1957 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 Better Than New Condition
You are bidding on ONE-OF-THE-BEST, ALL ORIGINAL 1957 Chevy Bel Air Hardtops in the country! This 24-year Nut-&-Bolt restoration will leave you speechless. She is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!
The owner purchased this rustfree, all original 283ci, auto Bel Air in Mesquite, Texas in 1980 with 60K miles. She then was immediately parked and the restoration started. The owner (a GM mechanic for 20+ years) performed ALL the restorations himself. After 24 years of very hard work and great attention to detail she was completed to “BETTER-THAN-NEW” condition! If he had not done the work himself this restoration would have cost over $100,000. It is easily worth $65k in today's market. However, he is an older gentleman and his lifestyle has changed. He needs to sell and is willing to come down considerably from that number to complete the sale.
95% of the car is the ORIGINAL parts it was born with!
In 2005 at a Nationally-Judged show, this Chevy scored 961 points out of 1,000 and won Best 1957 Chevy! Yes, it’s just that NICE!
This Bel Air Sport Coupe has only 1,649 miles on her since the restoration was completed in 2004. She has mainly been stored since the 2005 Show in a heated garage. She still looks better than new! No disappointments here!
You want the BEST? This is the one you want to own!
This is a rare classic car with V8, Automatic Transmission and a reserve to protect some of its value. If the reserve is not met we will work with the high bidder to complete the sale. Bid retractions are not accepted. Retracting your bid for an incorrect amount without entering a corrected amount is a clear attempt to reveal the Reserve as well as a violation of eBay policy. We block bidders who violate this policy and also report the violation to eBay.
This car is being relisted. Please have all of your financing in order prior to bidding. We will not refund your deposit if your financing falls through.
The Body is absolutely 100% rock solid, original GM metal! Fenders, doors, quarters, etc are all the original factory pieces. The body had only 62,646 miles before restoration was started (as per original Ohio title from 8/4/80). Only 1,649 babied miles have been put on since.
The body is super straight with “show-quality, factory-style paint job” in the original (810) India White/Larkspur Blue colors. Paint is in excellent condition with no issues other than a very minor chip by the windshield. There is a small amount of touch up paint that comes with the car. A paint-matching spray–out card and the paint formula are included.
The condition of the chrome and brite work is just Beautiful!
All the glass has been replaced with “Date Coded” pieces.
All the doors, windows, hood and trunk open effortlessly.
The Two-tone Interior is completely restored to “FACTORY” condition and exact (672) colors. All dash lights, gauges, clock and the Wonder Bar radio work.
The Drivetrain is the original, numbers-matching units it was born with. All the driveline was completely overhauled (motor, trans, rearend, brakes, fuel and electrical charging systems). The 283ci/220hp 4-barrel engine was bore, 030 and rebuilt using all GM parts. This Little Mouse runs great, drives smoothly and has no issues! The Powerglide transmission operates and shifts like new. This gem runs, stops, steers and rides like new!
The Undercarriageis in factory “DRESS” appearance with all the correct colors, fasteners and paint markings. Frame was completely stripped and restored. Factory stamp and number marks are easily visible.
The Factory exhaust system is an original style but made in stainless.
The correct 7.50x14 white wall tires are in great condition with no aging issues.
Car cover included
Car comes with one set of factory keys
Clear Ohio title
I realize that it is difficult to purchase a vehicle you may not be able to inspect in person. I build vehicles too – so I try to show you everything I would want to see if I was buying a vehicle for myself. As you can see by my feedback (100% positive), I describe my vehicles accurately. I have sold other vehicles on eBay to happy buyers worldwide so you can be confident when making a purchase.
This description includes a video (the first picture should have a “Play” arrow on it). The video may not play on all mobile phones. Please view it on your computer if it doesn’t play on your cell phone.
I have made my best effort to accurately represent the car based on my expertise as a vehicle builder, what I have observed in evaluating it and preparing it for sale, and what I have been told by the owner, but this is the extent of my knowledge. Please ask questions before bidding! This is being solid AS IS with no warranty or guarantees and is up to the buyer to verify any and all info listed above in the description! This vehicle is also for sale locally. You are welcome to arrange a viewing of this vehicle. Again, this is a classic vehicle that has been driven and enjoyed. It’s not perfect or a museum piece so there may be minor imperfections in the body, brite work and glass. Anything to note is listed above.
Terms: Contact must be made by the buyer within 48 hours and a non-refundable $750 Paypal deposit is due within 48 hours of end of auction close, balance due within 7 days of auction close as cash or bank wire only. Due to space limitations and other upcoming auctions, buyer MUST take possession within 7 days of auction close unless other arrangements are agreed upon. I can store this vehicle for $125 a month (in advance) if you need time to make affordable shipping arrangements. Paid storage is in a dry, heated, secure indoor location. I do not finance. No trade or barter.
I am not responsible for any fees, or taxes or any out-of-pocket costs. Buyer is responsible for all state, county, city taxes and fees, as well as title/registration fees in the state that the vehicle will be registered. No warranty, sold as is.
Shipping is the Buyer’s responsibility. I will not ship but will work with your shipping company. A list of contact information for some of the shipping companies previous Buyers have used can be provided upon request for your quotation and shipping needs. Pick-up arrangements (by the Buyer or the shipping company) must be coordinated in advance to insure my availability since I am often in and out on business. Local delivery may be possible within 200 miles of zip code 44056 for an extra charge. Buyer is responsible for all shipping and related arrangements and payments. Vehicle must be paid in full before it leaves my premises.
Insurance: I highly recommend that the buyer put insurance on the vehicle upon purchase as I am not responsible for any damage incurred after leaving my premises.
Good luck and happy bidding!
