The 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air is at the top of many lists for the coolest American cruiser. So when youre looking for a true head-turner that also gets your heart pumping, this is the one you want. With sleek red paint, control of a five-speed, a powerful stroker motor, and much more, this is an icon restored to be a stunner and a driver. The red is a product of modern and professional application. We are told the restoration was completed around 2013, and the odometer tells you how far it has gone since completion. So it has been a carefully maintained classic that still has the freshness and vibrancy of a 1k mile build. The low mileage also means that acres of chrome and stainless have a mirror-like quality. This includes the wide grille, bumpers with Dagmars as large as the headlights, dual jet-inspired hood ornaments, and the full-length body trim that ends in the hallmark bright tailfin inserts. This Chevy also loves to show off its sporty side within the whine with the modern 17-inch polished alloys. It makes for the kind of total package where you just know youre going to catch people taking a long look at this one - no matter if its at a car show or you just leave the garage open for the neighborhood to see. The red continues inside, and its joined by black for an inviting two-tone. You can tell they took the time to get the vintage style right just by the upholstery. Its a fresher investment thats detailed with the classic textured fabric and button-top finish. The door panels are done to match, and its all joined by quality coordinating pieces on the carpeting, dash, and headliner. Its the kind of impressive overall presentation that will have you leaving down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop just so classic car fans can get a better look inside. But this one also wants to be a more comfortable cruiser for modern times, and thats why you have upgrades like the custom Autosound AM/FM radio with iPod input, tinted windows, and provisions for air conditioning (the belt will need connecting and it will need servicing to blow cold again.) Its even an upgraded driver with a more modern Chevy steering wheel (a stock one also comes with the sale,) a tilt column, and added temp gauge. Plus, the addition of a Sunpro tach and a Hurst floor shifter really give this 57 Chevy a fun sports car vibe. The engine bay loves to use the dark and slick inner walls to funnel your attention to the upgraded heart in the middle. The Tri-Five Chevys were the dawn of the small block, but they were never given anything like this. The 383 stroker V8 is a younger powerhouse from the masters at BluePrint. So it continues the small block legacy, but now in a big block level of displacement. It has the right go-fast goodies like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an aluminum intake, and ceramic-coated headers feeding the X-pipe dual exhaust. And the upgraded five-speed manual transmission means you get even better ratios the factory was offering to properly harness the extra powerful V8. Plus, features like power steering, power brakes, front discs, and an aluminum radiator with electric fan are there to keep this an easy cruiser. This Chevy has had a thoughtful level of investments to be sharper, more comfortable, and an all-around fun power driver. Thats why you know this will be a deal thats moving fast. Call today!!!
