You can instantly tell this 1954 Chevrolet Bel Air is a fun custom build. But with its very affordable price what you might not expect is it to come are all the great upgrades – from the bucket seat interior to the gleaming small block V8 under the hood.
The slick modern red instantly draws attention, but this classic has much more to offer. Everyone wants a Bel Air because the top-of-the-line Chevy added plenty more bright trim, and the place you first notice it on this coupe is on the roof. The full window surrounds and complete bright c-pillar makes the top almost look like it's floating in chrome. But more than just the top, this American classic is swimming in mirror-like trim. This Bel Air not only has the iconic pieces like the wraparound bumpers and jet-inspired hood ornament, but it also gets all the details right, too. It correctly has brightwork running the full length of the side, outlining the lower rear fenders, surrounding every exterior light, and smiling with a shiny toothy grille. But as much as this a complete and shining classic American, those modern 18/20-inch staggered Coys alloys are a big hint that this one has been given plenty of upgrades.
Open the door to a fully upgraded interior. It starts with the bucket seats that have modern bolstering to be vastly more comfortable than anything that came out of the '50s. The gray cloth with darker gray piping sets the tone for the whole interior. It coordinates with the rear seats, carpeting, headliner, custom side panels, and even the trunk. This gives it a full uniform appearance that signifies a thoughtful build. But more than just look good, this was built to drive. When you grab the Grant GT sports steering wheel in your left hand, and the Lokar shifter with your right one, it immediately let's your enthusiast brain know there's something special under the hood.
You're going to love showing off the engine bay. The tidy setup and black painted fender walls creates the perfect canvas for this motor. After all, with the bright ribbed valve covers, matching air topper, and all the other polished components, this V8 looks like its radiating power. And more than just look powerful, the 350 cubic-inch motor has been enhanced with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and a set of headers that add more horsepower as they feed the rumbling dual exhaust. This one is also meant to be a reliable cruiser, too. That's why the crate motor fires up quickly, and you even have a large aluminum radiator to keep everything cool. Plus, power steering, front disc brakes, and the grip of modern performance tires makes this Bel Air quite a nice anytime driving machine.
Equal part show and go, this is the classic Chevy coupe that has been given all the right investments. That's why it's so amazing that this turn-key package is so affordable. So don't miss out, call today!
