For Sale: 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air in Lutz, Florida

$62,995  

Vehicle Description

Don't call it a wagon, because after all, the 1957 Chevrolet Nomad is one of the coolest grocery-getters of all time. This American icon only gets better with an upgraded small block V8, overdrive transmission, A/C interior, and a slick two-tone presentation against a ton of chrome.

The appeal of this Nomad is as clear as black and white...literally. The trim tag tells us this was born with the ultra-desirable Onyx Black and India Ivory two-tone. But it has been updated later in life with a modern clearcoat application and a professional hand applying it. So you have a luster that loves to show off the iconic curves every time the sunshine finds the sheetmetal. We especially like the way the brightwork looks. The '57 has a ton of icons. The big front end with the bumper and grille combo, dual rocket-like hood ornaments, golden Chevrolet emblems on this VC-code car, the full-length sweeping side trim with exclusive fan-style rear, and the Nomad's bright vertical slats over the hatch. They all have the kind of beautiful shine you want to go with the car's full bright attitude. And if you get up close, there's just a hint of patina that lets the classic cat folks know you have a true classic machine. Quality body lines, well-fitting doors, and pliable window rubber all drive home the feeling of Nomad that has been treated with the respect a rarity like this deserves.

The black returns inside, and now it's joined by a vivid red. The upholstery looks great with the classic textured fabric and button-top finish. It's joined by quality pieces on the loop carpeting, smooth dash, and seat-matching door panels for a quality look and feel. And this one really is a detail-oriented package, right down to the working dome light and clock. The rear section looks good with a rubber mat that makes it easy to use the rear for practical purposes. And the split rear hatch this is the classic that you'll love tailgating everywhere from car shows to sporting events. That's also why this one was built so that you can enjoy the drive better. You have well-integrated upgrades, like an AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette and cold-blowing modern R134a air conditioning.

We always like seeing small block power under the hood of a Tri-Five Chevy, because after all, these were the cars that introduced us to this versatile powerhouse. But keeping with this Nomad's theme of improvements, you now have a fresher and powerful 350 cubic-inch crate V8 under the hood. It's built with the right pieces, including a Holley four-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake, PerTronix Flame Thrower ignition, and a large electric pusher fan. It's a strong and versatile motor especially when paired with a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. Add in power steering, power brakes, front discs, and BF Goodrich T/As on iconic Cragar SS wheels, and this is Nomad has been upgraded to be an all-around driver.

This is the '57 Nomad that already has the right investments for speed, comfort, and style. It makes for a terrific driving classic that you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
