This 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air is already an awesome hardtop icon. And it only gets better when you see the upgrades like the well-built V8, four-on-the-floor, a leather-lined A/C interior, and full sparkle presentation.
The VIN tells us this was born a real-deal V8 Bel Air, and we all know a \'57 hardtop is always in-demand. That\'s why they made sure the fundamentals look good with nice body panels, uniform gaps, and all the special chrome looking bright and complete. But there\'s something much more going on here. There\'s so much metallic flake radiating off the dark blue finish that it even beats out a starry night in the desert. It\'s the result of a comprehensive wrap around the body. So while you could remove this, we really know the radiant look is what attracted you (and will do that for car show crowed, too.) It gives this Bel Air a real custom attitude. And that feeling continues on cool street machine pieces like the louvered hood, sport mirrors, bright dual exhaust tips, and polished Cragar wheels with extra meaty tires in the rear.
Inside is a custom two-tone gray interior. It looks nice against the starry blue of the exterior, and we know that because the dash was also given this special wrap, too. It\'s a true premium experience with the best upgrades, including supple leather seats, a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner, and cold-blowing air conditioning. And on a custom car like this, the driver gets to feel like a king. The upgraded front bucket seats mean true personal space, and the sports steering wheel on the tilt column furthers this individual-style comfort. Plus, everything from the auxiliary gauges to the Hurst floor shifter get you ready for something special under the hood.
A Tri-Five Chevy like this introduced us to the now-legendary small block V8, and this celebrates that with added performance. The the 327 cubic-inch unit that\'s now under the hood is larger than anything the factory gave in 1957. Plus, it inhales deeply with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority as headers add power while feeding the dual exhaust. And you take firm control over it all with the Muncie four-speed manual transmission. This is built to be a strong total package, and so it\'s also supported by the right pieces, like a Flame Thrower III coil, upgraded cooling, and a new Classic Performance power brake booster. Add in power steering, front disc brakes, and wide BF Goodrich T/As, and this is classic that\'s meant for driving.
This is the icon with extra power and flair, and so you know it\'s the one you want to take everywhere. Call today!!!
