1957 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210Wow, this will brighten a gloomy day. The fit and finishes throughout are high quality.
EXTERIOR: It is striking, that bright yellow glass finish paint, lowered stance and big chrome wheels certainly will catch anyone's attention. The body looks amazing- laser straight from every angle. It did not notice any issues anywhere. The paint is like yellow glass, it even feels slick. Every piece of chrome and trim on the car is new. Up front the grill, bumpers, headlight bezels, rockets on the hood were replaced. All of the stainless trim around the windows and down the sides is polished like chrome. Antenna, mirrors, door handles with the fingernail guards are new. In back the bumper, emblems, bow tie tail light lenses, reverse lights were replaced. All of the glass is new with a soft tint. Door jambs are painted real slick. New weather strips, door latches and polished sill plates. It rides on staggered size US Mag chrome wheels- 17s in front, 18s back with performance tires.
INTERIOR: Wow, I thought I was sitting in a high end luxury car for a minute. It is obviously professionally done with premium finishes and workmanship. No overlooked details. The custom made center console extends all the way to the back. No need to call "shotgun", all four passengers get a sport bucket seat. The front seats are both power. It has seat belts front and back. Custom moulded door panels and headliner are very well done. Down on the floor is premium grade carpet with bound edges and matching floor mats. In front of me is a pristine dash. The yellow paint is polished as glossy as the exterior. The trim sparkles. It has a good looking set of custom gauges. The Vintage Air heat and air system uses the original style controls that are now electric instead of cables. It has a retro stereo system with aux plugs in the glove box. There are round speakers moulded into the doors and 6x9s back and an amp in the trunk. It has a digital clock. A polished tilt column proudly display s a beautiful steering wheel, the grip matches the upholstery. There are cup holders and 6 power window switches on the console. Why 6? The vent windows are power too, the first 57 I've seen with them.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Put your sunglasses on. Under the hood is full of polished parts. The 350 motor has a mild performance build. On top is a polished Edelbrock intake with a big dual feed Holley carb with electric choke and an HEI ignition system. It has a set of coated headers too. All the hoses and lines are wrapped in braided stainless steel. All the components on the front of the motor are billet- March brackets and pulleys with serpentine belt, polished one wire alternator, mini polished a/c compressor, billet timing cover and modern power steering with remote March billet reservoir. A big polished radiator with dual electric fans and a polished overflow bottle keeps it cool. The condenser is polished aluminum and matches the radiator. Chrome plated brake booster and polished master, stainless lines. Upgraded CPP steering box. It has an upgraded modern electric wiper system. It has chrome plated hinges and latches, even the horns are chrome. Everything else is painted gloss yellow. There are machine cut flamed panels on each side too.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It is boxed and upholstered just as classy as the interior. The rear panel opens and that is where you will find the battery. Bottom of the trunk lid is one smooth panel. The jamb is painted slick, new weather strip. Premium grade carpet on the floor.
UNDERSIDE: The body was removed from the chassis for a thorough restoration. The front end was completely rebuilt- lowering spindles, springs, shocks, bushings, ball joints, tie rods etc. In back it has new shocks and leaf springs with lowering blocks. The frame was prepped and painted. The underbody was cleaned and prepped, it's all smooth dry metal painted black. The Two were reunited with new bushings. Looking up at the motor it's very clean. It has a finned aluminum oil pan, chrome high torque starter and a chrome flywheel cover. The turbo 400 automatic has a finned aluminum oil pan that matches the motor. It's a great sounding custom exhaust with stainless steel MagnaFlow mufflers. Rebuilt brakes, there's disc brakes up front. New fuel system, the tank is painted yellow. Every last but and bolt under this car looks new.
