Ringo Starr's Custom 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Up for Auction

Saturday, January 18, 2014

In fact, what you're about to see below is probably one of the coolest custom cars ever built. The 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.

Fitted with a flaming hood, the black coupe also sports a set of Cragar-style wheels 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. The reason we're reporting about this unique Bel Air is because it's scheduled to cross the block on February 7 in Paris, during an event hosted by Artcurial Motorcars. The Chevy, which also comes with a certificate of authenticity 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).
