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

Vehicle Description

This custom hardtop Resto-Mod is the result of a three-year project. It is a professional complete frame-off rotisserie build presented by DT Classics. It started with rust-free metal fitted meticulously to form a perfect look and then painted with a custom PPG Burgundy metal flake paint with a touch of gold trim. Next the body was mated to an Art Morrison GT Sport frame along with a complete Art Morrison suspension, starting with a Street Performance High-Tec power steering reservoir that feeds the Art Morrison rack & pinion power steering. The Pro-Touring suspension is stabilized with Strange Engineering adjustable coilover shocks. It is finished off with a mini-tub to fit the 4-link rear suspension holding the narrowed Ford 9-inch rear end with a pair of Daystar traction bars. Finally, the frame was finished off with front and rear sway bars along with a 4-wheel Wilwood hydroboost-assisted 6-piston disc brakes set up with drilled and slotted rotors. This build is powered by a ZZ572/620hp Deluxe GM Performance crate engine with the GM Performance intake manifold topped off with a Demon carburetor and fed from an aluminum gas tank. The engine is not only built to go but built for show with all polished accessories, including a Chevy serpentine belt system, and comes with tight tubes, Headman headers and a 3-inch Aero stainless exhaust. The 572ci engine stays cooled by a C&R Racing aluminum radiator with dual electric SPAL fans and everything is connected with a Ron Francis wiring system. This powerhouse is hooked to a 6-speed TREMEC T56 manual transmission with a hydraulic clutch and a custom-built Grant shifter. The build is finished off with the perfect stance on a set of staggered Intro wheels (front 18-inch with 225/40 ZR 18 and 19-inch rear) with 345/30 ZR 19 rear Michelin tires. A keyless entry opens up an incredible all-leather interior with ostrich inserts built on a set of Wise Guys custom buckets with lumbar support, 6-way adjustable power and heated seats. The Ididit tilt steering column and one-off Nardi Torino custom steering wheel finished in gold and rosewood flow nicely into a custom-built dash holding the VDO Instrument gauges. Next is the custom center console and power windows, and to finish off this interior design is a vintage-style Custom Autosound digital radio and sound system powered by a hidden amplifier located with the battery in the trimmed and finished matching trunk. Keeping it all cool is Southern Classic air conditioning with a Street & Performance compressor and custom vents cut into the dash.
