For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/crs9sac
Decked in a smooth coat of spotless black paint, sporting an attractive
two-tone interior and featuring a modern Chevrolet drivetrain, this super
slick tri-five is an exceptionally restored award winner that is ready for
endless nights of carefree cruising.
Logging just 125 miles since a first class frame-off restoration, this
picturesque '57 Chevy utilizes the highest quality replacement parts on the
market to create a no excuses car with classic good looks. When the
obligations of a "correct" restoration are removed, you'd be amazed what a
seasoned fabricator can do to vintage sheet metal. And during this car's
extensive rebuild, every piece of its body was honed and fine-tuned until
it was as close to perfect as it could get. Once that canvas was fully
prepped, a fantastic coat of jet black paint was professionally sealed in a
thick clearcoat shell, the car's panels were re-assembled into
arrow-straight surfaces, and everything was buffed to a glare inducing
Centered in this hot Chevrolet's glossy black engine bay is a fully
dressed, great sounding 350 cubic inch V8 which produces 330 horsepower. At the top of
that smooth small block a polished, "Heartbeat" branded air cleaner funnels
air into a Holley 4-barrel carburetor that's connected to Russell fuel
lines, a Russell fuel filter and a chrome mechanical fuel pump. At the base
of that free flowing Holley, a chrome Edelbrock intake props an MSD Blaster
2 coil in front of a billet points distributor which shoots sparks through
a fresh set of billet loomed MSD Super Conductor plug wires. At the sides
of that mirrored intake, chrome "Chevrolet" branded valve covers hang above
ceramic coated Street and Performance shorty headers which send spent gases
into a great sounding true dual Exhaust system. At the front of the engine a
modern serpentine system, which is complete with a full set of chrome
pulleys and polished brackets, spins a chrome alternator, a chrome AC
compressor and a small power steering pump behind a giant chrome pulley
fan. And in front of that serpentine system, a polished fan shroud frames
an equally large electric puller fan that's mated to a polished aluminum
radiator which is complete with body-matched corrugated hoses, a smooth
chrome cap and a familiar polished overflow tank.
Behind that engine, a new 700R4 4-speed spins torque through a fully
rebuilt Posi-traction rear end that's packed full of stout 3.73 gears.
Holding that road ready drivetrain in place is a fully rebuilt suspension
which includes correct double A-arms up front, correct leaf springs out
back and a fresh set of Monroe Sensa Trac shocks. Modern car turning
characteristics are provided by a fresh power steering system. Short,
confident stops come courtesy of power front disc and rear drum brakes. At
the center of the floor, a custom mandrel bent Exhaust system sends spent gases through an
H-pipe crossover, great sounding Flowmaster mufflers and spotless Borla
tips. And putting the power to the pavement is a sweet set of 17 inch Boyd
Coddington Smoothie IIs wheels that are outfitted with new 245/45 front and
255/45 rear Kuhmo Ecsta radials.
Climb inside this '57 Bel Air and you'll find a great looking black and
silver interior that's every bit as dramatic and cool as the exterior of
the car. Covered in fresh silver vinyl, traditional black patterned inserts
and bright silver piping, the car's bench seats are all-day comfortable and
free of any wear marks wrinkles or annoying creases. On the doors, two-tone
black and silver panels look great behind a familiar array of stainless
trim and chrome handles; and at the front of the car, a curvaceous black
dash is detailed with traditional tri-five stainless, a fully functional AM
radio and controls for a Vintage Air heat and air conditioning system. In
front of the driver, a retrofitted Impala steering wheel spins around a
chrome column shifter, a trio of Auto Meter mechanical gauges and a
metallic silver instrument panel which features a familiar bowtie branded
speedometer. And behind the cockpit, two great sounding Pioneer speakers
hang over a fully restored trunk which features attractive black and silver
accent panels and a hidden remote controlled 10 disc CD changer.

1959 Chevrolet Impala Sport Coupe 2 door for sale 59 bel air caprice biscayne
1959 Impala. Very rare chance and a small window of time at an opportunity
to own a complete car with all trim in tact in running and driving
condition. Video used to help describe the condition. Refer to ebay
auction for the listing to bid on the car. NO RESERVE AUCTION. The car is
very solid over all showing just minor some what recent rookie repairs as
expected on a car this old. The floor pans will need replaced but are
still all there and intact...its not all hacked up. The car looks strait
as an arrow... must see in person. Interior has held up well. The repair
spots that the car does have were done by an obvious rookie or backyard
mechanic showing clearly the areas where is has had minor work done. I
sanded down some spots on the car just for verification of how solid this
car is. It amazes me how well it has held up over the years. Please feel
free to ask questions as I would be happy to help with them. I did not
stress too much on speaking for the mechanical part of this car because the
biggest part about this car is the condition of the car itself. The car
runs great and drives good shifts good and all... the Exhaust and many of the mechanical parts are all
in great shape. Car SOLD IN 6 Days... ON 25 Jan 2013
