1954 Chevrolet Bel Air in LaVergne Tennessee

 Vehicle Description
Looking for inexpensive fun with high style? This 1954 Chevrolet Bel Air sedan might just be the ultimate example. A great combination of originality and tasteful restoration, its built to drive regularly without erasing its original personality, and we like that quite a bit. In todays world of hot rods with the same-old, same-old going on underneath, finding a mostly original car like this can be very / br / Its basic, no getting around that. Simple in Fiesta Cream and Bermuda Green, with a two-tone interior and a couple of choice options, it was probably one of the most desirable of the cheaper cars on the lot back in 54. Nevertheless, it was someones daily transportation back then, and it was reliable and plenty stylish, and today it stands out as something special, even when surrounded by younger, flashier, more option-laden Tri-5 siblings. The correct repaint has a very authentic look over some clean original sheetmetal that probably needed little more than a good scuff to be paint-ready. Its not show-quality, but the whole car has a period look thats very charming and which shines up beautifully. Theres never been any rust on this car from what we can tell, and its probably the kind of car that the original owner proudly bragged about washing every Saturday afternoon. All the chrome is newer and even though some of the aluminum trim is original has some light scratching and a ding or two, its a great barometer of the quality process in the 1950s with nice detail and a deep shine that only comes from spending real money to restore it / br / The no-frills interior is actually a pretty nice place to spend some time, with handsome green vinyl and cloth upholstery and supportive seats that were designed for all-day comfort. Everything on the dash, including the instruments and metal grille that hides the original AM radio speaker, is in incredible shape for being almost 65 years old, and we believe everything but the headliner and carpets is original. The gauges are fully functional and still clear and legible, and original wheels rarely look this good after six decades. The Bel Air got carpets instead of rubber mats, so it feels a bit more luxurious than the usual bargain-priced beaters, and the beautiful door panels suggest that style mattered in every Chevy, not just the expensive ones. The spacious trunk features an original-style rubber mat and a bias-ply spare tire that looks like it might have been installed there in 1954 and not touched / br / Chevys dependable Blue Flame six was the only powerplant available, and with 235 cubic inches, it was torquey and smooth under all conditions. Further evidence of this cars dedication to the past is found under the hood, where it shows proper blue engine enamel, a correct oil bath air cleaner, factory carburetor, and no signs of any of the period speed parts that many Chevys of this vintage often carry. It is neatly detailed and quite stock, even down to the original 6-volt electrical system. A 2-speed automatic transmission was optional equipment, and the column-mounted shifter is simple to use with a clear gear selector display. Regular service to the suspension and brakes throughout the years mean that it drives extremely well, theres a newer exhaust system, and theres something about the way an all-original car drives thats simply impossible to replace during a restoration. Flashy Bel Air hubcaps are always a welcome site, which work well on the stock steel wheels and thick whitewall bias-ply / br / Bargain-priced or not, someone loved this Chevy. Today, its a remarkable specimen that will impress not with its flash, but with its honesty. Call today!br/br/
