1957 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 Sedan DeliveryThis 1957 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery was a dream that took many years to reach this state. It has just gone through a complete restoration. Everything is new.It has been driven less than 700 miles. The body was brought down to bare metal before a two tone red and white paint job,separated by side chrome trim from a 1956 Pontiac, as applied. All chrome is either new, reshly polished or re-chromed. All new glass, eals, indow channels, elts andweatherstripping were used throughout. Originally from California there were no rust issues anywhere. The undersides is very nice and clean.
Everything in the engine compartment is new.Items that could beunbolted (inner fenderwells, adiator support, tc.) were sandblasted and power coated. The entirefront suspensionwas rebuilt (ball joints, ushings, ie rods, dler arm, itman arm, tc.). New tubular upper and lower control arms, rop spindles and coil springs give it a lowered stance. Lowering blocks in the rear are used to level it out. A chrome "I-did-it" tilt steering column with new rag joints connects to a "CCP" 500 Series power steering box. The front end was then realigned. The body sits on urethane body mounts.
The rebuilt Chevrolet small block 350 enginehas a "performance" camshaft, Edelbrock" intake manifold, Demon" carburetor, luminum valve covers and a polished aluminum oil pan. For the ignition system there is a "MSD" distributor, ires, oil and "Digital MSD-6AL" ignition box. An aluminum radiator is used to keep the engine running cool. The transmission is a rebuilt 700R4 with overdrive. A "B&Mconvertor controller" controls torque convertor lockup. There is a polishedaluminum transmission pan and locking dip stick.
Exhaust system consist of coated and polishedlong tube headers, 1/2" aluminized exhaust system and "Flow Master Super 44" mufflers. It sounds great with the beat of the performance camshaft.
The braking system consist of a new power brake booster with additional vacuum reservoir and dual master cylinder. 4 wheel disc brakes were added with "Wilwood" in front and "CPP"in the rear. It has a working parking brake. All new brake lines and braided stainless steel hoses were used before silicone brake fluid was added. New 16" Cragar SS rims and tires were then installed.
The interior is beautiful. Everything has just been done. "Dyna Mat" was installed on the floors before new carpets went on. A folding rear seat from a 2 door station wagon was locatedand added. All new upholstery, oor panels, arpets and headliner throughout. All metal interior pieces was painted body color. "Vintage Air" air conditioning system cools the interior. "Kenwood" stereo system with an amplifier neatly hidden under the back seat connects to speakers throughout. The rear speakers are housed in a nice removable boxed enclosure behind the rear seat. New electrical wiring harness with ATO fuse box replaced the old wiring. "Classic Industries" instrument cluster houses all the dash gauges. LED lights are used in the front and rear.
A new fuel tank, traps, ines, ending unit and locking gas cap were installed.
A album full of receipts showing all new parts used in the build comes with the car. Also, here isa photo album showing the car as it was being restored. As stated, VERYTHING is either rebuilt or new.
I estimatethe carto be90-95% completed. All the hard work is done. There is a bit of "fine tuning" left to be done mechanically. The brakes were just installed by a local shop and needs to be "dialed in". The camshaft may be too big and not producing enough engine vacuum for the brake booster. The torque convertor is a little too "tight" (needs more stall) for this cam. I would replace the camshaft with a milder one.The hood opened while driving at a low speed and bent the passenger side hinge and will need to be replaced. The hood is slightlymisaligned and therearea fewpaint chips on the edge of the fenders as a result of this but functions properly. I will include new hood hingesfor the new owner. The air conditioning fan/blower motordoes notblow air but the compressor kicks on and the lines are ice cold. May be a wire not connected or faulty fan switch. Thepaint job could use some wet sanding and buffing on the edges in order to make it "show car" worthy otherwise it is presentable. I recommend inspecting the car in person before bidding.
