Everything Else

The complete car is being sold. It may be hard to see all the parts as many are packed into the trunk and the interior of the car. There are no components missing to my knowledge. If there are any specific items you would like to know about please ask. I tried to take pictures that capture as much as possible.

We bought this car in 2009 from a woman in Oklahoma who drove it to High School in the early 90s. She had always wanted wanted a trip five so her dad gave it to her as a gift. I believe the car was parked shortly after and hasn’t been driven since.

After a fun and productive start to our restoration project my wife and I put it on hold to have a couple of kids and move to a new house. I am finally admitting that I will not be able to return to this project for some time and parting ways with it.

If you are looking for parts there are many parts here that you may be able to use on other Chevy Bel Air, 150’s, two-doors etc.
