Washed in boiling water: 1961 Chevrolet Bel Air


It seeems that many in the past have been infected by the “shrink” virus: last year we published another car customized in the same way: that time was an italian car but this time the experiment has been made on a ’61 Bel Air.


It’s the first time indeed that we see this modification on a big size american car: not a beautiful outcome but an head turner for sure.


The seller says that this job has been made more than 25 years ago (we suspect during the late ’70s as the polaroid supplied by the seller suggests) and that this car has an inline 6 engine mated to an auto trans. It would be nice to discover the oversteer capability of this extreme swb car and we’re pretty sure that, once restored, this could be the show queen whatever the custom meeting you will join. Find it for sale at $8,000 o.b.o. here in Las Vegas (?), NV.

  1. I bought this car from and man in WV. It was a mess to say the least.stored outside I am sure. I have a lot of work ahead of me. Any information on this vehicle would be appreciated. send info to kis45@bellsouth.net I am in the process of a complete re-build on the car now. I have not seen another 1960’s cut or chopped this way, has anyone ever seen one cut in half like this? Thanks JK
