Here's a coupe no one will see coming, but they will also never forget. This 1953 Chevrolet Bel Air Sports Coupe is a fresh restomod with barely 2K miles on it. $80K was invested to customize every inch, from its polished small block, to the six-speed manual, to the custom A/C interior, to the Mercedes paint.

This is the perfect car to use as the base for a memorable restomod. They produced less of these pillarless BelAir Sport Coupe models as they did the standard two-door. It really complements the sleek roofline, and points the way for the sporty Impalas and Chevelles of the future. But even without the cool silhouette this coupe would still be a stunner. The ornamentation on the hood, trunk, and door handles could easily be shaved because the Mercedes-Benz Silver is a miles deep application that shines like clearcoat precious metal. That doesn't mean this car skips on the brightwork, but now items like the bumpers, window surrounds, and smiling toothy grille have a mirror-like appearance to keep up with the stellar paintwork. The custom elements even pay tribute to other Bel Airs such as the taillights from a '54 and the headlight buckets from the legendary Tri-Five years. The full package sits on large 18-inch Billet Specialties alloys that fill the wheel wells very well, and tell everyone that this custom is quick, too.

The cool red streak on the outer trim is a hint at what awaits when you open the door. From the moment you lay eyes on the interior, you realize just how much of a quality full custom built this truly is. Everyone gets a modern bucket seat for comfort. The deep red on this leather matches nicely with the center console, carpeting, headliner, dash, and custom side panels for an aggressive and uniform build that will wow them at car shows. But more than just for appearance, this was meant to be comfortable. That's why you have great features like an adjustable four wheel air ride suspension, power locks, cup holders, and an AM/FM/CD stereo with sat nav screen. And we know you'll love never needing to leave the driver's seat while the power windows take down all the side glass to show off the pillarless hardtop. And because there's air conditioning, you can do that all year and stay comfortable. This build was quite thoughtful, and you realize this the moment you grab the Billet Specialties steering wheel that has a similar pattern to the alloys outside. And ahead of that is Classic Instruments package that gives you all the info you need without altering the iconic dual cowl shape of the dash. And just in case these didn't completely convince you this is a driver's car, have you might want to count the gears on that Hurst shifter.

It's a good idea to grab your sunglasses before opening the hood, because we just about challenge you to find another component that could be polished. And this custom-built 350 cubic-inch small block is presented perfectly in a smooth engine bay with most of the wires and hoses expertly hidden. This V8 has plenty of power thanks to a Holley four-barrel carburetor and performance intake. And we can hear this power too, thanks to the rumble of the dual exhaust. Best of all, the Borg-Warner six-speed manual transmission gives you complete control over it all. But more than just power and glamour, this Chevy shows more evidence of a thoughtful build with elements like the aluminum radiator w/electric fan. So your restomod stays cool even when you're in traffic with the A/C running. On the road, the Mustang II independent front suspension, Fox coilover rear, and full air ride system provide a premium feeling. Plus, power steering, Wilwood front disc brakes, and Nitto performance tires at all four corners make this restomod feel as capable as a modern machine.

The sale comes with original '53 sales literature and the over $80K in receipts that it took to produce this high quality this custom creation. So now you know how special this Bel Air is, and since it's one-of-a-kind, you only have one opportunity to take it home. Call now!!
