1957 Chevy Bel Air 2 Door Post

VIN# VC57F285330

V (Original V8 Car) C (Bel Air) 57 (Year)

I recently bought out a large private car collection that was never advertised for sale. I’m a licensed vintage auto appraiser and restoration shop owner, sometimes I get lucky, this was one of those times. I bought this 57 and another 57 210 amongst many 67-72 C10 pickups and other vintage vehicles. I restore the pickups as a specialty, I’m selling off some of the other vehicles from this hoard. This 57 Bel Air has been off the road since 1992, stored inside. I got this car running/driving and stopping well enough to drive on/off a car hauler, down the street, it moves under its own power. The other 57 will be listed on eBay for sale when ready. Please watch the entire video and view all the pictures on the link, they show condition well. I drove the car 5 miles to check out major components, no complaints. This car was a real “Barn Find” see pic of the two 57’s on my trailer with the barn in the background.

Click this PhotoBucket link for over 100 pics of this car.



The motor is a strong small block 327 suffix code “MA”, it’s cammed up, feels like a 350HP motor. I installed a good Holley 4 barrel carburetor, new battery, new alternator, checked all fluids. Muncie 4 speed manual transmission M-21 date # P0930, from some quick research came from a 69 Camaro or 69 Chevelle. 12 bolt 1969 Chevelle axle with limited slip posi # 3917184NF. Disc brakes in front.


The body is extremely straight, paint job from the 80’s. The chrome is in good original shape. No signs of wrecks or any serious damage. Car is in great shape, rust spots shown in detail on pic link. I tore out all the carpet and seats to take pics to show condition. Trunk is excellent. I simply can’t point out every flaw on a car like this, please view all the pictures in detail and establish condition for yourself.

I bought this car from the 2nd owner. He owned it since 1976. I have a clean clear WA state title issued in 1976. Please watch the entire video for more info on the title. Most of these cars are rusted beyond repair or have been restored numerous times over the years. Very cool to own this car that nobody has seen for decades. The price is firm at $19,500, it will not go down, we all know how hard it is to find these cars, I think that number is very fair and priced to sell fast. The other 57 will be priced the same, I’m going through it right now, will be listed when completed. That car has been in storage and off the road since 1986.

I welcome 3rd party inspections during not after the auction. I accept bank to bank wire to my US Bank business account or cash in person only within 3 days closed auction. I won't deal with any type of financing. I have an excellent shipping broker whom has shipped vehicles all over the lower 48 for me for years, I will put you in contact with him or work with your shipper. I will delivery this car to the dock at Tacoma WA for international boat shipment for an additional $500, I’m 5 hours away. I USPS Priority you the papers after cleared payment in full. Car or papers don’t leave my shop until paid in full. Package deal on both 57’s is $38,000 firm (I know I’ll get asked). Also have a 55 2nd series 3100 short bed from same collection, plan to get it running/driving next few days firm $15,000.
