This car has the high-horse fuel-injected 283/283 HP engine, strongest in the lineup that year and part of the then-growing public interest in performance. The Rochester Ramjet unit was considered a huge advance at the time, and Chevrolet even marketed the “1 H.P. Per Inch” in period advertising. Beautifully detailed, the underhood appearance here is exceptional. With a column-shifted 3-speed transmission, there are other excellent options elsewhere on this car as well. Of course, ordering the Bel Air meant some of the trim was done in gold-tone plating, while the fluted rear inserts, continental kit, dual rear-mount antennas and small crossed-flag “fuel injection” emblems all blend to impress. The interior options include the vacuum ashtray, Wonderbar radio, clock and compass, mechanical windshield washer and power windows, seats and top. Even more exclusive is the rain sensor for the soft top, which would automatically raise the convertible top if it started raining while the owner was busy at work or inside the grocery store. The color chosen inside, red and silver, complements the beauty of the Onyx Black paint and matching top. Spotlight mirrors on both side complete the look of class, and the car is equipped with steel wheels featuring full-size spinner wheel covers and wide whitewall tires. Impressive in almost every aspect, this award-winning Bel Air convertible is certain to make heads turn both inside and out.
