Marc Shiliro's Classic Cars
You're looking at another beautiful classic car listed by MS CLASSIC CARS!
1954 Chevrolet Bel Air Custom Coupe
Hello, I’m Marc Schiliro the owner of MS CLASSIC CARS.  You might recognize my name or my business name from beautiful classic cars, trucks and motorcycles I’ve collected and sold nationally.  I’ve got over 20 years of classic vehicle experience.  I’d like to put that experience to work for you.  I’ve learned a lot and I’m educated in many different makes and models ranging from the early 1900’s to current.  Over the years I’ve collected and sold over 400 classic vehicles which I’m very proud of.  I sell a large percentage of my inventory from networking and from the various websites I advertise on.  I sell a small percentage of my inventory at various auctions such as Barrett Jackson.  I’ve set over 15 world record prices on various makes and models.  I’ve also featured many classic vehicles at different auctions across the United States. I’ve had many vehicles that have been featured in multiple magazines and multiple websites.  I specialize in beautiful classic vehicles that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I collect classic vehicles that are already completed and slightly redesign them, service them and detail them. I have also coordinated restorations from start to finish.
 
The MS CLASSIC CARS showroom is located in Seekonk, Massachusetts and was established in 2012.  The MS CLASSIC CARS service department and multiple storage facilities are also located in Seekonk, Massachusetts.  The MS CLASSIC CARS operations are closed to the public.  A private viewing of a vehicle can be made scheduled by appointment Monday through Friday.  The MS CLASSIC CARS inventory consists of roughly 40 classic cars and trucks that we own, service and detail.  We’re one of the only dealerships who document the service work we do to every vehicle with an invoice.  Each vehicle is presented with detailed descriptions and multiple photos.  We offer no consignment inventory.  When you call you deal directly with me. I know each vehicle well and will go over the vehicle of your interest in full detail.  I’ll also assist you with any other needs such as trades, financing, insurance or shipping.  I promise to make the process from start to finish easy and enjoyable.  I take a lot of pride in my business and my reputation reflects that.  I appreciate the opportunity to earn your business.  “MS CLASSIC CARS isn’t just another dealer.  MS CLASSIC CARS is a brand.”

I've been collecting classic cars and trucks for over 15 years now and have seen a lot happen. I've seen the hobby continue to grow not only on the internet and auctions but also with the amount of television shows, magazines and websites that are related to classic cars in some form or another. I strongly believe the classic car market is a great place to invest in. When the economy is strong, the classic car market is extremely strong. When the economy isn't so strong the classic car market holds its own. I've sold classic cars and trucks in both economic conditions. The reason classic cars make such a great investment is because people are crazy about cars, especially classic cars.  These people aren’t just one age group but all different ages ranging from very young to very old.  It’s a much diversified market.  I've learned it's not just people in the United States but its people all over the world.  Roughly 20% of my sales are from people who live outside of the United States.  Some examples would be Canada, Australia, Mexico and Europe.  Also from what I’ve learned roughly 20% of bidders at auctions are also  people who live outside the United States. 

  Over the years I've noticed that the higher quality classic cars have always commanded a higher price. Even people who don't have any classic car experience can recognize and appreciate attention to detail. Over the last 10 years the overall market has been very strong and I believe it will continue to grow.  Certain classic cars prices are on the rise and others are on the decline.  It’s all about supply and demand not about a good or bad economy.  The classic cars that are on the rise are the cars that a lot of people want but there aren’t many on the market for sale.  The classic cars that are on the decline are the cars that a lot of people don’t want anymore and there’s many on the market for sale. Of course, if the car is a rare model and spectacular it will command a higher price as I mentioned. Desirable factory correct classic cars that are documented with matching numbers always make solid investments.  Custom cars have remained strong because each car is different from the next one. They each have their own character and there worth what people are willing to pay.

  Prior to this business I was just a blue collar guy who was working full time selling new and used Mercedes Benz.  I was very passionate about classic cars and trucks so I decided to sell them part time.  Although I had my used car dealer’s license I didn’t have my own dealership.  Overall things were going just fine but my dream was to open my own classic car and truck dealership.  I decided to give up my full time job with health insurance and a 401K to open a new classic and truck dealership.  I had to invest a ton of money to make that happen which required using my family’s savings and acquiring loans such as a home equity line of credit.  I also now would have a lot of overhead that I didn’t have before.  The bottom line is I went all in.  Do you think I would’ve done all that if I didn’t think the classic car and truck market wasn’t going to remain strong?  “I’m putting my money where my mouth is”.

1954 Chevrolet Bel Air Custom


***THIS VEHICLE IS BEING CONSIGNED TO THE UPCOMING OWLS HEAD AUCTION BEING HELD AT THE OWLS HEAD TRANSPORTATION MUSEUM IN OWLS HEAD, ME AUGUST 16-17.  IT WILL BE SELLING ON SATURDAY AUGUST 17TH. LOT #98***

This stunning 1954 Chevrolet Bel Air Custom is a great example of a restomod with the perfect mixture of old and new.  It has been fully restored to show quality standards and is loaded with options including Vintage Air Conditioning, LT1 fuel injected V8, 6-speed manual transmission, 12-bolt rear end and power four wheel disc brakes. The first generation Chevrolet Bel Airs were produced from 1950-1954.  These cars are known for their beautiful styling.  As the VIN number indicates this car was built as the 1954 Chevrolet Bel Air in Los Angeles, CA.  As the trim tag indicates the original exterior color was black and the original interior color was black and white.  From the information gathered this car spent its entire life in California until 2019.  It was purchased by a gentleman in California as a very original car.  He had a vision to create a masterpiece that would have the perfect mixture of old and new.  He decided to move forward and do a complete restoration.  Many receipts from the restoration are included.  He invested a ton of time and money into the build.  Being a California car it retains its original sheet metal.  The center line of the hood was smoothed for a clean look.  The body is very straight and it has great gap lines throughout.  To keep it real it was painted in its original color of black.  To add some old school flavor the roof and in-between the side moldings were painted blue metal flake.  This color combination looks stunning and attracts serious attention.  The paint on this car is deep and show quality.  All of the glass was replaced with brand new lightly tinted glass.  This included a new front windshield, two vent windows, four side side windows and rear window.  Everything on the exterior was restored or replaced to high quality standards including all window trim, door trim, side moldings, grill, headlight bezels, taillight bezels, bumpers, door handles and emblems.  The wipers were deleted for a clean appearance. The rear chrome plate frame is lighted.  The car has a great stance on new 18” Budnik “Remington L” polished wheels.  These are high quality and expensive wheels that are custom ordered.  The wheels are wrapped with BF Goodrich G-Force Sport tires that are 225-50-18 on the front and 245-45-18 on the rear.  The interior was completely restored and looks beautiful.  To keep it real it was finished in similar colors to the original colors.  The headliner, side piping, kick panels, door panels, front seat, rear seat and shift boot is bone white leather.  The interior was wrapped with insulation and covered with premium carpeting.  The dash was painted black to match the exterior and all new chrome trim was added including new dash hardware.  All of the interior trim was also restored or replaced to high quality standards.  The vent levers, window cranks and door handles are new.  It’s equipped with Dakota Digital gauges, black steering column, billet steering wheel with black wrap, billet pedals, aluminum shifter with black knob and Vintage Air Conditioning.  It also has a fully custom Autosound stereo system with Kicker speakers in the door panels and rear shelve.  The trunk compartment was finished to match the interior and looks equally as beautiful.  The engine compartment is nicely detailed throughout.  The engine bay was painted the body color to showcase everything.  The car is powered by an LT1 fuel-injected V8 crate engine.  This engine starts instantly and runs excellent.  Some of features include a Street Performance wiring harness, aluminum valve covers with matching breathers, custom black intake cover and custom air intake.  It has custom fitted lines and hoses placed in the firewall for the air conditioning and heating system.  The engine is cooled by an aluminum radiator with dual electric fans and aluminum overfill canister.  The engine breathes through factory style manifolds and a fully polished exhaust system with Magnaflow mufflers.  It has a great sounding exhaust system.  The engine is coupled to a 6-speed manual transmission.  It’s equipped with a Ram hydraulic clutch with aluminum reservoir.  This clutch is very smooth and easy to operate.  The power is transferred to the pavement through the rebuilt 12-bolt rear end with 3.73 gears.  It’s equipped with power rack and pinion steering which works very nicely.  The undercarriage is nicely detailed throughout with many upgrades.  Everything was restored or replaced including a new gas tank.  The power braking system consists of a Wilwood master cylinder, black power booster and four wheel discs with black calipers.  The front suspension has drop spindles and the rear has KYB shocks. This 1954 Chevrolet Bel Air is the ultimate cruiser and easy on the eyes.  This car has recently been serviced and detailed which is documented with an invoice that is included. 




Unfortunately most classic vehicles that are being advertised for sale by dealers, private parties and auctions aren't exactly what are being advertised for sale.  This is an industry with no real guidelines and everyone's opinion is completely different.  The average consumer doesn’t realize classic vehicles weren’t restored at the factory and are being restored by people in their garages.  Everyone’s level of restoration experience is different and it shows in the restoration.  An example would be a classic vehicle that's  being advertised as an original model with matching numbers could be a phony with a reproduction trim tag and re stamped numbers on the engine block, etc.  Another example would be a classic vehicle is being advertised as a full restoration when indeed only a few things have been restored.  There are many classic vehicles listed for sale that have cosmetic and mechanical issues with such items as the body, paint, glass, lights, body hinges, gauges, window components, steering components, upholstery, engine leaks and tuning, radiators, transmission, rear end, brake components and suspension components.  The consumers are spending thousands of dollars repairing the classic vehicles they've purchased after the sale.  A bad purchase could turn into the buyer’s worst nightmare and be extremely costly!

MS CLASSIC CARS specializes in beautiful classic cars and trucks that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I personally have selected these vehicles and take pride in what I represent.  I'm not a classic car dealer who is only looking to make a quick buck.  I’ve seen dealers and private parties purchase classic vehicles at auctions and online and immediately list them for sale.  Most of these vehicles aren’t being advertised correctly and haven’t been serviced or detailed.  This business is my career and reputation which means everything to me.  I do the best of my ability to represent quality classic cars and advertise them honestly.  To be clear I’m not in the restoration business.  I represent classic vehicles that have already been restored.

  This vehicle is owned by MS CLASSIC CARS and is located in Seekonk, MA.  I personally have seen, touched and driven this vehicle.  This vehicle has been through a service and detail process which is documented with an MS CLASSIC CARS invoice.  I write the descriptions, take the photos, advertise them for sale and answer all the calls and emails.  I'll personally go over the entire vehicle and tell you everything I know about it.  I'll also give you my opinion if it’s truly the right vehicle for you. I’ll consider all trades and also offer financing if necessary.   Once you've committed to purchase a classic vehicle from MS CLASSIC CARS, I’ll make it a very easy process from start to finish.  Once the funds have cleared I'll immediately mail the paperwork USPS 2-day air.  A CD with the description and photos of the vehicle you purchased will be included in the package.  I’ll also assist in shipping your vehicle to its new home.

         If you've read the introduction tab or visited my website you’ll probably agree I'm a bit of a perfectionist and represent very detailed classic vehicles. MS CLASSIC CARS has a great reputation and we continue to raise the bar in the classic car and truck world.  I sell our classic cars and trucks very quickly because consumers see the value.  I look forward to working with you.  Please read my website testimonials and eBay positive feedback.  Thank you for the opportunity!
