Classic Car Overview

The 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible is arguably the most iconic classic American car. Its truly apple pie pride on wheels. Theres a magnetism from this patriotism that make everyone needs to check these out at car shows, or give a polite honk when one of the few passes by. It only gets better when you see such a clean and complete V8 drop-top idol. This 57 Chevy was completed in Matador Red, and so its hard not to fall in love instantly. After all, we couldnt have given this more of a classic American appearance unless there was a Babe Ruth baseball in between the jet-inspired trim on the hood. This was a pivotal year for the Tri-Five design, and of course, we love these for the unique brightwork. The full front end that combines the bumper and grille; the gold trim that symbolizes V8 power; and the full-length trim with bright fan-style insert to add extra emphasis to the sharp tailfins. There was a restoration later in life, and this has been treated with respect ever since. So the presentation is straight, clean, and impressive. Nothing has been shaved or removed, so this one feels genuine, right down to the fender skirts and factory-style wheel covers. While we love these rare convertibles for the top-down cruising, take a moment to appreciate the full package. The white folding roof matches so nicely with the iconic whitewall tires, that this Bel Air has a great profile on any day - no matter if the sun is shining or not. The top has a smooth power action, and all you have to do is flip a switch to open this Bel Air up to the world. Inside, youll find one of the most striking factory color combinations. The exterior-matching red vinyl is combined with silver on the seats, door panels, and dashboard. It has an eye-catching uniform appearance that makes you proud to show this convertible off to the world. The stylized steering wheel, AM radio for display, plush carpeting, red convertible boot cover, and button-top seatbacks are all part of this detail-oriented appearance. Under the hood is a year-correct 283 cubic-inch V8. This was the largest of the new small blocks made available at the time, and it really helped the 57 obtain its legendary status. With a history this important, youll love showing off this time capsule of an engine bay. From the big black air grabber, to the stylized Chevrolet script on the valve covers, this is an attention getter. The Rochester four-barrel carburetor lets the V8 inhale deeply, and the newer dual exhaust gives this a dignified V8 tone. This is the kind of car thats built for showing off, and so you have good driving features like power brakes and a Powerglide automatic transmission. Youre looking at the ultimate droptop for many of us. So if youve been looking for one of these icons, you already how rare it is to find one this complete. Dont miss out, call today!!!
