Vehicle Story

This 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air 2-door hardtop is finished in red with two-tone red and black interior and is powered by a rebuilt 350ci V8 paired with a Muncie 4-speed manual transmission.  This Bel Air is said to have been a Southern car most of its life and a full restoration effort was carried out in Georgia.  Equipment includes performance engine components, Wilwood brakes, and upgraded suspension throughout.  This Bel Air is now offered with a clean Massachusetts title in the seller’s name.

The car was repainted by Sterling Customs Hot Rod Shop in Blue Ridge, Georgia.  The restoration was completed in 2019 and included all-new sheet metal on an original shell that was taken down to bare metal. The windshield and rear glass were both replaced at the time of the refinishing.

The wheel setup includes custom aluminum 18" Boyd wheels with 225-45-18 tires up front and 275-35-20 tires in the rear.  The chrome bumpers and bright work are said to be in good condition according to the seller. Suspension enhancements include tubular control arms, a front sway bar, as well as two-inch drop spindles up front and two-inch drop blocks in the back.  The braking system has been upgraded with a power brake booster controlling Wilwood calipers and drilled/slotted brake rotors up front, and drums in the rear. The car is also equipped with power steering.

The interior was redone in 2019, upholstered in two-tone red and black in simulated leather from CARS inc. The carpet, door panels, and custom Lloyd floor mats are fitted, and the dash is color-matched to the exterior paint.  The car is equipped with modern air conditioning as well.

The gauge cluster is the original style with a 120mph speedometer flanked by gas and temperature gauges. Currently, the odometer shows 4,684 miles which was reset to zero at the time of restoration. The stereo head unit is from Custom Autosound and includes a smartphone auxiliary jack for the 3 speaker stereo.

The car is powered by a rebuilt 350ci Chevrolet small block V8 fitted with an Edelbrock intake and carburetor as well as a PerTronix flamethrower distributor. and an aluminum radiator. The transmission is a Muncie four-speed manual with a Hurst shifter. The seller notes that the car will soon need the steering column bushings replaced.  The seller also states that there are 4,700 miles on the drivetrain and about 1,000 miles since complete restoration.

Additional photos showing the underside are provided in the gallery. The frame and underbody have been cleaned and painted and a dual Flowmaster exhaust system was added during the restoration.

The sale includes a custom car cover, 2 sets of keys, and documentation of work performed.

Looks like a great restoration.........but for one thing.......the wheels. What is it about everyone thinking 18 and 19" wheels make a classic look good? The good thing is that it's soooo easily correctable.
