Like the rest of this astonishing car, the matching Turquoise and White interior is so impressively finished as to be judged better than original.

Other than its assembly at GM’s Flint, Michigan, plant, very little is known of the early history of this exceptional Bel Air convertible. The car is believed to wear its authentic livery, as its Fisher body plate clarifies an original color scheme of Black Onyx paint over an interior of red and beige vinyl. At some point over the last twenty years, this Chevrolet was treated to a thorough restoration that renewed the vibrancy of its presentation. The beautifully detailed Onyx paint shines deeply and the red upholstery is supple and pristine, both displaying as-new quality. Auction Source: 2011 Amelia Island Auction by Gooding & Company
