SEMA Show 2015 is the year…by any measure you wish. The most exhibitors, exhibit cars and trucks, foot traffic…by any measure this is the year to be here. Well, if that’s the case then this is the year to be a car builder and have your goods on display for all to see.

One builder benefitting from this massive turnout is CAL Auto Creations and their presentation of a 1962 Chevy Bel Air bubbletop owned by Randy and Lisa Wilcox. At the center of this creation is the Chevrolet Performance LS-9, plenty of supercharged power for this Bel Air to pull the Art Morrison Enterprise chassis from rod run to rod run. Attached to the LS-9 is a TREMEC T-56 from Bowler Performance. Harnessing this power and getting it to the ground are Billet Specialties wheels wrapped with Toyo Tires.

There are a handful of custom metalwork modifications beginning with machined side trim, taillights, inner door handles, window cranks, and outer door handles. From here the bumpers, headlight bezels and grille are all custom from the shop of CAL Auto Creations. All of the brightwork was handled by Advanced Plating while the interior stitchwork is comes from the sewing machines at The Recovery Room. It’s hard to improve on the naturally pleasing lines of a 1962 Chevy, especially the bubbletop models, but this is one example of all enhancements actually do improve the cars already good looks.
