Somewhere between ultimate sleeper and ultimate cruiser lies this 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air restomod. After all, it has that classic hardtop appearance, but also there's a modern fuel-injected V8, overdrive transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, and comfy A/C interior. It all goes to prove this is an icon that has both power and poise.
This one instantly stands out. The color is similar to 1957's Sierra Gold, except in a lighter and brighter application that loves the sunlight. And .....
the white roof and whitewall tires come together to give this a classic two-tone. More than just the paint, this car's whole presentation is a testament to an investment in the quality work. The chrome bumpers, grille, and jet-inspired hood ornament are all shining like mirrors. Plus, the full-length trim really makes the coupe look artful. So it's great to have such straight panels to showcase it all. There are the best classic pieces, like the fender skirts and gold logo trim that signal V8 power. But as you look closer, there are a few hints at the upgraded power within. The LED light package, large dual exhaust tips, and larger 15-inch polished wheels help signal how much this classic is also a full custom.
The two-tone color theme continues inside on a very fresh interior. It's also joined by a tasteful and strategic black. After all, the factory-style pattern of the black inserts with cooper-like undertones on door panels and seats look absolutely vintage. But they also serve more purposes - everything from showing off the button-tops of the seatbacks, to coordinating with the durable floor mats that protect the pristine carpeting. If this gives you the impression this is a classic that was meant for driving, then you'd be absolutely right! There are well-integrated comfort features like the retro-style AM/FM digital radio, upgraded speakers, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. For the driver, there's a steering wheel with a classic style, upgraded pedals, and a modern full gauge package that fits into the factory housings.
The engine bay has a sleek look with all the smooth color-matched components. Even though they painted parts of the motor and gave it custom covers, we all know this is not what Chevy gave it from the factory. Instead, this benefits from decades of development with a modern 6.0-liter LQ4 V8, which is part of the very popular LS line of engines. Fuel-injection, aluminum heads, and polished shorty headers all are part of an outstanding power package. But more than just looking great and going fast, this is an all-around thoughtful build. That's why you have a large Griffin aluminum radiator w/electric fans, so the car can stay cool even when you're in traffic with the A/C running. You've also got a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. The undercarriage photos show you how fresh this build is over every inch, and so it feels solid on the road. Add in features like power steering and four-wheel power disc brakes, and you soon realize this iconic Chevy is a great every day choice.
This is the kind of classic that's ready for the open road and draw crowds wherever you park. So if you're looking for the total package, call today!!!
