Mike Bello's 1953 Chevrolet Bel-Air - The Purple Kruzer. Mike's Chevrolet has been restyled with 1956 Packard quarter panels, taillights, and a rear bumper. The top has been chopped 4 inches, and the quarter windows have been extended. Up front it received 1955 Dodge headlights. Photo courtesy of Bello's Kustoms.

A 1939 Chevrolet Master Deluxe that Bello's have been working on. The car came in as a shell on the stock frame for a full suspension and drivetrain make-over. At the shop, it received IFS suspension up front and the Bello's Kustoms 4-Link in the back sitting on Accuair air ride suspension. A 327 CI engine and 700r4 transmission were installed along with a S10 rear end for a nice cruiser with some get up-n-go. In July of 2022 they took it for a test-spin.
