For sale in our St. Louis showroom is an iconic, award winning 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible. I will go ahead and say this; no manufacturer will ever make a convertible as pleasing as this again. 1957 was the last year of the second generation body style for the Bel Air. It seems as if they stopped because they knew it couldn't get any better. In '57, Chevrolet introduced the 283 CID V8 engine that produced 283 HP. The option of a fuel injected engine was available and is quite rare these days. This Bel Air offers 220HP 4-Barrel carbureted 283 V8 engine that is backed by an automatic transmission. Both are numbers matching and original to the car. The odometer reads 2,843, which represents the mileage since the frame off restoration was complete. Boasting its original colors, the Chevy shows beautifully in gloss black and is surrounded by chrome. Looking inside the red and silver interior takes you right back to the 50s. Have a seat, turn the key, and operate the automatic convertible top switch and you'll be wondering why haven't you done this before? The red and silver vinyl interior is paired well with a white convertible top. Options for this 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible include: Wonderbar AM Radio, Two Tone Vinyl Interior, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Antenna, Tissue Dispenser, Flameout Vacuum Ashtray, Wide White Wall Bias Ply Tires, and Knock-Off Style Hub Caps. The '57 Chevy is one of the most recognized icons in the Automotive industry. Stylish and Sporty the there's no doubt that it's one of America's best and most loved cars. This 57' Bel Air convertible was awarded the VCCA 1st Place Junior Gold Award in 2011, where it scored 984 out of a possible 1000 points. In 2012 it was awarded the AACA Senior National 1st prize and the People's Choice award at the Concours d' Elegance in Hilton Head Island, SC. Here's the chance of owning a piece of American history that still serves a purpose. Put on the white rimmed sunglasses and enjoy.
