Redesigned for 1957 the upscale Bel Air Sports Coupe was an instant smash hit and was the "bowtie" brand's number one selling model accounting for over 10% of total Chevrolet production. The 1957 Chevrolet Bel Airs' owed nothing to the previous year with its sculpted front fenders, distinctive chrome headlights and wide-look front grille. The now famous '57 Chevrolet tailfins were designed to duplicate the new wide-look in the rear and include the V-shaped trim filled with a ribbed aluminum insert exclusive to the Bel Air. Bel Air models also stood apart with their anodized gold trim that included the "Chevrolet" script hood and trunk emblems as well as the fender chevrons. This Imperial Ivory Bel Air is in superb condition and is a great representation of the "one-year-only" body style. The recipient of a recent frame-off restoration, every inch of the full-size Chevrolet has been lovingly refinished. The laser-straight body work accentuates the gleaming chrome molding and trim which is all complete. Also, the terrific spinner hubcaps look just right with the wide white-wall tires. Under the hood is the date-correct Chevrolet 283 cubic-inch V8 with the optional "Super-Turbo-Fire" four-barrel carburetor producing a stout 220 horsepower and is connected to the reliable two-speed "Powerglide" automatic transmission. The Bel Air cruises down the road effortlessly with its optional power steering and smooth riding full-frame design. The high-quality restoration can be seen everywhere - even the undercarriage of the Chevrolet looks like new and is fully detailed with all the correct parts and finishes. Inside the Bel Air is a redesigned for 1957 dashboard, finely detailed with end-to end chrome trim that complement the curvaceous interior cabin. Originally equipped from the factory with rarely ordered air conditioning, this Bel Air has been upgraded with a Vintage Air system for those hot summer days. A 1957 Bel Air is a unique find, especially one this nice. With summer in full-swing, don't miss your chance to own this exceptional full-size Chevrolet gem!
