeds a dressed factory intake, which feeds
aluminum heads and GM-spec internals. High-octane fossils come
courtesy of modern fuel injection. Spent gases roar through
factory-style manifolds. And cooling comes courtesy of a polished
Griffin radiator that's backed by a polished support, corrugated
hoses and large SPAL puller fans. Visually, not a detail was missed
under this Bel Air's billet-trimmed bonnet. Niceties like polished
breathers, polished fluid reservoirs, braided hoses and chromed
valve covers give the body-matched small block decidedly show
worthy aesthetics. And the car's custom inner fenders stretch a
smoothed firewall behind a polished latch, polished bolts, a
chromed brake booster and polished Eddie Motorsports hood
NOT WHAT IT SEEMS
Park this hardtop on a lift and you'll find solid, undercoated
floors that provide a body-matched backdrop for a roster of proven
components. A dressed 700R4 4-speed twists power to a
fourth-generation Corvette rear-clip, which is finished with a
color-keyed sway bar and spry AFCO Racing coil-overs. That clip
pushes a fourth-generation Corvette front-half that features a
second color-keyed sway bar and two more AFCO Racing coil-overs.
Quick turns come courtesy of modern power rack-and-pinion steering.
At the corners, red Wilwood calipers squeeze 20 pistons around big
drilled and slotted rotors. Charred dinosaurs float into aluminized
pipes, which bark through throaty, dual-chamber mufflers and
polished stainless tips. And torque transitions to pavement through
chromed Coys C5s, which wear 235/45R18 Toyo Proxes in front of
255/45ZR20 Toyo Proxes.
CUSTOMIZATION IS STANDARD
Climb inside this razor-sharp Chevrolet and you'll find a fully
custom interior that features dramatic style and great looking
trim. Embedding traditional cross-flags in crisp, two-tone leather,
the car's broad bench and bucket seats are straight up awesome! A
color-keyed dash fashions polished billet trim around cool Vintage
Air conditioning and tidy Dakota Digital VHX telemetry. Beneath
that ledge, a custom console floats an attractive combination of
wood and leather around a short Lokar shifter and modern audio.
Textured door panels front modern power windows at the sides of
leather floor mats, which float between trim Daytona Carpet and
billet foot pedals. A billet rearview mirror reflects a sculpted
headliner, which bends around polished bows. The driver spins a
wood-rimmed wheel around a polished, tilting column. And a
custom-upholstered trunk hides a polished fire extinguisher beneath
more cool cross-flags.
Combining great performance with crisp aesthetics and timeless
Motor City swagger, this impressive Chevy really puts the "class"
in classic. And best of all, being a second-generation Bel Air,
it'll always be one of the most in-demand collector cars on the
market. On the hunt for some no excuses metal that'll draw a crowd
wherever it goes? This tri-five is your kind of fun!
