800 Derita Road, Ste. A
When you want the biggest and baddest classic pickup out there, it's hard to beat this 1957 Chevrolet 5700. This is an industrial-grade machine everywhere from the big steel wheels to the cab running lights. And as you look at the full package, you'll even find a few features that may surprise you.
The '57 Bel Air is an icon but this Chevy is a dream classic for many of us, too. After all, it still gives you some of the 1950s stylishness but with the intimidating cab-over stance. It's a true fantasy truck where the short wheelbase is a custom creation that takes the classic workman style and fits it into a more everyday package. So think of it as imposing as an International XT or GMC Topkick, but with vintage prestige added in, too. This has all the right classic elements, like top running lights and extra-tall mirrors. It also genuinely has the right stuff to get to work, like a dropped trailer hitch, a proper truck bed, a diamond plate toolbox, and a true dual rear wheel dually. The paint, body, and details follow the industrial-grade theme, and so we like this presentation. It's the kind of thing that gives your company decades of credibility just for writing your name on the side. But the value price on a build like this means there can also be room in your budget if you want to upgrade to a showstopper.
The interior keeps the honest and vintage style going. The bench seats, rubber floor, and simple door panels have a workman attitude while also looking good. And you have the right vintage features like the fan-style speedometer, thin/grippy dual-spoke steering wheel, the classic AM radio for display, and a working heater. This even has been upgraded to provisions for R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) But we bet your favorite part will just be the feeling of stepping up high and taking a commanding driving position that towers over even the SUVs out there.
Under the hood is a fresher crate V8 installed in 2017. It even looks like a classic powerhouse with all that Chevy orange on the block and a round black air grabber. This 350 cubic-inch motor is quite upgradeable, and today it warms up to be the hardy small block you know. And the four-speed manual transmission and two-speed axle give you the full big rig experience.
So if you need the biggest and baddest custom classic, don't let this one-of-a-kind slip away. Call now!
