Bel Air Restomod
UNREAL CUSTOM BUILD, TOP OF THE LINE RESTOMOD, 350 FI CRATE, MORRISON GT CHASSIS
You've already glanced at the price tag and figured out that this isn't your average 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air. No, this one is professionally built, incredibly detailed, and beautifully finished and probably cost another 50% more than the asking price to build. If you want the kind of car that wins big trophies, gets on the pages of magazines, and flat-out dominates local cruise nights, they don't come much cooler than this.
Most folks won't even get past the paint before they're speechless. The deep blue finish with intricate ghost flames looks simply spectacular, with the flames almost moving around as you walk around the car in the sunlight. Of course, that amazing paint is so impressive that you might miss the dozens of body mods that are under it, from the smoothed quarter panels to the shaved emblems to the removed vent windows. Bodywork is beyond impressive, with hardly a ripple or wave anywhere on the car and while it has been driven just over 1000 miles since it was completed, there are no signs of it anywhere. A cowl induction hood was added and that small change makes a big difference on the vintage '50s shape, adding an aggressive stance that it didn't have before. And the smooth grille, 1-piece bumpers, and modified taillights all help with the super slick look. Heck, even the gaps are tight enough to handle the Lexus ball bearing test.
The interior is fully customized as well, starting with comfortable buckets flanking a fabricated center console. The glove-soft leather and suede was wrapped around the power bucket seats, the rear bench, the door panels, and even the console itself, but it still has a distinct 1950s flair. Detailing is extremely impressive, with little stuff like a courtesy light on the back of the console and the original E-brake handle reminding us that there were professionals at work here. The dashboard itself is fairly stock, but the gauges are a custom insert designed to fit in the original housing and A/C vents have been artfully integrated into the design. There's also a massive entertainment system that includes a Sony AM/FM/CD/iPod head unit, Kicker amp, and speakers stashed throughout the interior. Other goodies include a tilt column and power windows, making this a no-compromises cruiser. They probably spent more finishing the trunk than many guys spend on their entire interiors, so be sure to show it off when you take this car to shows.
The entire chassis was swapped for an Art Morrison GT Sport chassis, which is anchored by a 350 cubic inch crate motor. Workmanship is outstanding and that Hilborn fuel injection system really makes a statement. There's a custom billet serpentine belt drive system, beautiful custom valve covers, smoothed firewall and inner fenders, and even the hoses for the radiator are custom polished stainless steel pieces. The chassis is fortified with Wilwood disc brakes at all four corners, stainless tubular A-arms, power rack-and-pinion steering, coil-over shocks, and a beautifully built dual exhaust system. The components are in like-new condition and the car runs and drives like a modern machine with superb handling and impressive ride quality. The lowered stance is just about perfect and those staggered Billet Specialties wheels carry 245/45/17 front and 275/40/18 rear Kumho performance radials.
This car is impressive in every way imaginable. Years of work and tens of thousands of dollars produced what is easily one of the very best Tri-Fives we've ever represented. Call today!
