1957 Chevrolet Bel-Air Convertible " Sold " 206-533-9600
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.

Judging by a quick glance at its profile, this Bel Air was an extremely
solid piece when its high quality frame-off restoration began. But
nevertheless its body was stripped to bare metal and virtually perfected in
a thorough rebuild that even included a restored undercarriage and a custom
interior. In late 2010, the car's smooth fuselage was covered in a thick
coat of classy green paint and buffed to a wet-look shine. And today, it
sits as one fantastic shoebox Chevy that creates a one car parade wherever

of torque, runs great! Straight from the factory this fully-sorted package
combines a cast nodular crank with powdered metal connecting rods and cast
aluminum pistons to create razor-sharp throttle response and a
Bonneville-flat torque band. The hot engine's air is supplied by a
pinstriped, Cadillac-style cleaner which seals around a big Edelbrock 650
carburetor that's fed by fresh stainless fuel lines. A perfect mixture of
elements is sourced through a high performance Edelbrock aluminum intake
and cast iron heads which are capped by black, "CHEVROLET" branded valve
covers. Fires are ignited by fresh Jegs 8.0 POW'R WIRES which are connected
to a modern HEI distributor. Heat is suppressed by a heavy duty Be Cool
cross-flow radiator that's equipped with a polished cap and a welded and
polished overflow tank. Spent gases are jettisoned through a slick pair of
Sanderson block hugger headers. And the motor keeps turning thanks to a
full serpentine system which spins a chrome alternator and a chrome AC
compressor between a full set of polished pulleys and a full set of
At that back of the torque rich small block you'll find a stalwart turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed which twists thrust
to a traditional GM rear end that feels smooth and contemporary. At the
front of the chassis the car's traditional 'knee-action' suspension, which
has been fitted with shorter coil springs and a thick sway bar, swaps a
traditional manual rack for power steering and a fresh Classic Performance
Products 605 gearbox. At the back of the chassis, familiar leaf springs
combine with lowering blocks, a second sway bar and two inch drop spindles
to ensure enough strength and reliability to counter all the small block's
chutzpah. At the corners of the chassis, fresh stainless lines shuttle
fluid from a familiar power brake Booster to big rotors and modern calipers. The
350 beats a killer soundtrack through a 2.5 inch true dual Exhaust system which features an H-pipe
crossover and great sounding Flowmaster dual chamber mufflers. And power
flows to the pavement through a sweet set of 16 inch steelies which spin
215/70 front and 235/70 American Classic whitewalls around smooth hub caps
and chrome trim rings.
One of this Chevy's most noteworthy features is its great looking leather
interior which was stitched to match its light green body at Armando's
Custom Upholstery in San Jacinto, California. Completely unique, from its
supportive leather seats and sculpted door panels to its fresh carpets and
color-keyed headliner, this supple cockpit looks almost as good as it
feels. At the front of the car a chrome-trimmed dash holds attractive
silver faced gauges, which are complete with a metallic green bowtie, above
a three pack of Auto Gauge accessory gauges and controls for the modern
heat and air conditioning system. At the sides of the car, traditional
chrome handles ride between billet lock knobs, green door frames and
leather-wrapped armrests. And in front of the driver, a painted tilt
steering column spins a traditional Bel Air steering wheel around a
polished shifter and a full set of billet stalks.
With a high quality restoration that's beyond reproach and a custom color
combination that creates a riot at shows, THIS is the kind of build you
simply can't touch for our asking price. Call, click or visit

1957 Chevy Bel Air
The Chevrolet Bel Air was a full-size automobile that was produced by the
Chevrolet division of General Motors for the 1950--1975 model years.
Hardtops in the Chevrolet Deluxe Styleline model range were designated with
the Bel Air name from 1950 to 1952, but it was not a distinct series of its
own until the 1953 model year.
Chevrolet's styling was crisp and clean. Bel Airs came with features
including interior carpet, chrome headliner bands on hardtops, chrome
spears on front fenders, stainless steel window moldings, and full wheel
covers. Models were further distinguished by the Bel Air name script in
The 1957 Bel Air is among the most recognizable American cars of all time;
well-maintained examples, especially Sport Coupes and Convertibles are
highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts. They are roomy,
fuel-efficient, with tastefully restrained, period use tail fins and
This car was purchased in 1982 by a father who wanted a car for his
daughter to drive to school. The daughter drove it for a few years and then
the car was passed on to her brother when he turned 16. After his son was
out of school, the father put the car in storage, as it was rarely driven.
When he fell on hard times 3-4 years ago, he decided to sell the car. The
car was sold to an Ohio man who restored it. He took the body off the
frame. The frame was sand blasted and painted. The body was stripped and
painted 1.5 years ago. The interior was designed by Cars Inc. Cars Inc
custom built this interior for him, and then decided to use it as the
template for the '57 Chevy going forward. It was the first of its kind.
This car has had a lot of love and money put into it, and it shows.

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
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

'CHEVROLET TRUCKS - Chevrolet Trucks are Champs of the Alcan Run, "a road
that lies under Northern skies, toward the land of the midnight sun. It
crosses the crest of the great Northwest, and it's known as the Alcan run".
This military type march, presents the "trucks of the task force fleet" and
shows them driving on the rough mountainous roads.'

The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise
reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound,
though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).
The Alaska Highway (also known as the Alaskan Highway, Alaska-Canadian
Highway, or ALCAN Highway) was constructed during World War II for the
purpose of connecting the contiguous United States to Alaska through
Canada. It begins at the junction with several Canadian highways in Dawson
Creek, British Columbia, and runs to Delta Junction, Alaska, via
Whitehorse, Yukon. Completed in 1942 at a length of approximately 2,700
kilometres (1,700 mi), as of 2012 it is 2,232 km (1,387 mi) long. The
difference in distance is due to constant reconstruction of the highway,
which has rerouted and straightened out numerous sections. The highway was
opened to the public in 1948. Legendary over many decades for being a
rough, challenging drive, the highway is now paved over its entire length.
An informal system of historic mileposts developed over the years to denote
major stopping points; Delta Junction, at the end of the highway, makes
reference to its location at "Historic Milepost 1422." It is at this point
that the Alaska Highway meets the Richardson Highway, which continues 155
km (96 mi) to the city of Fairbanks. This is often regarded, though
unofficially, as the northern portion of the Alaska Highway, with Fairbanks
at Historic Milepost 1520. Mileposts on this stretch of highway are
measured from Valdez, rather than the Alaska Highway. The Alaska Highway is
popularly (but unofficially) considered part of the Pan-American Highway,
which extends south (despite its discontinuity in Panama) to Argentina...
Proposals for a highway to Alaska originated in the 1920s. Thomas
MacDonald, director of the U.S. Bureau of Public Roads, dreamed of an
international highway spanning the United States and Canada. In order to
promote the highway, Slim Williams originally travelled the proposed route
by dog sled. Since much of the route would pass through Canada, support
from the Canadian government was crucial. However, the Canadian government
perceived no value in putting up the required funds to build the road,
since the only part of Canada that would benefit was not more than a few
thousand people in the Yukon.
However, some route consideration was given. The preferred route would pass
through the Rocky Mountain Trench from Prince George, British Columbia to
Dawson City before turning west to Fairbanks, Alaska.
The attack on Pearl Harbor and beginning of the Pacific Theatre in World
War II, coupled with Japanese threats to the west coast of North America
and the Aleutian Islands, changed the priorities for both nations. On
February 6, 1942 the construction of the Alaska Highway was approved by the
United States Army and the project received the authorization from the U.S.
Congress and President Franklin D. Roosevelt to proceed five days later.
Canada agreed to allow construction as long as the United States bore the
full cost, and that the road and other facilities in Canada be turned over
to Canadian authority after the war ended.
The official start of construction took place on March 8, 1942...
