Chevrolet Bel Air 454 V8 1962

General description : SLICK PAINT/NEW INTERIOR, 454 V8, 4-SPEED, PWR 4-WHEEL-DISC/STEER, A+ RESTO!!!

Few cars command as much attention as this 1962 Chevrolet Bel Air bubbletop conversion. The proportions are spot on, the roof looks like it was pilfered from George Jetson, and when they're dropped they sit as well as anything ever built. Beautifully restored, a built 454 under the hood, a four speed in the tunnel, and an awesome stance set this car apart even further.
You'll never go wrong with a well-done Bel Air, and this charcoal gray hardtop is fantastic. The reflection is a mile deep and the looooong sides are very straight. The paint is a few years old but holds up under scrutiny with only a few marks from being driven', because, after all, that's what this sucker was built to do. Even though it's not the top-of-the-line Impala, there's a ton of bright work here, including the stainless trim around the greenhouse, long side spears, and trunk garnish moldings that really dress it up, and all if it was recently restored to a very high standard. This car just glitters. Bumpers are stock, though with their anodized aluminum inserts they looked custom when brand new. Heck, they even resisted the urge to stick a pair of antennas on the rear deck, perhaps hoping to keep the Bel Air's somewhat sleeper vibe.
On first glance it's easy to see that everything inside the gorgeous red interior is new. Your second glance impresses you with the execution: From carpet to headliner you won't find much to complain about. Sit down and realize that the upholstery is very much the way it was back in 1962, with beautiful stitching a shiny button inserts on the seat backs. The stock steering column and wheel are really the only way to go here, and it includes performance goodies like auxiliary gauges under the dash and that all-important 4-speed shifter with cue ball knob. There's also a period under-dash A/C unit that's complete, although it needs to be serviced. Like the exterior trim, the center console's chrome was recently re-plated and likely looks better than new today. The carpet is new, done up with a proper heel pad and you'll note this is a radio delete car, suggesting that someone was taking their performance seriously. The massive trunk is correctly finished with a full mat set, plus a full-sized spare up on its own shelf.
The visual appeal of a big block V8 simply can't be overstated. This 454 is no junkyard special, either: this one was built to run and it does so with genuine authority. It's got a few modern touches, including the serpentine accessory drive and modern accessories, but nobody will complain about the increased reliability. There's a big 4-barrel carburetor on top of the Edelbrock manifold and the A/C uses modern hardware and has been converted to use R134a refrigerant. It cackles and snarls through a fresh dual exhaust system with mellow-sounding mufflers and it's been fitted with 4-wheel disc brakes, a nice upgrade that looks great through the spokes of the oversized wheels. The chassis is ultra-clean and sanitary, but not so perfect that you're afraid to drive it, and the only other modification is a set of lowering springs that give this Chevy its wicked stance. Oversized chrome Torque Thrust wheels carry fresh 225/40/18 performance radials.
We see a lot of great cars, and this one's a favorite of a bunch of guys around here. The looks, the engine and the sound make this Bel Air car show royalty, so call before it's gone!

About Chevrolet
Chevrolet aka Chevy, founded in 1911 by Louis Chevrolet and William C. Durant is the best selling and biggest brand by General Motors -mainly due to low pricing.

No wonder Chevy the "working man's car" has become such an iconic part of Americana in films and pop-culture.

When talking about Chevy one must not ignore Chevrolet small-block V8 the world's most produced engine that has been in production since 1955 and still going strong.

Surprisingly, "America's only sports car" Corvette was introduced under Chevrolet brand rather than its own. To us the most memorable Corvette has to be The second generation (C2) Corvette, Sting Ray.

To compete with VW Beatle Chevrolet introduced Corvair a compact automobile built in 1960–1969 It was the only American designed, mass-produced passenger car to feature a rear-mounted air-cooled engine. Corvair handling was deemed notoriously bad mainly due to Ralph Nader's Unsafe at Any Speed. Although, any handling issues were soon solved the reputation did stick.

With Pony / Muscle car mania taking over the Americans, following the introduction of Ford Mustang, Chevrolet came up with one of its most famous models Camaro. During the first year alone they managed to sell 220,906 Camaros.
