The dash was fully restored, with fresh Dakota Digital gauges tucked into the original gauge panel, and the band of smoky, hydro-dipped “wood” grain trim that stretches from end to end is very trick, smoothly eliminating the secondary controls and radio and integrating A/C vents for a clean, polished look. A custom center console that stretches to the back seat was fabbed up and incorporates a slick late-model shifter for the overdrive transmission. There’s also A/C, a double din stereo, and a tilt steering column topped by a Budnik steering wheel.
Finally, the stance is just right with those staggered Budniks (18″ front; 20″ rear) and performance radials. With only 849 miles on the build, this show-stopper is still extremely fresh. Drive or show, it’s up to you, and this Bel Air excels at both.
