1953 CHEVROLET BEL AIR SPORT COUPE C-826 This 1953 Chevrolet Bel Air sport coupe was in the previous owners extended family for more than 12 years. It has undergone a body-off refurbishment that was completed in 2018 and saw the car refinished in beige with a brown hardtop over a beige and brown vinyl interior. Power is provided by a 235ci valve-in-head inline-six mated to a column-shifted three-speed manual transmission, and equipment includes an exterior sun visor, a heater/defroster, a push-button AM radio, and a stem-wound clock. The hardtop body has been refinished in beige with a brown roof and features an exterior sun visor, fender skirts, and quarter-panel spear trim moldings with painted accents. Brightwork includes a three-tooth grille, bumpers with overriders, rocker and body-side moldings, gravel guards, window surrounds, and headlight/taillight trim. Color-keyed 15 inch steel wheels are fitted with full chrome covers and BFGoodrich Silvertown whitewall tires. Braking is provided by 11 inch hydraulic drums all around. The interior features a center-fold bench front seat reupholstered in beige vinyl with brown-checked cloth inserts, color-coordinated two-tone door panels, brown carpets, and exposed chrome headliner bows. The factory two-spoke steering wheel features a full horn ring and fronts a two-tone body-color steel dashboard with a round 110-mph speedometer and horizontal gauges for temperature, fuel level, battery charge, and oil pressure. Decorative chrome grilles adorn the ashtray, speaker, and glovebox. Amenities include a dash-mounted rearview mirror, a heater/defroster, a push-button AM radio, and a stem-wound clock. The five-digit odometer shows just under 46k miles. The 235ci Thrift-King inline-six came equipped with a Rochester B one-barrel carburetor and was rated at 108 horsepower and 200 lb-ft of torque when new. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a column-shifted three-speed manual transmission with an unsynchronized first gear. ***If you are viewing this on Facebook Marketplace, be sure go to our website to view all photos.
