1957 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210
We can't think of a better way to look both sinister and vintage than this 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air hardtop with its glossy black paint, plenty of chrome, and a year-correct small block V8 under the hood. It's hard to go wrong with a '57 Chevy hardtop, and by avoiding the two-tone treatment, this one skews more towards the look of a serious street machine. These coupes are an American icon, and so the ones done correctly draw extra attention at the car shows. That's why it always excites to find one where the brightwork is complete and correct Ã¢â‚¬â€œ from the beautiful bumpers, to the iconic sweeping sides, to the gold anodized pieces that are hint at the V8 under the hood. Plus, the Halibrand-style wheels with an aggressive 18/20 inch front/rear stagger and the lowered suspension are a great performance touch without losing that vintage feeling. The black and gray interior has a great dark and bright appearance that feels like it almost mirrors the outside in both color and premium execution. You can tell there has been money spent here. So it might have a vintage appearance, but everything feels quite fresh. The button-top pattern on the seats looks period-correct for this '57 Chevy. This harmonizes with the door panels, dash, carpeting, headliner, and steering wheel to deliver a very well-coordinated classic. So you'll proudly leave all the windows down on this pillarless hardtop wherever you go so that people can really get a nice look inside. Part of what makes these cars a legend is that the Tri-Fives were the ones to introduce the Chevy small block V8. So you'll be happy to lift the hood to reveal a year-correct 283 cubic-inch motor. In fact, this has a terrifically original-style total presentation with the bold orange block, matching valve covers, and plenty of gloss black throughout. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, and exhaling through a glasspack-style dual exhaust, you get the right power you want on a small block '57. But more than just look and sound good, this classic was upgraded to be a true cruiser. That's why you have a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission. There's also power steering, power brakes (w/disc up front,) and the grip of modern performance tires. Complete with owner's manual, this is an awesome cruiser that respects its history in all the right places and upgrades where you want them most. Don't miss this well-balanced icon. Call now!
