For Sale: 1953 Chevrolet Bel Air in Palmetto, Florida

Vehicle Description

Please visit for additional photos, information, and a video.. Check out this stunning 1953 Chevy Bel Air 2-door hardtop with a great color combination and killer stance.

Under the hood sits a very nicely detailed and mildly built Chevrolet 235 Inline 6-cylinder engine. It has been topped off with a finned Offenhauser valve cover and Offenhauser intake with dual single barrel carburetors. Those carbs feed the upgraded intake to provide a bit more pep in this Bel Air's step. A finned valve cover continues the cool classic styling under the hood. Touches of chrome under the engine will make you proud to show this classic at your local car show. The engine codes date to 1953, so this very well could be the original engine! That engine is paired with a 3-speed manual, which is exactly how you remember it in 1953! It retains the factory 6-volt system with generator, in keeping with the stock nature of the car.

This is a true 1953 Chevrolet Bel Air painted with Black and White high gloss paint, paired with chrome dog dish wheels and wide white walls tires that makes this a head turner! The interior is all original and still retains the thick plastic seat covers keeping the upholstery in great shape.

This Bel Air has been part of a private collection for years, and has been garage kept. This car is kept almost completely original aside from the small engine upgrades. It is getting harder and harder to find original, stock Bel Airs as so many have become restomods, show cars, lowriders, and gassers. Finding a solid, complete, running and driving stock example of a REAL 1953 Chevrolet Bel Air is getting tough to do. So, we are very proud to offer this car for sale to a sure to be proud new owner. It has a clean and clear Florida title and cruises out very nicely!
