Our background is shot at the Frontiers Of Flight Museum located at Dallas Love Field. We thank them for allowing us to shoot most of our shots at their location. Please stop in and visit the museum when you are in Dallas. We are very proud to present this beautifully restored 57. It is truly one of the finest out there, and as you know, there are many 57s on the market.
There is no mistaking the iconic rear wings of the Bel Air. The fit and finish of the Bel Air are fantastic. The chrome and bright work on this car are outstanding. The Bel Air has the so called "California one piece bumper". Chevy's attempt at air stream styling gives this auto some great features.
We don't have the history of this beautiful Bel Air, but it has been well taken care of. The badging is gold as is signature to the Bel Air. Front bench seats that let you keep your "honey" close to you while driving, were the thing back in the 50s. We also installed a new retro fit updated correct Chevy radio with the newest modern updates.
The quality of the paint inside looks showroom new. Headliner is impecable, as is the rest of the car. Classic Auto Air was just installed by Texas Classic Cars. Perfect for the Texas heat. Beautiful brand new wide whitewall BF Goodrich Silvertown Radial tires 215/70 x 14 were just installed. They look outstanding with 3 spoke spinner hubcaps.
We also installed front disc brakes on this great 57. The car came equipped with a factory power assist on the original drums and we were able to utilize that with the new disc setup. The wheels are new 14x7 instead of the original 14x6. That was done to compensate the new calipers.
Under the hood is a 283c.i. engine with a 2 barrel Carter carburetor, complete with power pack. This part of the car is also impeccable. Notice some of the original tags are in place. As you can see by the body tag, this car was originally Adobe Beige with beige/black/and copper interior. It also came with the tinted glass option from the factory. It was built in the Los Angeles plant and the body was done in Van Nuys.
No hidden rust in this trunk. We have no idea who did this restoration, but whatever shop did it, they should be commended. THis is one of the finest 57 Bel Airs we have had in our showroom. The undercarriage is factory clean. It has been driven though so it's not perfect.
