But. as you'll see. the results are definitely worth the six-figures it required to finish this amazing hardtop. Wrapping 598 cubic inches of Dart V8 in silky aesthetics and completely custom mechanicals. this national award winning Bel Air possesses the kind of performance and style that literally defines 'one-of-a-kind'. Ready for a first class build that combines everything great about front row Goodguys kustoms with modern road rocket technology? Check out this killer bowtie bubble top!BODYWORK/TRIMSealed in Subaru's sophisticated Sunlight Gold Opal. this slick Chevrolet is the beneficiary of an extensive. ground-up restoration that was conducted by Street Metal Fabrication of Greenville. South Carolina. In addition to better-than-factory alignment. the car's body features super sinuous appeal thanks to fully shaved emblems. That body's combination of form. fit and flash is reinforced by high-gloss clear. which. during the finishing phase. was sanded to a mirror-like shine. And that world-class look is completed by custom striping that our production team likes to call "bray"; a pigment that displays a small hint of brown while maintaining just the right amount of gray to complement the car's custom leather interior. The greatest thing about building a massaged fifth generation Bel Air is: the subdued look most street rod enthusiasts strive for is pretty much standard factory fare. At the front of this fully sorted full-size. a shaved and chromed grille rides between chromed headlight buckets. modern H4 torches and a modified bumper. Above that grille. a factory hood leads the eye to a custom cowl that trades factory windshield wipers for functional breathing. Behind that hood. straight stainless trim shapes curved greenhouse glass. Below that trim. chrome side spears ride between shaved mirrors and traditional GM door handles. And at the back of those spears. modified taillights illuminate a custom. 1-piece bumper that's been professionally tucked and smoothed. ENGINEHoist this Chevy's sculpted hood and you'll find a positively massive V8 that's been skillfully wedged in a custom Sunlight Gold Opal engine compartment. Carefully assembled and professionally detailed. that brutal stoplight slayer utilizes a stroker crank. a flat tappet cam and Dart Engineering casing to transform 598 cubic inches of red hot combustion into 10 to 1 compression and 800 horsepower! A perfect amount of oxygen flows from a custom-fabricated cowl induction system to an 850cfm Quick Fuel Technology carburetor. That wind mixes with fuel in a coated intake and progresses to aluminum Pro-Filer heads that are built with flat tappet lifters and tough roller rocker arms. Immediately following combustion. which is sourced via an aftermarket distributor and familiar Taylor plug wires. spent gases roar through custom-fabricated headers. Charge comes courtesy of a satin-finished alternator that. like the car's satin AC compressor. spins on a high quality Vintage Air accessory drive. Cooling is provided by a big Griffin radiator that's backed by Flex-a-Lite puller fans and a proven Stewart water pump. And items like billet hood hinges. fabricated valve covers. a satin-finished fuel pump and trick dipsticks enhance subdued and classy aesthetics. DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSIONWe've said it time and time again. and the old adage still proves true. A pro-tourer simply isn't an authentic pro-tourer unless its significant power enhancements are augmented by significant chassis hardware. That's the only way 100% of the car's performance potential will ever be realized. This Bel Air's spry big block is. first and foremost. augmented by a custom-fabricated perimeter chassis that replaces GM's venerable X-frame. At the center of that chassis. a fresh Tremec 5-speed makes good use of a hydraulic clutch. When that clutch grabs. a fresh driveshaft twists a narrowed Moser rear end. which seats an Eaton posi-traction differential between RideTech coil-over-shocks. Turns come courtesy of modern power steering. which seats an AGR gearbox between Bilstein coil-over-shocks. Smooth and solid stops are provided by multi-piston Wilwood calipers. which squeeze four drilled and slotted rotors. Spent gases flow in to custom pipes and throaty Flowmaster mufflers. Power meets the pavement through polished Schott wheels. which spin 225/45R19 Goodyear Eagle RS-As in front of 275/45R20 Goodyear Eagle GTIIs. And everything from this Chevy's custom oil pan to its Sunlight Gold Opal floors is expertly finished. superbly detailed and ready for action. INTERIORBehind the car's lightweight doors. it's all Paul Atkins. Custom leather seats. which wear metallic piping over polished buttons. are configured in a typical bench and bucket layout. From the driver's perch. a Paul Atkins dash hangs an impressive array of Classic Instruments All American gauges above billet foot pedals. pushbutton ignition and Vintage Air climate control. Beneath that dash. fibrous carpet frames a custom console that anchors a simple chrome shifter behind iPod-compatible Clarion audio. Opposite that console. leather side panels center billet door and window handles between large kick speakers and custom metal trim. In front of the driver. a 2-tone steering wheel spins around a convenient. tilting column. And behind the passengers. a custom package tray hangs over a fully upholstered trunk that features ample storage and display space.
