This 1954 Chevrolet Bel Air Sport Coupe is a classic hardtop that keeps its classic inline-six power. But it's true classic style is far from the full story. The cool two-tone and bright wheels have some street machine appeal, and there are plenty of pieces to back it up. This has been upgraded with an overdrive transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, and cool old-school power upgrades. The result is a truly distinctive hardtop cruiser.

The original generation Bel Air launched a revolution that defined the 1950s. The special roof looks like a convertible with its hardtop in place. It really complements the sleek roofline, and that points the way for the sporty Impalas and Chevelles of the future. You can see it quite well on this example because the creamy white roof stands out nicely from the glossy black paint on the body. And of course, like any good 1950s American cruiser, there's plenty of chrome. This Bel Air has brightwork surrounding every piece of glass, running down the side, outlining the rear fender, surrounding every exterior light, and smiling with a big grille. And the upgraded 15-inch Cragar SS wheels and polished dual exhaust tips go with the brightwork package while also announcing there's some added performance in this one.

The pillarless hardtop lets people get a good view inside, and so it's great to have such a well-coordinated black and white presentation. They paid attention to giving you an authentic classic two-tone style on the door panels, dash, and seats with textured cloth inserts. It's attractive, right down to details like the working heater and dome lights. The steering wheel, gauges, and gearshift are all part of the authentic driving feeling, but once you get this out on the road, you'll realize this Bel Air is extra special.

The engine bay has a distinct and bright style that's worth showcasing. So while the 235 cubic-inch inline-six is the right specs for this car, you also know it's something far from stock. You have upgrades like dual carburetors, a Fenton intake, and split Fenton exhaust manifolds for a true dual exhaust. It all gives you some extra pep to this hardy powerhouse. It's not the kind of power that feels like someone dropped in a big block, but instead, it gives you a very cool feeling like you were able to work on dad's coupe back in '54. It's not just the upgraded motor that makes this one so appealing. It's built to be a terrific all-around driver. That's why you have upgrades like electric power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive.

This is the unique Bel Air hardtop that's built for fun trips near or far. So if you're looking to cruise something distinct, call today!
