Lot #933.1 1953 CHEVROLET BEL AIR CUSTOM 2 DOOR POST
Lot #933.1 - This gorgeous 1953 Chevy 2 door post deserves a closer look to appreciate the quality of this build. An original rust-free car was used to start this project, so the body has all the original panels. The exceptional black paint is laser-straight. The body retains all of the original lines and has beautiful factory stainless trim, chrome bumpers and grille. The 1953 taillights were replaced with 1954 Chevy taillights. The underside of the car is as impressive as the top. The original frame was smoothed and painted. A custom built Scott independent front suspension and a 4-bar rear with a slightly narrowed Chevy 10-bolt rear end were used to give the car a stable and dependable set up. Air Ride Technologies Shock Waves handle to adjustable ride height, so you can lay the body down over the 18" and 20" Billet Specialties Bonneville wheels. The engine compartment is as highly detailed as the rest of the car. It features a 350 Chevy with Corvette style finned valve covers that is mated to a 700R transmission. The custom leather interior was stitched by the legendary Ron Mangus Shop. The stunning dash retains the stock chrome and stainless moldings. It is complimented with a 15" vintage style steering wheel. Other features include a custom stereo, heat and air conditioning, power steering and disc brakes. The elegant look and exceptional detail make this truly an eye popping 1953 Chevy. This Goodguys award winner is equally suited for showing and enjoying on the road. Award not included.
