1957 Chevrolet BelAir Custom

Complete Frame-off Restoration to a very high standard
SBC 350 Crate Engine and TH350 Transmission
Custom Interior
Vintage Air Conditioning  

Originally a Texas car, this ’57 Chevy underwent a comprehensive, frame-off restoration completed in 2004.  It was built with driving in mind and is a great cruiser on the highway and around town as well.   

The exterior carries the classic lines of the 57 Chevy and pride of workmanship is evident.  The paint is a custom mixture of GM Pewter and Platinum Pearl.  The result is sheer beauty!  All bright-work is in excellent condition and the fit and finish is excellent.  The stance is imposing with 2” dropped spindles on the front and the rear springs have been lowered 2 ½”.  This beauty sits on Nitto tires and the wheels are American Torque-Thrust II’s.   

Mechanically the car is equally impressive.  The engine is a crate 350 equipped with an Edelbrock Performer Intake Manifold and 670 cfm Holly Street Avenger carburetor.  The chrome accents(including the PRC Aluminum Cross Flow Radiator) and the clean finish to the engine compartment really capture the attention.   The MSD ignition and headers are mated to a stainless steel exhaust providing a sound that displays confidence!  The transmission is a Turbo 350 and the ’63 Chevy rear-end has 3:08 gears which will keep this car running smooth for years to come.   

The custom plush interior is built for comfort and convenience.  The Isuzu Rodeo bucket seats and the console provide an awesome driving experience and is finished in gray pear soft touch and shale leather as is the trunk.  Custom steering wheel, B&M Quicksilver shifter, premium stereo system and dash present extremely well.   

Auction Estimate:  $45,000-50,000
