1963 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 Restomod
We could tell you about the full size custom luxury that this 1963 Chevrolet Bel Air restomod offers, but you're already memorized by the paint. We don't even have to mention the custom A/C interior, enhanced suspension, frame-off restoration, or the performance big block V8 under the hood before you're ready to give us a call on this custom vintage hardtop. Let's start with the most obvious part of this car, the spectacular paintwork. The color is called Arrival Blue Metallic, and you can tell there was a serious investment in shine. It results in people marveling at how deep the bold color looks up close. Another reason why the paint is so captivating is because of the canvas used to display it. There has been a lot of time invested in getting these panels butter smooth and then making sure there is a uniform gap fit that is held to tighter standards than even Chevy had. In fact, this coupe really pays attention to the details. The brightwork is a great example, not only do the bumpers shine like mirrors, but so do the door handles and all the trim. Plus, it has a sporty personality thanks to features like the original beltline molding. And this is turned up a notch with all the upgrades like the side exhaust tips, LED taillights, and Foose wheels with an aggressive 17/18-inch front/rear stagger. Yes, this is truly a car that will impress at the shows. Open the door to a full custom interior. The front buckets were borrowed from a modern Cadillac, so you know they are all-day comfortable. They were re-covered in a custom gray leather with matching suede inserts, and they power adjust to your perfect position. So these are the kind of seats you'd want in a new car. The rear seats, door panels, headliner, carpeting, and even the steering wheel all coordinate to create the kind of uniform package you'll be proud to display. But more than show off, this is a true comfortable cruiser. You have an armrest center console that also houses the air ride digital controls, Lokar shifter, cup holders and the controls for the R134a air conditioning. Plus, the door panels have power window controls, and the classic machine-turned lower dash panel now houses a modern AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input and Bluetooth. But the piece we love the most is the upper dash. It's finished in the same ultra-smooth blue as the exterior, and it's the perfect place for upgraded cool blue glow of the full Dakota Digital dash Ã¢â‚¬â€œ creating a presentation that's equal parts artful and performance. The engine bay could win awards all on its own. The level of smoothness on the painted fender walls surpasses some other people's exterior paint. And we dare you to find another component that can be polished on the V8. But don't let all this style distract you from the substance. There's less than 2,400 miles on this restoration, and the 454 cubic-inch V8 was rebuilt for serious performance with a large Holley 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock aluminum intake, aluminum heads, and Comp Cams 480 camshaft. Plus, the Hedman Headers that add even more power as they contribute to the rumble of the 2.5-inch dual exhaust. And while this is a true performance machine, the total build proves it was quite thoughtful. For example, you have a versatile 3.55 rear end with Positraction, and a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive. There's even a large Be Cool aluminum radiator w/electric fans to keep this mean machine running cool even when you're in traffic with the A/C pumping. That's what makes it such a great all-around classic. You see more evidence of this in the undercarriage photos. You'll spot great features like the tubular A-arm front suspension w/adjustable coilovers, the upgraded air bag rear suspension, power steering, and four-wheel slotted & vented disc brakes. And the full painted underbody over the clean X-frame chassis is another reminder of the quality that comes from a frame-off restoration. Complete with build receipts and restoration photos, this is the kind of custom build that will have you placing a mirror under the car at shows. So when you're ready for the best of everything, call today!
