Chevrolet Bel Air 1959

Allmän beskrivning : Chevrolet has long been considered a 'working man's brand'. The interesting thing is, despite those humble origins, Chevy consistently peddles enough content-laden trucks to also be considered one of the best-selling luxury marques in the world. No doubt, a big part of the firm's upscale appeal comes from the Corvette. From 1950s optimism to 21st century moxie, the Chevrolet Corvette has always represented everything aspirational about the automotive experience. Of course, another part of that appeal is the franchise's long history of creating many of the world's most iconic vehicles. And that unique axiom is exactly where you'll find this stellar Bel Air custom: self-assuredly rumbling at the crossroads of timeless style and world-class athleticism. Timeless, of course, because it's one of the best years of Bel Air that's been lovingly massaged through a detailed, ground-up restoration. And a world-class stoplight slayer because, during that restoration, it was fitted with six liters of fiery Chevy small block! Ready to see why the bowtie brand is affectionately called USA-1?
(NOT SO) BASIC APPEAL
The product of a detailed, ground-up restoration that's absolutely exquisite both inside and out, this bold Bel Air pro-tourer does an excellent job of wrapping enduring style around modern technology. An all-American cherry that was ripe for customization, the car was subjected to a systematic, no-expense-spared build that culminated in glossy black two-stage. And today, this sweet Chevy prowls the scene as a lights-out custom that mixes classic good looks with world-beating performance!
Rolling proof that more doesn't necessarily mean better, this sedan turns virtually every head it passes by simply doing what it does best: being one of the finest Bel Airs on the planet. No heavy add-ons or overwrought fabrication, just classic proportions and tasteful aesthetics. Up front, a broad bumper traces a clean, Chevrolet-branded grille, which points halogen headlights between factory parking lamps and a bold 'C H E V R O L E T' header script. At the sides of that lettering, shaved fenders lead polished bowtie mirrors, which reflect polished handles, polished fins and polished quarter spears. A flowing greenhouse wraps polished stainless around polished wipers. And at the back of the car, a bright valance centers stylish, Bel Air-exclusive taillights between a second broad bumper and an ornate trunk emblem.
(NOT SO) FAMILIAR POWER
What good is all that show if you can't back it up with a little go? Lift this Chevy's long hood and you'll reveal a solid six liters of proven LS small block that was sourced directly from the pros at Mast Motorsports! At the top of the cast iron mill, a remote filter element feeds a muted tube that's married to an electronic throttle body and a dressed intake. Aluminum, L92-style heads, likely borrowed from an LS3, tilt custom coil covers over GM-spec wires and long-tube headers. Charge comes courtesy of a satin-finish alternator, which joins a satin-finish compressor and a satin-finish water pump behind a billet serpentine drive. Cooling is provided by a big aluminum radiator, which is paired with twined SPAL puller fans. And the car's Satin Black engine bay is decked with niceties like trick sticks, a billet master cylinder, strategically bent lines and braided hoses.
(NOT SO) PREDICTABLE RIDE
Not surprisingly, the bottom of this show worthy bowtie continues the theme of pairing proven hardware with enhanced technology. Satin floors create a picturesque frame for a full Roadster Shop perimeter chassis. That chassis is especially appealing, finished with tubular control arms and adjustable AFCO coil-overs. Behind the awesome engine, a cooled 4L60 4-speed, sporting a trick pan, spins a familiar Ford 9-inch. Turns come courtesy of power rack-and-pinion steering. Speed gets scrubbed by a quartet of drilled and slotted rotors, which pierce sixth-generation Corvette calipers. A custom fuel tank supplies a steady stream of 'go juice'. Coated exhaust feeds throaty MagnaFlow mufflers. And all that hardware rolls on a sweet set of Schott blades, which spin 245/40ZR19 Michelin Pilot Sports in front of 275/40ZR20 Michelin Pilot Sports.
(NOT SO) SUBTLE LUXURY
Swivel this classic's doors and you'll find a tasteful custom cockpit that combines timeless Chevrolet style with premium touchpoints and modern technology. Big bench seats weave intricate cloth accents into plush Ultraleather hides. A color-keyed dash founds glowing Dakota Digital VHX telemetry over billet accessory knobs and controls for the car's modern air conditioning. A custom console centers a short Lokar shifter between remote controlled Sony audio and fade-free carpet. Custom side panels front smooth power windows. The driver spins a snazzy billet steering wheel around a tilting column and billet foot pedals. And naturally, the passengers stow essentials in a custom-upholstered trunk.
Owning a lights-out classic is cool. Owning a lights-out classic that's been tastefully customized is something few are lucky enough to experience. Owning a tastefully customized, lights-out classic that's propelled by one of the hottest powerplants ever created is the stuff most gearheads dream about. Don't miss your chance to enjoy this incredible Bel Air!

om Chevrolet
Chevrolet aka Chevy, som grundades år 1911 av Louis Chevrolet och William C. Durant är den bäst säljande och största varumärke av General Motors -mainly grund av låga priser.

Inte undra på Chevy "arbets mannens bil" har blivit en sådan ikonisk del av Americana i filmer och pop-kultur.

När man talar om Chevy man får inte bortse från Chevrolet small-block V8 världens mest producerade motor som har varit i produktion sedan 1955 och still going strong.

Överraskande, "Amerikas enda sportbil" Corvette infördes i Chevrolet varumärke snarare än sina egna. För oss mest minnesvärda Corvette måste vara Den andra generationen (C2) Corvette, Sting Ray.

Att konkurrera med VW Beatle Chevrolet introducerade Corvair en kompakt bil byggd 1960-1969 Det var det enda amerikanska utformade, massproducerade personbil som har en bakmonterad luftkyld motor. Corvair hantering ansågs notoriskt dåligt främst på grund av Ralph Nader s Osäkert vid varje hastighet. Även om var eventuella hanteringsfrågor snart löst rykte gjorde pinnen.

Med Ponny / Muscle bil mani tar över amerikanerna, efter införandet av Ford Mustang, Chevrolet kom upp med en av sina mest kända modeller Camaro. Under det första året lyckades de sälja 220.906 Camaros.
