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.
1957 Chevy Belair
This is my dad's 1957 Chevy Belair. ;) A very sexy car. My camera is sucky
so the sound of the car isn't as great as it is when you actually hear it.
It's MUCH louder, obviously. =) The burn out wasn't exactly what we wanted,
but better vids will be posted soon. ;) My dad does restoration and
collision work- he's had this car since he was 16. It's been re-done quite
a few times, and it was finally finished up about 2 years ago. ;)

'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...

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.

A Military 1957 Chevy Bel Air 2drhtp's Honorable Discharge
Before you get your hopes up on this RTE 66 icon - let me confirm if she is
actually for sale! I was informed this is a soldier's machine by I believe
his wife, who THINKS, I repeat, THINKS the shoebox is up for grabs. I will
not pursue this one if he still wants her (If this were my machine and my
wife tried to sell without authorization - I would sell the wife). All
glass is good, straight complete rust-free body (except for bumper), with a
hopped-up 350 engine and hood. Not completely original, but for a rare
restorable version of the quintessential American dream machine - you
cannot be to exacting. Stay tuned for updates. I have not talked to the
owner yet (phone tag), but he has relayed the car IS for sale. I have now
discovered this car has been here since 1971 and the owner is accepting
offers. the original 283 and 3 on the tree are gone, the car runs and is
driveable. His ballpark figure is not divulged, but I am sure he knows the
value in this condition.
