1957 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 description
Nothing brings you back to 1957 quite like the look and feel of Chevy's top of the line Bel Air. Add in a couple rare options, and one just for fun, give it a first-class red paint job, and you have the car offered here today. Check it out.
Big chrome bumpers, rockets on the hood, and tail fins make it easy to tell when this car was built. Times were good. The space program was in full swing, and they started building the interstate system. People wanted good looking cars to get out and travel in, and this one looks great! The paint really shines like new thanks to a quality midlife basecoat/clearcoat repaint. Classic tail fins are complimented by a continental kit for the spare tire to make even more room for luggage! There are even rare, period correct fender skirts dressing up the look of the rear fenders, although covering up those classic chrome Cragar S/S wheels is almost a shame. Gold Chevrolet and Bel Air logos on the hood, trunk, and fenders, look really sweet against the red paint, and the red white and blue badging on the grill says this car is all American.
Step inside this car and its easy to see that this is a great car to load up and take a trip in. The seats are upholstered in red with comfortable textured inserts where you sit, and, as they are bench seats front and rear, its easy for your partner to slide over close while you travel. They are complimented by a matching two tone treatment on the door panels, a white headliner, and brand-new carpeting on the floor. The steering wheel sets the tone for the dash treatment in red, with a chrome horn ring. The upper dash, also in red, contains the speedometer and basic gauges. The center dash, dividing the red upper and lower, has a machined metal treatment with polished trim outlining it. It contains most of the controls, the Retrosound cassette radio, and the clock. Below that are auxiliary gauges and the vents for the A/C system.
Open the hood and there is one surprise you will notice immediately. A die cast model of this very car, painted exactly the same color, holds down the air filter housing. The engine compartment is neat and clean and nicely presented with a 350-cubic inch crate motor trimmed out with the use of wire loom. Chrome valve covers look sharp and are complimented by a polished A/C compressor. An Edelbrock 4bbl carb and intake manifold get the work of making power done while ceramic coated headers get rid of the spent gasses. The brake booster, master cylinder and alternator all add their dash of flash while getting their job done too. Things are kept cool by an aluminum radiator that has both an engine driven, and an auxiliary electric fan, which is mounted in front of the A/C condenser. Power is sent back through a 4-speed automatic trans, to 245/60/R15 tires mounted on those Cragars, and held back with the help of power front disc brakes.
Come on down and try that continental spare tire system out. Then throw some luggage in the trunk and take a trip. Just don't do it without touching base with the manager first.
