1957 Chevrolet Bel Air
Car for sale by Smoky Mountain Traders in Maryville, Tennessee 37801
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
Next, we will look at the interior of this 57. On the inside its done in the factory style Black and Gray color combination which provides a beautiful accent to the exterior. When you look it all the little details you can see that it is equally impressive with the exterior as everything is like it would have been new off the showroom floor. All of the seats covers, door panels, carpet, and headliner are excellent. Also, all the gauges are working along with the dome light and the of course the Vintage Air AC and Heat. Looking across the dash the stainless accents are like new and all the paint is as slick as the exterior. The radio has been upgraded to a digital knobbed unit and it has Kenwood Speakers in the back. In the trunk it has the factory style mat and youll notice the battery has been relocated to keep the engine bay clean.
Speaking of the driveline, we will take a closer look at the heartbeat of this Chevrolet. Under the hood you can see that it sports a killer look with a ton of upgrades. We will start with the engine which is a 350 Crate motor that was painted body color. Its set up with Aluminum Heads and a Polished Edelbrock Intake with a Holley Carb. This 350 is dressed in the Chevrolet Valve Covers and Breather. One of the first upgrades we will touch on PRC Radiator Support and Aluminum Radiator with dual Electric Fans to keep this 350 Cool. Another upgrade is the Vintage Air Front Runner kit that really pops under the hood. Also, you cant miss the Billet Hinges and Hood Bracing kit that really does a great job of pulling the entire look together. You can also see that the inner fenders and firewall have been cleaned and painted body color. To go along with the Air Condition this 57 also has Power Steering. The Brakes have are also Power and have been upgraded to Four Wheel Disc with Z06 Calipers on the corners. When you look under this Bel Air you can see that they did an excellent job with the Frame Off restoration. All the floors are detailed in the Red Oxide and all appear to be rock solid along with the frame. The 350 Engine runs to the 350 Turbo Trans and out to the 10 Bolt Posi Rear End with around a 3.55 Gear. This 57 has had a new Gas Tank installed along with New Fuel Lines and Brake Lines. Also, the controls arms have had new bushings installed along with the ball joints and end link bushings.
