For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/6unbnbm You'll have a hard time finding a '57 Chevy that's straighter than this one. Once the obligations of a "correct" restoration are removed, you'd be amazed what a good body man can do to vintage sheet metal, and this car is proof. The panels, including the doors and those unique quarters, are amazingly flat and straight, without a single ripple or wave to be seen. Gaps are excellent—just look at the way the hood fits and how tight the gaps truly are. And then there's the paint, which is two-stage urethane that has been wet sanded and buffed to a spectacular shine beyond anything that you're likely to see on an AACA show field. The color is so rich and deep that it seems to hover over the bodywork, inviting you to look deeper. In 1957, the top motor was the fuel-injected 283, but today this Bel Air packs a modern-tech LS2 cribbed from a Corvette. With six liters and 400 horsepower, it's a lot more power than Chevy engineers ever envisioned for the workaday Chevy. Nevertheless, it's a neat fit in there, and putting a small block Chevy in your Chevy is never a bad idea. This one also retains all the Corvette's accessories, including the alternator and power steering, as well as A/C by Vintage Air and a dual master cylinder with power assist, so it drives like a new car. All the metal pieces took a trip under the polishing wheel before being installed, and the Corvette's plastic coil covers were treated to a matching coat of bright red paint. Up front there's a massive aluminum radiator with electric fans, and a custom fan shroud that neatly fits around the conical air cleaner that feeds the engine—a very cool custom touch. Custom inner fender panels were fabricated to hide wiring and plumbing, yet still give unrestricted access for service. Backing up the Corvette LS2 is a 4-speed automatic transmission and the original Chevy rear end hangs on re-arched leaf springs to give the car a slightly lower stance. The front suspension is augmented by tubular A-arms and a new power rack-and-pinion steering system. Spectacular red paint covers the floors, but the frame is gloss black, which creates brilliant contrast, especially when you throw that bright stainless steel Exhaust system under there. And no respectable resto-mod is going to go cruising with that much horsepower and ordinary brakes, so this '57 wears a vented and cross-drilled disc at every corner, front and rear. Choosing the right wheel for your resto-mod is always difficult, but I think you'll agree that the builder nailed it on this one with a set of 17-inch Boyd Coddington billet aluminum hoops wearing performance radials. This car really stands apart from the crowd inside, where a gorgeous custom tan leather interior has been stitched up, and I don't think anyone was worrying about the cost. Both front and rear seats have lovely new covers that feature custom stitching and seams that line up almost perfectly. New door panels were created to match, but use the original trim and handles to tie it all together. The original gauges have been replaced by Classic Instruments that have cream-colored faces that are almost exactly the same color as the leather. Overhead, a custom tan Haartz cloth top was created, including a glass rear window, and it folds neatly into its well where it's covered by a matching tan boot. Finally, the trunk has been upholstered to match, and proudly wears a large Chevrolet emblem and matching side pockets in the trim panels. With just 42 shakedown miles since it was completed, this is exactly the kind of car that ends up on the covers of magazines and taking home the big awards at shows. With a build cost of over $165,000, this car obviously represents the best of everything, and it all works as it should. If you've been looking for the ultimate shoebox Chevy, you may have just found it. Call today!
