Retro Designs in North Carolina has fitted a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 to a first-generation Bel Air.
As far as restomods go, this one is rather comprehensive.
It's the creation of Retro Designs in North Carolina and its owner Daniel Valjevac, and it's essentially a 1954 Chevrolet Bel Air coupe with a massive LT4 6.2-liter supercharged V8 beneath the humongous hood.
Thanks to an unique cool air intake and a slew of additional engine improvements, power is up to 640bhp, which should be sufficient for your 1950s Chevy.
Thankfully, it's all mounted on a bespoke Scott's Hotrods chassis with a GM-sourced eight-speed automatic transmission, Wilwood brakes, and contemporary wheels and tyres.
Of course, there's a lot of chrome, and you may have observed that it's situated low.
This is due to the air ride suspension and a custom-made oval exhaust that allows the car to clear the tarmac.
The repair required 'thousands of hours,' according to Retro Designs, and the price reflects that.
We'll say it right up front: it's $350,000.
Is it really worth it ?
