This is a quality classic with a bit of sleeper attitude. After all, this 1962 Chevrolet Bel Air has a great-looking dual-quad V8, four-on-the-floor, and plenty of exhaust growl whenever you want it.
This is the car that defined a generation. The '62 not only told the world the tailfin was dead, but it also signaled that angular style was the new direction. There's even a terrific crease in the profile that looks like an arrow always pointing the car forward. So it already has some .....
forward-thinking speedy style. Plus, the push-bar mount in front, faux hood pins, and competition-style American Racing Torq Thrust wheels add to the performance look. But all of it is relatively subtle, because you can see they also made an investment in a quality classic all around. The Ermine White paint has a nice shine from a proper investment, the panels line up nicely, and the doors close with authority. And the details are crisp, right down to the gold rings at the base of each taillight.
A red interior always looks great against white, but this one is a cut-above. You have nice carpeting, a clean dash, and even the original AM radio is still on display. Plus, the seating looks terrific with a bold red with textured cloth inserts on both rows. The details are even great, like how the tri-color insignia trim on the seat back matches the door panels. And while this looks cool, you also know it's a great driver machine. The dual spoke steering wheel gives you a clear view to the gauge panel that includes well-integrated AutoMerter readouts. And the addition of the large Mallory tach goes nicely with the Hurst floor shifter.
Under the hood is where this one earns its vintage street machine attitude. After all, the Chevy big blocks were the ones everyone wanted on a Saturday night back in the day, and this 348 cubic-inch V8 is truly dressed for vintage performance with its finned Offenhauser valve covers looking so nice in the tidy engine bay. Plus, the two air elements on top are a sure sign of the two Edelbrock four-barrel carburetors underneath. Not only does this V8 inhale deeply from the dual-quad setup, but also it exhales with authority as headers add even more power while contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. And for this times you really want to bring the thunder, the manual cut out plates will give you a sound others will fear. Plus, no matter if you're taking the quarter mile or just boulevard cruising, the versatility of the four-speed manual transmission is always welcomed.
This Bel Air has great details, right down to the red accents on the suspension. It all makes for a very cool big block classic cruiser that you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
