Description:

1957 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 The Black Widow

Thanks for stopping by to take a look at our very cool 1957 Chevy, the Black Widow. She’s She’s dark, down and packing a hot 383 stroker. Lot’s of attitude, a loud rumble from underneath and plenty of punch to back it up, combined with modern upgrades to make driving a pleasure. Not intended as a show car, she has her nicks and scars, she’s a bad ass but fun and comfortable driver.


Rarity

Everyone recognizes a 57 Chevy. Everyone. Even people who aren’t “car people” know a 57 Chevy is special. Produced for one year only with those iconic tail fins and gorgeous looks. This is no show queen, rarer than rare numbered front to rear shiny thing to be driven in parades and then back to being pampered in her climate controlled bubble. This is a bruiser with manners. Well, some manners anyway.


And yes, she’s a four door. This car fools plenty of people into thinking she’s a two door. It takes attitude to rock a sedan like this and you had better have some punch to back it up. Take a look and a listen at the videos and discover what a badass this girl really is.

Comparables

There are few comparable 57 Chevy’s for sale at a reasonable price. Perhaps you can find a rusted out old girl that needs work, or an expensive garage queen you will be afraid to leave outside. Find a real, solid, driver in excellent condition with great eye appeal and you have a very few choices indeed. Given the extreme scarcity of available cars in this class, this 57 Chevy represents an outstanding value that can be enjoyed immediately as well as being an appreciating investment in automotive art.


Inspection

Please come inspect this great Hot Rod before the listing ends. We are happy to meet you and show her off. The details contained in this listing are based on our review of the vehicle and any errors or omissions are unintentional. Please keep in mind that this is a 61 year old used car. It will need periodic attention just as any classic automobile does. It is not a new car and will not be fresh and perfect like that new soul sucking Camry your Aunt Betty drives. If that’s what you are after, this is not your era, nor your car so please move on to something new. Like a Prius.
