If you're searching for a sizzling custom that features the absolute best
of everything, you've found your next classic!
While this hardtop's body received plenty of attention, that work was
specifically aimed at creating the most perfect surface possible. And the
result is panels that are amazingly flat, displaying nary a ripple or wave
anywhere. As expected, those straight panels ensure fit and finish that's
significantly above '50s factory fodder. A glossy coat of Torch Red
two-stage lends the car a sporty demeanor that most pastels simply can't
match. And naturally, that vivid pigment has been sanded, buffed and
polished to a spectacular shine that'll equal any classic on any AACA show
Hoist this custom's shaved hood you'll find a 355 cubic inch, show-detailed
V8 that mixes great sounds with excellent horsepower. At the top of
that glare-inducing mill, a chrome air cleaner mixes wind from a reusable
filter element with high octane fossils that are juiced through a braided
fuel line and small Autogage pressure meter. Below that cleaner, a
chrome-capped carburetor funnels a perfect air/fuel mixture into a big
chrome intake that's flanked by chromed and stylized valve covers. Behind
those valve covers, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor sequences spark through
loomed Taylor plug wires. Cooling is provided by a painted Griffin radiator
that's equipped with a polished tank, a bowtie-branded cap and two
quick-spinning puller fans. Charging comes courtesy of a Billet Specialties
V-Trac system, which spins a chrome alternator and polished AC compressor
above attractive billet pulleys. And spent gases travel from a clean pair
of coated shorty headers to large, aluminized Exhaust pipes.
Combining adjustable QA1 shocks with pocketed rear springs, this hardtop's
boxed and smoothed chassis provides a comfortable, durable ride that's
spiced by improved handling. At the center of that Satin Black skeleton, a
proven GM turbo-Hydramatic 350 sends
torque to a stout rear end that spins an open differential around friendly,
3.42 gears. At the front of that proven drivetrain, aesthetically pleasing
power steering utilizes a Classic Performance Products gearbox to make
quick work of tight spots and sharp turns. At the corners of the car,
large, body-matched calipers, which milk fluid from a chrome brake Booster, squeeze drilled and slotted rotors
to supply short, fade-free stops. And all this mechanical goodness rolls on
stunning Billet Specialties Legends, which spin aggressive 225/45ZR18 Nitto
NT555 Extreme ZRs in front of 275/35ZR20 Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs.
This Bel Air's streamlined cockpit HAS to be one of the coolest interiors
we've ever seen. Power front and fixed rear buckets don soft leather hides
that display no significant wear. Between those seats, a contoured,
full-length console hides LED courtesy lamps under Vintage Air climate
controls, chrome power window switches and a modern JVC head unit. Above
that console, a painted dash hangs clean Classic Instruments gauges over
polished trim and leather-wrapped air conditioning hardware. And in front
of the driver, a polished and bowtie-branded steering wheel spins a
half-wrapped rim around a chrome, tilting column.
If you're dreaming of the perfect blend of lavish 50s style and modern,
reliable performance, you've found the ultimate classic! Call, click or
