This gorgeous 1961 Chevrolet Bel Air Bubbletop Custom is the ultimate nostalgic Resto-Mod. It looks like an era-correct hot rod from the 60’s but is loaded with custom features throughout. This is a very unique body style, especially when compared to the commonly seen Bel Air Tri-Five models. As the original VIN tag indicates this car was built in Janesville, MI, as a 1961 Chevrolet Bel Air 2-door sport coupe with an 8-cylinder engine. As the original trim tag indicates it left the factory with a Sea Foam Green exterior and Green interior. It was the product of a meticulous nut and bolt rotisserie restoration and it only has been driven 335 miles since completion. A new binder with tons receipts and some restoration photos are included. The engine alone was over $25,000 as documented. This car is in show quality condition from top to bottom and has achieved a “Best in Show” award which is included. This car retains most of its original sheet metal and the body is straight. The car was refinished in its original color of Sea Foam Green, which dresses it well. The paint has recently been detailed to a brilliant shine. The front windshield is new and the remaining glass is in very nice condition. The car has a killer stance on painted 15” Smoothie wheels with chrome Rally center caps. The wheels are wrapped with BF Goodrich Silver Town Radial Redline tires. The fabulous interior of this car was completely restored and complements the exterior perfectly. The headliner and sun visors match the exterior color. The dash, steering column and steering wheel were painted a darker shade of green. The door panels and seats were reupholstered in a medium shade of green along with three colorful stripes. Some of the interior custom features include a blue dome light bulb, Stewart Warner gauges and RPM tachometer, black billet shifter and custom carpeted front floor mats. A set of factory style rubber floor mats are included. The trunk compartment was restored and finished with the correct style paint along with factory style trunks mats and spare tire. The engine compartment is nicely detailed throughout with many upgrades. The firewall was painted Sea Foam Green and the rest was painted in satin black. The car is powered by an aluminum 540 V8 with an estimated 650HP that runs excellent. The engine block was ordered from well-known Bill Mitchell Products and the parts were ordered from well-known Shafiroff Race Engines. The engine was built with the best of parts. It’s equipped with Edelbrock Performer RPM 409 aluminum heads, LWA 690 Custom intake, custom pulleys, dual Quick Fuel Q-series carburetors and black custom air cleaner, black Chevrolet valve covers, Moroso crank case breathers, MSD programmable ignition system, Taylor Pro Race 490 wires, Holley HP billet fuel pump, Edelbrock Victor Series aluminum water pump, and custom hoses. The engine is cooled by an aluminum radiator with Flex-a-lite electric fan and billet overfill canister. The engine breathes through Sanderson ceramic headers and a custom 3” exhaust system with Performance Turbo mufflers that sounds awesome. Some other upgrades include a billet clutch reservoir, Wilwood master cylinder and Optima battery that was painted black. The engine is coupled to a new Tremec TKO 600 5-speed manual transmission with G-Force flywheel and high performance clutch that is easy to operate. The power is transferred to the new narrowed Ford 9” POSI rear end with Moser axles and 389 gears. The undercarriage is also nicely detailed throughout with many upgrades. The underside was painted body color with textured material for durability. The steering system, suspension system and braking system was completely gone through. Some upgrades include the front and rear sway bar, rear QA1 double adjustable trailering arms and SSBC four wheel disc brakes. This vehicle has been completely serviced and detailed which is documented with an invoice that is included. From the MS CLASSIC CARS collection.
