The 1960 Chevrolet Bel Air two-door sedan has some unique styling elements that always keep it in demand. Plus, this one has a touch of street machine fun, right down to the triple deuce set up on the big block V8. And you even get to enjoy it all from the comfort of an A/C interior.
The '60 Chevys came back with some updated styling, and headlights on the front end were now the shining star. That's why these were upgraded to crystal clear units. The black paint gives this one a sporty look, and that's furthered by the upgraded Boss wheels with 18/20 inch front/rear stagger that delivers an aggressive stance. These cars were true jet-age cool with the afterburner-inspired taillights and tailfins so large that they created one of the most impressive trunk designs ever. And we know you love the fighter jet style trim that rockets up the side and leaves a bold white wake on top of the black paint. Your overall impression of this car should be clean, complete, and ready for driving. That means it doesn't have all the nervous details you get on a show car, but at the same time, you also get a ton of long stares wherever this Chevy passes. Extra detail work will certainly upgrade its status, and that's always fun, but there's also something nice about how this is already a quality car that you can hop in on a whim.
And getting in is part of the fun of this car. The interior has a true custom cruiser setup with a bold red as the foundation for the carpeting, seats, dash, and side panels. But the real start is how it's joined by a classic tuck and roll insert on the two rows of bench seats and door panels. The result is a true vintage boulevard machine feeling. This has all the best classic pieces, like the artful steering wheel with its thin grip, the full round gauge panel that looks absolutely sporty, and even the AM radio is still there for display. There is one modern upgrade that you don't see, but you will certainly feel. Cold-blowing R134a air conditioning is a great treat to make sure you feel cool while looking cool behind the wheel.
The 1960 Chevrolet was during the dawn of the big block era for Chevy cars. The 348 cubic-inch V8 was the top dog of its era, and so it was the one you wanted if you enjoyed the Saturday night blacktop. And this one has been prepared correctly for that with Offenhauser finned valve covers and matching air grabbers that signal you have a triple set of dual-barrel carburetors. But while that's great for a classic appearance, this one was built for enjoyment in today's world. That's why there was a solid investment rebuilding the motor in 2020, and they even added an aluminum radiator w/electric fan to help keep the full package cool. So it's a strong runner, and features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide modern tires make it easy to enjoy.
This is the classic that looks distinctive and feels great out on the road. That makes for the ideal cruiser you want to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
