Ride in 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air
This is my 59 Bel Air. I am the second owner, and have owned the car since
March 1978. I paid $75.00 for it, with 58,000 miles at that time. It is
still mostly original, other than it has been repainted, by me, in 1984.
Dashboard still has the factory original paint and gauges. Everything on
the car works great.
Options are, clock, deluxe heater, two speed electric wipers, AM
radio,Tissue Dispenser, parking brake alarm...blinking red light in very
beginning of video... EZI glass...tinted, rocker moldings, vent shades and
license plate pocket guard...gas filler is behind license plate.
The engine is a 348 cid 250 hp turbo
Thrust V-8, that has never been overhauled. It has a 4-Jet Rochester carb.
The power steering is driven off the rear of the generator...yes it has a
DC generator....not a AC alternator with diodes to change the AC to DC
current. Power brakes are Boosted by
factory Bendix Booster. Trans is a 3
speed manual and axle ratio is 3.36 to1.
Driving it from Michigan to Georgia it got 18 mpg and used no oil.

Old Race Car First Start - 1968 Pontiac Lemans Stock Car Lives Again!
I picked up this old roundyround race car from a buddies wrecking yard. It
was cheap, my parents are pissed it's in the back yard, nothing is new.
Norm Brill was the driver, I have no idea who he is so I'm going to assume
he went out in a blaze of glory having a shootout with the cops while
drunk, naked and high on PCP, leaving his race car in the weeds lost to
It's a 1968 Pontiac Lemans, the same body as the GTO and Tempest from what
I understand. The engine is either a 400 or a 350 V8, it had air
conditioning and power steering, possibly a limited slip rear differential
but I haven't had a chance to check. The carburetor is a 2 throat unit.
It pained me to see it crushed and sent to China like the Nova stock car
that was beside it, so I saved it, and now ya'll can enjoy it! Sorry the
audio isn't better, it sounds really good in person because the mufflers
fell off but it's more than my phone's microphone can handle. The engine
sounds very tight and any smoke is likely from the nasty gas I filtered and
ran through it.
I also show the old lettering on the car, but it's only because it's neat.
I'm not a race driver and have no sponsorship from the names listed, if
they are even in business any more I'd be surprised.
It's just a cool ol' muscle car!
Edit: Man this is taking a while to upload. The bent fan and nerfed crank
pulley happened when it was moved at the wrecking yard before I got it. I
can fix the pulley, but the fan is toast. It'll be replaced before it takes
out the water pump. The radiator is junk, it's leaking and I have a large
1ton truck radiator I'll put in it's place, possibly with an electric fan,
maybe mounted in the trunk and ducted. I'd sorta like to get fenderwell
headers for it like the ratrod has. Will have to look around at the
swapmeet....man...this is slow...I like Reddit? Ya'll like reddit? It's
neat. Yup...Ooh, I should post this to carporn or something. Oh man, almost
done...go...go little bar, you can do it! Oh to heck with it, I'mna go get
Edit 2: Aw man, it went backwards...was at 100, then went to 95...god, now
I just feel like a girl writing in her diary about stupid stuff. Like, oh
my gawd becky, did you SEE the percentages on that video? I kno rite? Oh, I
know, hey you should check out huskystarcraft if you like video games,
starcraft II Wings of Liberty in particular. That Husky guy is pretty cool,
the music videos are rad. I may have a straw hat and smell like narsty
gasoline and durt but I'm a nerd at heart and I still play with cars! Oh
hey it's done I think...neat.

132788 / 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/c4c3gsj
This Larkspur Blue '57 Bel Air ragtop is the ideal car for someone who
prefers to drive his hardware on the road instead of onto the backs of
trailers. Tastefully and carefully modified to improve its on-road
performance, none of its original good looks or authentic 1950s flavor has
been diluted. Starting with arrow-straight sheetmetal that has been
restored to show condition, this is an extremely nice Bel Air. Code 795
Larkspur Blue was selected and applied in two-stage urethane, giving it a
stunning shine and a depth that even the best paints of 1957 couldn't hope
to achieve. But then again, what's the point of a '57 Chevy if it isn't an
eyeball magnet? It's simply gorgeous in person.
Doing the chrome and stainless on a '57 can require a liquid-cooled credit
card, but fortunately someone else already spent the long dollar restoring
the trim on this Bel Air. All the stainless, including the rocker panels
and sweepspear trim along the sides has been polished to look like chrome,
and shows no signs of age.
The Power Pack equipped 283 under the hood is the right motor for a Bel Air
you're going to drive. It's also detailed so that it looks as authentic as
possible given the modern touches. You'll appreciate the Chevy Orange
paint, the 'Chevrolet' script on the valve covers and the correct air
cleaner atop a modern 4-barrel carburetor with electric choke. Then there's
the modern alternator, which does a far better job than the original
generator especially now that the power steering pump is a separate unit.
You'll also note a modern dual master cylinder with compact Booster, which feeds power front disc brakes,
ensuring that this Bel Air is not only stylish, but safe as well.
In place of the original 2-speed PowerGlide transmission, there's an
updated TH350 3-speed automatic, which makes the most of the small block's
power and makes it considerably snappier around town, as well as the
original rear end full of 3.55 gears. A fresh dual Exhaust system gives this Bel Air a nice growl
under acceleration and new shocks all around make for a smooth ride. The
original wheels and spinner hubcaps wear a set of fresh wide whitewall
The Bel Air stands apart from other 1957 offerings with its stunning
two-tone blue interior. Using light blue vinyl and textured dark blue
fabric inserts, it creates a dramatic driver's compartment that's both
functional and stylish. The AM radio uses a rear-mount antenna and works as
it should, and the steering wheel has been restored to match the
upholstery. Overhead, a new white vinyl power top folds easily and stashes
beneath a matching blue boot. In back, the trunk offers a correct rubber
mat, matching full-sized spare, and a complete jack assembly.
So if your enjoyment of a great old car involves getting behind the wheel
and heading down the road, this is the perfect Bel Air to accompany you.
The updates are nearly invisible but greatly enhance the road-worthiness of
the car, and are easy to reverse if you suddenly decide that concours
competition is where you'd like to go. In the meantime, it's a gorgeous,
high-quality car that will be a hit anywhere it goes and bring a smile to
the face of everyone who sees it. Visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for
1958 Chevrolet Bel Air Restoration Video 4. Engine Start and MORE!
In this video we finally got the engine to turn over without spilling its
guts all over the driveway. After that we installed the new gas tank,
sending unit, and got the engine to run on gas from the gas tank. We then
installed the radiator fan and shroud, checked all the fluids and took it
for a drive. The brakes worked but once we got off the incline of my
driveway, the car would not move forward. A coupe quarts of ATF and we were
off on the first drive since 1971!!!!
