1957 Chevy Bel Air Convertible Classic Muscle Car for Sale in MI Vanguard Motor Sales
http://www.ClassicCarBuyingSecrets.com Click now for an instant download on "How to Avoid the 7 Deadliest Mistakes of Buying a Classic Car Online"! The 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible has been at the top of almost every collector's wish list for decades now. As a result, prices have skyrocketed to the point where investing the equivalent of an Ivy League education in restoration is not a fool's errand anymore. Today the trick is finding a clean '57 Bel Air convertible that you can drive and show with equal enthusiasm without dropping six figures on a concours example. With a frame-off restoration not too long ago, this one is a great choice. This white'57 Bel Air ragtop is the ideal car for someone who prefers to drive their toy on the road instead of onto the back of a trailer. This convertible has always been stored in a climate controlled building, and has only been driven 3,800 miles in the last 16 years. The white power top on this convertible works like a charm and is in beautiful condition. None of its original good looks or authentic 1950s flavor has been diluted. This Bel Air has a beautiful, straight and rust free body. There are no waves or orange-peel. The margins and gaps make for a quite nice overall fit and finish. The chrome and trim is stellar. What's the point of a '57 Chevy if it isn't an eyeball magnet? It's simply gorgeous in person. The strong running 283 V8 under the hood is the right motor for a Bel Air you're going to drive. Its reliability and performance is beyond reproach. The motor has been nicely painted and is very clean. The generator/power steering pump combination is present, along with the heating components. There is a new battery, and the radiator looks to be in great shape. The firewall looks to have the original paint, and the wheel wells and core support have a nice paint job, showing no rust or damage. This is one beautifully maintained, original style engine bay! Behind the motor is a '57 Chevy automatic powerglide transmission, matched to the original rear end. The solid undercarriage is nicely painted, and the X-frame shows no pitting or rust. There have been quite a few updates to this '57 including, new shocks, new gas line, new flex lines, as well as hard lines for the drum brakes. The springs are in good shape as well. The Bel Air stands apart from other 1957 offerings with its simply stunning two-tone red and silver interior. Using red vinyl and textured silver vinyl inserts, it creates a dramatic driver's compartment that's both functional and stylish. Heck, just look at those door panels if you don't think these cars are art. Even the black carpets are unmarked. The straight and clean painted dash matches the steering wheel, and even the horns work. A closer look at the speedometer also reveals that the shift indicator has been modified to match the 3-speed automatic transmission, and the mileage shown is since the restoration was complete, so you know this car is fresh. Overhead, a new white power top folds easily and stashes beneath a matching red boot. In back, the trunk offers a correct rubber mat, matching full-sized spare, and a complete jack assembly. If your enjoyment of a great old car involves getting behind the wheel and heading down the road, this is the perfect Bel Air to accompany you. The updates greatly enhance the road-worthiness of the car, and are easy to reverse if you suddenly decide that concours competition is where you'd like to go. In the meantime, it's a gorgeous, high-quality car that will be a hit anywhere it goes and bring a smile to the face of everyone who sees it.

132634 / 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/dypeek7 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 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. # 2-. Drager's International Classic Sales 18805 Aurora Ave. N.

132380 / 1957 Chevy Bel Air Convertible
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!

more at http://auto-parts.quickfound.net '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.' Public domain film from the Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. 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). http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcan_Highway 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...
