Performance suspension, 4 wheel disc, 3.73 posi!

This clean grocery getter Bel Air has some serious performance upgrades. The motor is built, has upgraded trans and rear. Suspension is custom, disc brakes at all four wheels and the exhaust is made by hand. It is a runner!

EXTERIOR: Claimed to be all original body panels. It is straight as an arrow, the body gaps are precise. Everything fits square and flush, you can close the doors with your pinky. Repainted only one time back to it's original color. The metal flake is laid out nicely, it has a glossy clear coat finish. There's a couple minor imperfections if you look for them. Overall the grill, trim, moldings, bumpers, bow tie mirrors are good. The stainless trim around the windows is polished. Custom bowtie taillights. Door jambs are real nice, actually I think they are original paint. The weather strips and window seals were replaced. New 15 inch steel rims from Wheel Vintiques painted body color with poverty caps and Good Year tires.

We acquired this car from a "409 guy". He also races one. The car is done right, drive it anywhere!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
