STK 2137 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air There is a book titled All
Corvettes are Red. Someone should write another and title it All
'57 Chevy BelAirs are Black. It is the right color. The designer of
this particular work of art knew exactly how to paint the canvas.
This outstanding frame-off restoration was completed for the
current owner, who has owned the car for the last 33 years. The
black finish is exemplary, the chrome flawless and the interior
stunning. From any angle, the lines of the classic '57 BelAir are
better than exellent. This BelAir sits just a little lower than the
original with period-correct Chevy Rally wheels and red-line tires.
Inside, the black leather interior is striking. The bucket seat
configuration with console looks like a factory design and the
leatherwork is faultless. The original BelAir steering wheel has
been replaced with a Z-28 wheel and a full set of custom analogue
gauges are mounted in the original dash. Enjoy the ride with A/C,
tinted power windows, tilt wheel, power driver seat and
AM/FM/CD/Changer stereo. Under the hood is a new RamJet/350/350
Fuel Injected crate motor along with a crate 700R automatic. As we
said before, this '57 looks good from any angle, even from below.
The chassis has been totally detailed and remains spotless. It
incorporates power steering, power disc/drum brakes, upgraded
suspension w/sway bars and a stainless exhaust attached to custom
tube headers. The stock differential contains 3.36:1 gearing. This
is an extraordinary '57 BelAir. Any one of us would be proud to be
the next owner of this machine. Call 800-650-1055 or visit

SOLD AS IS.

In 1958, I turned 16 and got my first car, a ’50 Chevy convertible my two older sisters had abandoned.
In the early 1970s, when I was 5 years old, my grandmother bought a ’71 Chevrolet Chevelle.
With Spring upon us I can’t help but daydream of road trips – those perfect moments when you don’t have a care in the world, the windows are down, and your favorite song is on the radio.
What fascinates me about the Chevrolet Bel Ai is not only how it became an iconic classic car but an American icon over the last 60-or-so years since it debuted as an everyday family car.
A couple of years ago I was attending the Turkey Rod Run in Daytona Beach.
What do you do if you have a beautiful, low-mileage ’55 Chevy with a crapped-out engine that wasn’t supplying enough power anyway?
