1951 Chevrolet Bel Air Hardtop
This fabulous running, driving, and nicely detailed Chevy Bel Air came to us from a very knowledgeable collector. After the end of WWII the American auto makers turned their sites on what was to become a market with a desire for new automotive designs that would propel them into the latter half of the 20th Century that would see style and engineering take great bounds. When Chevy introduced its first total redesign since the 30s the fans went wild, and this fine 51 Bel Air hardtop is a superb example of the magic GM engineers brought to the table. Here's your chance to own a rock solid example of one of the most desirable of the early Bel Airs, at an alert investor value. You can enjoy this eye catching '51 Bel Air today for the fraction of what it would cost to build. Don't miss this high quality low production 65 year old classic!
