1957 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 Additional Info:

While the Bel Air and their anodized quarter panels get all the attention, he humble 1957 Chevrolet 150 2-door post coupe makes a claim for being the cleanest of the '57 Chevys. With trim that echoes its older brothers in the Shoebox Chevy family, he 150 gets by with a minimum of flashy trim, et retains that timeless 1957 look. This very handsome coupe is the recipient of a very high-quality restoration with a few tasteful upgrades that make it a fantastic cruiser and a casual show car that can be driven with pride.There are few better colors on a '57 Chevy than bright red, nd the finish on this car is very nice. Bodywork was well done, nd there are no signs of previous damage or repairs, ust clean sheetmetal. Detailing is crisp, nd with the 150 trim on the quarters, he slight dip under the rear window is much more pronounced, iving the car more character that's often lost in the over-abundance of chrome on the Bel Air. Speaking of chrome, he bumpers, rille, nd other bright parts have been refinished to a very high standard and you'll note that extra time was taken to ensure that all the stainless trim lines up properly. Correct Chevrolet badges have been installed front and rear, ith the stylized 'V' that symbolizes V8 power under the hood, nd all the glass is bright and clear. Nothing has been shaved or removed, nd externally, his car is a lot closer to stock than it would appear at first glance.Inside, ou'll find an all-new interior with a clean, imple look, rom the black seat covers to the very cool pleated door panels. New black carpets are on the floor, overed by matching black rubber mats with inset Chevrolet logos, nd overhead there's a fresh headliner that's taut and wrinkle-free. The original gauges still live in the dash, nd they've been augmented by a set of auxiliary gauges hanging underneath. That shifter looks like it should be controlling an old-school manual gearbox, ut it's actually connected to a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission. The original radio still lives in the center of the dash and is joined by a Grant GT steering wheel that updates the look just a little. The trunk is proof that this is a super-clean car and also packs a vintage bias-ply spare tire and jack assembly.The engine is a 350 cubic inch V8, hich, s a small block Chevy, as an easy swap. Topped by an Edelbrock carburetor and Holley intake, t's a strong runner that sticks to the tried-and-true formula. A few chrome dress-up items add a bit of sparkle and there's Chevy Orange paint on the block, o it's not really breaking any new ground, ut that's not really the point. A modern dual master cylinder was installed for safety and long-tube headers dump into a true dual exhaust system with a pair of Flowmaster mufflers and cool angle-cut tips under the rear bumper. The aforementioned TH350 3-speed automatic transmission feeds the original rear end, o this car is a pleasant highway cruiser and it sits exactly right thanks to a stock-style suspension and a set of traction bars out back. It rolls on a set of chrome REV wheels and recent 235/15/17 front and 285/40/17 rear performance radials.It's amazing what a difference a few pieces of trim make. Without the big Bel Air panels, his super clean 150 looks like an entirely different car, ne that's lighter and better suited for battle on the streets. Give us a call today!
