Outstanding fit and finishes in and out. Body off frame restored. Very desirable 2 door hardtop Bel Air, one of the most iconic cars of all time. Wait til you see what's in trunk.

EXTERIOR: Oh my Gosh, the fit and finish on this car is incredible. I didn't realize it was this nice until I really took a close look at it. The body lines and gaps are as good as a new Mercedes. Up front where the hood lines up with the chrome grill is a problem area for these cars and this one fits beautifully. The paint is literally polished out like red glass. There's not a ripple or wave, actually I can't find a flaw. Every single piece of exterior stainless trim is polished and straight including the moldings all around the windows and the tops of the doors. Every piece of chrome is new. The door jambs are painted beautifully. New weatherstrips, window seals and windshield. Has LED taillights and tri-bar headlights. It rolls on a set of Boss rims and performance tires.

INTERIOR: Meticulously restored from carpet to headliner. New factory type upholstery, door panels and headliner. New armrests, welting, handles, cranks, carpet erc. Custom made console houses the touch screen panel for the stereo/DVD system, gauges and a Hurst 4-speed shifter. Custom speaker enclosures on the floor with Kicker speakers and tweaters. 6x9 speakers in the rear deck. Has remote power locks. The dash and steering wheel is painted slick, has billet trim.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Show quality motor compartment. Has a performance built 327 with double hump heads, a polished aluminum intake, Edelbrock carb with electric choke and MSD ignition. It's decorated real nicely with matched polished aluminum valve covers and air cleaner with Bel-Air inscribed. It also has matching plug wire holders. All the components are painted and detailed- hinges, brackets etc. Firewall and bottom of the hood is glos red. Radiator support has a chrome cover, alternator is chromed. Features include power brakes, power steering, electric wipers and gel battery. Has aluminum water pump, braided stainless power steering hoses.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Wow this is a show in itself. The trunk compartment beautifully displays the stereo components. Has custom molded side panels that house two giant, polished amplifiers. Two mirrored boxes display the subwoofers and right in the middle is a custom one of a kind 57 Chevy tail fin. The floor is carpeted, there is a clear lid over a gel cell battery dedicated for the stereo system. Bottom of the trunk lid and the jamb are painted glossy. The latches are polished. New weather strip. It uses struts to hold the trunk lid open.

UNDERSIDE: It was body off the frame restored. The chassis is all smooth satin black, not even pitted. The front end is completely rebuilt. Has drop spindles, a sway bar, new bushings, shocks, springs etc. In back it has new shocks, lowering blocks and leaf springs. All new body bushings. Has new fuel tank and straps. New custom bent dual exhaust system with crossover pipe Muncie 4-speed transmission and it's all spotless looking a linkage looks new the Bottom of the motor is still bright Chevy orange. Muncie 4-speed transmission is fresh, new Hurst linkage. All new brake system, upgraded to discs in the front. Looks like the e-brake assembly is hooked up. The floors are completely solid including the braces and rockers.

I made sure I told the salesmen to look at this one. It's not just another 57 Chevy, it is better then most. If you appreciate quality this car will make you very happy.

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!
