Vehicle Story

This 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air comes finished in Tropical Turquoise with a white roof over a custom gray vinyl and tweed interior. On the outside, it is equipped with its reportedly original chrome and stainless steel trim, a set of chrome 5-spoke American Racing wheels, front disc brakes, and dual exhaust finishers. The cabin offers amenities such as refurbished seats, replacement carpeting, a Chevrolet push-button radio, an aftermarket JVC head unit and CD player, and 6”x9” speakers. Power is supplied by a rebuilt 283ci V8 paired with a Muncie M20 4-speed manual that sends output to the rear wheels. This Bel Air two-door sedan is available now from the selling dealer with a clear title.

The car was resprayed in its reportedly factory-issued colors of Tropical Turquoise and white under previous ownership approximately 25 years ago. According to the selling dealer, with the exception of the newer rear bumper, the exterior brightwork, which includes areas such as the dual hood ornaments, side accents, and greenhouse glass trim,  appears to be original to the car.

A set of American Racing 5-spoke chrome wheels wrapped in 13-year-old BFGoodrich Radial T/A front and 17-year-old Goodyear Eagle GT II rear tires connect it to the road. Pictures in the photo carousel to the right show chips in the paint on the driver-side B-pillar and roof as well as the patina on brightwork in various areas.

Inside, this Bel Air features replacement carpeting with floor mats and refurbished seats and door panels covered in gray vinyl and tweed cloth. It comes equipped with an aftermarket wood-rimmed steering wheel, manual windows, lap belts for six passengers, a Chevrolet-branded radio with tape player, a floor-mounted Hurst manual shifter topped with a cueball-style Hurst shift knob, an aftermarket JVC AM/FM radio head unit with CD player, and a pair of 6”x9” speakers mounted behind the rear bench seat. The body-color dash is accented with metallic trim and reportedly houses the car's original 120-mph speedometer, clock, and fuel and coolant temperature gauges. The odometer shows 689 miles, but true mileage is unknown. The current owner put approximately 2,500 miles on the car in their five years of ownership.

The body-color trunk is lined with gray carpeting and contains a spare tire protected by a chrome and body-color cover, a rubber mat, and the factory jack.

Chevrolet offered the 1955-1957 Bel Air with a variety of six- and eight-cylinder engines. This particular car gets its power from a rebuilt 283ci V8 equipped with Power Pack heads, aluminum valve covers, an aftermarket Holley four-barrel carburetor, a Be Cool aluminum radiator, a chrome air cleaner housing, and an Optima Redtop battery. A Muncie M20 4-speed manual from a later-model Chevrolet transfers the engine's output to the rear wheels.

Power braking performance has been upgraded with a dual-circuit master cylinder and front disc brakes. According to the selling dealer, the chassis was previously reinforced on the right side of the rear end and features rust-free floorpans along with aftermarket mufflers and a Hotchkis Sport Suspension sway bar. Pictures of the car's undercarriage are available in the photo carousel.

@Dcrt7i – Ok I'll ask again..dies all the gauges work is there any leaks on the car or does engine burn oil at all ...

The gauges do work. It does drip a little oil as most cars of this vintage do, although nothing major. No signs of burning oil ( no blue smoke, rough running, oil loss, smell).

@Dcrt7i – So I have a question..pic 137 does this show fame damage, and again pic 160 and 163 show frame damage?? I can't really tell what I'm looking at and what your trying to show?.. does all gages work and is there no leaks or burning of oil? ...

Thanks for the question @Dcrt7i Pics 155-157 are the most clear photos of the repair and show the reinforcement plates that were welded to the frame. Photo 137 does show it as well at the top/right of the photo. The location is at the rear passenger area, near where the bumper attaches to the frame. We did have a restoration/body guy look at the repair before we agreed to consign the car and his assessment was that the repair was most likely done long ago ago and has held up very well.

Thanks for taking a look at the 57 Bel Air. As the listing states this is a 283ci/Power Pack heads, 4-speed post car with power steering and power brakes. It's a blast to drive as is has good power, shifts very smooth, handles well and stops on a dime (see drive video). Mechanically very strong. The paint and brightwork show patina as it is an older restoration. This 57 post would be a great car to drive as is or a very solid foundation for a restoration. Many who have seen the car have commented on the the appeal of "the way they used to do it" style. It's simply, old-school cool. Feel free to leave any questions here in the comments section and I will do my best to reply in short order. Good luck bidding!
