Description:

Before the Tri-Fives showed up, this 1954 Chevy Bel Air convertible was the car to own. Now upgraded to V8 power, it neatly eliminates the one complaint folks have about these cars, making this a wonderful summertime cruiser with a more vintage look that''s quite appealing. This was the end of the line for the rounded, 1940s-era styling, but if you love those bulging quarter panels and lots of ornate chrome, this might be the one to own. Horizon Blue paint gives it a sunny disposition that looks right on an early-50s machine and it''s highlighted by a strip of dark blue in the Bel Air trim along the rear flanks. It was done a few years ago, and as a result has a soft gloss that appears to reach back in time and doesn''t have that hard shine that modern urethane paints deliver. Maybe some folks like it ultra shiny, but we''ve found that visitors are drawn to this car''s glow for reasons they can''t altogether explain, and it looks awesome against the many chrome and stainless detail pieces. The grille is protected by accessory bumper guards, the fenders are each protected by some kind of stainless steel shield, and the taillights are ornamented with traditional blue dot lenses. The two-tone blue interior was restored to factory specs, with pleated seating surfaces framed by a lighter stretch of vinyl that highlights the shape of the front bench. Stylish door panels prove that the later cars were not the only ones with artists doing the design work, and dark blue carpets anchor everything to make it inviting. The original speedometer remains in front of the driver, with auxiliary gauges in a custom billet panel, all hidden behind a later steering column and wheel from a later Cadillac (cleverly re-wrapped to disguise it). The slick shifter looks like it might control a 4-speed or something, but it''s actually linked to a quick-shifting TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and is topped with a matching blue knob. An AM/FM/cassette head unit slots neatly into the dash, with an aftermarket A/C unit underneath, although you''ll probably never use it simply because this ragtop is built to cruise alfresco. And speaking of the top, it''s blue vinyl with a clear rear window and matching blue boot to hide it when it''s down. So the Stovebolt was chucked and a reliable 350 cubic inch V8 went between the fenders, and it''s a worthy improvement. In fact, it looks so right in there that it could almost pass for a factory job (and often does to bystanders unfamiliar with the year the small block V8 debuted). A bit of chrome, some factory-looking decals on the air cleaner, and tidy workmanship ensure reliability and easy service, and it definitely sounds different than a stocker with a dual exhaust system underneath. The suspension and brakes are largely stock, although there''s a 10-bolt rear out back that''s augmented by a pair of air shocks, making this a great parade vehicle. 15-inch steel wheels carry hubcaps and 215/75/15 whitewall radials, so the ride is smooth and handling is tidy. This is a neatly upgraded Chevy ragtop that won''t raise many eyebrows but will generate more smiles per mile than the original six. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
