Here's the best way to bring two icons together. This is a true 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air coupe on the outside, but underneath the skin are the best modern upgrades you could want, including a LS1 Corvette V8.
There is a secret deal you make when buying the right restomod. It's the quiet acknowledgement that they get built with a little extra flash because more people are going to see it. After all, if you can drive this '57 more comfortably to many more places, so this coupe will be seen by plenty more people. The upgrade starts with the paint. By utilizing a glossy modern shine and avoiding the two-tone treatment, this one skews more towards the look of a serious street machine. And take a moment to really appreciate the slickness of this Matador Red. They took they're time to professionally lay it out, and so it draws even more attention to the crisp bodywork. It also highlights custom elements like the smoother hood, sport mirrors, frenched license plate, and custom hood inserts that now help feed air to the beast under the hood. Plus, the brightwork attracts attention all on its own. There's a deeper shine and a straighter finish that tells everyone there was a ton invested here. We especially like the simplified front end. It still carries the classic '57 spirit, but now it also has a more modern appeal that matches the polished C5 Corvette wheels.
One look inside, and you can instantly tell this is a restomod that will leave you wanting for nothing. The bucket seats have modern bolstering and are coverd in supple Ultraleather. And this is not just for you, because thanks to the full-length custom center console, everyone has an individual seat. And because family and friends will want to go for a ride, you have upgrades like a modern AM/FM/CD stereo, full Boston Acoustic sound package, and cold R134a air conditioning. But the driver's seat is the one that will always matter the most. That's why yours power adjusts to the ideal position, and you're just a fingertip away from features like power windows and power locks. There's even a custom built-in overhead console to hold the built-in satellite radio, radar detector, and integrated garage door opener. As you rest your hand on the Corvette shifter, grab the Lecarra sports steering wheel, and see the full gauge package fitted into the classic dash, your body gets the tingle of performance even before you twist the key and hear this one roar.
Lift the hood, and you'll see another Chevy icon powering this legendary coupe. Within the smooth painted fender walls is an LS1 V8 motor from a C5 Corvette. That means the racing flags on the tailfins are earned, and in fact, it's something much wilder than what most people will be expecting. After all, this bulletproof modern motor churned out 350 hp in the 'Vette. And since the professionals at Time Machines Inc. created this full custom build, we know it's still that strong today. But power is only part of this unique package. It's mated to a 4L60-E transmission that's connected to a 3.15 limited slip rear end with the perfect ratio that's set for power takeoffs or all-day highway cruising. Plus, the Corvette's fully independent suspension was adapted for this classic, too. Add in power steering, vented & slotted four-wheel disc brakes, and modern Michelin tires on all four wheels, and this is a great custom that can be driven all day before teaching lesser coupes a few lessons at night.
The sale comes complete with this car's feature story in Chevy High Performance Magazine. This is the one-of-a-kind Bel Air that you've always dreamed of owning. But there's only one up for grabs so hurry and call today!
