    1962 Chevy BelAir

    1962 Chevy Belair

    I bought the car back in 2000 and have spent a number of years renovating it and turning it into my dream lowrider, I'm on the lookout for another project as it has been complete for about 3 years. The car was featured in ACW and has picked up awards at the NSRA SuperNATS as well as Wheels day and other local shows.

    Free road tax, 12 months MOT

    Essentially most of the car is either new or refurbished, but details can be found below:

    Looking for £12.5k Ovno, would consider a project chevy truck as px (something like the one Kapri just sold! doh!

    Pics below:








    350 Goodwrench fitted in 2001 with chrome dress up parts, Edelbrock 600cfm 4bbl, edlebrock cam covers, chrome alternator.

    TH350 trans refurbed 2001, sliding prop, Refurbed axle with new Moser h/shafts

    Front disk conversion (power) and new rear brakes

    Suspension: lowered on 4 pump Showtime hydraulics kit (all polished and chrome) with 8 x trojan 1000CCA batteries in boot (all chassis strengthed and battery racks tied to chassis not body)

    Body: Back to bare metal in 2001, HOK Kandy cobalt blue with patterns (very subtle) and silver miniflake HOK roof. Pinstriping by tootall 2005, all intact!
    New trim all round & new badges

    Interior: orginial benches front and rear recovered in deep button draylon.

    Audio: available separately PM for info
