Hey you! Do you have a fourth-generation Camaro? Are you sick of the fact that it doesn’t look like a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air? Are you willing to paint some fiberglass to make it look slightly more like a Bel Air? Do you have $5,595?
If the answer to all those questions is “HELL YEAH BUDDY,” then do I have a kit for you!
The Belaro is exactly what the name promises: a Bel Air styling kit for a Camaro.
The 15 piece high quality fiberglass kit is pre-engineered to be assembled in hours, not years!! Notice that the front bumper is part of the front fender (it bolts to the stock 93-02 Camaro mounts ) The hood is a direct replacement for the stock Camaro hood (it uses stock hinges, struts, latch, catch & all the original bolts) 2 door panels cover the curved Camaro doors, and THE BEAUTY PART OF THE DESIGN – Our 1/4 panels snap into the original trunk gap, under the roof, into the doorjam(b – sic) & wheel wells and simply glues OVER the original Camaro 1/4 panels and include all the ’57 Chevy details!
Like 150 trim, Tail Lights, Bumpers, Light Buckets for the Camaro brake, Directional & Back-up Light Sockets.
The ’57 rear bumper cover goes over the stock Camaro bumper and cleans up the bulkhead under the Camaro tail lights. The Belaro trunk overlays the stock Camaro trunk lid.
Couldn’t be simpler, right? Although the coupe is a monstrosity, the convertible approaches non-horribleness:
WHAT’S THAT? You say that you don’t HAVE a Camaro? You have a Mercury Cougar?
That’s right. Save almost two thousand dollars and choose the cheaper Ford kit! Find out more at www.easyrods.com.
The more I look at the Belaro and the unnamed Easyrod Cougar conversion, the more confused I become. Who exactly is the target customer for these things? What’s the appeal? Are the buyers people who are steeped in irony like the Queen’s tea, or are they completely sincere, forthright people who really think these cars look just like their aesthetic inspirations?
I will say this: the first person to race a Belaro in NASA’s American Iron class will have my full respect. Speaking of American Iron, I think I need to see a little footage just to make me feel better about what I’ve just exposed you all to.
