This 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air is a true upgraded icon. The exterior has a brighter glow, and the A/C interior means more comfort. And when you look under the hood, all that big block power tells you this one is going to be a lot of fun to drive.
<br><br> We love the color they chose for this one. It's a deep orange, and so there are plenty of people who will just think it's a shade of red with an extra vibrant glow. This kind of boldness seems right for a Bel Air upgraded for big power. The Cragar SS wheels and wide exhaust tips also add to this attitude while still keeping a classic style. And no matter the upgrades, keeping an eye on the vintage attitude is essential on a car like this. The '57 Bel Air has earned a legendary status as an icon of the American road, and so we like to see it properly represented. The panels line up nicely on this one so that the full-length trim looks like an almost unbroken line. This brightwork is gleaming, and so are iconic pieces like the tailfin insert, dual hood ornaments, and distinct grille. It's an overall package that makes a lasting impression.
<br><br> The interior has a classic two-tone theme that feels quite thoughtful. You have two rows of wide bench seats that look attractive with classic tuck and roll style inserts. The door panels were even done to match. And the carpeting, headliner, and dash all coordinate in a deep black. There's a quality feel everywhere from the good weather-stripping to the
dome light that greets you when the door opens. It's built to be a more comfortable cruiser with well-placed upgrades like cold-blowing R134a air conditioning and an AM/FM/Cassette stereo with CD changer. It's also upgraded to be a better driver with thoughtfully placed pieces, like the wood-rimmed sports steering wheel on a tilt column, B&M floor shifter, and secondary gauges placed under the dash.
<br><br> The Tri-Five Chevys might be famous for launching the small block V8s, but this Bel Air proves that the big blocks fit in the engine bay, too. This 427 cubic-inch V8 was borrowed from a Corvette, and so you just know this powerful heart is ready to run. But you can see they have done the right work to keep it looking tidy. It includes newer hoses, nice belts, clean wiring, and some added polish. There are even good supporting components like an aluminum radiator and a newer battery. The big block inhales deeply with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, and long tube headers let this exhale with power and authority into the dual exhaust. There are other nice upgrades like a stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission and rear traction bars that help get the power to the ground. And power steering, power brakes, and front discs give it a nice all-around cruiser feeling.
<br><br> Here's the iconic classic that checks all your boxes for added power, comfort, and style. That's why this one is so irresistible. Call today!!!
