The beautiful Bel Air hardtop line debuted in 1950 and was an instant success. After all, when you have a totally dependable car and make it a top style model, Chevy was sure to have a winner.
This beautiful car was sold new in California. Later in its life there, a gentleman established a Bel Air museum and this was the first of 18 Bel Airs to go into the museum as show pieces.
Over $40,000 was spent at that time to make this restoration a show-stopper. Its stunning Bittersweet Orange bottom colour, topped with a Beach White roof makes you just step back to look and lust over it. Matching colours, done just like the factory compliment the interior. The headliner with all its chrome strips is magnificent.
Top it off with a powerglide automatic transmission, pin striped wheels, front & rear bumper overlays, custom radio, chrome splash shields, clock, etc.. and the rarest of all accessories: a coolant water filter under the hood (genuine GM accessory for that year and extremely rare).
