VIN Decode: V - V8 B - years 55-57, Series 2100, Model type: 210 57 - Year 1957 A - Assembled in Atlanta, GA 181954 - Sequence Number Description: One of the most iconic cars ever built is the 1957 Chevy Belair and 210 models. This body style appeals to more age groups than any car we've seen, from the younger crowd to the older ones. This beauty has undergone one of those deep-pocket six-figure builds! Every nut and bolt, every panel, every part, has been touched, restored, replaced, upgraded, changed out, etc... you get my point. There doesn't seem to be any expense spared that we can find. We have two booklets of receipts for this incredible build, one booklet is dedicated to the engine and the other to the components and instructions for them that were used for this 210's crazy build. We've shown you in our photo section, three copies of the paperwork on the engine build. A stroker built 427 dart block motor, pushing 500 horse power is what pushes this 210 down the highway (quickly if needed), with a smooth shifting Tremec 5-speed trans, and a Ford 9 inch rear-end to transfer all that power to the pavement. This car has a great feel and incredible sound coming from the well-built exhaust system. The exterior and interior follow along with the rest of this beautiful build. Our pictures are really going to tell the story on this one, and if you invest the time to come out and see it for yourself, you'll find it's way better in person than in these killer pictures we took. Every ounce of chrome and stainless trim just gleams at you, and the interior was also well done. Any sort of write up isn't going to tell the story any better than a great set of photos. So feast your eyes on this one, from the top to the underside, engine bay, and interior - it's a serious show stopper anywhere you'd take it. We have seen our fair share of 57's roll through our doors at Custom Classics, this one is the best of the 2017 season in my opinion! Any buyer would NOT be disappointed having this one in their garage. Don't let a quick buyer snatch this one up before you get a chance to take a look. If you've been trying to make up your mind on purchasing one of America's favorite love-affair cars... don't delay on this one, it's quite an exciting build you won't want to miss out on!
