If you like the simple, clean look of the pre-V8 Chevrolets but need plenty more power, may we suggest this 1950 Chevrolet Bel Air hardtop. Not only is this the first year for the iconic Bel Air name, but it also had been upgrades with a fuel-injected LS1 V8, four-wheel disc brakes, and plenty of other goodies, to give this classic American the ultimate sleeper appearance. 1950 was a pivotal year. It was the first time Chevy would offer the pillarless hardtop design of the Bel Air. As one of the most expensive sedans in its lineup, it's also one of the most rare. And of course there are even fewer that survived the 65 years to look this good. The bright red paint is actually a traditional style lacquer, which is something very cool to have when it still presents so well in the sunlight. What's helping the paint look its best is the compete chrome and stainless trim. This is particularly important on this premium-grade Chevy, and so special care has been taken and an investment made into making sure every piece has a mirror shine. The panels look so amazing that we could almost call this a 1950s time machine, except for the addition of American Racing Torq Thrust wheels. Those are a later icon in their own right, and the wheels also hint at the upgrades on this surprisingly fast Bel Air. Inside is the perfect mix of old and new world styles. The seats are a burgundy vinyl with comfortable tan cloth inserts. The banjo-style steering wheel gives better modern grip, but has a classic appearance that matches the original gauge pod just beyond it. But as you reach for the shifter, you spot some very custom upgrades. The Lokar shifter has true hot rod style, and it's connected to a custom center console that has a full set of auxiliary gauges, cup holders, and provisions for air conditioning. There's even a modern AM/FM/CD stereo with auxiliary input so you can play the most modern tunes in your very classic ride. But your favorite upgrade is going to be under the hood. Yes, that's the 345 hp fuel-injected LS1 motor from a Corvette. And the moment you fire this one up, the rumble of the Flowmaster dual exhaust let's everyone know this is no ordinary '50 Chevy. More than just add the motor, the full package can handle the extra power with the 4L60E four-speed automatic w/overdrive from the same donor car. This connects to a stout Ford 9-inch rear end running versatile 3.70 gears. It feels great on the road thanks to upgrades such as the Mustang II independent front suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and the grip of BF Goodrich T/A tires. A beautiful classic on the outside, a comfortable interior, and the perfect modern drivetrain that can easily go from mild to wild with the touch of an accelerator. It's an impressive package on a very significant coupe. You'll likely only ever see one like this, so hurry up and call today!
