Decked in a smooth coat of traditional red paint and sporting a custom
upholstered interior, this red hot 'tri-five' is an exceptionally restored
weekend warrior that is ready for endless nights of carefree cruising.
The beneficiary of a recent frame up restoration, this picturesque '57
Chevy utilizes the highest quality replacement parts on the market to
create a no excuses car with classic good looks. During the extensive
restoration every piece of the body was honed and fine-tuned until it was
as close to perfect as it could get. Once the panels were properly fitted,
a fantastic coat of traditional red paint was professionally applied and
the car was re-assembled into the arrow straight coupe you see here.
Centered in this hot Chevrolets satin black engine bay is a fully dressed,
great sounding 350 cubic inch V8. At the top of that 350 a polished
aluminum air cleaner sends air through a reusable filter into a chrome four
barrel Edelbrock Webber carburetor. Below that carburetor, an Edelbrock
aluminum intake manifold holds a chrome covered coil in front of a
Pertronix Flame Thrower billet distributor. On each side of the intake, new
chrome valve covers sit above loomed Taylor wires and block hugger headers
which send gas into a great sounding true dual Exhaust system. In front of the engine, fresh
V-belts spin a chrome alternator, a polished AC compressor a chrome power
steering pump and billet pulleys behind a correct radiator that's equipped
with fresh hoses, an electric fan and a smooth billet cap.
Underneath the car, a stunningly straight and smooth chassis is finished in
GM satin black, and along with the cars clean suspension parts, hints that
this '57 Bel Air has been frame off restored at some point in its life. The
floor pans are solid and don't appear to have any significant repairs, and
the chassis shows surprisingly little curb rash despite being 54 years old.
Up front, the cars Chevrolet Orange oil pan sits in front of a beefy
5-speed manual transmission that shifts better than any OEM unit produced
in 1957. Holding the drivetrain in place is a clean suspension which
includes the cars correct coil springs inside of upfitted front disc brakes
and recently replaced leaf springs and shocks inside of correct rear drum
brakes. Keeping the car connected to the pavement is a sweet set of 15 inch
American Racing Torq Thrust IIs that are outfitted with traditional knock
offs and 215/60 front and 225/60 rear BF Goodrich Comp T/A radials.
Inside, a striking red custom interior that looks rich enough to be velvet
takes this '57 Chevys visual pop from a 10 to a 15! The stylish, curved '57
Chevy dash is painted bright red to match the exterior of the car, and is
detailed in spectacular stainless trim from door to door. On the left side
of the dash, the cars red and chrome gauge pod includes a bow-tie equipped
speedometer, a fuel gauge and a temperature gauge. In the middle of the
dash you'll find a correct AM radio above controls for the cars Vintage Air
climate control system, and on the passenger's side of the dash a Bel Air
exclusive script complements a factory clock. Below the dash, custom
covered red kick panels flow into spotless red carpet which holds a fire
extinguisher, a chrome Hurst shifter and red rubber floor mats with
colorful Chevrolet crests. The cars fully restored red bench seats feel
firm to the touch and feature stainless trim in front and a center mount
Bel Air speaker in back. At the sides of the seats, custom covered door
panels are detailed with flawless stainless trim and chrome handles, and
above the seats, a custom red headliner hangs custom visors. In front of
the driver, a red tilt steering column is complete with billet stalks for
the turn signals and column, a large Autogage tachometer and a 'cut down'
original Bel Air steering wheel.
Fully sorted and ready to hit the road, this 1957 Bel Air is a highly
desirable 'tri-five' that's been tweaked with all of the right stuff to be
a serious road machine and a weekend trophy winner.
