1957 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 Hard TopThe worlds of icon and cruiser meet up ideally in this 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Hardtop. After all, this is a V8-powered legend that has been restored to deliver the best in nostalgia. And with well integrated upgrades, like the freshly rebuilt overdrive transmission, you really get to enjoy this one out on the road to the fullest.
This is the kind of car you're going to want to show off, so it's great they invested heavily in giving the Bolero Red a vibrant presence. And not only does the white roof draw attention to the ultra-desirable hardtop profile, but also it coordinates nicely with the whitewall tires. There is a true look of quality on this one, and the iconic brightwork really helps show it off. After all, the hood needs to line up correctly to make sure the shining front end looks like a fused comprehensive piece. And the full-length trim w/tailfin insert looks like an unbroken streak going down the car thanks to a well-done door line. And of course, there's plenty more shine in the best areas, like the correct wheel covers, dual bullet-style hood ornaments, and the golden Chevrolet badging and grille signal that this VC coupe is truly the tops. It has all the right cool cruiser details, right down to the dual antennas and rear fender skirts.
Red and black two tone interior has a great classic and coordinated look, right down to the hint of red in the black cloth seat inserts. And the button-top presentation on the seats goes nicely with all the shining trim around the doors and dash. So we know you'll be rolling down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop so that others can get a good view at it, too. The artful steering wheel and glossy red dash have an almost time capsule feeling with how vintage the whole setup is. But as you look closer, you're going to notice some well-integrated upgrades. The radio has a classic look, but it's a retro-style unit with a digital AM/FM tuner and Bluetooth, so you get modern music in this very vintage ride. And there are provisions for R134a air conditioning.
The Tri-Five Chevys started us off in the small block era, so it's great to have a 1957-correct 283 cubic-inch V8 under the hood. It's even nicely dressed with the Chevrolet script valve covers, period-correct air breather, vintage-style battery cover, and an overall tidy look. But while the first impression is vintage, the whole package was subtly done for better driving. That's why you have upgrades like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an electric fan, and an alternator. In fact, there is even a freshly rebuilt 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission (a $2,000 investment alone.) So this is the Bel Air that loves to cruise the highway in overdrive comfort. There's even power brakes w/discs up front and modern treads on those classic whitewalls.
Complete with maintenance records and service manuals, this is the icon that was built properly so you can easily show it off everywhere. Don't miss this all-around well-done Tri-Five, call today!
