Tall, flashy, and exceptionally fast: gassers are a cool unique era
in custom classics that command attention simply because they -
literally - tower over the other cars at the shows. You don't see
these often, especially done like this. But when you want to be
recognized even in a crowd of standouts, then you need a nicely
restored gasser made from an icon like this 1957 Chevrolet 210.
There was a restoration investment in this one possibly as little
as 1,600 miles ago and plenty of updates in the years since then.
It makes for the right mix of a bright and stylish icon that isn't
too fancy to hit the dragstrip on any Saturday night. In fact, it
really represents the gasser culture correctly. These were all
about shedding weight and transferring force to the rear wheels. So
it correctly has the front bumper removed, and in its place,
chromed welded camshafts that are lighter and look soooo much
cooler. With the high solid axle installed you get to showcase the
whole header package in the fenders and exhaust cutouts under the
front. The profile keeps plenty of the original Tri-Five Chevy
flair with bright sweeping side trim that ends in the upgraded Bel
Air fan-style insert. It makes a nice impression with details like
classic whitewalls, bright wheels, blue-dot taillights, and fender
graphics announcing this '57 is a "Fuelish Pleasure."
The interior continues the right gasser style which gives you a
competition-ready machine with a touch of custom fun. This starts
with the seats finished in pearl white. They carry a hint of
tuck-n-roll that's repeated on all the side panels and floor mat
inserts. Plus, the red accents on the doors, carpeting, dash, and
roll bar match the exterior for an overall thoughtful build.
Gassers are very custom machines, and this one lives up to that
heritage quite nicely. You see it in period-correct upgrades like
the Moon sweeping tach, toggle switches, Hurst shifter, and
metallic red steering wheel. And you'll also find some nice more
modern upgrades like the SunPro auxiliary gauges and polished tilt
The engine bay likes to be both stylish and powerful. You've got
plenty of polished components and an overall tidy style. But a real
gasser never takes itself too seriously, and so you'll spot details
like the beer can radiator overflow held in the finned alloy
holder. At the heart is a hardy 350 cubic-inch V8. And, go-fast
goodies have been added, including a Holley double-pumper
four-barrel carburetor, a Weiand Team G intake, aluminum heads, and
performance headers. You've already seen how great that last
feature looks through the wheel wells, but what you might not
notice is that the full dual exhaust exits under the car. This
allows the Flowmaster mufflers to give the V8 a nice tune, or you
can just open the electronic cutout covers for the ultimate roar. A
speedway-style front straight axle, ladder bar rear, power
steering, power, brakes, and front discs are good all-around
features. And we know you'll love the control of the Muncie
four-speed manual transmission.
This is the complete gasser package that grabs attention
everywhere, from the Sunday show, to the dragstrip. After all, you
have a shining '57 Chevy with the ultimate blacktop king attitude.
