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.

Classic Car Overview

Beautifully restored and finished to show-quality standards, this 1957 Chevy Bel Air hardtop is ready for a summer of cruise nights, Sunday afternoon shows, and a lifetime of creating memories. And with only 6600 miles on the build of the this beauty, its going to be turning heads on Main Street for a long, long time. One of the most recognized cars of all time, the 57 Chevy is an icon of car culture, and no matter how you equip it, its hard to make a mistake. Fortunately, the craftsmen who put this car together stayed with the original recipe-Tropical Turquoise paint, an Imperial Ivory top, those gorgeous Bel Air aluminum inserts on the rear quarters, and a period-perfect continental kit out back. Bodywork is laser straight, panel gaps are great, and the crispness of details like the wheel well lips suggest that great care was used in crafting this car. Chrome and stainless-and there is a lot of it on a 57 Chevy-has all been fully restored, including the big ol bumpers fore and aft. The body trim and window surrounds have been polished and smoothed, along with the long trim pieces along the tops of the tailfins. Accessories like the hood rockets, fender skirts, and dual antennas reinforce the 50s nostalgia look. Man, what a great looking car! 1957 Chevys received ten new interior fabric choices, and the top-of-the-line Bel Air was the only series to get the cool black and turquoise patterned fabric found in this hardtop. Beautifully restored to original specs, the front and rear bench seats feature new seat covers in authentic materials that are both stylish and all-day comfortable. The matching steering wheel is beautifully finished too, and the bright machined metal trim that stretches from one side to the other is a nice connection to the anodized panels on the exterior. For the first time, all Bel Airs received full carpeting as standard equipment, and this one also features color-matched reproduction floor mats. The radio hasnt been replaced with a modern unit, which is a pleasant surprise (although it does need some service), and the list of options includes an underdash A/C system, seatbelts front and rear, and an extra set of auxiliary gauges that augment the factory units in the dash. Out back, the trunk is finished just as nicely, including a full-sized spare covered with custom upholstery, a rubber mat, and a relocated battery inside a custom box. The engine powering this beauty is a 350 cubic inch Chevy V8, which is a natural choice for any 57 Bel Air. Dressed to impress in plenty of chrome, the engine bay blings with chrome Chevrolet valve covers, a matching air cleaner, and loads of polished components that really pop up against the light blue firewall and inner fenders. A big aluminum radiator lives up front and as you can see, all the major components are upgraded to modern equipment, including a polished alternator, power steering and brakes, and a serpentine system that drive them all. The TH350 3-speed gearbox channels torque back to the original-style rear end and the recent dual exhaust system has a nice purr to it that doesnt get obnoxious when you get on the throttle. The underside was clearly built to drive and includes newer shocks and undercoating to control noise and heat, but nothing terribly radical. Painted steel wheels adorned with correct Bel Air hubcaps have a cool retro look to them but carry thoroughly modern 215/75/14 rubber to improve handling. Take the time to look at the photos-this car is extremely well detailed and fully sorted and can compete for the big trophies at just about any venue. Values on 57 Chevys are skyrocketing, and next to convertibles, Bel Air hardtops are the ones to own. Call us today and get your piece of yesterday.
