As strongly linked with American car culture as the ’57 is, it’s hard to believe that Chevy’s original intention was to come out with an entirely new look that year, but plans were delayed and the folks behind the Blue Bowtie set about making changes to the existing design – hitting an undisputed home run in the process. The resulting more aggressive front grille and bumper and more pronounced tail fins are represented in exemplary fashion on this ’57 via its straight appearance and sharp badging. Cloaked in an appealing shade of red, with off white accents on the rear quarter panels and an enhanced collection of chrome on board via its top tier designation, this Bel Air positively glows with vitality and its exterior alignment is on point.
Below the hood, things remain in largely stock configuration, somewhat of a departure from the norm that’s good to see from time to time. The 283 cubic inch V8 at its center is period correct and appears to be nicely maintained, showing a cleanly painted block, heads and valve covers and a compact chrome air cleaner on top. The vintage small block pairs with a 4-speed manual transmission whose shifter is mounted on the tunnel for easy access and an upgraded alternator sits in place of the original generator to provide far more reliable starts and overall operation.
Cloaked in an appealing shade of red, with off white accents on the rear quarter panels and an enhanced collection of chrome on board via its top tier designation, this Bel Air positively glows with vitality and its exterior alignment is on point. The paint has a great shine to it, as well as a uniformly smooth texture. The tastefully inclined stance strikes a nice balance – noticeable enough to convey a taste of customization while not going so far as to compromise this classic’s ride.
