FULL HEIDTS CHASSIS, IRS, LS2-SWAPPED V8, 4SPD AUTO, POWER STEERING/BRAKES, WOW!

It's likely that Streetside Classics sells more Tri-5 Chevys than anyone else in the business, so when we say this one is EXTRA special, you should know it demands serious attention. Fitted with modern, fuel-injected LS2 V8 power, an overdrive automatic transmission, and a custom Heidts chassis with a fully independent suspension, this insanely built, one-of-a-kind 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Restomod is about as good as the hobby gets. Look at that gorgeous Black Pearl paint, the bespoke leather interior, and that wicked restomod stance – this '57 hardtop is at the top of its class, and with only 485 miles on the frame-off restoration, it's going to stay at the top for along time, too.
Hard to go wrong with a black '57 Chevy hardtop, and by eschewing the two-tone treatment, this one skips the friendly '50s look and goes right to serious street machine. But it's not just a simple shade of black either, that would be too easy for this one-off wonder. Instead, this hardtop was treated to a tri-coat paintjob – a black base, red pearl overcoat, and gallons of clearcoat to seal it up and give it a blinding shine. The build is very recent, completed less than 500 miles ago, so the finish is very ... Please ask for the full description.

FULL HEIDTS CHASSIS, IRS, LS2-SWAPPED V8, 4SPD AUTO, POWER STEERING/BRAKES, WOW!

Streetside Classics likely sells more Tri-5 Chevys than anyone else in the business, so when we say this one is EXTRA special, you should know it demands serious attention. Fitted with modern, fuel-injected LS2 V8 power, an overdrive automatic transmission, and a custom Heidts chassis with a fully independent suspension, this insanely built, one-of-a-kind 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Restomod is about as good as the hobby gets. Look at that gorgeous Black Pearl paint, the bespoke leather interior, and that wicked restomod stance – this '57 hardtop is at the top of its class, and with only 485 miles on the frame-off restoration, it's going to stay at the top for a long time, too.

Hard to go wrong with a black '57 Chevy hardtop, and by eschewing the two-tone treatment, this one skips the friendly '50s look and goes right to serious street machine. But it's not just a simple shade of black either, that would be too easy for this one-off wonder. Instead, this hardtop was treated to a tri-coat paintjob – a black base, red pearl overcoat, and gallons of clearcoat to seal it up and give it a blinding shine. The build is very recent, completed less than 500 miles ago, so the finish is very glossy and slick, and even though there are some very minor imperfections in the clearcoat left over from car washes (who wouldn't want to constantly be rubbing on this thing?), a buff-and-wax would likely remedy them all. Black means some overtime in the block sanding department and that was time well spent here, and with glittering diamond gloss and only minor flaws to be found in this high-end driver-quality finish, this is one unique-looking car that was definitely done right. The sheetmetal is wave-free, the finish is deep enough to swim in, and there's no way cars coming off the assembly line were ever this good. There was also a sizeable chunk of change invested in the brightwork and trim, from the beautiful chrome bumpers to all the stainless that lines up so well, and including all the Bel Air-specific pieces like the anodized aluminum side trim and hood 'rockets'. Side mirrors were shaved and custom door handles were 'frenched' in for a more streamlined profile, and out back the license plate was embedded into the decklid. It's obvious the builders wanted to show off their high degree of workmanship and skills, and they certainly succeeded.
There's not much 1957 left inside, with gorgeous custom buckets split by a purpose-built center console and spectacular upholstery all around, combining a mix of silver inserts/accents and traditional tan leather. Matching kick/door/pillar panels were created to continue the theme, and even the rear bench was neatly stitched with the same care and quality found up front. The stock Chevy dash was smoothed, reworked, and painted to match the exterior finish, punctuated with an absolutely stunning silver-painted middle section that takes the place of the aluminum trim pieces found in original Tri-5s. The tri-pod gauge set-up houses a full set of Dakota Digital gauges that keep a much keener eye on the upgraded drivetrain, and even though the overall look evokes the spirit of '57, it sure seems sleeker and more high-tech, doesn't it? A sporty, wooodrimmed steering wheel mounted atop a tilt column almost looks like it belongs in a Shelby Cobra, yet it works perfectly in this cabin, and the custom center console actually begins its journey from the center of the dash and continues toward the back seat, and it houses a giant touchscreen multi-media stereo (which includes a back-up camera and navigation), switches for the power windows/locks, a Lokar shifter for the 4L60E, controls for the Vintage Air A/C, and extra storage. With all these amenities you never feel like you're driving a 65-year-old car, and that's entirely the point. Extra sound-deadening materials and plus maroon carpets seal the cabin up neatly, the headliner is a custom piece finished in the same style of the seats, and even the trunk was fully restored to match the cabin – complete with maroon carpets and hidden panels wrapped in tan leather.

That gorgeous 6.2 liter LS3 V8 under the hood has modern tech and horsepower yet still manages a wicked old-school look. The polished intake is distinctive, and it's fed through a custom 8-stack electronic fuel-injection system that harkens back to the street rod builds of yore and atop one of the most durable and torquey small blocks in the world they're great dance partners. The LS2 breathes easily through a set of long-tube headers that feed into a Magnaflow dual exhaust system below. A serpentine belt system and billet pulleys manage all the accessories. The block is covered with loads of billet and polished pieces, including the Billet Specialties valve covers and a giant aluminum radiator with dual electric fans that keeps the whole show nice and cool. Even the engine bay was finished to a high level, complete with a painted and smooth firewall and inner fenders, and even the underside of the hood and billet hinges were fully detailed. A 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive means this is a willing highway cruiser, and huge money was spent underneath – with a full, reinforced Heidts chassis, an independent front suspension with power rack-and-pinion steering, coilovers, and tubular A-arms, and a fully independent Jaguar-style rear end polished up and reinforced with coilovers. 4-wheel disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors stop this smoke show on a dime, and that killer lowered stance is further enhanced thanks to aggressively staggered chrome wheels wrapped in 245/35/19 front and 355/25/21 rear Michelin radials.

Expertly built with all the equipment that makes it reliable and comfortable, this is Tri-5 resto-mod done right. Call today!
