A radiant iconic style on the outside, a full custom A/C setup on the inside, and a powerful fuel-injected V8 under the hood. You might have already fallen in love at first sight with this 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Hardtop restomod, but it only gets better the deeper you dig.
Black Cherry is a terrific modern hue that perfectly blends a sophisticated dark presence with just the right tone of red excitement. And it has the kind of miles-deep finish and metallic pop that rally lest you .....
know there was a ton invested in this finish. And with less than 4,700 miles on the full build, it continues to have an award-worthy luster today. The '57 Bel Air hardtop is one of the most sought-after icons around, and so this one makes sure to uphold that desire with acres of chrome and stainless that have a mirror-like quality. This includes the wide grille, bumper package, dual jet-inspired hood ornaments, and the full-length body trim that ends in the hallmark bright tailfin inserts. Fresh weather stripping, straight lines, doors that shut solid, clean glass, and crystal clear headlights add an overall feeling of a thoroughly built car. Those polished Ridler wheels with 17/18-inch front/rear setup add shine, while also reminding you this is a powerful custom coupe.
One look inside and you know they had a big budget for the interior. It starts with the ultraleather bucket seats up front. These not only have better bolstering than anything that came out of the 1950s for superior comfort, but they also power adjust for the ideal individual position. The supple tan color on these front seats is not only shared with the rear bench, but also the steering wheel, trunk, and custom door panels for a nice coordinated package. Plus, the black cherry returns on the dash for a uniform presentation that car show judges love. This is a great place to spend some time with upgrades everyone will love like an armrest center console, cup holders, a retro-style AM/FM/cassette Stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. But in a car like this, the best treats are reserved strictly for the driver. You get a Lecarra steering wheel on a tilt column, and beyond that, the white-faced Classic Instruments gauges give you a full picture of what's going on under the hood.
The engine bay has a striking look with smooth inner walls and plenty of polished components. But you can also instantly tell this is a proper powerhouse built for performance. The best '57 Bel Airs had a small block V8 with mechanical fuel injection, and so this one takes the spirit up a notch. It's a 350 cubic-inch V8 with Ram Jet electronic fuel injection. The V8 fires up eagerly like a proper FI machine, and it exhales with a nice tone as headers feed the dual exhaust. There are also good supporting components, like a Griffin aluminum radiator with dual electric fans and the battery mounted in the trunk for better weight distribution. The upgrade to a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission gives you a stout unit that can handle power, and it also provides overdrive comfort. Plus, there's power steering, power brakes with front disc, and deep treads on the modern sport tires.
This is the iconic coupe upgraded to be a build that leaves you wanting for nothing. So the only way you'll be disappointed is if you miss this custom '57 Chevy. Call today!!!
