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
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
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!!!
