Description
Lot #1459 - Iconic American classic with today's technology. A complete frame-off, rotisserie restoration completed in December 2015. It was built with a brand-new Chevy Performance 430hp LS3, mated to 4L65E transmission, sitting atop an Art Morrison chassis, RideTech adjustable coilover suspension. The motor, transmission and chassis have all been painted in the beautiful Sierra Gold, the same color as the body that was stripped completely down to metal and resprayed in this show-quality color. All of the stainless is brand-new. The firewall was smoothed and painted as well. The hardware on the Art Morrison chassis is chromed and just adds to the detail on this amazing build. Custom 20" deluxe whitewall wheels were designed to look like a 15" wheel with whitewall tires. The wheel has an actual lip to simulate the whitewall, while still being able to run low-profile tires. Also included are a set of 18" and 20" Intro billet wheels. Each set really changes the appearance and attitude of the car. The Continental kit, fender skirts and dual antennas finish off the highly-optioned but factory look on this brand-new Resto-Mod. Underneath the Bel Air, all is brand-new as well. RideTech suspension, 6-piston front and 4-piston rear Wilwood power disc brakes with stainless brake lines, Strange rear end and upgraded front and rear sway bars. This car will run and drive better than most brand-new cars with a look of the Tri-Five that cannot be rivaled by today's vehicles. No expense was spared.
