I always like to find cars like this. Like most classic car dealers, I used to buy cars at auction but you really never know what you're getting until you get them home. This '57 Chevy has been in the same family since 1984. It was sold at a McLeod Auction. I'm sure I was at this auction at the time it was sold...maybe even bid on it. As you can tell I got a lot of invoices and papers. Note, it was restored when it was sold in 1984 and I found where it was repainted in 2003. Matching color #795 Larkspur blue. The interior does not match. It is #679 which is lt. blue and dark blue but the interior is done in turquoise and white and looks great. Anyway I just got it and it will be a month or more before it's ready to sell. We always service and safety check all of our rigs and I want to do some detailing to make it really shine. 283 V-8 and I believe it's the original engine. It was a 2 barrel and it now has a 4 barrel original type carburetor. 4 speed. Power steering is rack and pinion and works great. It was sitting on a hoist when I got there so I got to see the underside. I did find a little rust but not much. I will go over it in fine detail in the video. I think you will be impressed in what you see. Built in Oakland Ca. I have been out driving the Bel-Air around for 2 days and it runs and drives great. I took it to Joe at Old School Garage for it's service and safety check. Does not need much. The heater works but was not getting air flow right and Joe fixed that. This is a convertible worth owning. Make sure you watch the video I go over it very well and you can see going down the freeway. Cond. # 2-. Drager's International Classic Sales 18805 Aurora Ave. N.

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/krlg5kv If you're searching for a sizzling custom that features the absolute best of everything, you've found your next classic! While this hardtop's body received plenty of attention, that work was specifically aimed at creating the most perfect surface possible. And the result is panels that are amazingly flat, displaying nary a ripple or wave anywhere. As expected, those straight panels ensure fit and finish that's significantly above '50s factory fodder. A glossy coat of Torch Red two-stage lends the car a sporty demeanor that most pastels simply can't match. And naturally, that vivid pigment has been sanded, buffed and polished to a spectacular shine that'll equal any classic on any AACA show field. Hoist this custom's shaved hood you'll find a 355 cubic inch, show-detailed V8 that mixes great sounds with excellent horsepower. At the top of that glare-inducing mill, a chrome air cleaner mixes wind from a reusable filter element with high octane fossils that are juiced through a braided fuel line and small Autogage pressure meter. Below that cleaner, a chrome-capped carburetor funnels a perfect air/fuel mixture into a big chrome intake that's flanked by chromed and stylized valve covers. Behind those valve covers, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor sequences spark through loomed Taylor plug wires. Cooling is provided by a painted Griffin radiator that's equipped with a polished tank, a bowtie-branded cap and two quick-spinning puller fans. Charging comes courtesy of a Billet Specialties V-Trac system, which spins a chrome alternator and polished AC compressor above attractive billet pulleys. And spent gases travel from a clean pair of coated shorty headers to large, aluminized Exhaust pipes. Combining adjustable QA1 shocks with pocketed rear springs, this hardtop's boxed and smoothed chassis provides a comfortable, durable ride that's spiced by improved handling. At the center of that Satin Black skeleton, a proven GM turbo-Hydramatic 350 sends torque to a stout rear end that spins an open differential around friendly, 3.42 gears. At the front of that proven drivetrain, aesthetically pleasing power steering utilizes a Classic Performance Products gearbox to make quick work of tight spots and sharp turns. At the corners of the car, large, body-matched calipers, which milk fluid from a chrome brake Booster, squeeze drilled and slotted rotors to supply short, fade-free stops. And all this mechanical goodness rolls on stunning Billet Specialties Legends, which spin aggressive 225/45ZR18 Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs in front of 275/35ZR20 Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs. This Bel Air's streamlined cockpit HAS to be one of the coolest interiors we've ever seen. Power front and fixed rear buckets don soft leather hides that display no significant wear. Between those seats, a contoured, full-length console hides LED courtesy lamps under Vintage Air climate controls, chrome power window switches and a modern JVC head unit. Above that console, a painted dash hangs clean Classic Instruments gauges over polished trim and leather-wrapped air conditioning hardware. And in front of the driver, a polished and bowtie-branded steering wheel spins a half-wrapped rim around a chrome, tilting column. If you're dreaming of the perfect blend of lavish 50s style and modern, reliable performance, you've found the ultimate classic! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com today.
