Description

Lot #161 - This Bel Air has had a nut-and-bolt, frame-off restoration. The Post 2-door is very rare, as most were used for stock car racing and very few survived. This one has been repainted to its rare factory color of Seamist Turquoise. The interior has been restored to its original condition and color of Dark Turquoise. Under the hood is an upgraded 350 V8 with aluminum intake and a 4-barrel carburetor along with stock exhaust manifolds and a nice dual exhaust. This Bel Air features power steering, power brakes, and updated air conditioning system with the correct inside vents and an upgraded turbo 350 3-speed transmission. The appearance has been enhanced with custom deep dish chrome wheels and TA radial raised white letter tires. This is a must-see car, as the underneath is as shiny and clean as the top.
