 Vehicle Description
We know you guys love tri-five Chevys, so when this black 57 2-door showed up, we welcomed it with open arms. A cool resto-mod, it has a few tweaks to make it a blast to drive, including a thundering custom stereo system, and quite honestly, this car represents a ton of fun for the money.

Those hot-rod wheels give it a modern look, but the truth is the bodywork is pretty much as GM intended way back in the 1950s. The car was built a few years ago and wears more recent paint, and thanks to modern materials and good bodywork underneath, someone with a little time and talent could give it a cut-and-buff to really take it up a notch. The doors fit well and the two-door bodywork is more rigid than the hardtop, so everything lines up the way it should. Unlike so many resto-mods, this one still wears all its original trim work, most of which was restored or replaced during the build. From the bumpers to the delicate piece of trim along the window sills that accents the little dip in the bodywork, it keeps all the jewelry that makes these cars winners with the public. The anodized side panels are gone, replaced by contrasting paint that gives it a custom look without spoiling the original designers intent.

The stunning two-tone black and gray interior is recently finished and was custom crafted around a state-of-the-art stereo system. The black bucket seats are wrapped in high-grade vinyl with suede inserts, and the rear bench was upholstered to match. The original dash and gauges were kept in place and look to be in good condition, with the three-spoke steering wheel adding a bit of color to the otherwise monochromatic Chevy. A custom-made center console houses a pair of cup holders for cruising, as well as additional speakers and the CD player, all wrapped in matching black vinyl for a well-integrated look. The carpets and door panels are also new and match the overall theme of the interior. The Chevys big trunk is put to good use with a full custom installation for a pair of subwoofers in their own removable enclosure, plus the amplifiers and a pair of capacitors to power the system.

Power comes from a 350 cubic inch Chevy V8 which, of course, slides right into the 57s engine bay without modifications. With a mild cam inside, a 4-barrel carburetor up top, and a snarky dual exhaust system, it makes the right hot rod sounds without upsetting the reliability that made these engines famous. Chrome valve covers and a matching air cleaner give it a showy look that brightens up the all black engine bay, and youll note a heavy-duty alternator to power all that stereo gear and a new master cylinder for the front disc brakes. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission means you dont have to worry about shifting while youre cruising and with highway-friendly gears in the stock rear end, its great for long-distance hauls. The undercarriage wasnt restored but the hardware is in good order and this car drives extremely well. Those aforementioned Boss Motorsports wheels certainly make a statement against the old bodywork and carry 245/35/20 performance radials.

This is an awesome cruiser that doesnt break any new ground but instead provides the kind of reliable, care-free cruising that everyone ultimately wants, and the incredible stereo system certainly doesnt hurt. Call today!
