Stk. 1863 1957 Chevrolet Bel AirRestomod Convertible
Positively glowing in Vivid Blue Pearl paint over an arrow-straight and rust-free body, this custom 57 Chevrolet is guaranteed to turn more than just a few heads with its many fine details; like its stunning chrome, custom-crafted polished stainless grille, gleaming hood rockets and those trade-mark side spears with grooved aluminum inserts. A tremendous amount of painstaking care and craftsmanship went into the making of this Fifty-Seven that spanned the length of over ten years to complete. Steve Gibson in Greensboro laid down this amazing paint scheme in 2011, where the shaved, smoothed and filed body was blocked and sanded five times to produce this deep and glossy exterior you see here today. Custom standouts like dual frenched power antennas, shaved door handles and Mercedes cloth convertible top truly make this a hand crafted wonder. Under the hood, a smoothed firewall plays back-drop to a fuel-injected 6.0L LS2 Corvette mill teamed up with a precision six-speed Tremec manual transmission. Final drive is delivered to the ground via an aluminum driveshaft to a 3.73:1 posi-traction rear. Keeping it glued to the ground are four Intro "Twisted Vista II" custom wheels shod with 225/50/17 Continental rubber up front and massive 275/45/18s out back. The powder coated undercarriage sports a Fat Man front suspension complete with tubular control arms, power rack and pinion steering and stainless-steel steering linkage. Out back, a chromed four-link suspension, adjustable coil-over shocks and a narrowed rear end keep it real while four-wheel disc brakes with cross drilled rotors and powder coated calipers provides the "Whoa" power. The key to any custom ride is in the interior and this two-tone gray, faux Ostrich leather interior is gorgeous! The original dash was treated to a unique, soft-touch matte finish and houses crisp black-faced Auto Meter gauges, an in-dash Kenwood AM/FM/CD head unit, while a custom center console accommodates the a/c controls, vents and a Corvette shifter. Cruise control, power windows, remote popper; this Tri-Five has it all! (PROFESSIONALN.C. AUTO APPRAISAL: $227,000.)
