1962 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210
What you're looking at is opportunity. This 1962 Chevrolet Bel Air wagon is your chance to have one classic that can carry the family and materials in one vintage vehicle. And since this wagon has been upgraded with everything, including a slick custom exterior, a comfy A/C interior, tricked out Ride Tech air ride suspension, and plenty of power out of the original V8, this is the one classic that your practical and passionate sides can agree on.
Turning grocery-getters into go-fact machines is an art. The best way erase the suburban blues is by investing in a slick presentation. This two-tone metallic teal and India Ivory takes Chevy's period-correct colors and gives them a fantastic clearcoat shine. But more than just color, the canvas has to be at its best, so there was plenty invested in making the sheetmetal look great. These super straight panels mean the full-length trim looks like an uninterrupted line down the Bel Air's body. And custom touches like the shaved door handles really make this a sleet station wagon. Only adding to the mystique are the mirror-like chrome bumpers, power bulge cowl hood, and a set of large 20-inch Coys alloys. And if that wasn't impressive enough, you can watch people's jaws drop as you drop the air ride suspension to the ground.
Inside, the exterior teal returns, and now it's joined by a comfortable beige tweed. This is presented on all rows of seating, including the reverse-facing third row. That's a great piece we wish we could still get in wagons today, because after all, any noisy kid is facing the other direction. But the seat that really matters the most is the driver's seat. That's where you're in control of all the upgrades like the AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input and the cold R134a air conditioning. Your right hand fits perfectly over Hurst shifter, the left one grabs the leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel, and you gaze at the full AutoMeter gauge package. These all tell your senses that there's something special in the engine bay even before you twist the key and hear it roar.
Under the hood is the original 283 cubic-inch V8, but you can also tell there was a ton invested to get it looking clean and running mean. The bold orange block radiates power, and we love the look of all the polished components like the valve covers, air topper, alternator, master cylinder, and so much more. But more than just look award-worthy, you know this is a thoughtful build with upgrades like the newer pulleys, and an aluminum radiator so you can be in traffic with the A/C running. Plus, this V8 inhales deeply with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and exhales with authority out of the header-fed dual exhaust. Best of all, you are in complete control of the V8 power and its rumbling soundtrack thanks to the Borg Warner T10 four-speed manual transmission. Also, take some time to look at the undercarriage photos. The clean presentation here shows you that this custom build has traveled less than 6,800 miles since completion, and all of those were done carefully. Plus, you'll also spot the Ride Tech air ride suspension with digital four corner control for optimum performance and comfort. Add in rack & pinion power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and grippy modern ZR-rated tires, and you have a stellar total driving package.
This is the perfect classic. After all, you'll convince everyone that you bought a versatile family vehicle with plenty of cargo space. But really it's the slick style, V8 power, and enhanced suspension that sold you. Since you're not the only one who would like to disguise a dream car as a practical classic, you should hurry and call today!
