1957 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210We purchased this 57 Chevy Bel Air intending to restore it, ut have not had time to get to it. It doesn't look like we'll be able to start it anytime soon, o we have decided to sell it. I have a clear title for it, ut it is not titled in my name, can have it titled in my name if the buyer wants that, r we can sign the title over to the new owner.
Its a pretty solid 57. It does have some rust around in a few places such as the seams around the quarter panels, ut for the most part everything is there and decent. Its got a little rust on the drivers side drip rail, ut I didnt really see a lot of external rust other than that. It'll need some patches and a few replacement panels, ut not nearly as much sheet metal as some 50's Chevys we looked at.
The previous owner had done a little restoration work. The fuel system is new from the gas cap to the carb. That's a new fuel tank and all fuel lines.
It also has new disk brakes up front along with a new master cylinder.
I'm not sure exactly which engine is in it, e've had a hard time decoding the numbers. It actually runs really strong, omeone has stuck a pretty junky 2 barrel carb and intake on it. The engine could be used as is with a little better carb setup. I've got a little video of it idling I can send via email.
I've driven the car a little on some side roads. It goes down the road ok. The tires are pretty much gone and only good for moving it around. It has a switch and button to start it with, he original wiring harness of the car is not hooked up.
Its got a clutch and 4 speed, ut it was an auto at one time. The trans seems ok, ut the shifter it has is no good and barely useable.
Someone stripped the interior out of it at one time and put what looks like some Camaro front and rear seats.
It wouldnt take a lot of work to put it back on the road if someone was looking for a rat rod project.
