Up for sale in our Houston showroom is a stunning 1957 Chevy Bel Air. This is a fantastic show car that can also be a daily driver if you desired because it will make you smile every time you leave your driveway. The frame off restoration was completed in 2014 and it looks like one of highest quality builds we have seen. ***LOOK AT THE UNDER CARRIAGE OF THIS CAR!!!! BEAUTIFUL!!** Not a spec of rust.. This Bel Air has a brand new 350 CiD V8 Crate Motor with a "Thumper Series" Cam and a period-correct Muncie 4 speed manual transmission. The engine only has 80 miles since its installation and is nicely appointed with lots of chrome and braided hoses. The car has a true dual exhaust that sounds amazing in cruise mode, and even better when you unleash the beast on the streets. This beauty is bathed in silver metallic paint outside, contrasting nicely with its beautiful blue dash and upper doors inside, which frame out the gray seating surfaces, further enhancing the look of the interior. There's a custom Grant steering wheel attached to its tilt steering column, and the dash has all the original gauges, plus an extra 3 gauge console, and right in the middle there, is a nice upgraded stereo system that drives a pair of speakers in the parcel shelf, and a thumping set of subs in a custom enclosure in the trunk. The body of this beauty is gorgeous, with fresh chrome from bumper to bumper including all of the trim pieces. On all four corners you will find a new set of chromed Foose Wheels that look like they were built for this car. With two car shows under its belt, this silver beauty has taken home �Best in Show" at both events. This is a true show car in every way, yet it's dependable to drive anywhere, anytime. This beauty also has air conditioning, power steering and power brakes so you will enjoy cruising in it year round. To see more of this car, visit it on our website at www.GatewayClassicCars.com, where you'll find more pictures of it, and an HD video of it in operation. If you want to see it in person, you'll find it in our Houston Showroom. Please call our showroom at 832-243-6220 or email us at Houston@gatewayclassiccars.com for more information.

In 1958, I turned 16 and got my first car, a ’50 Chevy convertible my two older sisters had abandoned.

With Spring upon us I can’t help but daydream of road trips – those perfect moments when you don’t have a care in the world, the windows are down, and your favorite song is on the radio.
What fascinates me about the Chevrolet Bel Ai is not only how it became an iconic classic car but an American icon over the last 60-or-so years since it debuted as an everyday family car.
