1959 Chevrolet Bel Air
Model: Bel Air
Engine: 283ci V8
Joe’s Golden Gasolines is proud to present this very original, unmolested, exceptionally straight and well-presented 1959 Chevrolet Belair. This 4-door sedan is extremely hard to find in this condition. This 62 year old survivor has only 64,850 original miles on the clock. The doors shut like it just came out of the factory. The last owner was a mechanic and kept the underneath and the engine very healthy. New brake lines, new dual exhaust, new fuel tank, shockers, radiator, plugs and leads have been brought brand new/changed on the car.
Under the bonnet in the extremely tidy engine bay is the factory 283 Cubic Inch V8 Turbo Fire linked to the 2 speed powerglide column shift automatic transmission. The engine runs sweet, starts first go every time, drives like it just came out of the factory and is ready to roll with SA registration complete.
Inside the interior, including the roof liner, bench seats and floor is mated with a combination of copper metallic vinyl and grey pattern fabric cloth. The Chevrolet symbol is engraved in the vinyl, on the door cards and throughout the seats. The dash panel is in excellent condition with great visibility of the instruments and the controls through the spoke and rim design. The spacious glove compartment has its own look. The inside is all original and in very nice condition. Glass is intact and all original. The trunk, floors and seals are all very solid. Overall, this is a remarkable vehicle in the condition that it is in.
On the exterior the Chevrolet still sports the ORIGINAL paint which is presented in a 2 tone colour combination of Gothic Gold through the bottom with Satin Beige on the top. It has a nice shine to it. The chrome bumpers, mouldings and ornaments are all in original condition, untouched. There is a ding in the back bumper and a couple nicks throughout the mouldings but for a 62 year old original survivor that’s what you’ll get. The Belair has a few optional features on the car including twin ariels on the rear, factory Chevrolet spina hubcaps and overrider chrome extensions on the front.
This is the ultimate surviving vehicle and with those miles and the originality of the Belair you will not find another one like this. Up for sale for $59,850
