DESCRIPTION

This is a high-quality classic with a ton of sleeper attitude. After all, this 1962 Chevrolet Bel Air has a great-looking dual-quad big block, four-on-the-floor, and plenty of exhaust growl whenever you want it. But the comprehensive restoration also made sure this one had pure classic style, right down to the tartan patent on the turquoise seats.



This is the car that defined a generation. The '62 not only told the world the tailfin was dead, but it also signaled that angular style was the new direction. There's even a terrific crease in the profile that looks like an arrow always pointing the car forward. And since this is a car that's so significant, this example was given a multi-year frame-off restoration that concluded in 2015 (and only about 175 miles have been put on it since.) We have the receipt file detailing the six-figure investment, but all you really have to do is see how the Ermine White paint glows in the sunshine to see the quality of the workmanship. The panels line up nicely, the doors close with authority, and the details are crisp - right down to the Kelsey Hayes wheels with factory wheel covers. And when making the right investments, you know the brightwork goes to the top of the list. That's why the bumpers have a mirror-like shine, and the side trim looks almost uninterrupted as it zooms up the full length of the car. So while this one is fun for its big power under the hood, the total appeal of this classic is that it has an award-worthy style over every inch.



A turquoise interior always looks great in a 1960s classic, but this one is a cut above. You have nice carpeting, a clean dash, and even the dome light is working. It feels like a fresh and clean time capsule, right down to the tartan cloth inserts on both rows of seats. The details are even great, like how the tri-color insignia trim on the seat back matches the door panels. And while this looks cool, you also know it's a great driver's machine. The dual-spoke steering wheel gives you a clear view to the gauge panel that includes the column-mounted horizontal tach. And upgrade like the SW gauges and floor shifter signal that you'll love what's under the hood.



The engine bay continues this car's impressive stock style. In fact, if it wasn't for the newer battery, you'd almost swear you were picking this one up from the Chevy dealer in the winter of '61 (after all, you'd want to be one of the first to have the hots '62s.) This 444 stroked cubic-inch V8 is truly dressed for vintage performance with its clean big block valve covers and big air grabber. And you'll love lifting out the air cleaner assembly at the car shows just so you can show off the dual four-barrel carburetors underneath. It fires up readily and makes a terrific tune out of the dual exhaust. But don't just listen to these pipes; follow the path in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see how truly comprehensive the restoration was, right down to tags, and how clean it all remains today. Plus, no matter if you're taking the quarter-mile or just cruising to the car show, the versatility of the four-speed manual transmission is always welcomed.



This Bel Air has great details from every angle. It all makes for an award-worthy big block classic cruiser that you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
