This 1960 model seems to be a very challenging project, that’s true, but on the other hand, a Bel Air like this one could end up being worth quite a small fortune if properly restored to factory specifications.
We’re being told the car has been stored in an old barn for a very long time, and unfortunately, everybody knows what this means. Any potential buyer should therefore expect the typical metal issues, including on the floors and in the trunk, as they are very likely to be rather rusty.
The most mysterious bit of this Chevrolet Bel Air is, without a doubt, the engine under the hood. While the seller says they know nothing about the car, they also claim the Bel Air appears to be coming with a 409 (6.7-liter) big-block, but of course, we shouldn’t expect any good news on this front.
In other words, there’s a very solid chance the engine is no longer running, but obviously, this isn’t exactly a surprise, given it’s a project that’s been sitting for a very long time in a barn.
