1957 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 BelAir description
This 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air is one of the most iconic cars ever built and features gorgeous body lines with timeless chrome and stainless accents. This one has been body on restored and upgraded with lots of new driver options to give you a memorable driving experience.
The exterior of this Bel Air is done in a gorgeous, glassy Base Coat Clear Coat Black paint that has been buffed and polished to a deep rich shine and covers a straight and solid body with great body lines and pane fitment. At the time of the restoration new bumpers were installed and the rest of the chrome and stainless is in great condition with some of it having been replaced as well. Most, if not all of the glass has been replaced as well as new seals around the windshield and back glass. New weather stripping throughout the car as well as the doors and in the trunk was also installed. To finish off the look it's sitting on a set of New 18x8 and 18x9.5 Polished Ridler Wheels wrapped in New 255/45/18 and 235/45/18 168MPH rated radials.
The interior of this '57 has been completely transformed into a luxurious and modern style that will give you a very comfortable cruise. Done in a Dark Charcoal with Titanium inserts The Seats as well as the modern styled Door Panels and Shifter/Gauge Console make you feel like a million bucks. Looking at the dash you can see that all of the cluster gauges have also been upgraded to modern style and all the stainless is very nice. The radio has been upgraded by Custom AutoSound and it also comes with Vintage A/C that has the vents mounted under the dash and blows Ice Cold. A set of seatbelts have been installed as well. To complete the interior, it has a New black headliner and New black carpet.
Now, the heartbeat of the Chevy. Under the hood everything is neat and clean. The engine is a powerful HI TEC Balanced and Blueprinted 406/450+HP that has an Edelbrock Performer Intake Bowtie Heads and Holley Carb. that’s dressed with B&M AuminumValve covers and Breather and backed up by a Turbo 400 tranny. The Vintage A/C unit features a radial style compressor and to keep this '57 cool is has an Aluminum Radiator w/electric cooling fans that are all mounted to a Chrome Radiator Support. For exhaust, it has Ceramic Coated Headers with Dual Pipes and FlowMaster Mufflers. To go along with the A/C it also has Power Steering, Power Disc Front brakes. When you look under it the frame and floors are in good condition with new body bushings installed.
Finally, none of this would be safe without a New American AutoWire complete wiring harness and complete front end rebuild including; ball joints, bushings, tie rods, springs, idler and 2” drop axles for a great cruising experience. Also included are over 30 years of receipts for maintenance and upgrades performed as well as the original owners manual.
I have owned several of these, but none done to this quality and performance. Thanks for looking.
