There are guys who claim big horsepower in their street cars, then there's the guy who owns this rockin' 1961 Bel Air, who can claim a legitimate 800 horsepower, thanks to a Sonny Leonard-built mountain motor under the hood. With a full cage, a tubbed rear end, and a complete leather interior, it's a street car that's truly ready to race. There aren't many early '60s cars better looking than a bubbletop Chevy, but thanks to the modifications, this one looks downright predatory. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, will roll up on this car at a stop light and think they have a chance. It looks like it eats Hondas for breakfast and finishes with a Mustang chaser. The bodywork is straight and clean, and unlike a lot of tubbed cars, the rear flanks are still laser-straight with no signs of the modifications within. Paint is good, but showing some shelf wear that might benefit from a professional detail. There's still a lot of chrome, including both bumpers, so it's not like you have to pretend with some painted fiberglass stuff, and all the glass is original, so you can cruise without worries. As I said, this is still a street car... barely. Someone spent a fortune on the interior, which is swathed in acres of tan leather wrapped around sculpted bucket seats and a custom center console. Forget unfinished racer-grade door panels, these are lovely custom jobs that also include things like power windows, courtesy lights, and billet handles. The original dash remains, and you'll be able to peg that stock speedometer pretty easily, but the racer DNA is obvious in the bank of auxiliary switches and a fully array of gauges keeping an eye on all the vitals. The full cage is NHRA-spec, but lovingly wrapped in more tan leather, so while it's not invisible, it is most certainly beautifully finished. A matching LaCarrera steering wheel on a tilt column gives you something to hold on to when you pin the loud pedal, and the B&M shifter snaps the transmission through the gears with authority. The engine is a 572 cubic inch big block Chevy built by the legendary Sonny Leonard. When Sonny's name goes on the valve covers, you know the best equipment has gone into the build. There's a BDS blower up top that force-feeds the dual quads and Brodix heads enough atmosphere to crank out a real-world 800 horsepower. MSD handles the ignition, while a Be Cool radiator keeps it cool, even when you're reluctantly trapped in traffic. Underneath, the chassis is race-grade all the way, with a Chris Alston rear subframe and a 4-link suspension. Long-tube headers feed a 3-inch dual exhaust with Flowmasters that sounds like the gates of hell have been unleashed. Hooking it all up are a set of massive 33x21.5x15 Mickey Thompson meats on Weld wheels. If you're tired of guys spouting off about how much power they have on their mildly modified cars, this is the antidote. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
