1957 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210
In 1957, a two-page Chevrolet magazine ad proclaimed that 'Chevy puts the purr in performance'. This Bel Air Convertible, with 283 hp, 283 cid small block V8 equipped with two 4-barrel carburetors and a fuel injecton option, was a wonder of its time, and it certainly delivered on the promise made in the ad.
Stylish and Sporty, the Bel Air is one of many now-classic cars adored by millions of people around the world. Its image and likeness have been used over and over again in toys, graphics, music, movies and television. It has become one of the most desirable and collectable post-war cars of all and an icon for a generation. Chevrolet produced 47,000 Bel Air convertibles in the 1957 model year, but very few are in a good condition as this example.
The 1957 Chevrolet was a carry-over from 1955, when Chevrolet introduced its now-famous small-block V-8—the first V-8 available in a Chevrolet since 1918. Prior to 1955, Chevrolet only offered an inline 6-cylinder engine. This car comes with an additional upgrade, a Super Turbo-Fire 283, which produces the advertised 283 horsepower with the help of Ramjet continuous-flow fuel injection.
What’s special about this year’s model?
Ed Cole, chief designer for Chevrolet at the time, dictated a series of changes that significantly increased the cost of the car. These changes included a new dashboard, reshaped windshield, sealed cowl, and the relocation of air ducts to the headlight pods, which resulted in the distinctive chrome headlight that helped make the '57 Chevy a classic. Fourteen-inch wheels replaced the fifteen-inch wheels from previous years to give the car a lower stance, and a wide grille was used to give the car a wider look from the front. The now famous '57 Chevy tailfins were designed to duplicate the wide look in the rear. Bel Air models were given gold trim: the grille, front fender chevrons, hood, and trunk script were all rendered in anodized gold. The V-shaped trim on the tail fins was filled with a ribbed aluminum insert exclusive to the Bel Air.
1957 was the first year that Chevrolet ever offered fuel injection as an option. A 283 in³ engine fitted with solid lifters and fuel injection was rated at 283 hp. Solid lifters were designed to allow the engine to achieve higher RPMs. The fuel injection continued as an option throughout the early 1960s.
This particular car is in IMMACULATE shape! It has been fully restored to its former splendor.
