MotoeXotica is pleased to announce our latest addition a 1957 Chevrolet Series 150 A Coupe. Easily mistaken for its’ more expensive model the Bel Air; the Series 150 A was introduced in 1953 as Chevrolet’s economy and fleet model. Mostly bought by law enforcement agencies government agencies and small business; these cars were rarely sold to private individuals. However price frugal hot rodders soon realized the Series 150 was an excellent cheap platform to build from. MotoeXotica’s Series 150 was built with the hot rodder philosophy in mind.
In true hot rod fashion this hardtop coupe has a crisp white base coat of paint with extremely well executed painted flames engulfing the front section of this Chevy. Clearly this paint job was performed by a highly experienced painter and it shows amazingly. There are only very minor imperfections which are negligible and only visible upon close inspection. A tri-bar chrome front bumper sits beneath a custom grill and lighting mounts all of which are in fantastic condition. Both fit and finishes on this Chevy are very well done; panel gaps and doors are ideal.
Taking a step inside this Chevy it is clear the attention the exterior of the car received was not exclusive. Both bench seats have been reupholstered in a period correct vinyl with cloth inserts and are in ideal condition with no defects to be found. Newer refurbished gauges are placed in the very clean dashboard; all of the gauges are back-lit by a pale green light. However the temperature gauge and windshield wipers are inoperable. Air conditioning is provided by a newer Vintage Air system and is controlled by custom gauges that feel period correct. A more modern CD/radio unit is hidden to the left of the steering column. Newer carpet and headliner have been placed inside and are in excellent condition as well. Every chrome accessory is in place and shows little signs of use.
Powering this show quality Chevy is a General Motors Performance crate engine! The previous owner decided to remove the original motor for a new and highly upgraded Ram Jet 350ci small block; making a very reliable 350hp. General Motors’ Ram Jet engine includes an exclusive 9” intake system that clears the hood without worry MEFI 4 engine management controller new wiring harness and modern electronic port fuel injection. This engine package has the appearance of a classic Rochester mechanical injection system with the reliability of a modern General Motors engine. A hydraulic roller camshaft and Vortec heads with a 9:4:1 compression ratio allows the engine to use pump-gas and leaves room for power modifications. Tremec 5-speed manual transmission is paired with the Ram Jet and is silky smooth with every gear change. Keeping the new performance engine cool is an aluminum radiator that is more than enough to keep the engine temperature in check even on hot days. Power front disc brakes and rear drums stop the car without any worry. The rear-end is original with upgraded replacement parts; while the front-end has been completely revised with new independent suspension geometry and “I Did It” tilting steering column with power steering too.
What are you waiting for? This Chevrolet 150 Series A has everything that a hot rodder that wants a complete daily driver would want on their car installed professionally and it shows!
