For Sale: 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This seriously slick 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air has been restored for those who love classic style but also true drivers. For example, you have modern features like four-wheel disc brakes and overdrive transmission. And the recently added fuel injection is the best way to get power and consistency from a classic small block V8. While the interior looks vintage, it has been upgraded with pieces like modern air conditioning. So dig deep into an icon that offers the best of everything.

This is the exact kind of car you've imagined cruising the streets in when you had the time/money to really build one right. The black has a deep and hard shine that tells you this is a quality modern application. It was part of the full restoration in 2013. So there may be a few signs of enjoyment today, but there's a quality that endures when they made sure the sheet metal was terrific so that the glossy black was looking its best. A great presentation is also on the brightwork, and let's face it, that's what makes the '57 Chevy such a legend. The full-length trim with fan-style rear, dual bullet-style hood ornaments, and gold anodized pieces told the world you had the top Bel Air. And it all looks awesome against the black. Plus, the full bumper/grille combo is a 10,000-watt smiling icon all on its own. Those Cragar SS wheels are a great way to look vintage while fitting nice and wide tires.

The black and gray interior has a great dark and bright contrast that feels like it almost mirrors the outside in both color and premium execution. The pattern on the seat inserts looks period-correct for this '57 Chevy, which always is attractive. This harmonizes with the door panels, dash, carpeting, headliner, and steering wheel to deliver a very well-coordinated classic. You can tell there has been money spent here. So it might have a vintage appearance, but everything feels quite fresh. As you look closer, you can see well-integrated upgrades like the movable armrest console and retro-style AM/FM/cassette stereo with aux input. There's even air conditioning blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant.

The dark black engine bay has an award-worthy smooth style that just seems to funnel your attention to all the polished pieces in the middle. And this motor is worth checking out. It's a 350 cubic-inch V8 that was rebuilt in 2015. So it keeps the Bel Air's tradition of a small block motor, but it's in a size larger than anything they offered in 1957. Plus, it's now topped with the best components for all-around performance thanks to an Edelbrock intake and an Edelbrock electronic fuel injection system. This kind of setup was built to be a true all-around driver. So you have the right supporting components, like a large aluminum radiator with electric fan (it can help keep this running cool even when you're in traffic with the A/C pumping.) The transmission was upgraded to a 700R4 unit that's stout to handle the power and provides easy overdrive cruising. You even have rack & pinion power steering and four-wheel power disc brakes to really enjoy this classic to the fullest.

Here's the hit of every cruise-in that also has the components to make it ready for the Power Tour. It's the kind of Bel Air that you've always wanted, and if you're quick enough, your reward is ready. Call today!!!
