With its classy aesthetics and hot 283/4-speed drivetrain, this clean Bel Air is the kind of well-done cruiser that perpetuates vintage appeal. If you’re in the market for some fully sorted metal that’s good on the street and impressive at the show, you’ve found your next head turner! In 2010, the car’s solid body, which had previously benefitted from fresh floors and new quarters, was separated from its now completely restored frame. In 2011, a correct coat of Onyx Black 2-stage highlighted new glass and vibrant trim. And today, this Chevy rolls as one fantastic bowtie that pretty much creates a 1-car parade wherever it goes! In the late ’50s, Chevrolet’s 283 cubic inch Super Turbo Fire V8 was a common choice for factory GM performance. With an advertised 220 horsepower, it’s an impressive piece even in today’s world of 300 horsepower grocery getters. And when optioned with an aluminum intake and two Carter 4-barrels, like this drop-top’s “EB” stamped mill, it hit the pavement 270 horses strong! Behind that engine, a ’60s-era Borg Warner twists torque to a correct, posi-traction rear end that’s fitted with moderate, 3.42 gears. A manual steering rack provides vintage turning characteristics. Confident stops come courtesy of manual drum brakes. And power meets the pavement thanks to 14-inch steelies, which spin old-fashioned 8.00-14 BF Goodrich Silvertown whitewalls around ornate spinner hubcaps. With its hot drivetrain, quality restoration and desirable aesthetics, THIS is the kind of classic that, when properly maintained, can create serious equity.
