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.

Teen Age Kid Thought It Was A Sports Car.
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
