SOLD 1954 CHEVROLET BEL-AIR 2 DOOR HARDTOP SOLD
If you are not a car guy this is not a car for you, look elsewhere. That
said, if youre into custom non stock cars and you always wanted flame
throwers then take a look. Chevy 383 engine Edelbrock intake and 4 BC carb.
Dual Exhaust with headers and flame
throwers. 700 R transmission. Custom front end. GM power front disc brakes.
Custom smooth fire wall. Thermostat controlled cruise fan. 16 gal gas tank
in the trunk. Battery is mounted in the trunk. Wolf whistle. Siren to warn
people when youre ready to do the flame throwers. I have the written
instructions on how to use them. Check out the photos to read the
instructions. In addition to the flame throwers he added a fuel injection
system and a distributor to fire the 6 spark plugs to throw massive flames.
He recommends getting rid of the gas injection system as it is not safe.
He tells about Exhaust extensions but
they have been lost. They where about 2 long. New paint. Tilt column and
custom steering wheel. Custom white pleated interior. Dolphin gauges.
Chrome looks very good. The underside is rusty looking but solid. I did
find one spot of rust. I have a lot of receipts back to 2000. This car is
set up like a pro street car so you will not find a radio, heater or
wipers. I like the way the Bel Air runs and drives. Ive had it on the
freeway and around city streets and its great. I love the sound of the Exhaust. You have to watch the video so
you can hear it too. Cond. # 3.
1954 Chevy Bel Air hardtop
I thought it was high time to pay respects to a well restored vehicle so
common on American highways in the 50's. This Bel Air had a touch of
glamor with its two tone paint job, hardtop styling with bows in the
headliner, and the ever popular two speed Powerglide automatic
transmission. I can still hear Dinah Shore sing "See the USA in your
Chevrolet"! Unusual in this car is the automatic headlight dimming
device..usually reserved for the upper line GM cars.

If you're looking for some hot 50s metal that's a bit different from all
those run-of-the-mill tri-fives, this awesome Chevy is an incredible car at
a price that simply can't be beat!
Both modern and classy at the same time, this slick '54 sports coupe is
proof that Chevrolet's decision to take a curvaceous fuselage, weld it to a
sweeping roofline and decorate it with an ample amount of chrome was an
excellent idea. Unlike most exaggerated 50s designs the car's proportions
are spot-on, there's appropriate use of trim, and the subtle rear fins that
would eventually grow to controversial wings are fully integrated into
attractive, sculpted arcs. Judging by a quick glance at its profile, the
car was an extremely solid piece when its high quality rotisserie
restoration started. But nevertheless, its body was stripped to bare metal
and virtually perfected in a high quality build which even included an
over-restored undercarriage. In February of 2008, that smooth fuselage and
straight undercarriage were covered in a thick coat of subdued and classy
Copper Cranberry Glasurit and buffed to a wet-look shine.
Much of the money spent during this Chevy's recent revitalization centered
on its performance and reliability. Lift the hood and you'll find a proven
350 cubic inch Summit crate motor which looks good and, with 330 horsepower, runs great! Air
and fuel are supplied by a polished breather, which seals around a reusable
filter element, and a big Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor that's fed by an
Edelbrock inline fuel filter and operated by a Lokar throttle cable. A
perfect mixture of elements is sourced through a high performance aluminum
intake and modern center bolt heads which are capped by polished valve
covers. Fires are ignited by fresh plug wires which are connected to an MSD
billet distributor, an MSD Blaster II coil and new Ron Francis wiring via
polished looms. Heat is suppressed by a heavy duty radiator that's equipped
with a small electric pusher fan, a giant electric puller fan and a
polished overflow tank. And spent gases are jettisoned through a slick set
of ceramic coated Sanderson block hugger headers.
Behind the torque rich small block, you'll find a new Gearstar 4L60E
4-speed automatic transmission and a traditional GM 10 bolt rear end which
accelerate smoothly and feel very contemporary. At the front of the
chassis, the car's traditional 'knee-action' suspension has been replaced
with a body-matched Walton Engineering set up that employs tubular control
arms and swaps traditional manual steering for an easy twisting power rack
and pinion system. At the back of the chassis, familiar leaf springs ensure
enough strength and reliability to counter all the small block's twist. And
at the corners of the chassis, fresh stainless lines shuttle fluid from the
afore mentioned brake Booster to
modern, GM-style calipers and rotors. The motor beats a killer soundtrack
through a 2.5 inch true dual Exhaust
system which features great sounding polished Magnaflow mufflers. And power
flows to the pavement through a sweet set of Coys wheels which spin
225/40/18 front and 255/35/20 rear Exclaim UHP radials around chrome
spinners and gunmetal gray spokes.
One of this Chevy's most noteworthy features is its great looking Fawn
interior. Completely custom from its power leather seats and sculpted door
panels to its fresh carpets and Champagne door frames, this supple cockpit
looks almost as good as it feels. At the front of the car a chrome trimmed
dash holds white faced Auto Meter gauges, which are complete with a billet
instrument panel, above a correct radio delete and controls for the modern
heat and air conditioning. At the base of the firm seats, carpeted floor
mats ride between a custom leather console and chrome foot pedals. And in
front of the driver, a polished Ididit tilt steering column spins a Billet
Specialties half-wrap steering wheel around a chrome shifter, an attractive
chrome gear indicator and a full set of billet stalks.
With a high quality restoration that's beyond reproach and a color
combination that makes it a complete knockout at shows, THIS is the kind of
build you simply can't touch for our asking price. Call, click or visit
