This car's nickname is "The Hulk." That's because beneath the
mild-mannered appearance of an iconic 1957 Chevrolet 150 coupe lies
a 502 cubic-inch beast of a motor. So as you look over all the
custom interior and exterior, don't forget to checkout signs of the
The exterior is all about the second glance. Because at first sight, you're going to love glancing at the most iconic shape from the Tri-Five Chevy era. It looks fantastic in a period correct light blue and white two-tone. And all the brightwork has a 10,000-watt smile that tells you there has been a serious investment here recently. This includes the hallmark grille, side trim that divides the two colors, and the intricate rear bumper. But then you start to notice some far more aggressive touches, like the shaved emblems, ultra wide rear tires, and the custom tail section. It's right about now you realize that this Hulk can get angry.
Your first glance inside just sees a thoughtful amount of work for a cool custom interior. The exterior two-tone continues inside with modern leather bucket seats, center console, door panels, headliner, dash, and even the trunk all custom configured to continue the blue and white theme. It's the kind of uniform appearance that will win awards all on its own. Plus, there are great modern upgrades like the custom chrome and blue steering wheel, as well as the AM/FM/CD stereo w/aux input. But then you see the auxiliary gauges, the big tach mounted high on the dash, and the B&M Pro Stick Shifter. It all lets you know there is a lot of power waiting to be unleashed.
When you open the hood, you should immediately recognize the monster 502 cubic-inch crate motor that's filling the tidy engine bay. And for those who don't, the custom Hulk graphic on the underside of the hood will instantly let them know how big and bad this V8 really is. The motor looks nice with the bright valve covers and air topper sharing the same etched pattern. But just like the Hulk, beneath the surface is a monster force. Not only is the big block rated for huge power right out of the box, but this also has a Holley four-barrel carburetor and headers that feed the Hulk-worthy growling dual exhaust. Getting all this power to the streets is a TH400 three-speed automatic that is stout enough to bang your on way through the gears if you want. That feeds a 12-bolt rear end running a 3.55 ratio for good all-around performance. And those huge Hoosier Pro Street 31x16.5 tires in the tubbed rear end love gripping the asphalt. In fact, this Chevy is said to consistently hit the 1/8 mile in 8.7 seconds. And there are even disc brakes to tame this beast.
You wouldn't like The Hulk when he's angry...unless you're behind the wheel. So hurry before you have to face this beast on the streets. Call today!!!
