1957 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210

Not everyone has a Belair! That’s why I bought this car. This car has been my passion since I bought it in 1996. I started on it in 1998 and finished it in 2004 6 years later. Below is mostly all of the info I can recall and I have all receipts. Car is garage kept.

Note small paint issue at RS hood about 1" as shown in photo. Also small chip on RS door as shown in photo. You have to look close center of photos.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this car for the 11 years and even working on it for 6 years prior. It is not a perfect concourse national show car but a very very nice turn key car to drive and enjoy.
