For Sale at Auction: 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air in Scottsdale, Arizona

Auction Vehicle  

Vehicle Description

Redesigned for 1957, the Bel Air was an instant smash hit and was the Bowtie brand's number-one-selling model accounting for over 10 percent of total Chevrolet production. The 1957 model owed nothing to the previous year, with its sculpted front fenders, distinctive chrome headlights and wide-look front grille. This Onyx Black hardtop is in great condition - restored to exacting standards - and is a great representation of the one-year-only body style. The now famous '57 Chevrolet tailfins were designed to duplicate the new wide-look in the rear and include the V-shaped trim filled with a ribbed aluminum insert exclusive to the Bel Air. Bel Air models also stood apart with their anodized gold trim that included the Chevrolet script hood and trunk emblems as well as the fender chevrons. The recipient of a comprehensive frame-off restoration, every inch of this full-size Chevrolet has been lovingly refinished. The laser-straight body work accentuates the chrome molding and trim, which is all complete. Also, the spinner hubcaps look just right with the wide whitewall tires. Under the hood is the date-code-correct Chevrolet 283ci fuel-injected V8 engine producing a stout 283hp connected to the 3-speed manual transmission. The Bel Air cruises down the road with its smooth-riding full-frame design. The high-quality restoration can be seen everywhere - even the undercarriage of the Chevrolet is fully detailed with all the correct parts and finishes. Inside the Chevrolet is a redesigned for 1957 dashboard, finely detailed with end-to-end chrome trim that complements the curvaceous interior cabin. The Bel Air is equipped with distinctive options such as a Continental kit, fender skirts with stone guards, dual rear antennas, EZ-Eye glass and a dash-mounted traffic light viewer. From the Raser Collection.
