Marc Shiliro's Classic Cars
You're looking at another beautiful classic car listed by MS CLASSIC CARS!
1961 Chevrolet Bel Air Bubbletop 540/650HP 5-spd Custom
Hello, I’m Marc Schiliro the owner of MS CLASSIC CARS.  You might recognize my name or my business name from the beautiful classic cars, trucks and motorcycles I’ve collected and sold nationally.  I’ve got over 25 years of classic vehicle experience and continue to learn more every day. I’ve learned a lot and I’m educated in many different makes and models ranging from the early 1900’s to current. I specialize in beautiful classic vehicles that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I only collect number one and number two condition vehicles that are already completed. We slightly redesign them, service them and detail them. I have also coordinated restorations from start to finish but don’t do this anymore. Over the years I’ve collected and sold over 600 classic vehicles which can be seen on the company website sold page. The vehicles are sold to previous customers, referrals and are sold from advertising on various websites, online auctions and live auctions. We’ve featured many classic vehicles at different auctions across the United States. We’ve had many vehicles that have been featured in multiple magazines and multiple websites. I’m proud to say that MS CLASSIC CARS has accomplished some great things with our vehicles over the years. People recognize value in our vehicles and doing business with us. I consider myself to be an expert in the classic car business and would like to put my experience to work for you.

The MS CLASSIC CARS showroom is located in Seekonk, Massachusetts. This location 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 50 classic cars and trucks that we own, service and detail.  We’re the only dealership in the country that services every vehicle we sell and documents it with an invoice. I stand behind every vehicle we sell.  Each vehicle is presented with a detailed description, 150+ high quality photos and a video.  We don’t offer consignments.  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 enclosed shipping.  I promise to make the process from start to finish easy and enjoyable.  I take a lot of pride in this business and our 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.”

Marc Schiliro – The owner

I've been collecting classic cars and trucks for over 25 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 very diverse market.  I've learned it's not just people in the United States but its people all over the world. 

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 20 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 at Viti Mercedes Benz located in Tiverton, RI. They’re recognized for being one of the best Mercedes Benz dealerships in the country for customer service.  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 took on 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”. Thank you.

Sincerely,
Marc Schiliro – The Owner

1961 Chevrolet Bel Air Bubbletop 540/650HP 5-spd Custom


**THIS VEHICLE IS CURRENTLY SELLING LIVE ON A HEMMINGS ONLINE AUCTION. THE AUCTION ENDS ON MONDAY AUGUST 9TH @ 5:00PM EST. IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN BIDDING PLEASE REGISTER DIRECTLY WITH HEMMINGS. IT'S A QUICK AND SIMPLE PROCESS. THANK YOU.**



This gorgeous 1961 Chevrolet Bel Air Bubbletop Custom is the ultimate nostalgic Resto-Mod with its Merlin aluminum dual quad 540/650HP V8, Tremec TKO600 5-speed manual transmission, Ford 9” POSI rear end and SSBC four wheel disc brakes. This car looks like an era-correct hot rod from the 60’s but is loaded with custom features throughout. This is a very unique body style, especially when compared to the commonly seen Bel Air Tri-Five models. As the original VIN tag indicates this car was built in Janesville, MI, as a 1961 Chevrolet Bel Air 2-door sport coupe with an 8-cylinder engine. As the original trim tag indicates it left the factory with a Sea Foam Green exterior and Green interior. The car was purchased by a gentleman in California as a very nice original automobile. He started a meticulous nut and bolt rotisserie restoration in 2013 and completed it in 2014. Since completion it only has been driven 335 miles.  A new binder with tons receipts and some restoration photos are included. He spared no expense on this build as the receipts indicate. The engine alone was over $25,000 as documented. This car is in show quality condition from top to bottom and has achieved a “Best in Show” award which is included. This car retains most of its original sheet metal and the body is straight with better then factory gap lines. The hood, doors and trunk close very nicely. The car was refinished in its original color of Sea Foam Green, which dresses it well. The paint has recently been detailed to a brilliant shine. The front windshield is new and the remaining glass is in very nice condition. Everything on the exterior has been restored or replaced such as the glass stainless trim, wiper arms, driver’s side mirror with Chevrolet logo, front grille with Chevrolet cross flags emblem, headlight bezels, four Sylvania halogen headlights, front bumper, door handles, rear taillight bezels and lenses, rear bumper and emblems. The car has a killer stance on painted 15” Smoothie wheels with chrome Rally center caps. The front wheels are 15x6 and the rear wheels are 15x8. The wheels are wrapped with BF Goodrich Silver Town Radial Redline tires that are 215-70-15 on the front and 235-70-15 on the rear. The fabulous interior of this car was completely restored and complements the exterior perfectly. The interior trim was professionally installed by Cottonwood upholstery in California.  It’s very spacious and comfortable, especially with the front bench seat.  The headliner and sun visors match the exterior color. The dash, steering column and steering wheel were painted a darker shade of green. The door panels and seats were reupholstered in a medium shade of green along with three colorful stripes. The Bel Air emblems on the dash and door panels add the extra touch of class. Everything in the interior has been restored or replaced such as the rear view mirror, speedometer, dash knobs, door handles, window cranks, door sills and carpeting. Some of the interior custom features include a blue dome light bulb, Stewart Warner gauges and RPM tachometer, black billet shifter, Mr. G gasket rubber boot, American Powertrain shift knob, custom carpeted front floor mats and a set of factory style rubber floor mats are included. The trunk compartment was restored and finished with the correct style paint. It has factory style trunks mats and a full size spare tire. The engine compartment is nicely detailed throughout with many upgrades. The firewall was painted Sea Foam Green and the rest was painted in satin black. The car is powered by a Merlin aluminum 540 V8 with an estimated 650HP that runs excellent. The engine block was ordered from well-known Bill Mitchell Products and the parts were ordered from well-known Shafiroff Race Engines. The engine was assembled by well-known Wood and Sons Drag Racing in California. The engine was built with the best of parts internally and externally. It’s equipped with Edelbrock Performer RPM 409 aluminum heads, LWA 690 Custom intake, custom pulleys, dual Quick Fuel Q-series carburetors and black custom air cleaner, black Chevrolet valve covers, Moroso crank case breathers, MSD programmable ignition system, Taylor Pro Race 490 wires, Holley HP billet fuel pump, Edelbrock Victor Series aluminum water pump, and custom hoses. The engine is cooled by an aluminum radiator with Flex-a-lite electric fan and billet overfill canister. The engine breathes through Sanderson ceramic headers and a custom 3” exhaust system with Performance Turbo mufflers that sounds awesome. Some other upgrades include a billet clutch reservoir, Wilwood master cylinder and Optima yellow top battery that was painted black. The engine is coupled to a new Tremec TKO 600 5-speed manual transmission with G-Force flywheel and high performance clutch that is easy to operate. The power is transferred to the new narrowed Ford 9” POSI rear end with Moser axles and 389 gears. The undercarriage is also nicely detailed throughout with many upgrades throughout. This undercarriage is nice enough to display with mirrors at a car show. The underside was painted body color with textured material for durability. The steering system, suspension system and braking system was completely gone through. Some upgrades include the front and rear sway bar, rear QA1 double adjustable trailering arms and SSBC four wheel disc brakes. This vehicle has been completely serviced and detailed which is documented with an invoice that is included. 

**PLEASE CONTACT MS CLASSIC CARS OWNER MARC SCHILIRO FOR A VERBAL DESCRIPTION OF THIS CAR**

***MS CLASSIC CARS only purchases number one and number two condition classic vehicles. We service and detail every vehicle unlike most classic vehicles that are currently being advertised for sale. MS CLASSIC CARS invested a total of $5,466.08 servicing and detailing this vehicle. This is documented with an invoice pictured below. We’re the only classic car dealership in the country that does this.  Please understand every vehicle needs something.  Some vehicles just need a lot more than others.  At MS CLASSIC CARS we take eliminate the surprises.  We’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking. ***



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!
