1957 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 Restomod
This is the 1957 Chevrolet restomod of your dreams. After all, this is a droptop with an amazing custom presentation on the outside, a luxury A/C interior, and serious fuel-injected performance under the hood. And it's all wrapped in a fully coordinating package that's ready to win awards the moment it leaves our showroom.
This kind of full custom built takes a lot of planning and long-term vision. It starts with the full red and black two-tone presentation (you even see it carried in the undercarriage.) Door handles, badging, and other trim was expertly removed, and all the sheetmetal was massaged until this iconic classic looked nearly seamless. And that's when it was ready for the paintwork. The result is a level of presentation that looks wet from across a show field, and it's butter-smooth to the touch. This is truly a modern take on a famous American classic. And this attitude is driven home by what was once chrome. It takes an artistic eye to understand with paint so shiny, the best way to have the brightwork stand out is by painting it matte sliver. It brings a new dimension to the front end making it look sleeker and sportier than any '57 we've seen before. And the rear has been custom formed into a single piece that incorporates the wraparound bumper and tailfin. It's such a beautiful presentation that we can't help but think it's what the designers would have wanted to do if they had the technology to make it in 1957. And you can tell extra time was taken to make sure this was a fully coordinated presentation. That's why the black folding roof looks so good when it's in place. Even the wheels are part of this package as those cool Aurora alloys are painted gloss black and then were striped with the exterior red and silver.
The remote door openers are your gateway to a full custom presentation inside. Everyone has individual bucket seats. While they are trimmed in supple black leather, you have comfortable cloth inserts for where you sit so you're never afraid to hop into this custom Chevy even if you're wearing shorts on a hot day. Just like the exterior, this one has been built to be sleek and fully coordinated. That's why you get a black and silver steering wheel, and beyond that is a black and silver dash that is free from all clutter. In fact, the only piece that you'll really see are the custom set of Classic Instruments gauges. But while this might look minimalist, all the best features are expertly integrated. For example, the controls for the R134a air conditioning are just below the dash and are camouflaged in black. Plus, the Clarion AM/FM/CD stereo and full Rockford Fosgate speaker system are controlled through a small package on the center console. It's right next to the red start button, which will absolutely be your favorite feature, because it unleashes the beast.
The sea of red, black, and silver continues when you pop the hood. The smooth fender walls and custom paint can win awards all on its own, but what you'll really love is the substance behind the style. This is a massive GM Performance 572 cubic-inch crate engine. More than just the biggest of big blocks, this V8 has also has been enhanced with an Edelbrock aluminum intake, fuel injection, and Sanderson ceramic-coated headers. The full package is rated around 620 horsepower, and the thunderous sound from the dual exhaust let's everyone know it. Best of all you have full control over this huge power and full soundtrack thanks to the Tremec TKO600 five-speed manual transmission. And because this has the power of a modern performance machine, the suspension was upgraded to handle it all. This includes tubular A-arms up front, a Heidt's four-link rear, and Wilwood drilled & slotted four-wheel disc brakes. There are so many more upgrades, so please call for all the details. But you already know the level of craftsmanship will have you putting a mirror under this one at car shows. But more than just showing off, you'll appreciate the great driving features, like the power steering, limited slip rear end, and aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans (after all, it keeps the big V8 running cool even when you have the A/C pumping.)
It's time for all eyes to be on you. It's time for everyone to talk about your car. It's time for this one-of-a-kind '57 Chevy. Call today!!!
