After three model years as a coupe styled like a convertible, Chevrolet's Bel-Air landed atop the model range for 1953. We are pleased to present this beautifully restored 1954 Bel-Air two-door sedan, which was made in GM's Los Angeles, California factory (VIN code L).
This Bel-Air is dressed in it's correct to the tag Shoreline Beige over Bermuda Green (code 554) exterior, the car's paint and trim are in excellent condition and is a very handsome color! The bodywork is straight, including the external sun visor, the engine bay is extremely tidy, the battery looks new, the cargo area is lined in white with a black floor mat and the spare tire wears a matching cover and there's even a matching wheel cover back there for the extra tire. The car's chrome bumpers shine brilliantly in the light.
This top-of-the-line mid-50s Bowtie rolls on Coker Classic wide whitewall tires, size 215/75R15 at all four corners. Each tire is mounted on a steel wheel topped by a factory wheel cover. The tires and wheels are all in very good condition.
Under the hood is Chevrolet's 235 CID straight six-cylinder engine, often nicknamed “The Blue Flame.” It has received a few mild upgrades, such as a performance Davis Unified Ignition distributor and a Fenton split exhaust system that ends in dual pipes out back. This motor is bolted to a three-speed manual transmission.
Inside, the car sports a brilliant, fresh white and green color scheme, replacing the original green cloth and vinyl interior (code 311). The greet and white bench seats look fantastic, the contrasting dark green carpeting is in excellent order, as is the white headliner. The Bermuda Green metal instrument panel offers a bit of contrast to the green of the seats and the carpet but the amp gauge is inoperable. The inner door panels' condition echoes that of the rest of the interior. There's a column-mounted shift lever for the “three-on-the-tree” manual and a modern Kenwood AM/FM stereo with CD player has been put in over the standard factory AM radio.
