350 V8, 4SPD, RUNS & DRIVES GR8, CLEAN AND SOLID, BELIEVED ACTUAL MILEAGE, NICE!
A 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air is a dream car, especially when it's in a great color combo, has four-on-the-floor, and there's an upgraded to a 350 V8. And just in case you were wondering, yes, this American icon is really that affordable.
While we love all Tri-Five Chevys, we all know the '57 is king. With the jet-inspired ornaments on the hood, wide "V" under the Chevrolet badging, and the extra long tailfin trim, it's everything we want in a '50s machine. Of course, it also helps to have a car has an amazing presence thanks to the period-correct color combo that matches the Matador Red and contrasting India Ivory of that era. Also, when the light is just right, the brightwork comes to life accenting the lines that give this four-door sedan the wow factor. You already know that chrome isn't cheap, and the '57 is literally covered in it. So one of the first things to make sure is when shopping for one of these icons is that all the trim is as complete and present as it is here. Plus, keen eyes will pick up on some extra shine from the chromed Dagmars, as well as the newer wheels that hint at this car's added performance.
Inside, you'll find one of the most striking factory color combinations around. The red of the exterior is utilized again inside, and now it's joined by textured black inserts on the seats and door panels. There are crisp, clean gauges behind the highly stylized Bel Air steering wheel. The rest of the chrome on the dash looks great, and the upgraded AM/FM/cassette radio still looks correct thanks to its bright knob-style appearance. The whole presentation feels authentic, but when you spot the auxiliary gauge trio and the Hurst shifter on the floor, you're instantly reminded that this is hotter than anything the factory built.
The Tri-Five Chevys were the dawn of the small block, so it's always great to see one under the hood with plenty of bright components added. But in a car that also gives you the control of a four-speed manual transmission, we love that the V8 has been upgraded like this one. After all, Chevy wasn't up to the 350 cubic-inch displacement in '57, and a Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor was still a few years away. So these upgrades not only give you more power on the streets, but also they help contribute to the sweet rumble of the glasspack-style dual exhaust. Add in wider, modern tires to this package, and you've got an iconic Chevy that gives you all the right moves.
This is a secretly rewarding classic car – everything from the unbelievable price, to it's even believed that the mileage could be real. So you know something this distinct, powerful, and valuable is a deal that will be leaving us soon. Call now!
