You know how much of an icon the Tri-Five Chevys are, but you can already tell there's something extra special about this 1957 Chevrolet 210 restomod. With extra shine on the outside, extra comfort on the inside, and serious fuel injected V8 power, it's a show-worthy total package, right down to the color-matched undercarriage.
Burnt Orange was the right choice for this car's color. And they had to make that decision early one, because the engine bay, chassis, wheel wells, axle, and so many more details were all part of the paint theme in this thoughtful build. But the prime reason to love it is what it does to the '57 Chevy's body. It has the right tone to keep with the classic attitude, and modern glow coming off of this makes the body look like it was made from precious metal. That quality also has to do with the extra time they took with prepping the body so that the iconic curves really level up to your nostalgia. This has the look of investment everywhere with the freshly dipped bumpers, new glass, sport mirrors, crystal-clear headlights, and RT5 wheels that has an amazing polish and a sporty 17/18-inch front/rear stance. It's such a terrific total package, that this one earns its upgrade to the iconic Bel Air tailfin treatment.
The same detailed custom quality continues inside. It's impressive how they matched the carpeting with the exterior orange, but the real heart of this is the tan/beige that adds in an extra idea of premium inside. You especially see it in the supple leather seats. Plus, these are detailed with ostrich pattern inserts on the seats, door panels, and even the trunk. As a true restomod, they made sure to upgrade you with the best features. It includes cold blowing R134a air conditioning, power windows, cup holders, and a modern Alpine touchscreen AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth and a backup camera. The custom full-length center console means that not only does the front get bucket seats, but also the rear does, too. Yours power adjusts to the ideal driver's position. The chrome steering wheel has a nice ostrich style grip, and it's mounted on a tilt column to give you a clear view to the full Classic Instruments gauge panel, including tach.
The exterior presentation is nothing but metallic paint and polished components, and it seems like the engine bay wanted to have the exact same style. The big investments getting everything tucked in and polished is sure to get you awards for presentation alone... and that's before they read Corvette on the engine cover. Oh yes, this is a fuel-injected LT1 5.7-liter V8. And while you're admiring how well they upgraded the full package, don't forget to recognize all the quality supporting components, including March pulleys, upgraded brackets, upgraded hinges, and a four-core aluminum radiator with dual electric fans. The shorty headers make sure the upgraded V8 exhales with the proper power and tune from the dual exhaust. And just in case you haven't picked up on the hints earlier, you're really going to want to check out those pipes in the undercarriage photos. Not only will you see the well-matched orange presentation, but you'll also spot great driving upgrades like upgrades like the tubular A-arm front end with adjustable coil overs and thick sway bar on the rear. So while there are hardly any miles on this build, we know you won't be able to resist adding to the odometer. Especially because this has power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and a 4L60E four-speed transmission automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive.
Thoughtful total builds like this rarely leave their creator's hands. So you know this is a fleeting opportunity at something truly unique and truly special. Call today!!!
