1957 Chevrolet Bel Air
REAL BEL AIR, 350 SBC V8, TH350, MODERN A/C, MODERN RADIO, BLACK ON BLACK, NICE
A last hurrah for the second generation Bel Air, the 1957 model brought forth a completely new design that lasted one year only. A classic sooner than many of its contemporaries, the '57 Chevy is an American icon that has been sought after almost since day one. While there's not a color that looks bad on these cars, black and white is an absolutely killer combination.
A nice, driver quality car all the way around, it is safe to say that this car has received a moderate restoration in the past. The paint is good, and because it is an older paint job you wouldn't be afraid to cruise this puppy on a regular basis! There are a lot of nice exterior trim pieces on this car, many of which appear to be originals. The Cragar chrome wheels are a nice touch, giving it a 1970s street machine feel. Coupled with adjustable air shocks and traction bars in the rear, this Bel Air makes a great day two time machine!
Much like the exterior, the interior has be refinished previously with tuck and roll pleated vinyl seats. The black vinyl matches with the exterior black, and we aren't sure we'd rather have any other color interior! The pleated design also goes with the “day two” feel of the car and an automatic ratchet shifter has been installed in the floor. The front bench seat was slightly modified to account for the new shifter, so it looks like it belongs! Originally a 3-speed column shifted car, the TH350 automatic transmission is a worthy upgrade ideal for casual cruising. A modern-style A/C system has been installed an integrated with the interior. It blows ice cold air, and is almost a necessity for a black on black car in the summer! Additionally, a modern style vintage radio has been installed for easy listening to your choice of tunes. Aftermarket gauges ensure you always know whats going on under the hood and power windows make it easy to feel the breeze. As a whole, the interior is in good condition and needs nothing to be enjoyed as-is.
Under the hood is a Chevrolet 350 V8, and while not factory original for this car, it is a popular upgrade to give the car a little more power as opposed to the 283 V8 that was available in these cars when new. Mated to a TH350 automatic transmission, this is an adequately powered classic ready for all your cruising needs. Complete with a chrome dress up kit, aluminum radiator, and 4-barrel Edelbrock carburetor, this Bel Air is already set up the way most would want it!
This is the perfect affordable driver-quality classic cruiser. Anyone in the market for an affordable '57 Bel Air will find this to be the perfect weekend vehicle, or a solid start for a next-level build!
