GORGEOUS CORRECT COLORS HARDTOP, 283 V8, AUTO, COLD R134a A/C, SUPER STRAIGHT
The 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air is THE classic American icon, but not all of them are created equal. You can spent a lot more for a coupe or convertible that has been preserved and restored to this caliber, but it won't draw as much attention as the moment you pull up to a car show and two sets of doors open up on this pillarless hardtop sedan. Then again, with the correct small block under the hood and a cool A/C interior, you might just choose to cruise on by the event altogether.
Presented in its original two-tone Colonial Cream and India White, this Bel Air perfectly represents the idea of a sunny day classic. The investment in a modern respray means there is a terrific shine that's brighter than your nostalgia. But more than just looking cool, the hardtop sedan is actually a rarer classic than the hardtop coupe. But regardless of the amount of doors, you still get that unmistakable '57 Chevy hardtop appearance with the pillarless profile, iconic trim, and dip in the door line. And of course the legend would not be complete without the intricate rear bumper that's crafted into the tailfin design, and the huge chrome front end that looks like a 10,000-watt smile. This one certainly goes for the premium appearance fender skirts, bright factory wheel covers, and a white roof that matches so nicely with the whitewall tires.
Inside, you'll find one of the most striking factory color combinations. The matching yellow vinyl and texture black on the button-top seats, door panels, and dashboard has an eye-catching appearance. Even the carpets and headliner are taut and wrinkle-free. There are crisp, clean gauges behind the highly stylized Bel Air steering wheel. The rest of the chrome on the dash looks amazing with all the right pieces working, right down to the factory AM radio. But this hardtop was meant for cruising with the windows down, and so a modern R134a air conditioning system was added so you can enjoy this pillarless profile much further into the summer season.
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 a nicely detailed engine bay that features a 283 cubic-inch motor. Decked out in Chevy Orange with those great cursive valve covers and huge factory oil bath air cleaner on top, this looks absolutely amazing. The top Bel Air motor of the day even came with a four-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust, so to see it on this sedan properly completes its correct and sporty image. Plus, the Powerglide automatic transmission makes this a great vintage cruiser.
Correct, interesting, and beautifully presented, this is the kind of classic you'll keep forever. So don't miss your opportunity, because it may never come again. Call today!!!
