1957 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 --
If you're searching for a sizzling custom that mixes fully sorted mechanicals with great aesthetics this 210 is your next classic! The essential part of building a jaw dropping custom is: knowing EXACTLY when to hold back. And with an icon like the Chevy tri-five even the subtlest touches go a long way. Naturally the pros who massaged this wagon's California body paid plenty of attention to the fundamentals but their primary focus was creating the most perfect surfacing possible. That surfacing... is founded on mostly-original panels that are impressively flat displaying nary a ripple or wave anywhere. As expected those straight pieces ensure fit and finish that's significantly above '50s factory fodder. Speaking of factory the car's original trim was removed subjected to $3500 of hand polishing and carefully reinstalled. And that stainless is highlighted by a glossy coat of Viper Blue 2-stage that blows traditional pastels straight out of the water! Straight from GM the car's proven LS1 V8 combines a sturdy aluminum block with lightweight aluminum heads coil-near-plug ignition and aluminum flat top pistons to create razor-sharp throttle response and a torque band that's as wide as Texas. Behind that awesome mill a tough Tremec 6-speed makes good use of a narrowed Ford 9-inch which is built with 3.25 gears and sturdy Moser axles. Turns come courtesy of power rack-and-pinion steering. Four disc brakes scrub speed. The car's Satin Black floors hover on a Satin Black frame which rides on a Fatman independent front-clip and Ridetech 4-link rear-half. That suspension adds swagger via Ridetech ShockWave air ride. And that hardware rolls on sweet Schott Modsport wheels which spin 225/45R18 Bridgestone Duelers in front of 315/35R20 Bridgestone Duelers. Sporting a detailed restoration that would probably take a second mortgage to duplicate this 210 rolls on the right side of impressive. Call click or visit for more information!
