Award Winning ZZ502 Bel Air Restomod - Over $300k Invested!
The 1957 Bel Air. It seems that America's fascination with cars begins and ends with this cultural and generational icon. And when it comes to Bel Airs, this car stands alone and is arguably one of the finest in existence.
This outstanding RestoMod was built by renowned Tri-Five builder William "NuNu" Lowery of Chattanooga, TN, and truly carries the banner of perfection. Don't believe us? This Bel Air scored a 998/1000 at the Detroit Autorama, and the 2 points she lost were due to “cleanliness”! Perfection folks…perfection. But, one of the most special aspects of this car is that it has rarely been seen in public. This car has acquired less than 200 miles since completion and will turn every head and catch every eye that is lucky enough to see it. Yeah… this is your car.
The fit and finish of this Bel Air is truly spectacular. Every gap is perfect. Every seam is perfect. Every stitch is perfect. Are you sensing a theme here? The cost of building this beauty was well over $200,000 and friends, it is evident from the second you lay eyes on her.
The interior was created by the renowned and award winning Paul Atkins. The moment the door opens, you are welcomed by the scent of fresh, high quality leather. The moment you cozy up behind the wheel, you fall into an overwhelming sensory experience. The seats and door panels are intricately stitched in a pattern that is both simple and elegant. It is just such a pleasure to find a gem like this. Every square inch of this car is truly unbelievable.
As for the exterior... wow! It is truly impossible to find a finish more flawless and perfect than this. You can literally hold a watch up to the car and read the time off the car…a mirror finish if we've ever seen one. And the paint job isn't even the best part of the exterior. Chrome my friends. Chrome and mirror finished stainless. It is everywhere, and light truly explodes off every piece. Oh…and by the way…if you're thinking “Yeah, the topside is amazing, but I wonder what the underside looks like”, let us answer that question for you. It looks even better than the top! The mirror finish extends to the undercarriage in a way that is truly astonishing. Amazing detail and craftsmanship extends to every component of the undercarriage.
Remember how we mentioned that your senses are overwhelmed with this car? Once you hear this baby, you'll understand what we mean. Under the hood, this Bel Air boasts a 502HP Chevrolet ZZ502 V8 that is absolutely screaming loud and backed up by a 700R4 automatic transmission. If you want to be heard a mile away, this car is for you. If you want to make sure that the people you pass on the road hear and feel you, this is your car. The big block is backed by an automatic transmission and Currie rear end.
Not every car is made equal. Not every Bel Air is made equal. While Bel Airs are relatively easy to find on the market, this one truly stands among the finest. Quality and unequaled craftsmanship is evident in every aspect of this car. Like we mentioned before, not many people have had the opportunity to see this car, which only adds to our pleasure here at Art & Speed. It's an honor for us to offer such a truly rare and special car as part of the Art & Speed lineup. Take your time looking through the pictures. You'll be glad you did!
