2 Door Sedan
Vintage Chevy aficionados . . . take a look! With its exterior dressed in a deep, distinctive shade and looking refreshed from head to toe, this 1965 Chevrolet Bel Air 2 Door Sedan is one vital looking classic. It combines its genuine appearance with big block power under the hood and a road ready running condition that's hard to find in a car of its era.
Bel Airs were in frequent transformation during their early years, but by the time this '65 rolled out as a member of the model's sixth generation, they were well established as a favorite among muscle car enthusiasts who enjoyed the spacious cabin and smooth ride of a full size cruiser. The dark green paint it wears is a great take on the color - it's much deeper than you normally see and really looks sharp in person - and the collection of exterior fittings on display are all looking very clean, from the grille perched between the pair of twin headlights up front, to the tips of the chrome exhaust tips peeking out just the right amount in back. The body panel alignment looks to be very much on point - Bel Airs of this era featured trim that literally extended from front to back, and the trim here looks straight as a table as it runs from front fender to door to rear quarter panel. There's also new badging on all four sides, so this vintage Chevy really cuts a strong appearance.
Whether by very attentive care or some well-planned freshening up over the years, the green interior remains in its factory configuration and really looks strong. The bench seating in both front and back features a tuck and roll pattern on vinyl covers that show no marked creasing as they sit over plenty of comfort padding. The Bel Air's generous proportions translate into plenty of interior room, so your backseat passengers can really stretch out and get comfortable, while the white-balled shifter within easy reach of the front seat serves as a reminder that this Chevy is very much about vintage performance as well. The sizable original steering wheel sits on a tilt column and the dash area just in front of it looks very clean- the gauges are all clear and functional and its black steel surfaces remain nice and smooth. The spacious trunk area in back looks to be in solid shape as well.
Climb behind the wheel and you'll have plenty of power at your disposal via the strong big block underneath the hood. Originally sporting 396 cubic inches of displacement, it's been bored out to add a few more and features both a 4-barrel Holley carb and an Edelbrock intake to up its performance game.
An HEI ignition has also been added to provide the spark to take maximum advantage of all that power. The engine has been dressed up with a chrome air cleaner and valve covers, while the stock exhaust manifolds remain in place to provide a nice, deep note out of the tailpipes. The enhanced 396 pairs with a 4 speed manual transmission to put maximum control in the driver's hands. This iconic cruiser patrols the asphalt on a set of 15” steel wheels with Chevy branded hubcaps that are wrapped with Cooper Cobra tires.
This 1965 Chevrolet Bel Air 2 Door Sedan is a great representative of its model and, with its “ready to roll” condition would be quite a score for the classic enthusiast eager to get the good times on the boulevard started right away. Call today!
