The 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air is an amazing car, a legend, but this four-wheeled masterpiece you’re looking at was built by George Barris (aka the King of the Kustomizers) for Ringo Starr, the former drummer of the Beatles and still a global rock star!
This is probably one of the coolest customcars ever built. The Fitted with a flaming hood, the black coupe also sports a set of Cragar-stylewheels and side tailpipes. While visual modifications may be minor, the Corvette-style pipes change the car dramatically, turning it into a vehicle that any hot rod enthusiasts would drool upon, us included.
And if you wonder why we are featuring this unique Bel Air, well … you may become an owner of this customcar on February 7 in Paris, during an event hosted by Artcurial Motorcars. The Chevy, which also comes with a certificate of authenticitybbin十大平台网 from George Barris, will be offered at no reserve and it’s estimated to fetch between €40,000 and €80,000 ($54,400 – $108,800).

The 2014 COPO Camaro dragster is set to become a classic car in the future, according to Hagerty, who recently announced its annual Hot List of future collectibles.

Hagerty’s main argument is that Chevrolet builds only 69 examples of the $90,000 COPOCamaro each year. Read more!
