1957 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210
We 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 and trunk. but 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. The floor has had some patching done and I think most people would want to put a new trunk floor in it and possibly replace the main floor as well.
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 fairly well, omeone has stuck an older 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. The engine has headers and the exhaust is in good shape, he mufflers appear to be new.
I've driven the car a little on some side roads. It goes down the road ok, ut the wiring harness is not hooked up and it would need quite a bit of work to make it driveable. The left front tire wont hold air now. It has a switch and button to start it with, he original wiring harness of the car is not hooked up. The car does start and move now, ut I wouldnt consider it a driver.
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.
