For sale in our Detroit showroom is a nostalgic 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air. Arguably the best design for the Bel Air, is the 1957 model year which is truly an example of iconic American design that took the 1950's by storm. The unmistakable rear fins on this Bel Air are capped with chrome moldings and highlighted with anodized aluminum trim that separates this second generation Bel Air's from all the other models. This 1957 Chevy Bel-Air is a numbers matching car with only having 49 miles since being rebuilt and as you will notice the pristine condition of this car inside and out. Powering this 1957 Bel Air is the numbers matching 283CID V8 which gives this 50's classic plenty of power and a very hearty rumble. This small block V8 is paired to a Powerglide Transmission that helps translate the power to pavement. This 1957 Chevy has an incredible shine with new paint in a bright Red color with white accents retaining the originality that the car has had since the 50's. The interior of this Bel Air is a very classy Onyx Black and Red wrapped in both vinyl and cloth. The Bel Air is a blast to drive thanks to its originality and the looks that you get from nearly all of the passers by, and the way that the car handles having such low mileage since over $100,000 was spent on a full nut and bolt restoration. This beauty rests on its original wheels wrapped in double belted white wall style radial tires. The 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air is the last of a dying breed and this is your chance to hold on to a piece of American automotive history.
