1962 Chevrolet Bel AirReview
62 Bel Air — This one has the 3rd rear facing seat. This car will look great when it's done. It is very straight and solid. I am starting on the interior today 2/16. The interior is and will remain red (burgundy) and I'm thinking silver for a paint color. It has a 700R4 transmission so it will cruise down the freeway at a couple thousand RPM which will save gas. Right now the carburetor has some issues so it's hard to tell how well it runs but the 350 is fresh so I'm confident. The rear air deflectors in the picture have been removed. Next, I will remove the ones on the side windows. The door handles have been shaved. I would have probably not done that myself but they did a very good job so it will stay that way. A click of the remote literally "pops" the doors open.
Pros: Straight Rust Free 4 speed automatic
Cons: Carburetor is sick and the interior is shot.

4 doors, 283ci, 2 speed powerglide transmission, single exhaust with single cherry bomb glasspack. I drove it like an MG midgit and my dad wondered why I couldn't keep tires on it. Go figure. Read More
Styling: Long, low, wide and curvaceous. 1967 is easily the best-looking model-year of the full-size Chevrolets of the 1960's. Comfort: The coil-spring suspension provides a smooth "glide" ride, and ... Read More
I like that it has lots of room for speakers in the trunk and a big power plant under the hood. I also like that the cabin is roomie and just a solid car.I cant wait to get the motor for it. Read More
