1957 Chevrolet Bel-Air Convertible " Sold " 206-533-9600
I always like to find cars like this. Like most classic car dealers, I used
to buy cars at auction but you really never know what you're getting until
you get them home. This '57 Chevy has been in the same family since 1984.
It was sold at a McLeod Auction. I'm sure I was at this auction at the time
it was sold...maybe even bid on it. As you can tell I got a lot of
invoices and papers. Note, it was restored when it was sold in 1984 and I
found where it was repainted in 2003. Matching color #795 Larkspur blue.
The interior does not match. It is #679 which is lt. blue and dark blue but
the interior is done in turquoise and white and looks great. Anyway I just
got it and it will be a month or more before it's ready to sell. We always
service and safety check all of our rigs and I want to do some detailing to
make it really shine. 283 V-8 and I believe it's the original engine. It
was a 2 barrel and it now has a 4 barrel original type carburetor. 4 speed.
Power steering is rack and pinion and works great. It was sitting on a
hoist when I got there so I got to see the underside. I did find a little
rust but not much. I will go over it in fine detail in the video. I think
you will be impressed in what you see. Built in Oakland Ca. I have been
out driving the Bel-Air around for 2 days and it runs and drives great. I
took it to Joe at Old School Garage for it's service and safety check. Does
not need much. The heater works but was not getting air flow right and Joe
fixed that. This is a convertible worth owning. Make sure you watch the
video I go over it very well and you can see going down the freeway. Cond.

1957 Chevy in a wrecking yard
Can you believe, a complete 57 chevy belair 4dr hdtp just arriving into a
wrecking yard now, in Oct, 2009. They have to part it out because it came
from a police auction and sold to be dismantled only, it cannot be
retitled, and I would be afraid to own it because the person it was siezed
from may be dangerous, its not worth the risk, it suks, but I don't blame
the police for selling it to be dismantled only, they are protecting
themselves and you. I don't know if they are ready to sell parts off it
yet, but they will soon! See some of the other cars. A 66 chevelle 2dr hdt,

Decked in a smooth coat of traditional red paint and sporting a custom
upholstered interior, this red hot 'tri-five' is an exceptionally restored
weekend warrior that is ready for endless nights of carefree cruising.
The beneficiary of a recent frame up restoration, this picturesque '57
Chevy utilizes the highest quality replacement parts on the market to
create a no excuses car with classic good looks. During the extensive
restoration every piece of the body was honed and fine-tuned until it was
as close to perfect as it could get. Once the panels were properly fitted,
a fantastic coat of traditional red paint was professionally applied and
the car was re-assembled into the arrow straight coupe you see here.
Centered in this hot Chevrolets satin black engine bay is a fully dressed,
great sounding 350 cubic inch V8. At the top of that 350 a polished
aluminum air cleaner sends air through a reusable filter into a chrome four
barrel Edelbrock Webber carburetor. Below that carburetor, an Edelbrock
aluminum intake manifold holds a chrome covered coil in front of a
Pertronix Flame Thrower billet distributor. On each side of the intake, new
chrome valve covers sit above loomed Taylor wires and block hugger headers
which send gas into a great sounding true dual Exhaust system. In front of the engine, fresh
V-belts spin a chrome alternator, a polished AC compressor a chrome power
steering pump and billet pulleys behind a correct radiator that's equipped
with fresh hoses, an electric fan and a smooth billet cap.
Underneath the car, a stunningly straight and smooth chassis is finished in
GM satin black, and along with the cars clean suspension parts, hints that
this '57 Bel Air has been frame off restored at some point in its life. The
floor pans are solid and don't appear to have any significant repairs, and
the chassis shows surprisingly little curb rash despite being 54 years old.
Up front, the cars Chevrolet Orange oil pan sits in front of a beefy
5-speed manual transmission that shifts better than any OEM unit produced
in 1957. Holding the drivetrain in place is a clean suspension which
includes the cars correct coil springs inside of upfitted front disc brakes
and recently replaced leaf springs and shocks inside of correct rear drum
brakes. Keeping the car connected to the pavement is a sweet set of 15 inch
American Racing Torq Thrust IIs that are outfitted with traditional knock
offs and 215/60 front and 225/60 rear BF Goodrich Comp T/A radials.
Inside, a striking red custom interior that looks rich enough to be velvet
takes this '57 Chevys visual pop from a 10 to a 15! The stylish, curved '57
Chevy dash is painted bright red to match the exterior of the car, and is
detailed in spectacular stainless trim from door to door. On the left side
of the dash, the cars red and chrome gauge pod includes a bow-tie equipped
speedometer, a fuel gauge and a temperature gauge. In the middle of the
dash you'll find a correct AM radio above controls for the cars Vintage Air
climate control system, and on the passenger's side of the dash a Bel Air
exclusive script complements a factory clock. Below the dash, custom
covered red kick panels flow into spotless red carpet which holds a fire
extinguisher, a chrome Hurst shifter and red rubber floor mats with
colorful Chevrolet crests. The cars fully restored red bench seats feel
firm to the touch and feature stainless trim in front and a center mount
Bel Air speaker in back. At the sides of the seats, custom covered door
panels are detailed with flawless stainless trim and chrome handles, and
above the seats, a custom red headliner hangs custom visors. In front of
the driver, a red tilt steering column is complete with billet stalks for
the turn signals and column, a large Autogage tachometer and a 'cut down'
original Bel Air steering wheel.
Fully sorted and ready to hit the road, this 1957 Bel Air is a highly
desirable 'tri-five' that's been tweaked with all of the right stuff to be
a serious road machine and a weekend trophy winner.
