For Sale: 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air in Lithia Springs, Georgia

$59,995  

Vehicle Description

The 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air hardtop is a rolling icon. So the only way it can get better is when one has been given all the right investments. That means extra power and extra comfort on a two-tone coupe that never loses its vintage style.

It's hard to get more all-American than a '57 Bel Air hardtop. In fact the red with white roof had the iconic appeal of a Coca-Cola bottle. The paint has been part of this car's upgrades later in life, and so both colors give you the kind of shine that will get this coupe noticed from blocks away. There are some signs of enjoyment, because after all, this is really out to be a driver's classic. And you can really tell the overall level of respect it has received along the way by the details, like the good seals and the smooth operation of the big coupe doors. And of course, there's the brightwork that shows off the best icons of the time. The fan inserts to accentuate the tailfins; the trim that highlights the pillarless hardtop profile; and the 1957 car has the exclusive grille and bumper combo. There are great classic details, too, like the correct gold emblems for the premium Bel Air, and the addition of period-correct blue-dot taillights. Plus, the bright dual exhaust tips and 15-inch Rally wheels are subtle ways to announce this is an upgraded machine.

The first impression of the interior is a coupe that was nicely restored to stock. After all, the red and black seats feel fresh, and they are correct, right down to the cloth inserts, silver piping, and button-top presentation. The door panels are done to match. Plus, the black carpeting, red headliner, and smooth red dash complete this well-coordinated and high-quality presentation. But keen eyes will also spot the well-integrated upgrades that make this classic a better modern driver. There's a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner, upgraded speakers, front seatbelts, and provisions for R134a air conditioning (it likely just needs a recharge to blow ideally cold.) And the steering wheel has a classic look, but its smaller diameter with a nice grip, and it's mounted on a tilt column.

Under the hood is exactly what you want to see. The Tri Five Chevys introduced us to small block power, but this one maximizes it for modern times. It's a 350 cubic-inch V8 that has had a more recent rebuilt. It includes upgrades like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, carb spacer, Edelbrock Performer EPS intake, and Doug's headers feeding the upgraded full dual exhaust. We know this is the kind of classic you want to drive everywhere, and so they made it exceptionally easy. There's an aluminum radiator with an electric fan to help keep this full upgraded package running cool. Plus, you have a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide modern tires.

This is quite a thoughtful build of an amazing American icon. And if you hurry, it all can be yours for quite a nice price. Call today!!!
