For Sale: 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air has been upgraded with a show-worthy glow everywhere, including the engine bay! And with the custom interior, powerful V8, upgraded suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes, this hardtop is an extra-bold cruiser that's ready to be shown off everywhere.


This car is striking a balance between iconic classic and all-out hot rod, and the paint starts off this impression perfectly. The Sunset Pearl paint is a modern application with a terrific metallic glow. So you get both depth and radiance every time the sunshine finds the sheet metal. It will attract attention from blocks away in the daytime, and you'll even probably think it's neon at night. And when the paint is this radiant, you know that they also invested correctly to make sure the iconic brightwork matches its glimmer. So even on a stunning body like this, you still take note of hallmark fan-style tailfin, golden emblems special to these premium coupes, the trim that highlight the pillarless hardtop, and the bumper and grille combo that makes the '57 Bel Air so special. And because this one loves to be a show-worthy classic with an aggressive side, they perfectly matched these with polished Cragar SS wheels that have an extra meaty rear set for an extra intimidating stance.


The interior was redone with an eye for being thoughtful and comfortable. For example, we love the orange, but it would be too bold for the full treatment inside. So instead they gave you a tasteful tan cloth upholstery, and the exterior orange returns as a distinctive accenting in an ostrich texture on the custom seats and door panels. It's part of a full package that's so fresh and attractive that you'll roll down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop so that people will always get a good look inside. Of course, the best view is always from behind the wheel. This is set up to be a driver's classic with front bucket seats, a custom steering wheel on a tilt column, a full AutoMeter gauge package, and a B&M Quick Silver floor shifter. So while this has an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input, you really know your favorite soundtrack begins under the hood.


The exterior's metallic orange returns under the hood on the smooth inner walls, and it combines with all the polish on the motor for a show-ready presentation. And a motor like this is worth putting on display. The Tri-Fives launched the small block era at Chevrolet, but they were never offered anything nearly as potent as this. It's a 350 cubic-inch V8 with double-hump heads. There's a full Edelbrock suite that includes a four-barrel carburetor, EPS intake, finned valve covers, and a matching air grabber. It exhales with added power and authority as long tube headers feed the H-pipe dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. It's supported by the right pieces, like an MSD distributor and an aluminum radiator with an electric fan. As you look underneath, you'll spot some terrific upgrades for a driver's classic, like the tubular A-arm front suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes. Plus, there's a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and deep tread on the modern tires for an easy all-around driver.


Big investments in boldness and quality make an awesome icon. So you know you can't miss this Bel Air hardtop. Call today!!!
