I was hoping that someone else would jump in with an ID, but I guess that's not going to happen.


This one is a 1954 Chevrolet Bel Air sedan. When I first saw it, I thought it might be the other side of Car #1, as the '53 and '54 have the same body and it's easy to interchange trim. After taking a closer look, though, it is a different car (outside mirrors were the key...). As with the first two cars, all the 'letter' script appears to have been removed from this one - kinda strange, in my estimation.

Since there are so many (either 2 or 3... ) Cappuccinos in the U.S., most of us have never seen one. The only reason I even knew about them was this article that appeared on Jalopnik back in 2009. It took me a while to find it. There have been a couple of short articles since then, but nothing in depth. The only other internet reference I could find was a page on Wikipedia:


Even with a turbocharger and intercooler, 100 HP out of 657 cc is pretty impressive. Do you autocross or rally it?


In any case - it's a nice car! I'm sure you have fun with it.

No Dave. I've had it since new and it gets a very easy life !

Still only done 24,000 miles.

Its has an Aluminum body and is very lightweight.

So even the low HP has an amazing power to weight ratio.

Red line on RPM is around 11,000 rpm and it flies up to 89mph.

Which is where the Maximum speed is electronically governed.

The metal roof fits into the trunk in 3 sections and the rear window drops down too.
