1961 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 Bubble Top Description

This was the car we always wanted as a teenager. Don't you remember trying to convince your father to get a car like this 1961 Chevrolet Bel Air? After all, you used the cool hardtop design and great color combo to appeal to his premium side... and you just hoped he'd miss the fact this was a Tri-Power big block coupe with a stick shift that would be perfect to borrow every Saturday night.
You already know why the 1961 Bel Air is such a cool ride. It's from the sought-after couple of years where the hardtop coupe included the highly stylized bubble top design. That skinny c-pillar and wraparound rear window is truly spectacular. The factory-correct Arctic White paint makes for a bright first impression. It's also a great canvas for the trim package. The full brightwork on the front end and dual fender ornaments are pure '60s cool. On the side, not only does the full-length sweeping trim remain unbroken, but it also gives a nice hint at the interior color. In the rear is one of the most intricate forms ever put to sheetmetal. The dipping "V" with the dual tail lamps on each side is something so daring you could only get it in '61.
Inside, the turquoise interior continues this coupe's pure '60s charm. Plus, it looks like there have been investments in places like the carpeting and seats, to keep it period-correct but quite fresh. So this full-sized coupe is perfect for taking family and friends in comfort. The color scheme is well-coordinated with the door panels, carpeting, and dash for a full uniform presentation, so don't be surprised if people like to take a lingering look at the interior. And driving it truly feels like a time machine once you get behind the dual-spoke steering wheel. But with the addition of the tach next to the ultra-wide speedometer, you're once again reminded that this is your teenage fantasy machine.
When you pop the hood, there's no missing the triple dual carburetor setup for Chevy's famous tri-power package. The powerful 348 motor looks fantastic with the bright valve covers and bold block radiating power from within the engine bay. And his performance appearance is no accident. This big block made you the king of the streets, and the dual exhaust had the sound to back it up. Plus, those who were paying attention when ordering also got the three-speed manual transmission to best harness all the power. And to make sure the rubber can truly meet the road, the Rally wheel package is hiding larger, wider rear tires. Are you starting to get the picture on this one? It's the Chevy everyone wished they had in '61 so whether you were around back then, or just enjoy the best from the era, this was the full-size Chevy to envy. But beyond just performance, the this is a fine cruiser, too, thanks to features like power steering and power brakes.
Powerful, beautiful, and enviable this is time to make a fantasy a reality with a cool tri-power bubble-top Bel Air. Don't miss this opportunity, call today!
