Classic Car Overview

1957 Chevrolet Bel Air The Chevrolet Bel Air is one of the most recognized and beloved classics of all time. Its clean lines, tasteful trim and excellent proportions make for the 1957 version to be a favorite of the Tri-Five fan. The fins were just right, grille proportions correct, and it is undoubtedly the most desirable of the group. For consignment the highest end car offered in the Tri-Five lineup was the Chevrolet Bel Air. This year it was felt that it hit its mark right on the bullseye with the shapes and proportions. A clean interior and snappy two-tone white over black paint your chance to get into the Tri Five era on a budget. Exterior With Onyx Black bathing the body panels, we note several areas of chipping and scrapes. Mostly straight panels and good gaps abound on this slab sided icon. On the doors in particular there is some rust bubbling on the inside of each door bottom. White paint is seen on the top and has some faults as to fading and minor staining. Chrome is showing areas of fading but is rust free. Trim work is mostly bright and shiny and present well. 14 wide whites are all around and standard wheel covers are present. A shout out to the trunk which appears original and retains its decal and trunk mat. Interior The seating upholstery appears original with silver vinyl bolsters and black metallic pattern cloth inserts, we are in the 1950s. The dash appears to have the original gauges and steering wheel and we can call it patina finish. The door panels are black with silver and show some wear on the handles and a few faults, mostly unremarkable. A radio delete panel is also noted in the dash. Black carpet floods the floors and is showing some wear and fading while a tannish yellow cloth headliner hangs above. Drivetrain An orange engine block resides in this patina engine bay and is topped with a red valve cover. An oil bath air cleaner tops the 1 bbl carburetor. A 3-speed manual is on the back of the and at the rear is a 3.70 geared axle. Undercarriage Some surface rust is noted underneath, body hangers are good as well as the rockers and the frame. Leaf springs and independent coil spring suspension give the ride rear and front. Drum brakes are all around and a single exhaust system is seen. Drive-Ability The car started instantly and came into a nice smooth idle. However, we couldnt drive the car due to the brakes not working. All other functions were working at the time of our test. An iconic Chevrolet design and considered the best of the Tri-Five era which is in need of some TLC on the braking end. The car runs well, and the interior remains nice despite being original. A few dents and dings, some rust bubbling, however a car for someone who wants to spend some time in the restoration area project arena.
