The Bel Air’s two-tone mother-of-pearl yellow with white paint is replete with chrome front and rear bumpers, grille, badging and rocker trim moldings.

The car rides on 5-spoke American Racing wheels, 17 inches in the front and 18 inches out back, with Vogue tires. The upgraded suspension features CPP upper and lower control arms, Heidts 2-inch drop spindles, and a Ridetech 4-link rear suspension with Ridetech coilovers.

To slow the Bel Air, 4-wheel Wilwood 12-inch cross-drilled and slotted disc brakes with a Talon brake booster was installed. The interior features late-model tan cloth buckets seats up front, and a custom center console with a B&M shift lever and cup holders. Creature comforts for the driver and passengers include a Vintage Air HVAC system and a retro-style Wonderbar AM/FM/XM/Bluetooth stereo.

This Bel Air is offered with a clear Nevada title in the seller’s name and the auction ends on December 21, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. MST.
