Tall, flashy, and exceptionally fast: gassers are a cool unique era in custom classics that command attention simply because they - literally - tower over the other cars at the shows. You don't see these often, especially done like this. But when you want to be recognized even in a crowd of standouts, then you need a nicely restored gasser made from an icon like this 1957 Chevrolet 210.
There was a restoration investment in this one possibly as little as 1,600 miles ago and plenty of updates in the years since then. It makes for the right mix of a bright and stylish icon that isn't too fancy to hit the dragstrip on any Saturday night. In fact, it really represents the gasser culture correctly. These were all about shedding weight and transferring force to the rear wheels. So it correctly has the front bumper removed, and in its place, chromed welded camshafts that are lighter and look soooo much cooler. With the high solid axle installed you get to showcase the whole header package in the fenders and exhaust cutouts under the front. The profile keeps plenty of the original Tri-Five Chevy flair with bright sweeping side trim that ends in the upgraded Bel Air fan-style insert. It makes a nice impression with details like classic whitewalls, bright wheels, blue-dot taillights, and fender graphics announcing this '57 is a "Fuelish Pleasure."
The interior continues the right gasser style which gives you a competition-ready machine with a touch of custom fun. This starts with the seats finished in pearl white. They carry a hint of tuck-n-roll that's repeated on all the side panels and floor mat inserts. Plus, the red accents on the doors, carpeting, dash, and roll bar match the exterior for an overall thoughtful build. Gassers are very custom machines, and this one lives up to that heritage quite nicely. You see it in period-correct upgrades like the Moon sweeping tach, toggle switches, Hurst shifter, and metallic red steering wheel. And you'll also find some nice more modern upgrades like the SunPro auxiliary gauges and polished tilt column.
The engine bay likes to be both stylish and powerful. You've got plenty of polished components and an overall tidy style. But a real gasser never takes itself too seriously, and so you'll spot details like the beer can radiator overflow held in the finned alloy holder. At the heart is a hardy 350 cubic-inch V8. And, go-fast goodies have been added, including a Holley double-pumper four-barrel carburetor, a Weiand Team G intake, aluminum heads, and performance headers. You've already seen how great that last feature looks through the wheel wells, but what you might not notice is that the full dual exhaust exits under the car. This allows the Flowmaster mufflers to give the V8 a nice tune, or you can just open the electronic cutout covers for the ultimate roar. A speedway-style front straight axle, ladder bar rear, power steering, power, brakes, and front discs are good all-around features. And we know you'll love the control of the Muncie four-speed manual transmission.
This is the complete gasser package that grabs attention everywhere, from the Sunday show, to the dragstrip. After all, you have a shining '57 Chevy with the ultimate blacktop king attitude. So don't miss out, call today!!!
