This rare and exceptionally well-done 1960 Bel Air was painstakingly
crafted into a highly detailed show car during a thorough three year, 110K
Looking both modern and classy at the same time, this awesome 1960 Bel Air
is proof that Chevrolet's decision to cut back on the chrome and focus on
streamlining their models was an excellent idea. The proportions are
spot-on, there's appropriate use of trim, but it's not excessive, and the
fins that everyone hated in 1959 (and love today) have been sculpted into
to a better integrated design. Its body was walnut shelled to bare metal
and then completely perfected in a concours quality build that even
includes GM factory bolts. In late 2009, when everything was fully sorted
and the project was close to completion, its straight and smooth panels
were covered in GM's subdued and classy Suntan Copper paint.
Because GM didn't stamp partial VINs on their blocks until the mid to late
60s, it's exceptionally hard to prove an early 100% numbers matching
Chevrolet. That said, this Bel Air does in fact have a date code correct
big block 348 motor that has been restored to all of its original glory. As
the top powerplant for the 1960 Bel Air, the turbo Thrust 348 utilized a cast iron block,
tubular steel pushrods, steel rocker arms, a side oiling lubrication
system, crowned pistons and cylinder based combustion to create a Kansas
flat torque curve. This particular 348 has been upfitted with Chevrolets
slick Super turbo Thrust tri-power
system that sends gas through three 2 barrel carburetors and ramps power up
to an impressive 280 horses. Below those carburetors, the engine and very
distinctive bowtie branded valve covers wear a thick coat of traditional
Chevrolet orange, and at the sides of the block, correct rust free Exhaust manifolds make quick work of spent
gases. In their effort to provide this car with a concours restoration, the
builders equipped it with all the right details including a correctly
decaled reproduction radiator that sends water through reproduction GM
hoses with correct tower clamps, a correct reproduction Delco generator and
even a correct reproduction Delco battery.
Behind that torque rich big block motor you'll find a proven and reliable
Borg Warner T10 4-speed transmission. GM didn't stamp partial VINs on early
60s transmissions, so it's almost impossible to prove a true numbers
matching car; but, as with this Bel Airs 348 powerplant, its T10
transmission is indeed a date code correct piece. During the extensive
restoration, the cars body was removed from its frame and both the frame
and original suspension were rebuilt and completely powder coated. Inside
that frame, a brand new reproduction factory Exhaust system with correct front mounted
mufflers still features original decals on its silver tail pipes and has a
deep heavy sounding tone. Above the frame, super clean Suntan Copper floors
are straight and rust free, and at the corners of the frame you'll find
completely rebuilt drum brakes. Power flows through 14 inch steel wheels
that wear vintage looking 8.50-14 BF Goodrich Silvertown tires.
One of this car's most noteworthy features is its cool new tan and copper
interior. Completely restored from the seats and door panels to the fresh
carpets it looks great and feels fresh. At the front of the car, a killer
body matched dash holds rebuilt instrumentation, radio and heater deletes,
and a body matched steering wheel with a chrome horn ring. At the base of
the firm bench seats new carpeted floor mats sit on either side of a chrome
floor mounted 4-speed shifter with a white cue ball. Above the seats a new
copper headliner holds new tan trimmed sun visors, and at the sides of the
seats, new door panels are decorated with new stainless trim, new chrome
handles and new arm rests. The trunk reminds us of how big full-size cars
really were, and features some very well-fitted houndstooth mats below a
correct decal, spare tire and jack.
With a high quality restoration that is beyond reproach, and a color
combination that makes it a complete knockout at shows, this 1960 Bel Air
is the kind of build that you can't touch for our asking price.
