For sale at REV is a stunning 1957 Chevrolet Bel-Air Hardtop Sport Coupe in Red with a 2-tone Black and Gray interior. This car was restored roughly 30 years ago, with the body off the frame. The paint is very nice, and has minimal imperfections. It is not perfect "best in show" quality, but it is definitely a step above a "driver quality" paint job. The factory 283 V8 was replaced with a mildly built 4-bolt main 350 SBC. The engine has an aftermarket camshaft, which delivers a very nice choppy idle through a set of aftermarket headers, and a full exhaust with glass pack mufflers. The aluminum Edelbrock intake and 4-barrel Holley carburetor with electric choke put this engine at an estimated 325-350 horsepower. The original Powerglide automatic transmission was upgraded to a 4-speed Saginaw gearbox, which is mounted on the floor between the two retrofitted bucket seats and center console from a 1964 Chevrolet Impala. The steering wheel has been upgraded to a tilt column, with aftermarket 3-spoke wheel. The clutch and pedal assembly is a Lokar kit. All of the chrome is in excellent shape, and appears as new. Some very minor age showing on the trim and other brightwork. The body is in excellent shape, with all of the body lines about perfectly straight, and minimal bondo (some in tail section on driver's side, and a little bit in the rear quarters). The underside of the car is one of the nicest things about it; with painted floor pans and a painted frame--it is definitely a car you'll want to place mirrors under to show off of the undercarriage. Under the hood, some billet aluminum pulleys, and an aluminum water pump are dressing for the engine, as well as a nice aluminum radiator mounted to an aftermarket chrome radiator support. The trunk is finished with paneling on all 4 sides, and looks like a show car should. The brakes have been upgraded to a power booster dual master cylinder, and disc brakes on all four wheels. A later model power steering system has also been added. Vintage looking FM radio rests on the dash, and plays through modern speakers. Atop the birdcage, a custom upholstered Chevrolet "bowtie" is resting for all to see. The glass all around the car is in excellent shape, and the four side windows all have a light tint. Aftermarket gauges for coolant temperature and voltage are mounted below the dash, and the factory temperature and fuel gauge is nonoperational. Electric wipers were fitted in replacement to the factory vacuum operated wipers. Aftermarket American Racing Torq Thrust wheels sit on all four corners. Overall, this is an example that you can be proud to own, and is in collector quality condition! Call, email, or text us today for more information!
