This 1961 Chevrolet Bel Air has that cool/clean street sleeper impression that we all love. And this has a well-built big block, upgraded suspension, and four-on-the-floor to properly deliver on this style. But when you see everything from the proper gloss of the finish to the A/C interior, you start to understand just how thoughtful of a total build this Bel Air really is.
You already know why the 1961 Impala is such a cool ride. There were some nice touches that did not make it onto any other year, and so they are sought after by collectors today. This kind of lineage is why you have a street machine kind of setup that still takes the time to give you flair. It's in the classic details, like the bright wraparound chrome bumpers, color-matched steelie wheels, and the full-length sweeping trim. And it's sure to draw a crowd with elements like the wraparound rear window with body overhang. But the part we know you love the best is the crisply pleated dipping "V" in the trunk. It's something so daring that this style is unique to the '61.
Inside is a well-done interior that has a clean and complete look, and all that darkness shows it likes to get down to speedy business. The dual-spoke factory steering wheel gives you a clear view of the speedometer and Stewart Warner auxiliary readouts. The strategically-mounted tach on top of the dash goes quite well with the Hurst shifter. And there's no radio because we all know the motor makes the best soundtrack. So while this is a driver's car, there's also a cruiser side. Two rows of wide bench seats, front seatbelts, and plush carpeting make it inviting for passengers. There's even cold-blowing Air conditioning.
Filling the engine bay is some proper big block power. The 348 cubic-inch V8 looks show-ready with the bright block radiating against the clean black inner walls and components. And while the powerhouse looks vintage, it's enhanced with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock Performer intake, and Doug's headers feeding the dual exhaust. Best of all, you have full control over this V8 and its rumbling soundtrack with the four-speed manual transmission. This feeds into a beefed up and fresh rear end. As you're looking back there, you'll also spot upgraded rear arms, QA1 shocks, and springs with adjustable airbags. Add in drilled & slotted front disc brakes, and you have a solid all-around driver.
