Here's something you don't often come across too often anymore: a '50s classic with a high degree of originality that also remains a solid cruiser. This 1953 Chevrolet Bel Air sedan has a cool curvaceous style that loves to be authentic, right down to the accessories.
This car is something quite unique Saddle Brown and Sahara Beige two-tone is believed to be the original application. It has the kind of quality for those who love patina, and these days, that's a lot of us. In fact, this one seems to really split the difference between a barn find kind of style and a cool rat rod cruiser. After all, the top-of-the-line Bel Air added plenty more bright trim, and the place you first notice it on this coupe is on the roof. The full window surrounds and complete bright c-pillar makes for a terrific separating line for the two-tone. And you have the best cruiser features with the Bel Air's unique rear fender inserts, fender skirts, and full-length trim. In fact, the full brightwork package appears to be present which is quite impressive nearly 70 years later. But this one goes beyond the classic style with a lowered rear suspension and Oldsmobile-style hubcaps. So there's a lot of fun in the way this one is now, and there's plenty of potential for whatever personality you want to bring out.
The two-tone beige and brown continues inside. A sedan like this means four full doors and plenty of room to take others along for the ride. There is a high level of detail here with the classic steering wheel, correct gauges, complete dash, and grab rope for the rear passengers. Overall, it has the honest and worn look that's perfect for a rat rod, but the level of authentic details means this will have you hunting for far fewer components if doing an authentic restation. No matter how you choose to enjoy this classic, the classic Allstate swamp cooler from Sears that's hanging out the window is going to be a terrific talking point.
Chevrolet relied on the inline-six for its full lineup because it knew how to stand the test of time, and this one really likes to showcase that. The 216 cubic-inch motor is exceptionally honest in its presentation. And so it's going to be a lot of fun to show people how this aged powerhouse still loves to fire up and run. For those who want to get the most out of this engine, the three-speed manual transmission is the best choice to have, and there's just a real retro-cool feeling about operating the three-on-the-tree column shifter.
Here's a true survivor style presented on an upper-class classic Bel Air. If your classic car dreams include authenticity, then you know how irresistible this one is. Call today!!!
