Presenting the epitome of The Classic Chevy! The most loved and most widely recognized Iconic American Car ever...
When you walk up to one of the most collectible post war cars ever made, you'll feel a special kind of pride. Pride that comes from knowing that this Incredible machine was designed and created with American ingenuity and built by hand back before computers and robots took over the car building industry.
Her Stunning Imperial Ivory exterior has been refinished with an OEM Single Stage Acrylic Urethane to give outstanding gloss, depth, chemical resistance and durability. She has been Garage Kept and hasn't seen rain since she was purchased 10 years ago.One look at this beauty will have you grinning ear to ear. Haven't you always loved those '57 hood wind splits? Pop open her hood to find one heck of an attractive original looking engine bay. Walk around to her rear and gently run your fingers along her rear fins capped with chrome moldings and highlighted with the unmistakably '57 anodized aluminum side trim panels. Just imagine seeing this Classic American Masterpiece parked in your garage. If you prefer the stock look, you will love this beauty. Keeping an original appearance was the main focus on her Frame-Off Restoration. Her engine is the correct size 283cu.in. V8, but it is from a 1966 Chevelle. Her OE air cleaner is mounted on a Rochester 2 Jet 2GV Carburetor which is mounted on an adapter connecting her to a Holley 4bbl Intake Manifold. She has classic "Power Pack" Cylinder Heads, 2.5" Rams Horn Exhaust Manifolds and an updated Dual Exhaust to increase her horsepower. Her Alternator is made to look stock with a Power Master Generator cover. Her Blower Motor is original. Her Radiator and hoses are stock style. Even her battery is the stock style. The only parts that show that her engine bay has been updated are her Power Assist Brakes and a reservoir tank.
Now walk around to the Driver's door. Lightly push that little button on the door with your thumb and feel how easily she opens up to welcome you inside. Her Red and White interior is Spacious and Comfortable. Slide smoothly into her original driver's seat that has been freshly upholstered in a vibrant Red vinyl.As you gently grasp her new classic style steering wheel, let your eyes wander to her Original Instrument Pods. Her Instrumentation is original with the exception of a modern Stuart Warner water temperature gauge under her dash. She has her original Vent/Heat/Defroster controls and a Chevy Classic FM/AM Cassette Stereo set into her Torch Red dash with correct dash panel insert.
Turn her key in the ignition to hear her freshly rebuilt 283 V8 engine rumble to life. Shift her rebuilt THM 350 into gear and get ready to enjoy a smooth ride. She shifts cleanly and handles beautifully. This timeless beauty actually handles better than new and in 1957 the Bel Air was Award Winning for Handling and Maneuverability! The '57s remarkable handling is due to the factory placing the engine behind the centerline of the front wheels. Her engine placement combined with her Saginaw Steering box, Power Assisted Disc front brakes with Solid Steel Rotors, Low Slung chassis, a correct non-positraction 10 bolt Rear End with 3.08:1 axle ratio, Front Glide-Ride Spherical Joint design with Coil-Over shocks, and rear "Outrigger" Leaf Springs with Max-Air shocks make this baby an absolute Joy to drive!EQUIPMENT & SPECIFICATIONS: ENGINE: 283cu.in.

The additional advantage of having the last double lined trunk, coupled with a strong frame, made it a surprisingly common winner in the demolition derbies during the late 1960s and early 1970s. There is no denying that inside and out the '57 Chevy Bel Air Hard Top Coupe is a highly collectible, Iconic American Masterpiece.
