For Sale: 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

This 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air is your ultimate cruiser. It takes the ultra-desirable hardtop body and presents it with a bright style to show off all the classic curves and accessories. They thoughtfully restored it with upgraded V8 power, an A/C interior, and other details to make it a great driver. So it's the kind of coupe that has been restored to be easier to take more places, and it's impressive everywhere it arrives.

You can tell this car has been treated with long-term care. In fact, it's more like an heirloom. This was passed down from grandfather to grandson, and he had a full restoration done in 2006. And ever since then it has been treated with the best care. That's why the period-correct Matador Red continues to have an award-worthy finish that will make many other classic cars jealous. It has a deep shine that highlights all the best curves of the sheet metal. And the Bel Air's hallmark full-length trim runs through the doors like an unbroken line just to highlight the level of quality in the panels. There's mirror-like chrome to showcase the iconic front end, gold anodized trim to show off a premium Chevy, and everything looks correct, right down to wide whitewall tires. And because this classic still loves to be a boulevard cruiser, it has all the period-correct accessories, like rear fender skirts, dual aerials, and a continental kit on the rear.

The interior continues the thoughtful vintage style. Plush carpets, a smooth dash, bright trim, and a taut headliner all look fantastic. And we love the hallmark detailed upholstery with textured cloth inserts, and the door panels are done to match. It feels like a pure vintage atmosphere, right down to the stoplight viewer on the dash. But then you notice some very well-integrated upgrades. For example, the steering wheel looks vintage, but it's a smaller diameter unit for a better sport feel (the factory one also comes with the sale.) There's also a retro-style AM/FM stereo with cassette, front seatbelts, and CD changer, and a removable center console for a more comfortable cruiser. And there's no better feeling than when you're driving around with all the windows down on this pillarless hardtop with the air conditioning contributing to the breezes for the ideal comfortable temperature.

While the exterior and interior are proudly vintage, the engine bay makes sure the upgrades take center stage. The clean inner walls funnel your attention to the polished components and bold orange valve covers with a modern Chevrolet script. Not only is this 350 cubic-inch V8 larger than any of the small blocks offered in the Tri Five era, but this also has a Holley four-barrel carburetor and an Edelbrock dual-plane aluminum intake. The mild cam gives this quality power, and at the same time, it adds a nice tune to the H-pipe dual exhaust and glasspack mufflers. It's a strong runner with nice supporting components, like an electric fan and an MSD ignition. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes w/front discs are all part of a solid cruising package.

This is the kind of total package of style and substance you were always hoping to have on a true American icon. So if you want to drive the best, call today!
