1957 Chevrolet Bel Air 4 Door Sedan Without question, the 1957 Chevy is one of America\'s most iconic images. From being instantly recognized around the world to its top ranking among diehard fans of GM\'s bowtie and general car enthusiasts alike, this single model year has seen it all since introduction. Its competition credentials were felt not only on the quarter-mile, but also on the ovals–both dirt and paved. It\'s been chopped, lowered, modified and lovingly restored. The \'57 Chevy has also been replicated countless times in die-cast and molded plastic guises, ranging from 1/87 scale right up to 1/12th–even fiberglass go-kart bodies have been produced in its image. And its picture has hung on countless bedroom and garage walls. For consignment, a 1957 Chevrolet 4 door sedan in Bel Air trim. It has had an earlier restoration, sports a newer, (1965), 283ci V8, and lots of replacement panels to remediate any rust. Then it has all been bathed in Harbor Blue and Larkspur Blue two tone, has pretty of chromed trimmings, 4 doors, and is like a new pair of blue suede shoes. So it\'s one for the money, two for the show, and three to get ready now go cat go! Exterior At the front of this five-seven hangs a bright Chevrolet crest and polished parking lamps between chrome trimmed eye lid-esque headlights and a broad bumper and a fading gold egg crate grille. Also we see some round turn signal lights in thick bezels and rubber tipped Dagmars on either side. At the top of that grille, a domed hood centers polished spear bullet and rocket tailed spoons in front of wrap-around glass that\'s draped in polished frames. This is all steel straight with well minded gaps, and is bathed in Harbor Blue. At the base of those frames, polished wipers, a factory driver\'s mirror and traditional door handles complement flashy trim spears and elegant Chevrolet scripts in grandmother\'s handwriting within the ever widening silver and ribbed stainless panel in the rear quarters. Undulating chrome is on the sills and this frames the lowers for the roof line which is bathed in Larkspur Blue. At the back of the car a second broad bumper frames the trunk line lower, and a second colorful crest. Edge trimmings form a Z on the tail fins as they ground themselves on the bumper. Smaller flame shaped tail lights reside on the bottoms of these Z\'s and a backup light is within the bumper just below and chromed tipped exhaust is coming from under the bumper. Simple Larkspur Blue painted steel wheels with standard wheel covering the hub are wrapped in thin whitewall rubber on all 4 corners. From the curved glass to all the chrome, you can burn my house, steal my car, drink my liquor from an old fruit jar ,and do anything you want to, but don\'t step on my blue suede shoes! Interior Featuring a stunning array of light and dark blue vinyl, this Chevy\'s carefully restored interior is both clean and impressive. At the center of the cockpit, firm bench seats wear a retro amalgamation of light blue vinyl bolsters with dark blue white thread stitched tuck and roll broadcloth inserts. Some dark blue piping is on for extra bling to these benches, front and rear. In front of those seats, a full metal jacket dash forms round wide steel bezels bathed in light blue and house round black faced gauges and a lineup of small round lights in deep chromed bezels just above these gauges. These circles border on a square weave pattern chromed strip that runs the length of the dash, and houses some knobs and pulls, the radio which is now a digital readout AM/FM/Cassette version, and a rectangular clock in front of the passenger. Fronting the dash on the driver\'s side is a light blue bakelite steering wheel with a complete circle horn right in the center. Just below the chromed square weave strip is another horizontal band which is back to the dark blue paint just like the all steel dash top. Here the heater control buttons and a glovebox are seen and ju
