Chevrolet Bel Air

Welcome to our ‘Vehicle of the Month’ 2021 blog post series, which has been running since August last year, to share some of the most fascinating and remarkable car and motorbike stories, restoration projects and travel adventures of our customers.
Last month we shared a story by Phil and his Austin Rover.
This month we would like to introduce you to Andrew and his Chevrolet Bel Air.

Andrew is a long term member of “Sporting Bears”; a dedicated group of classic car and sports car enthusiasts with the primary aim – to raise money for children’s charities through our own social, dream rides and touring events, and to support other charitable events.
I bought the car in September 2016 in Manchester. It was imported to the UK in June that year, from San Jose, California.
It was in excellent condition, as you can see!
Originally fitted with a 283ci V8 engine, this car has been upgraded by fitting a 1968 Camaro 350ci
Met these guys when I was out for a wee run - cue for an impromptu car show!
I'm a member of the Sporting Bears Motor Club, and the car has taken part in many events and raised money for children's charities. Here we are offering "Dream Rides" around Glasgow, to kids taking part in the Transplant Games. We were escorted by the police stopping traffic as a VIP training exercise - great fun!
