DESCRIPTION

This is a beautiful looking 57, the colors pop! Real Bel Air upgraded with a 4-speed, a tri-power and power disc brakes!



EXTERIOR: I think the color really stands out. Bright, cheery, very 1950s! Recently restored. The body is clean and straight without issues. The paint has a high gloss finish. Jambs are nicely painted. Just about every piece of chrome and trim is new. Look at the front end sparkle. New grill, lenses, has chrome dagmar (the pointy cones). The side trim is new including the Bel Air inserts on the quarters. The stainless around the windows is polished, the flippers above the doors work. The tail end sparkles just as good, gas cap is hidden behind the trim. Has LED taillights. Has new gold Vs front and back. Has optional door handle guards and dual mirrors. The windshield and weather strips have been replaced. Those big whitewalls are new radial tires, has spinner hubcaps. Also included are a set of fender skirts. Painted to match, can be easily installed if preferred.



INTERIOR: The interior has been restored pretty much stock except for that 4- speed Hurst shifter on the floor and vintage style Mooneyes tachometer on the column. That is a proper shifter for a bench seat. The upholstery on the seats and door panels are completely replaced in the original style. Good choice, the original is really sharp looking, has chrome piping and buttons. They also replaced the headliner and visors. New carpet and reproduction floormats. The metal trim is all repainted. Has new handles, window cranks, horn ring. Has oil and temp gauges neatly mounted below the dash.



ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It's all painted up and polished. Has a nifty looking set a tri power carbs with a vintage Edelbrock intake on top of the 283 motor. Upgraded MSD ignition system. Sharp looking finned aluminum valve covers. Also has chrome alternator, filler neck, and gooseneck. Runs cool because of the upgraded aluminum water pump, radiator and overflow bottle. New shroud. New power brake upgrade setup with dual master. Has electric wipers. New battery with a disconnect switch. It's certainly a hood you will be proud to open.



TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Completely painted the body color. The bottom of the trunk lid and the jamb are painted real slick. Hardware and latches are detailed up. New correct rubber mat, new weatherstrip. Has a brand new tire on a painted rim and the jack is restored.



UNDERSIDE: Overall solid underside that has been sprayed black. Has a set of dual exhaust with Smithey glass pack mufflers for that old school hot rod sound. New fuel system including the tank, straps and sending unit. Bottom of the motor is clean, has screw on oil canister. The 4-speed trans looks fresh. Brakes were redone, upgraded to disc in front. Shocks have been replaced.



The 57 Chevy is arguably the most iconic car of all time. As popular today as it was when new. This one is a beautiful example, restored to to impress. Not to mention it will be fun to drive. Shifting gears and opening up all three carbs. Thanks to the disc brakes you will stop too!



I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.

Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.

Don't be intimidated, contact sales now for a no pressure, no hassle experience!
