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.

Ride in 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air
This is my 59 Bel Air. I am the second owner, and have owned the car since
March 1978. I paid $75.00 for it, with 58,000 miles at that time. It is
still mostly original, other than it has been repainted, by me, in 1984.
Dashboard still has the factory original paint and gauges. Everything on
the car works great.
Options are, clock, deluxe heater, two speed electric wipers, AM
radio,Tissue Dispenser, parking brake alarm...blinking red light in very
beginning of video... EZI glass...tinted, rocker moldings, vent shades and
license plate pocket guard...gas filler is behind license plate.
The engine is a 348 cid 250 hp turbo
Thrust V-8, that has never been overhauled. It has a 4-Jet Rochester carb.
The power steering is driven off the rear of the generator...yes it has a
DC generator....not a AC alternator with diodes to change the AC to DC
current. Power brakes are Boosted by
factory Bendix Booster. Trans is a 3
speed manual and axle ratio is 3.36 to1.
Driving it from Michigan to Georgia it got 18 mpg and used no oil.

1957 Chevrolet Bel Air 445 HP Hot Rod Restomod
I thought you'd like a look at this extremely clean, custom 1957 Chevy Bel
Air. It's packing a very stoutly built 377 small-block under the hood,
that's pumping out 445 HP. The engine is backed by a turbo 350 with a B&M Converter and a posi rear end
out back with Moser axles. The car also has upgraded suspension and four
wheel disc brakes. This vehicle is built right, there's no doubt. I hope
you find it interesting, thanks for watching!
