Throughout its long history, GM’s Chevrolet Division is responsible for producing many of the most popular models that continue to form the backbone of today’s classic-car culture. Of all, though, Chevy’s wildly successful and handsome 1955 – 1957 Shoebox models rank the top of the list. While some Chevy fans prefer the subtle 1955 and 1956 Chevrolets, others favor the more flamboyant 1957 models. Deft stylistic tweaks for 1957 gave the restyled Chevrolet line a fresh appearance with new frontal styling and design cues including what has to be the most successful application of tailfins ever conceived. A fast-growing list of powertrain options and combinations including the up sized small-block V-8 now displacing 283 cubic inches and added substance to back up the sizzle.
From the beginning, customizers, drag racers, and hot rodders have gravitated to the ’57 Chevy in all its forms by virtue of their low weight, high strength, and low cost factor. Easy to maintain, modify, and repair, the ’57 Chevy could likely be best described as the modern equivalent of Ford’s prewar Deuce. A mainstay of the hotly contested Junior Stock and Gasser classes of the 1950s through the 1970s and beyond, ’57 Chevys also continue to provide the perfect basis for a hot street machine ranging from early ’70s-style Street Freaks to Pro Streeters, Low Riders, and nearly everything in between. Most recently, Bel Airs have been given a Resto-Mod treatment, blending the basic car’s iconic design cues with today’s high-performance technologies, build quality, and welcome creature comforts.
This well-built 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air features great paint and good body-panel gaps. It is reported by the Consignor to run and drive very well, with the air conditioning blowing cold. The car appears to have logged very few miles since the restoration was completed and the odometer reads 250 believable miles. This Bel Air is honestly presented with a recent service rectifying any remaining restoration issues. Recent tune-up, interior trim fit and finish tightening and updated wiring leave this vehicle front line ready and fully sorted. According to a recent inspection, paint-meter readings point to either correct bodywork or the replacement of body panels during the restoration. Honestly presented and represented, this very desirable and well-built ’57 Chevrolet Bel Air resto-mod is a great buy and an outstanding opportunity for a smart new owner.
