Vehicle Overview

This is a 4 door Bel Air. Sat in th back yard of a house down in the valley of El Paso. Bought it for $1,200.00. Bought some gas, a battery, Ford it up and to everyone’s surprise it started. Had a bear up 283 with a two barrel. Swapped it out for a 350 with a mike cam, 700 R tranny and 4/11 gears. It hauls. Shaved the door handles which gives it a smooth clean look.

Future Plans

Will need to completely redo the paint. Took it to a body shop worked progressed very slowly. Became leery and picked it up when the owner was not there. Shop closed three weeks later. This ride will go to my granddaughter Sloane Rose Lewis when I kick the ole “bucket” since she is only three years old
