$59,995

Vehicle Description

The 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air is iconic not only for its styling, but also for being part of the Tri-Five family that launched the legendary small block V8. So when you can find a recently restored example that showcases all the best of the small block's performance and flair, you know you've found a special restromod.


This coupe grabs all the right attention. The two-tone yellow and white follow the original Chevy color palette, but it now takes advantage of modern clearcoat shine. And the investment in this one went far more than just great paint. You know a Bel Air by its acres of chrome and stainless trim, and thankfully all is present on this coupe. It includes the wide grille and bumper package with Dagmars as large as the headlights; the rocket trim on the hood that signified the jet age; the full-length body trim that ends in the iconic bright tailfins; and the brightwork that surrounds every window and flows from the passenger compartment right into the rear bumper. These are reasons why we all love the icon, but this hardtop has something more to offer. Those 17-inch torque thrust-style alloys filling the wheel wells are a clear indication this classy classic has some performance chops.


Inside, the custom leather interior takes the exterior colors and adds a supple black to the mix. More than just a great color coordinating package, the tri-color interior takes advantage of the '57 hardtop's cool dip in the doorline to set the pattern on the seats, too. The result is a full uniform appearance that let's everyone know you have a very thoughtful build. It's so nice that all your family and friends will want to go for a ride. That's why this comes with comfortable features such as ice-cold air conditioning, cup holders, and an AM/FM radio that looks period-correct but has an aux input for your iPod. But this car was built to reward the driver the most. You get a modern machined aluminum steering wheel styled in a classic design, and beyond that, a Classic Instruments setup w/tach keeps you fully informed without ruining the vintage appearance. And if that wasn't enough to convince you there is something special under the hood, the Hurst shifter in your right hand will.


You might want to grab your sunglasses before looking into the engine bay. As the car that helped launch the small block, this Bel Air celebrates its heritage with a fully custom built 350 cubic-inch V8. With the alternator, master cylinder, piping, pulleys, compressor, hood springs, and so much more presented a mirror shine, we dare you to find another component that needs polishing. Even the air grabber, valve covers, and oil pan have been custom painted to also coordinate with the bold yellow engine bay. But while the appearance is award-worthy, once you look beyond the gloss, you'll see the substance of a performance small block. This includes a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and a set of electric cutouts on the dual exhaust that will let everyone hear this mean yellow machine's growl. And you are in complete control of the sound and the fury thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. But this is more than just a total performance build. It has thoughtful components like the Be Cool aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans so this enhanced V8 stays cool even when you're in traffic with the A/C running. Plus upgrades like power steering, newer suspension components, front disc brakes, and modern performance tires, give this restomod a fantastic feeling on the road.


With less than 2,300 miles on the build, as well as supporting documents like build receipts and maintenance records, this is the classic that leaves you wanting for nothing and captivates upon arrival. Something this unique won't be available for long. Call today!!!
