51 Chevy Belair custom

Recommended Posts

What an outstanding build. Great mix of parts topped off with a beautiful paint job. Congratulations on finishing it.  BTW- most of my builds are that way. I have been combing through mine to determine which ones need to come back out for finishing.

HOLY SNAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!    That is pure beauty, all those custom mods were definitely worth digging it back out mate.

And the engine looks superb, topped of with a sweet paint job, absolute beautiful build...

Nice paint, reminds me of Larry Watson's style.  Is that engine using the Fisher Crossflow head, the AMT '51 Bel Aire had   one in it the last time I built one.

Thanks! Larry Watson certainly influences my paintwork as you might see in my other builds. The engine in it's entirety is from the Galaxie 48 Chevy kit which I believe had all the high performance 'Wayne' stuff in it. I scratchbuilt the triple carb intake to accommodate the 3 sidedraft carbs.
