The 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air is the quintessential traditional Chevy. With a fresh face lift for the 1957 model yr, that included bigger fins, a revamped front fender and grille, dual “rockets” in the hood, and a bigger 283 cubic-inch Small Prevent V8, the upscale Bel Air sold 47, 1000 units.
Our feature Chevy Bel Air has been adoringly restored by marque professionals Snodgrass Restorations. I have individually seen their work up close up, and it is exceptional. This Larkspur Blue Bel Air transformable has received a comprehensive repair. Paint prep and delivery is beautiful, with great care used. Panel gaps are constant throughout. The bumpers, together with all the other chrome trim, shine as new. Stainless cut is highly polished. Painted metal wheels are topped simply by spinner hubcaps, and covered in proper wide whitewall bias ply tires. The particular glass appears crystal clear plus spotless. The power convertible smooth top has been changed from the original white to the owner’s preferred light blue.
Within the Chevrolet Bel Air, the inside materials and finishes existing as new. The dash is resplendent in two-tone blue paint with metal trim. All gauges are usually bright and fresh, along with clear lenses. Two-tone towel upholstery covers the front plus rear bench seats. Doorway sills are brilliant, along with not a heel scuff observed. Darker blue carpets protect the floor and look showroom refreshing.
The pristine engine these types of the Chevrolet Bel Atmosphere is home to the Super Turbocharged Fire 283 cubic-inch OF V8 that produces 220 hp. The two-speed Powerglide automated transmission backs the Small Obstruct. Proper gloss black color gleams on the fenders, as the firewall has a shiny coating of Larkspur Blue. Every thing presents as correct plus new, right down to the duplication Delco battery with yellowish caps.
The trunk of the Chevrolet Bel Air provides new black rubber pads on the floor, Larkspur Blue for the walls, correct stickers pertaining to jacking instructions, and a completely new bias ply spare using the sticker still affixed.
The standard of the restoration on this Chevy Bel Air is unquestionable. It will be offered for sale in the Barrett-Jackson Chandler, AZ , auction 03 20th-27th.
