One of the most recognizable classics ever made has to be the 1957
Chevrolet. These are a staple at every car show and the poster car
for 50s automobiles. They will always be popular so make a great
addition to any collection. This clean 57 is in great shape and
done in a more restomod style. It is originally a 210 but the
Matador Red paint has been topped off with new BelAir trim. All of
the chrome and stainless is in excellent shape throughout. The
glass is in good shape as well and up front is fitted with polished
wipers with a hidden electric motor. The lights are all working
properly with no issues. The car rides on nice 17 inch American
Racing Torq Thrust wheels and Fuzion ZRi tires.
Under the hood is a nicely built 350 motor that runs great. It has
been fitted with a mild cam, aluminum intake, 650 cfm Demon
carburetor, roller rockers, a HEI distributor, and ram horn exhaust
manifolds into dual exhaust. It is also show ready with nice chrome
accents and matching finned air cleaner and valve covers. The car
runs nice and cool with a new aluminum radiator and electric fan.
Paired with the engine is a Turbo 350 transmission that sends power
through the new balanced driveshaft to an original 57 rear end. the
front brakes have been converted to disc and all are power. It also
has power steering making it a very comfortable classic to cruise
around in. Other nice features include a red top Optima battery and
Lokar transmission dipstick.
The interior is done in a more modern Black and Gray combination
that looks great. It has dual bucket seats and custom door panels.
The dash is done in a stock style and everything looks good. An
underdash Old Air AC system has been added which blows cold. A
second gauge cluster was also added for oil/temp/amp gauges and the
factory gauges have been rebuilt. It also has a Sun tachometer
added to the Ididit tilt column. The stereo is an Autosound
AM/FM/Casette player. On the floor is a Lokar shifter which moves
through the gears smoothly. The trunk of the car is nicely finished
out with a Black mat and the spare tire well has been filled
This nice 57 Chevy has a lot going for it and is a great
