LMC is proud to offer for sale this 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air
Some of the most iconic American cars of all time are affectionately known as either the 5/6/7 Chevy’s or the Tri-Five Chevrolets, beginning with the ’55 and ending with the most well know, 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air. The ’57 Chevy had all the characteristics that made the cars of the era so desirable, V8 power, 50’s style full of chrome and naturally those pronounced tail fins! They were available in a full range of body styles including Sedan, Hardtop, Wagon and of course Convertible. They also became one of the most cherished body styles of the era to be turned into mean looking quarter milers or customized which in today’s world translates to a Resto Mod.
This absolutely stunning Pearl White 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air is the complete Resto Mod package for any Chevy or car collector. The previous owner had an intentional focus to create something special and uncommon, yet retain all the very desirable body lines and benefit from modern touches. This Bel Air is finished in bright Pearl White and the look is enhanced with the Gold Chevy emblems. As well, the magnificent front end with the chrome and rubber bullet bumper guards is classic Chevy. Lift up the distinctive ’57 hood with the dual chrome torpedoes to reveal a 350 cubic inch Fuel Injected V8 with aluminum heads which provide plenty of power and reliability. As evidenced by the photos, a tremendous amount of time and money has been invested to elevate not only the engine and accessories, but, also the entire car. Literally, just about every component part has been removed, disassembled, and polished, painted or chromed. Witness the large items like the polished intake and matching valve covers, accessory housings and drive pulleys, polished air conditioning compressor and evaporator, custom radiator, rad cap, top and bottom hoses, all the steel braided lines, chrome master cylinder, hood hinges and springs. In this case, the small details make all the difference as can been seen by the all polished alloy brackets, adjustments rods, reservoir bottle, custom wire heat shields and chromed hood latch. Driving excitement is transferred to the Goodyear Eagle tires mounted on American Racing Torq Thrust Wheels. At the back, the view is equally impressive with the two tail fins, two bumper guards and dual exhaust with all exterior chrome appearing to be in excellent condition. The trunk houses the battery along with a modern sound system consisting of a built in subwoofer box, amplifier and remote CD changer. Open the door, noting the bow tie door locks and you are welcomed into a bright and equally well restored pure White interior. The big comfortable white bucket seats are divided by a full console running up to the dash. The driver has a modern white steering wheel mounted on the original style steering column mounted automatic shifter. The stock ’57 dash has been nicely fitted with modern easy to read analog and electronic gauges. Under inspection one can see the resto was not limited to the top side! The undercarriage is well detailed with the underbody being painted and a beautiful gloss black frame. Any enthusiast, collector or knowledgeable professional can inspect this vehicle and appreciate the time, effort, love and money that was spent to take the car to this level.

This 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air 2-Dr Hardtop truly has it all for the person that wants to just get on the road or for the collector looking for the perfect blend of classic ‘57 Bow Tie Chevy styling with modern reliability and conveniences.
