1953 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible
This "first year" show quality Bel Air convertible is exceptional! The restoration was completed over 25 years, just prior to our seller's purchase. It has been properly stored in a climate controlled private facility along with his other vehicles. He tells us that it has traveled just over 6,000 miles since it was restored. You will enjoy this Bel Air for the pleasure of driving it to the cruise events, "top down" evenings and weekends with the family, and, as a testament to the preservation and care received, you will be proud to take it to the shows as well. It is absolutely beautiful in " Target Red" with complementing red and white interior. Factory options include power steering, which helps make it a pleasure to drive. Stop in and see this one in person. You'll want to take her home!
The Bel Air model was introduced for the 1950 model year and remained at the top of the Chevrolet lineup for many years afterward. It began life as part of the Deluxe Styleline Bel Air series. In 1951, the top of the line, Styleline name was changed to Bel Air. Bel Air bodies were distinguished by wide chrome moldings running from the rear fender bulges to the rear bumper and "Bel Air" scripts. Interiors got more luxurious in 1953 Bel Airs. They were loaded with chrome trim and a steering wheel with chrome horn ring.
First generation Bel Airs were available with 216.5 or 235.5 CID engines mated to either manual or automatic transmission. They were available as 2-door hardtop coupes, 2-door coupes, 2-door convertibles, 4-door sedans and 4-door station wagons.*
