“The first Bel Air was launched for the 1950 model year as a full-size vehicle on the General Motors A-body platform, later receiving a facelift in 1953,” AutoHunter says in the Bel Air’s listing.
This 1954 example is finished in turquoise and accented by a white roof. Along with the door handles, the hood and decklid have been shaved. The listing notes that the brightwork and body lines also have been adjusted.
The interior houses reupholstered green and white vinyl bench seats with matching door panels, dash and carpeting. The dash features a ribbed chrome trim with a Chevrolet insignia.
Amenities include air conditioning, radio and a column-mounted aftermarket tachometer.
Power comes from a replacement 327cid V8 topped with a chrome-finished air cleaner. It’s linked to a column-shifted 3-speed Turbo 350 automatic transmission.
The odometer reads 23,000 miles, although true chassis mileage is unknown.
This Chevy Bel Air’s auction ends October 8 at 11:00 a.m. PST.
