1963 Chevy Bel Air Squeezed To Fit Inside Modern Garage

1963 Chevy Bel Air Squeezed To Fit Inside Modern Garage A 17.5-foot classic barely fits inside this garage, but it fits! Garage space can be an issue when owning long cars or pickup trucks, especially when it plays home to large toolboxes and other storage items. Speaking of lengthy cars, the 1963 Chevrolet Bel Air is a ridiculously long car that measures at a whopping 17.5-feet in length, and it sits on a 119-inch wheelbase. The ’63 Bel Air model is almost a full foot longer (11 inches) than the 1957 model.

How A 1963 Chevy Impala Kept One Man Out Of Jail

This is a great reason why kids should learn to fix vehicles.

The video below tells the interesting story of how Juan Ramirez was able to stay on the straight and narrow by focusing on his goal of restoring his dream car. We all have that one car which fascinated us as a child or teenager, maybe for reasons we can’t quite explain. For Ramirez it was his friend’s older brother’s black convertible Chevy Impala. It was a beautiful vehicle that made the young Ramirez want to work hard and get one of his own.

Finally, Ramirez acquired a 1963 Chevy Impala. It needed work, and as car projects go, as he dug into the vehicle he found it would take more than he originally thought to bring the convertible back to its former glory. The time spent laboring on his ride kept Ramirez and his brother busy and away from the gangs in their area. It’s like the old saying, “teach your child a love of cars, then he’ll never have enough money for drugs.”

California Dreamin’ In A 1961 Chevrolet Impala

California Dreamin’ In A 1961 Chevrolet Impala This early ‘60s sedan is the perfect beach cruiser. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); AutoBarn Classic Carsis offering you the opportunity to own this gorgeous 1961 Chevrolet Impala. Beach days are ahead with this partially restored sedan from the early '60s, and it comes complete with a surfboard attached to the roof. And with a spacious interior, you can fit all your friends along with everything else needed for the perfect beach adventure.

Everyone knows the frustration of uncovering weird “hacks” or strange fixes previous owners used on a car you cherish, but they obviously treated somewhat dismissively. Ramirez had to overcome those challenges, like finding out the floor had rusted through and someone scrap metal to patch it up, including an actual stop sign.

Ramirez didn’t have money to pay a shop for repairs, so he had to learn how to tackle these issues himself. It was a stressful learning process, but anyone who’s taken on a big project knows the satisfaction of finally completing it.

Instead of doing something flashy, Ramirez settled on a restoration that’s more understated, and the car looks fantastic. He says he takes the Chevy Impala out on the open road to relax. Considering how comfortable and solid of a cruiser classic Impalas are, it’s a good choice for those kinds of drives.
