Description

Lot #1259.2 - Custom Bel Air with rare Ram Jet ZL1 427/550hp aluminum engine, 5-speed automatic transmission, Kugal rear end, Morrison chassis, all leather interior, all original body panels with no rust or prior damage, power windows, power door locks, power trunk release and power retractable frame license plate hidden for show. Less than 200 miles on car since its four year, $300,000 restoration. The car has received numerous awards. This 1957 custom Bel Air was built ground-up as a no-expense-spared rolling sculpture with no detail left to the wayside. This car is at home on any road or in any museum. Powered by the last built, #200 of 200, extremely rare Ram Jet ZL1 427/550hp all aluminum engine. The car is a rocket on the road. This extreme, one-of-a-kind car's restoration has been documented since day one, the new owner will appreciate the attention to detail. The interior is full custom leather with special seats and includes a custom stereo with additional battery feeding the stereo system. The paint is 3-stage paint with a one-of-a-kind color that will never be found anywhere. The ZL1 is a completely aluminum engine, 427cid, stroked to 454cid. It is the last one built out of only 200 manufactured by Chevrolet, very rare. The engine was shipped to Street & Performance, where it was completely taken apart and chromed. Winner at the Grand National Roadster Show.
