You stopped to look at this 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air sedan because of its great period-correct appearance inside and out. After all, we all love an icon like this presented in a nostalgic pastel color. And the full package has a terrifically authentic style, right down to the V8 power.
Canyon Coral and India Ivory is a '57-correct color combo, and it seems to perfectly capture the vintage and premium feeling you want on Chevy's top-of-the-line sedan. This is believed to be the factory color combo, and it was given a respray later in life. Today that means the right look of a good shine and a well-respected aging that will make people think this has been your garage gem for decades (even if you just bought it yesterday.) The iconic brightwork is all in place. Just like the paint, it has the right mix of bright but with a true vintage style. So it really gets you nostalgia going everywhere with the big chrome front end, special Bel Air gold anodized trim, and legendary side trim with fan-style insert in the rear. This one seems to get the style correct, right down to details like the factory-style wheel covers with whitewalls.
The interior continues the pure vintage feeling. This has the correct-style '57 Bel Air textured inserts in both rows of seats, and the door panels are done to match. The overall impression is a correct and highly original style. That excites people who enjoy a survivor-style presentation. Even the little things are working like the dome light and AM radio. In fact, the only update you may spot is front seatbelts. So you know this is the one you want when it's time for a cruiser that turns back the clock.
Part of what makes these cars a legend is that the Tri-Fives were the ones to introduce the Chevy small block V8. So you'll be happy to lift the hood to reveal the 283 cubic-inch motor - the largest displacement of the era. It has a terrifically honest classic look with the bright block, the cursive script on the valve covers, and a large factory oil bath air cleaner on top. And the Powerglide automatic transmission is a great way to be both vintage and have a proper cruiser. There's even power steering and a modern tread behind the classic whitewall tires style to make sure this is an easy Sunday driver.
This is an iconic classic that you'll be proud to drive to the cruise-in. So at this price, you know you have to act fast. Call today!!!
