The car is a 1963 Chevy Bel Air 4 door with the original 79,000 mile 140 horse 230 6 cylinder with a powerglide.I bought the car back in 1996 for $1,500.00 from my brother in law who used it for a work car.I started out cleaning the trunk, interior and engine compartment. I painted the trunk with spatter paint and put in new carpet, detailed the jack assembly and spare tire. The interior was alot more work. I replaced the headliner, front and rear seat covers, put down new carpet and floor mats. The floor boards were rust free so I lucked out there! The door panels are original as they are in really good shape. It still sports the original AM radio with a single speaker in the top of the dash. I added a Sun Super Tach and a set of Stewart Warner gauges and other than those 2 additions the interior is pretty much factory looking. The body had only 2 small rust areas to deal with. A good friend of mine does body work and paint took the car and fixed the rust and changed the color from the original ice blue to midnight blue metallic from 1965. All the mouldings, bumpers, grille , and glass are original also. I went crazy detailing the engine compartment, cleaned, sanded, primed and painted for days to get it the way I wanted it to look !! I added chrome to the engine and upgraded to a Pertronix Ignition,moroso wires, Split Fire Spark Plugs,Accel Super Stock coil and a K&N Filter Charger To pull in more air. I trust Royal Purple 20 w 50 and a K&N oil filter to protect my engine. I ripped off the exhaust manifold and single exhaust system and replaced it with a Clifford Performance dual outlet header and had The Muffler Man install dual full length exhaust using Summit Racing 18'' glass packs . This upgrade really made a huge differance, but man is it LOUD !!!!!!!!!!!!!! I ditched the bias ply tires and installed Chevy Ralley wheels with Cooper Cobra raised white letter tires. I went with 225/70/15 on the front and 245/60/15 on the rear. That was a real nice move, improved the looks of the car plus it rides and handles 100% better. The car is just fun to drive even though it has manual brakes and manual steering. I love drag racing so the Bel Air does see some 1/4 mile passes. It's not a speed demon but it is very consistant.It's all about having fun. I took the glasspack mufflers off and had a pair of Jones turbo tubes installed last week. They really sound alot better, more of a deeper tone and I can actually hear the radio now.
