Description
 
1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Fuelie Convertible. 283 bhp, 283 cu. in. fuel-injected OHV V-8 engine, three-speed manual transmission, coil spring independent front suspension, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 115" • America’s favorite collector car • Rare 283-bhp fuel injection engine • Show-quality restoration American car designs ran in three-year cycles. Typically, by the third year the car was in dire need of freshening. The 1957 Chevy was the exception that disproved the rule. The whole car was lowered through a combination of smaller wheels and body modifications, and the nose and tail were updated with Cadillac cues, resulting in a baby Eldorado of sorts. The V-8 was bored an eighth of an inch to 283 cubic inches, available in six stages of tune. At the top of the chart was the Corvette V-8 with 10.5:1 compression. Rochester fuel injection developed the magic one horsepower per cubic inch. Four-speed transmissions had yet to reach Chevrolet’s passenger car option list, so the sole transmission choice for this engine was a column-shifted heavy-duty three-speed. This 1957 fuelie convertible was the subject of a correct, frame-off restoration to show-quality standards done by well respected experts Legendary Motorcars of Canada. The option list is short: a pushbutton AM radio, whitewall tires with spinner hubcaps, E-Z-Eye tinted glass, heater-defroster and a dashboard clock. The odometer reads just 121 miles since restoration. The car exhibits extraordinary panel fit, a clean and highly-detailed engine compartment and equally impressive undercarriage. The black convertible top fits well, and the car comes with reproduction copies of the owner’s handbook and manual for the top. An excellent example of one of America's favorite collector cars, it is ready to delight a new owner. This is how a car should look like when finished in black, extremely straight body. Ready to be shown any where.
