1961 Chevy Bel Air - with pictures!!!


I have a 1961 Chevrolet Bel Air. This is the second time I have owned this make/model/year car. The first one was my very first car, bought when I was 15.

The interior and body are already restored, but the engine needs some work. It currently has a v8, 283 in it, but I want to go *much* bigger. I plan on leaving the body and interior as original as possible, but everything in the engine compartment is going to be changed. Additionally, I am going to put on power brakes and maybe add on power steering. I kinda like not having power steering, so I haven't quite decided yet.
