1957 Chevy BelAir 4 Door Hardtop
A number of years ago, this car was in pieces and parts undergoing complete restoration to fulfill a dream. When the owner passed unexpectedly, his brother acquired the car and worked to not let the dream go unrealized. The car was completed about 6 years ago and is a very nice car.
The car required minimal body work and was re-painted to factory color, but with the additional of some pearl in the paint. It is a striking looking car. The stainless trim is original to the car and in good condition, and new bumpers from Ecklers were installed. All the glass is good and the interior is completely new from the carpet to the headliner, also having come Ecklers. All the gauges and components work.
Mechanically the car has received some upgrades. A 383 stroker was installed pushing 300+ horsepower. The Muncie 4 Speed was rebuilt and was the Posi-traction rear-end. The front end suspension was rebuilt with the front brakes converted to disc brakes. The drum brakes on the rear were re-done as well.
A nice car that will make a great driver for someone looking to cruise around in style!
