LS1 CORVETTE ENGINE, COLD R134 AC, GREAT COLOR COMBO, ICONIC BEL AIR STYLING!
This is the best way to bring 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.
It's hard to go wrong with a red '57 Chevy hardtop, and by avoiding the two-tone treatment, this one skews more towards the look of a serious street machine. These coupes are an American icon, so they have to look right or else you'll hear it from plenty of people at the car shows. All of it looks amazing from the beautiful bumpers to the gold anodized pieces that are an inkling that there's a potent V8 under the hood. There's even a new set of bright dual exhaust tips that serve as a little hint to some upgraded power under the hood. Of course if it's aggressive accessories you want, the Crager SS wheels are the perfect touch without losing that '57 correct feeling.
Other Bel Air interiors will feel too bright by comparison, because this one deep, dark one gets right down to business. The vinyl bench seats have a great ribbed pattern that's repeated on the door panels and a bit in the headliner. All of this feels tight and pristine like a valued classic should. The black dash is in amazing shape, and all of the components work, including the upgraded AM/FM radio, heat/defrost controls, and even the clock! Below all of this is an air conditioning system running modern R-134a, so you know this is genuinely a cool cruiser. But the one seat that matters the most is the driver's seat. You get the iconic original steering wheel, but beyond that is a full set of Classic Instruments gauges, which keeps you better informed about the motor. So that's a pretty good hint there is a lot going on in the engine bay.
Lift the hood, and you'll see another Chevy icon powering this legendary coupe. It's an LS1 V8 motor from a C5 Corvette. That means the fuel-injection callouts on the fender were not lying, 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 there's less than 25K miles on this V8, we're willing to bet it hasn't lost its punch at all. But power is only part of this custom build. It's mated to a four-speed automatic that's connected to a rear end with the perfect ratio that's set for power takeoffs or all-day highway cruising. Add in rack & pinion power steering, front disc brakes, and modern BF Goodrich tires on all four wheels, and this is a great car that can be driven all day before teaching lesser coupes a few lessons at night.
Very nicely built with all the equipment that makes this street-eating Corvette-powered icon also reliable and comfortable. This is the kind of Bel Air that you've always wanted to own. Call today!!!
