1962 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 Pro Touring
We could have just been impressed by the amazing two-tone paint, full custom interior, or the supercharged 5.7-liter V8, but with all of it and more combined, we know this 1962 Chevrolet Bel Air is the ultimate custom ride. And it's not just our opinion. This is a Chevy Classics magazine cover car and national award winner.You're looking at 100% factory sheet metal, and no expense was spared in taking this pristine coupe to the ultimate level. It took nearly two years and over $150K to get a classic Chevy to look this good, but it was absolutely worth it. Metallic green and gloss black are always a fantastic combination because it makes a car look like chocolate mint candy. The paint has so much shine it rivals the chrome. Just look at the side panels in our showroom light, some of the trim pieces get lost because the black and green have mirror finishes that radiate just as bright! That's what makes this attractive from across a show field, but as people get closer, the expensive details are what take home the awards. Notice the green dipping along the headlights so it can run across the top bumper panel. In the rear the green kisses the bumper with a fading finishing line. This is all the mark of an artist. In fact, the dividing line pinstripe is even applied in the door jambs! We could go on about the paint, but don't forget to check out all the brightwork. All the stock pieces are complete, and they have a shine worthy of this top-dollar restoration. But the most attractive piece of brightwork are the Coys chrome wheels. The staggered size gives the larger rear ones an aggressive look as they tuck in under the fender.The moment you step inside you can tell this is a very thoughtful custom build. The two-tone color scheme is repeated, but with an interesting twist. Within the black leather seats and door panels are green inserts with the kind of pattern that would come from the factory on a '60s Bel Air a very cool connection to this coupe's lineage that's missing in many other restomods. But from the moment you sit down in the buckets, you know this is a modern ride. It starts with the chrome three-spoke steering wheel with carbon fiber-style grip. Beyond that is a full set of Omega gauges, including a very handy tach. But a custom like this is meant to be enjoyed by family and friends, and so they can stay comfortable with an AM/FM/CD/AUX stereo and ice-cold air conditioning.We know you already skipped ahead to the motor pics, and we don't blame you. That's a 5.7-liter LS6 V8 with a supercharger added for the ultimate power trip there's only about 4K miles on this whole build. Right now the motor makes 500 horsepower, but it can be dialed up to a whopping 620 hp! And you've got the right components to back up the boost in power, including an aluminum radiator with electric fan, custom driveshaft, and performance 9-inch rear end built by Moser Engineering. It even has 35-spline axles and a 4.11 Positraction rear end for reliable power take-offs. The engine bay is stunning with all the metallic mint green on the fender walls, chrome components, and the custom valve covers in the perfect two-tone. That would be enough to win awards on its own, but take a look at the undercarriage shots. The car is a true total package with the engine block, transmission, and driveshaft in green, too! You might think this custom coupe is too nice to take out on the road, but you'll be rewarded if you do thanks to features such as the four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, power steering, and Wilwood disc brakes up front.There's a ton more to list (upgraded suspension, performance side exhaust, etc.) but we have just simply run out of space. Give us a call, and we'll be happy to go through the huge binder on this custom build. You will not find a better '60s full-size Chevy restomod out there than this. Period. Call today!!!
