The design of the 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air is pure 1950s - straight
out of Harley Earl's GM styling department, and complete with
gun-sight hood ornaments, extensive chrome and, of course, those
fins. These cars were the cruisers of choice - stylish, fast and
affordable. This Chevrolet 210 was custom ordered with performance
in mind and features one of the most fabled powerplants of the era.
To best the competition Chevrolet had a few aces up its sleeve for
1957, when the automaker released the Rochester-produced mechanical
fuel-injection system its engineers had been secretly working on.
Under the hood of this sedan is that legendary 283ci fuel-injected
V8 engine that produces a solid 250hp. A recipient of a
comprehensive full frame-off restoration in 1999, this Onyx Black
210 2-door post is in great condition and refurbished with all its
factory components. The original engine was painstakingly rebuilt
and believed to be one of the less than 1,000 passenger car Fuelies
produced in 1957. The under-hood compartment has had every surface
refinished and incorporates the famed Chevy Orange paint and
distinctive insignia valve covers. The power is put to the pavement
via the close-ratio column-shifted 3-speed manual transmission and
BFGoodrich Silvertown blackwall tires adorned with factory steel
wheels and poverty hubcaps. Inside the cabin is a bare-bones
interior featuring two-tone silver and black upholstery and
spacious bench seating. The factory black vinyl floor covering
continues the no-nonsense theme, as well the fact that the car was
ordered as a radio-delete model. From the Raser Collection.
